The people writing negative reviews I'm sure have no taste buds. Gentlemen Jack has such a moreish taste. I love it. The double filtering makes a difference to the initial hit, it creeps in after a few seconds and that warmth appears pleasantly. I rate it higher than makers mark & buffalo trace.

I must admit I'm not a Jack Daniels fan but aa a whiskey lover I decided to give it a try. I I I was first charmed by the sweet and wooden scent but was greatly disapointed by the (absence of) taste. Frankly this is nothing but an expensive rot gut for drinks. Better off with Crown Royal or Buffalo Trace, just to name a few, in this price range.

To be perfectly honest this is vulgar !. Reading some reviews below more so the review from @Rubbish this person was been kind with his review but I do disagree with the part he/she says about smoking. I don't smoke because I've got asthma but my old man does and he has been on many of whisky trails with me and he has hit every tasting note I did even more he actually can detect the same as some of the malt masters and did so before the Malt masters could utter a word. Jack Daniels is very deceptive once you smell its sweet aroma you would expect the taste to have been sweet as its the sugars you can smell but once it's been through your mouth leaving a trail of limitless bitterness you are let down big time by its vulgar undertones of tannins reminiscent of red wine. I had a bottle of Old no7 and its best used as windscreen washer fluid as you get that sweet smell every time you wash your windscreen with it and at least you won't get any vulgar surprises this way. Stay away from this stuff buy a good single malt and try some whisky from the people who invented it !.

I am a fan of original number 7 and drink it straight as well use for mixing drinks. Gentleman Jack however, I only drink neat. It would be shameful to mix ice or cola with this beauty.

When I want to spend a bit more that I do for Old.7 GJ is perfect. Well rounded, smooth with just the right bite.

Switched from Scotch single malts to bourbon a few years back Gentleman Jack and Tenessee Honey both do it for me. GJ is the perfect 'drink it neat' sipping whiskey and TH is a great bourbon for drinking neat, over ice or with a mixer over ice to make a long cooling drink.

This smells lovely (better than No 7 even) but the taste is just a wall of burnt wood and shoe leather marinated in Old Spice. I dig some folks (smokers presumably) need or want epic in your face stuff like this to drink but the rest of us should probably just pick up a bottle Beam White Label for half the price (literally) and enjoy 2 fingers on the rocks. Its so much nicer. To describe this as complex would be laughable, but compared to even Beam's cheapest bottling, which is in itself not very complex, Gentleman Jack is hugely disappointing. Now to be kind: I found GJ was actually more enjoyable than some cheaper blended malts like Grant's and Chivas 12. But given the price that's hardly a win. 2 stars from me. Don't buy this. Buy a decent Bourbon, there are dozens in this price range!

I love coke and wanted something to mix with it. After several failed attempts of trying Jagger, Kesslers, crown, and regular Jack. ...I decided to give gentleman a try and the results. ...love! ! Makes for a terrific smooth drink :)

nothing like gentleman jack. I agree it's smoother than black label. I also drink some scotch offerings but I have to say this is a pleasure to drink and reminds me of home in the Southern United States. Highly recommended for someone starting to explore whiskey.

Had a taste of this bourbon a few months back with some friends on a night out and decided to get a bottle.
When I tasted the first glass of my new bottle it tasted very different than the one I tasted the first time, It was less sweet, the caramel seemed almost absent, and it felt much stronger in alcohol%.
Left it it open a few times and after a while it changed completely, very much like the first time I tasted it.

This is a bit weak for my taste - tried the first few on ice. Finally went neat with it and the experience is much better.

This really is great to sip. Super smooth and well worth the money. I am a regular $150-$200 Scotch drinker but this is an easy, cheap & cheerful drink. Much better value than the Single Barrel and worth the extra $$ over the black label.

Quite remarkable, very smooth and distinct flavour due to the double charcoal mellow process.
My favorite American whiskey by far. Also love the bottle, but thats secondary ;)

Simply delicious. I thoroughly enjoyed drinking this.
14th August 2012
One of the most delicious drinks I have ever had the pleasure to experience. I don't consider myself an expert on these things but there is a definite banana thing going on here, especially on the nose. As always in my opinion, drink straight.

I have not developed the palate of tis site's official reviewer but this is an easy whiskey to appreciate. Obvious vanilla and maple syrup make it my preferred "dessert."

True sipping whiskey has a beautiful smooth finish don't judge it by the cheap Jack Daniels offerings this is worth the extra expense.

Very smooth a very nice drink
