Gentleman Jack

40% alc./vol.
This Tennesse whiskey is filtered on charcoal before the barrel is put and, in the unique case, before bottling. As the packaging indicates, the Gentleman Jack is the sweet side of the traditional Jack Daniel's that is filtered once.

The little spicy original entry into the mouth disappears quickly enough to give way to the sweetness provided by double filtration. Light menthol and medicinal finish, accompanied by a taste of raspberry jujubes fresh out of the box. Very approachable (democratic?). Go everywhere and accessible to introduce new fans to whiskeys, but sadly lacks personality and singularity.

The funny man from Lynchburg who walks in a trench, perhaps ready to open it, looks suspicious. Smoked with plastic and vinegar, there is something strange and inappropriate, both in the nose and mouth, to the point of asking questions about the method of manufacture. The final is in vanilla and excuses a little more than ordinary beginning, although we still find the extraterrestrial plastic. A funny tide disparate, but when the waves are not beautiful ... and when in a tasting of JD is the glass in which it remains the most ...

On the nose, spices and very light smoke. In the mouth, vanilla takes up a lot of space and leaves very little spice and burnt notes. The finish is rather short and inexpressive. Still well balanced if you take into account that the goal was to make a whiskey easier to drink. I do not need a whiskey that's easier to drink.

Fan of Jack, this bottle is for you, for others, I recommend the single barrel 20 $ more, although ... Beautiful signature of Jack Daniels with the avalanche of red fruits, liquorice, a silky and downy nose, draped sweet caramel waves very nice. The palate is punctuated with notes of chocolate and oranges, tinged with tasty notes of cinnamon and red licorice, then sweet caramel. Really tasty and very approachable. We quickly understand why this whiskey is so popular with fans. Once the flavors fade in the mouth, the spices rush with more force. We also feel more obviously the 3% more alcohol. The finish is super sweet, with a few spices and flavors from the oak barrel. For 3 $ more, you have 3% more alcoholic strength, for 20 $ more than 4-5%. In any case, the backbone of Jack Daniels is present, in any case you will make a pleasant purchase. For novices, the basic edition is a logical choice, this edition 43% will also offer a nice variant for fans. But personally, I think the whiskey trippers will deserve to add an extra 20 $ and get the pot-luck of the single barrel at 50%, just '' because you deserve it '' (sic).

A nice gift at a reasonable price for Jack fans. At this price, I'll go get another bottle! Alert collectors! More intense and more "bourbon" than the "ordinary" Jack. Nose: Beautiful fruity fragrance with red licorice, caramel, chocolate and oranges. Burnt wood notes. Appetizing. Taste: Burnt wood, spices, touches of fruit (including cherry), smoke, burnt toast and black licorice. Finale: A beautiful length, marked by burnt wood and cherries.

Jack Daniel's 150th Anniversary - 50%

50% alc./vol.
To celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Jack Daniel's distillery registration, the Master Distiller has created a unique and exclusive liquid, combining traditional whiskey making techniques with the distillery's modern craftsmanship. True to the historical recipe, the grain used for this whiskey is the same one used for Jack Daniel's Old No 7. Filtered drip, through a layer of three meters of charcoal maple before being put in new American oak barrels, this liquid is an authentic Tennessee Whiskey. For the occasion, the coopers of the distillery revisited the barrel toast as it was made in 1866: a slow toasting to extract all the richness of the flavors and aromas of the wood. Once filled, the casks were placed on the "angels perch" of one of the oldest warehouses located at Coy Hill. Prized for its ideal location, Jack Daniel's casks have been aged for generations. Altitude and sun exposure create a perfect climate for maximum interaction between whiskey and wood.

Fruity nose, very typical of traditional JD and bourbon flavors as well; wild red berries, oranges, nectarines in their juice, burnt marshmallows, charcoal and burnt oak boards. The alcohol level increases the intensity of the flavors. Superb soft and pleasant texture. Spicy finish, worn on charcoal wood, red fruits on steroids, bark of red apples, lots of oranges and nectarines in Jello. A whiskey of indisputable quality, with distinct patterns and interesting flavors. In fact the distilleries like Jack Daniels, Bowmore, Highland Park being in a class of their own have to be practically compared to each other (editions of the same distillery I mean ...). In this sense, appreciate the 50% alcohol content of this edition at 150 $ versus the Sinatra edition at 45% and 300 $, but selling this '' limited '' edition does not justify its value versus the editions Single Barrel at 55 $ which I believe remain a better overall purchase. But hey, if you're fans ...

Nose: once a slight wave of alcohol passed, a familiar character of JD comes back to us. Vanilla, corn, smoke and oak are classics at the rendezvous, with beautiful spices highlighted by the alcohol content. Palate: much sweeter than I expected. We stay mainly in coal and corn. Vanilla and spices follow suit to take us to the final. Leather and wood cover everything. Final: we stay on the wood and smoke, well coated in an unusual red fruit syrup for the distillery. Balance: a nice surprise for a Jack. If the price is not too prohibitive, it can be a nice addition to your Tennessee Whiskey collection.

Well, finally, JD has also just given something up to the expectations of its hardcore fans of more punchy whiskeys. The moumounnes had their JD Honey and Fire (flavored with cinnamon). This new edition Barrel Strength delivered at rates ranging between 60 and 65% alcohol comes topping the crazy idea of ​​bottling single barrel 47% alcohol ... A nice addition to the portfolio of the distillery soon available in the North American market. So a big thank you to John Breckon for the sample (much needed). Very soft nose, alcohol relegated to the background. On the nose, corn cereals tame the alcohol content with brio, the nose is sweet at will, we also feel pretty much the charred oak barrel, red fruits, licorice and red apple. In the mouth, I'm surprised because I was expecting an uppercut of alcohol in full face but the whiskey is still quite sweet even if it shows first its relatively high alcohol. The sweetness of cereals is obvious but it seems that the alcohol level also brings out the rye spices. The flavors on the palate are typical of the style, the red fruits, the apple, the licorice, an enviable sugar level. The finish is super long, fruity and very punchy in alcohol. Beautiful addition to the portfolio, failing to show originality, we compensated by the alcohol and single cask versions. Between the version 47% and this one I remain ambivalent.

One of the best whiskeys I've ever tasted, all categories combined. And, yes, a traffic jam on the part of Jack Daniel's, the septic will be confused! Nose: OMG! Serious? Jack Daniel's? But what a sublime perfume! Stunning sugars, enjoyable black cherries, intriguing herbs, a touch of molasses burnt and a hickory note. Palate: The experience is incredible, with beautiful spicy and woody flavors in the foreground. Drier than expected, with always sweet, oily and black cherry notes, but also with infinitely more subtlety than the nose foreshadowed. Finish: Long and tasty, with spices and burnt wood.

The nose is surprisingly vivacious for such a low percentage of alcohol. Honey and maple syrup cover the distinctive wild fruits, the sugar is pronounced even if the nose remains initially raised by spices and some woody dryness. The mouth lacks passion and consistency, honey, vanilla and maple sap practically annihilate the representative elements of the style. Some fruits get a supporting role but are so made up that we hardly recognize it under the sweet and honeyed fabric. By letting the whiskey breathe, the nose returns a little more in line with the style, just in time for the final where - finally - the fruits, spices and liquorice finally appear. Only the spices will support the very volatile finish supported by strong notes of red fruits and fresh savate. For the price of 149 $, I find very expensive paid for a final rendering so ordinary.

Patrick 82%
A rare and interesting variation on the theme "Jack Daniel's", but nothing to make me forget the good old #7, which remains much higher. Nose: Honey oak with a touch of maple syrup and a good spicy background. A Jack Daniel's topped with honey? Palate: Beautiful spices reminiscent of a rye, but some cherries covered with honey remind me that corn predominates in the recipe. Oak and vanilla complete the whole. Final: A little short and fortunately dominated by spices.

Jack Daniel's Gold Medal 1954

The Gold Release collection commemorates the gold medals mentioned on the label of each Jack Daniel's bottle. Each offers a flavor slightly or completely different from its sisters. However, it is never difficult to recognize the style of the distillery, marked by fruits, burnt wood and spices.

Made in generic bourbon here with the usual flavors of vanilla, corn and oak barrel. The nose is sweet and sweet, corn cereals are prominently displayed, some honeyed notes sprinkled with spices. The mouth is oily and sweet, a little too fleeting and fluid, I personally find it a bit too generic and without particular accents. The corn grows even more in the mouth, notes of honey and cinnamon give it some variations although the whole remains very bland and respectful. Final monotonous and predictable. Jack Daniels type "too good Jack", too soft and lacking nuances.

Patrick 84%
We recognize the oily corn of the Jack, but it is also sweeter and less smoked on the nose. In the mouth however, the intensity it seemed to miss the nose comes back in force. Burnt oak (or even burnt toast) is very powerful, leaving little room for spices and corn. Those who love caramel in their Jack will be disappointed, but those who love it will be happy! The finish stretches long and agreeably on a burnt note. Well balanced but a touch less complex than the regular Jack. Located between the Single Barrel and Black Label #7, a whiskey that I will have fun drinking by the fire during the holiday season! Interesting for the enthusiast considering its reasonable price. He will make a very appreciated gift.

Its color is more orange than red, in the waters of an orange Fruitopia. Nose: From the outset, the corn, caramel and vanilla from the US hits us. Even less smoke and coal than the original, but without neglecting a good dose of more carbonized wood. Palate: Quite oily in the mouth. Oak, vanilla, especially spicy corn. Already that the original Jack enjoys a reputation rather "male", this one is crunching cowboy. Finale: Long finish of corn and spices, filtered through a layer of charcoal, such as the whiskey itself. Balance: A check mark above the original, a superb summer sipping whiskey. It remains that it is not for the chochottes. If you've ever been sick on the Jack in your younger days, save yourself!

Small trip in the northern woods of Kentucky to Mononcle Daniel. On the nose, you get the impression of being much closer to the Derby than to Nashville, with the grain of bourbon then the maple. In the mouth too soft, first bourbon followed by more typical charcoal, before the final rather short and a little too limpid. It goes away, but rubbing closer to the bourbons, it does not really make the weight.

The rickety Ethiopian version of the regular Jack Daniels. On the nose, the taster is able to see that whiskey offers flavors known to traditional bourbon lovers; cherries, pepper, waxy fruit, vanilla and finely burnt caramel. But all the flavors are tasteless and highly diluted. In the mouth, spices are more energetic even if the texture leaves something to be desired. It's as if the whiskey lacks conviction to assert itself as a worthy representative of the style. Very smooth all the same, the corn offers its letters of nobility through a pleasant sweetness. An orange fillet filters even through the sweet cloth, red licorice and cherries. Short final, playing on notes of spices and sugar, waxy fruit. Between this edition and the regular edition, I prefer the second which has more panache and substance.

Patrick 83%
On the nose, similar to the "Black Label", but more delicate, almost vanilla. To taste, the notes of burnt and caramel are less present and give way to a small fruity. The finish seems to lack punch at first, but stretches long enough on spices. Interesting, but does not have the scale of his illustrious brother.

RV 83%
Softer than the original, less vulgar / more diplomatic but also a little too good. More focused on vanilla than its black bro, filtration in the maple looks different and has amassed more sugar. As sweet on the palate, the wood awakens to be well standing in the throat with tannins and caramel. The aftertaste descends just as gently and although he is better balanced than his colleague, he is a little too quiet.

Northern Tennessee: harder for maple but better for whiskey. Much closer to bourbon than the normal Jack Daniel, right from the nose you'd think the maple charcoal filter is thinner than usual. First the old bourbon rope of the past, then in the mouth very pungent even though it falls a little too quickly. The finish is a little more to the Tennessee tradition, not very long except the burnt maple that is finally being felt. A nice combination to get fans of Jim Beam, and even if it's not my style, it's a very nice compromise.

Jack Daniel's Old Nº7 Brand

Tennessee whiskeys are not bourbons. The main difference between Tennessee whiskey and bourbon is the fact that the whiskey is filtered through 12 charcoal feet, a process that takes several days to complete, softening it considerably. And this little "detail" makes it illegal to call this type of whiskey a "Bourbon".

André 85%
Very liquid. The fruits appear little by little as soon as they enter the mouth. Wild fruits, sugar, honey and lemon-citrus on the finish. Not better than another whiskey. in my opinion, his name and reputation are overestimated. Not unpleasant but far from singular or particular. But without a doubt, an excellent value, easily findable wherever you are.

At nose. thick, oily, smoke, dense, corn syrup. Taste: Sweet, fat, burnt notes, toffee, toast, etc. In the final: Sweet, fat and toffee! Also a smoke / burnt note that stretches! A superb whiskey too often denigrated by connoisseurs. Personally, I always have a bottle at home.

He raises his glass to conjure up a coppery sunset of the American Midwest. Nose: Sweet corn has a hint of vanilla and orange toffee. Although I attribute it to what I already know about this whiskey, I still have a tenuous impression of natural charcoal from Costco. Generally much shyer than in my teenage brush memories. Palate: Particularly surprising delicacy. The syrupy corn remains pleasantly long in the mouth, balanced by a small sour note. The following sips bring a hint of star anise to the table. Final: Wow. It is definitely here that this expression exercises a trick of sorcery. A wind of hibachi smoke sweeps over my sinuses. Delicious. By closing my eyes I can literally see the Lincoln County process. Then surprise, the sugars come back. Yet the longer the sips advance, the more the bitterness that balances the syrup takes the place and discourages me to use another. Balance: Definitely more than a shooter when we linger. The most underrated whiskey. Forget your youthful drinking, everyone is entitled to a second chance ...

If I had grown up in Lynchburg, surely I would swear by this one, but having first met the richness of the scotches, I find it good but nothing more. On the nose, it is smoke but otherwise, a bit more sour and much more creosote than single malt. The arrival is just as sour (a little too much for my taste) and the final is very smoke though transient, with very little aftertaste, except for the sour which goes up quietly. Art is there but it's not my style.

Jack Daniel's Rested Tennessee Rye Batch #2

André 81.5%
After years of conservatism worthy of the Republican Party, to see appear almost suddenly, 2 new issues of this distillery at the same time well known but also offers us little variation on its flagship products, is almost destabilizing. With JD Single Barrel Proof Barrel (60-65% abv) and JD Rye, it is to wonder if even majors are not also heckled by the wave of micro-distilleries that abound throughout the United States . On the nose, the rye is velvety and distinctive, full of very red wild berries and candy teddy bear gelatin, feeling almost soapy. I must admit that the dilution 40% seems unambiguous nose which is a little soft and faded. On the palate, a touch of oak, some typical rye spices, thin layer of pepper. The texture and the embarrassed assertion of the whiskey disappoint me a lot. Over time, the spices seem to go back in power and adorn themselves with a pinch of black pepper, cloves and black cherries. The finish is more pointed, it seems that the spices continue to increase in power, the texture remains silky and pleasant, softened by red fruits and cherries. A beautiful caramelized is also apparent in the nose after a quarter of an hour in the glass. Without being the style that will shake your whiskey habits, this rye is nice and easy to appreciate. On the other hand, its lack of complexity and the low alcohol content disappoints a little. For a similar price, I prefer to keep my Single Barrel at 47%.

Patrick 90%
My expectations were high, and they are not disappointed! The rye at its best: Complex, well balanced, punches and all at once. I love. Nose: Generous and complex fragrance of rye. In fact, a bowl of cereals with berries. Really appetizing and complex. Taste: Complex, with spices, cereals, fruits, burnt oak and even a touch of chocolate. Wow, everything is there, and even more! Finish: Medium and tasty, marked by spices and a little chocolate.
