A top-selling bottling from the Jack Daniel distillery, the mashbill is made up of 80% corn, 12% rye and 8% malt. The spirit is filtered through 10 feet of sugar maple charcoal to produce a mellow, slightly smoky character, thus making it Tennessee whiskey...
Nose: Light with plenty of sweetness. There are hints of dry spice and oily nuts, a touch of smoke.
Palate: Quite smooth and soft with notes of banana milkshake, a mixed nut note, a touch of caramel with crème anglaise.
Finish: Sweet with a little cereal sweetness and toasty oak.

Its good whisky
23rd March 2017
Mucho Dulce y Acaramelado, Algo de Humo y Madera Tostada, Muy Excelente para los Mix.
13th March 2017
Not my favourite (by a country mile) but this is a real crowd pleaser. Smooth, sweet, fruity and spicy. Pairs incredibly well with Coke and becomes something different entirely. People knock it all the time but you can expect that of any popular whiskey - everyone likes the underdog. What Jack Daniel's are trying to do, they do INCREDIBLY well - hard to knock them for it. Great job. Not my choice but I'd happily sink a few with cocke.

There's absolutely nothing to this whiskey. It's just so mellow, it's as if it's the essence of whiskey. While the bottle I got for Christmas was appreciated, it was mainly used in cocktails and for making BBQ sauce. In the same price range or cheaper, Buffalo Trace is clearly better, as are Jim Beam White Label and Devil's Cut, and even Aldi's own brand Clarke's Bourbon, which is significantly cheaper.

I like it as a reminder of what mediocre is. Makes me appreciate the top shelf a little more.
22nd December 2016
I feel that smells like nail varnish and highly alcoholic .... sin, once was superb ...
16th December 2016
If you honestly think standard JD is good whiskey, you owe it to yourself search this fine website for other bourbons in the same price range.America produces some incredible tasting premium whiskey, it also produces decent value for money whiskey. This is not it.Even if you just want to mix it with cola, or down shots, you can do much better for the same price (or less!).

Jack Daniels tastes like it's made of bananas

24th November 2016
A nice whiskey that I enjoy with a couple ice cubes. The sour mash is a staple for me and it can be enjoyed neat, watered, with ice, or mixed. The choice is yours.

Very nice whiskey
27th October 2016
I love jack daniels but I wish they would raise the alcohol rating up to 90 proof like it used to be before 1986 so I can taste it like it was meant to be...maybe they can make special editions of 90 proof old no. 7.
23rd October 2016
Very nice whisky really very good
15th September 2016
I have to say I always hated whiskey until I tasted the pure Amber liquid that is Jack Daniels!! It is an honest earthy flavour, refined but not overly so it gives a pleasant kick, warms the body, reminds you that all is well if everything was so honest! Not flowery, but still earthy, never tastes anything other than warm and comforting
2nd September 2016
Okay, in my Southern California middle-class city it's $17.99 for a bottle at the grocery store. The Glenlivet, generally the cheapest single malt, is on sale for $28.99 at one liquor store, but generally runs $32. Walker Black is usually about $32. Chivas 12 if you can find it runs about the same as Black. You get what you pay for. JD is a markedly inferior spirit to the Scotch stalwarts. JD is notably smooth and easy drinking, and that's a distinction in itself. It's not hot, cheap moonshine. The flavor is bananas. Literally, JD tastes exactly like bananas. It's also sweet akin to a banana, but dry in the finish as the wood does some work. Not much else going on, really, except bananas. There's the suggestion of black pepper if you tune in to it. Thin feeling in the mouth, JD is noticeably thinner than a thin blend like Black or Chivas. Certainly pleasant over ice, and economical. The Budweiser of whiskey. That's not always a bad thing.
19th August 2016
Thin & light it has a Butterscotch, Werther's Originals & Modeling glue on the nose.A Butterscotch, Vanilla & Nail Varnish Remover plate.And on the finish it tastes like a 12 of July Bonfire , Burnt Wooden pallets & Car Tires & all. giving it a strange bitterness but oddly no burn at all.Filtering the esters out.... Seriously! Lincoln County Process for the loose...& g0d man get some age on your expressions will ya Jack!

Seriously, this stuff is harsh. A very solventy start with a caustic finish that leaves you wondering if they forgot to burn off the fusels during the distillation process.
19th May 2016
I am a fan of Jack! Not to be confused with bourbon. Jack stands on its own. I personally like Tennessee Whisky over Bourbon. There is a difference. I have had many bourbons, but nothing beats J.D Tennessee Whiskey
14th May 2016
Feels like polimers are melting in mouth
25th April 2016
Big number 1 for a reason. Smooth and easy drinking, unique banana taffy flavor along with vanilla Carmel and char. Goes down like candy.
For people who have no idea about whiskey.
22nd April 2016
You just have to laugh at these armchair 'experts' who, 5 years ago, never tasted whiskey/scotch/bourbon in their lives, now they are experts in the field.
8th April 2016
Awesome American whisky is all that describes it.
20th March 2016
Not bad at all, too thin body but better then most blended and Highland Speyside.
17th March 2016
I have no idea why this is even popular. The nose is pure chemical and the taste is pungent and assaulting almost like vodka or pure grain alcohol.
7th March 2016
There's just something so off putting about it. Tastes of random chemicals, harsh and unpleasant. I prefer a good Canadian Rye Whiskey over this, a lot smoother and better flavors. I have no idea why JD is even popular.
29th February 2016
The nose is just glue, industrial solvent and molasses. Tastes thin and overly sweet. At this price range there are way better whiskies you can buy
7th February 2016
Nice whiskey. I need in India
30th January 2016
I am a newbie. Yet, even if I tried some nice whiskies, like Glenfarclas 21, I am still able to make a difference from a good to a poor one, even if I cannot understand/taste at this moment, all the complexities.I drink as I was told by connaisseurs, and I liked the nose. But I really don't find this drink remarkable. The finish is really bad for me and I don't understand how this can be called a great whisky, even for its price. Adding just a very few $, you can have a Glenfiddich 12. Maybe I am not used to bourbon, maybe I prefer cherry casked ones. I am still curious to try the Single Barrem and/or the Silver Select.
6th January 2016
Nope, not my taste.
I prefer this to JW Double Black, which is more expensive and IMO a failed product. JD is easier to drink (JW DB feels complex but takes you nowhere) less burn and a friendlier finish. The smell is very sweet, reminiscent of bananas and green apples, and could be a bit misleading. The taste is not exceptional but it is simple and straightforward and I can appreciate that. Giving it 5 stars makes no sense, and 1 star even less so.
3rd January 2016
Simple and accessible in Brazil. Has a good price, a pleasant flavor and as all say, combines well with Coca-Cola and coconut water. Those who criticize both should understand that each has a taste and the main, not everyone has money to exit buying everything to try!
2nd January 2016
There is simply no other wiskey. It's JD or nothing
There is no colouring added. There can't be under the American legal regulations that govern its production.
1st January 2016
I don't really understand why some enjoy it's taste but its taste isn't pleasant at all. It's good with cola and only with that.
31st December 2015
Old #7 is a Tennessee sour mash. Please don't confuse it with bourbon!
29th December 2015
Please bring the cinnamon flavor to duty free on airports and in India because these are the only places where I can buy it and I love that flavor

Go to the store, buy the cheapest lipstick you can find, take a bite and sip some cheap whiskey...presto, Jack Daniels.VILE.
13th December 2015
Won a litre at golf ,thought I was made.Stuff is revolting ,I do homebrew beer and once every year or two I do a suspect bottle!!!!This has to be worst thing "ever".Sometimes I buy/acquire a cheap bottle of whisky ,never ever had anything as bad as this stuff.Can it be possibly be a bad batch???
10th December 2015
Awful. Smells nasty. Tastes of burned caramel - which is probably just the colouring. Burns like acid.Nothing redeems this grog. Its nasty overpriced rubbish. Buy some Buffalo Trace or some Bulleit for the same or less. There's a reason this stuff can't be called Bourbon. And its not just the one they put in the PR brochure.
5th December 2015
Very nice in taste and price worthy of 1 Ltr of Bottle
29th November 2015
For the price, it's still a very decent whisky. Smells like vanilla, bananas interwoven with oak (not much of it). Same on the taste, but washes down pretty quick since its only 40 ABV. I recently bought a 375ml of it for the first time since last time I drank some (when I was 20, and over did it quite a bit) and after tasting fine bourbons and scotches, this is very decent whisky. Nothing complicated.
26th September 2015
This whiskey certainly has a lot of advertising, but it just doesn't deliver on flavor. Bitter and astringent, like mouthwash. Use Coke or another mixer to mask the awful taste.
24th September 2015
JD & Coke! Simples......... I prefer Jim Beam & coke myself, but JD does the job also. Not a serious whiskey, but it does what it says on the tin!
10th September 2015
Still the good quality as 25 years ago. But so not worth the price. $51 for 3 doubles? Oak, and spring water is it shouldn't cost that much. So long jack Daniels! Time to come off that high horse. There are better southern products out there..
5th September 2015
A mi este tipo de whiskys me gusta. Lo encuentro por lejos mejor que el Jim Beam y codo a codo con el Benchmarks. Jack Daniels no falla.
23rd August 2015
Banana. Only banana.
15th August 2015
Nose: Really sweet with hints of vanilla and toffee.Taste: Hard to describe. Overwhelming alcohol taste. Very bitter. After adding some water this "whisky" was completely destroyed.Use for mixing only!
27th July 2015
JD is a whisky that sets out to accomplish something differant and does it very well. It's not a true bourbon whisky either. It smells sweet and goes down smooth, it's meant to be drunk rather then sipped but is good straight up or mixed. It's not much of a whisky for sipping and sniffing, but it's damn enjoyable and you really notice how fast the bottle empties when you buy JD.Can't really think of a whisky that mixes better with coke, at any price, which is why I really have to give this whisky a ten. Now I'm by no means a JD loyalist, I'll usually buy cheaper mixers and more complex straight drinks, but I'd recommend any Whisky drinker try JD at least once.I've had Jim Beam at import prices and wondered what all the fuss was about until I saw the domestic prices. But Jack Daniels was a whisky that didn't disappoint.
26th July 2015
Overwhelmingly gluey nose. Less so to taste. Bitterness developing into sweetness. In other words it starts off bad but gets better.In my opinion its a better mixer than a cheap scotch blend.
3rd July 2015
There is Whiskey and there is Whisky, neither of them come from Tennessee.
24th June 2015
If you like Bourbon this is a nice snifter. You can really taste a standard white oak Kentucky Straight Bourbon .. then you get the sugar maple and its not a kentucky Straight Bourbon after all. Just different. Its pleasing. I enjoy it. Always have.
18th June 2015
Pretty much as above but I mean this has absolutely nothing on Buffalo Trace. Awful stuff in my opinion but it isn't as awful as it was a few years back. Not sure if that's a compliment ..
29th May 2015
Я фанат скотча, так уж сложилось. Решил попробовать этот виски после просмотра "Запах женщины" с Аль Пачино. Где он утверждал что это лучший виски.Короче говоря ...Сначала думал что купил паленое говно. Как оказалось нет. Это и есть его "вкус".
1st May 2015
this astounding liquor is a must for every bar-shelf
3rd March 2015
Old No. 7 is to whiskey what romantic comedies are to movies - to be enjoyed, but not admired. On that level, it works. Great with coke.
15th February 2015
Can't say much but of the maybe 7 whiskeys I've tried and about 20 spirits this is easily the best. But is a shot or mixer whisky not sone thing to drink slowly like scotch. I still don't understand the I've thing. Its only 40%, it's not Absinthe for gods sake.
23rd January 2015
While usually a fan of irish whiskeys, Jack Daniels, in all fairness, isn't bad. It's got a smokey, nutty, banana-y flavor to it. The bottle is obnoxiously loud though, if you're inclined to drink straight from it, as every sip is preceded by a chorus of "glug-glug-glug-glugs" before it even meets your lips.Decent whiskey, horrible bottle design.
7th January 2015
A controversial spirit if there ever was one. One only needs to look at the reviews here to get some sense of that. The first time I tasted Jack Daniel's Old No. 7, it was before I was really a whisky drinker (whisky of any sort). I didn't like it. Thought it tasted of caramelised peanuts. I bought a bottle recently because I felt that it was something that should be included in any well-stocked bar, whatever prejudice I might have. I tried it, and I was very pleasantly surprised. It's a fine spirit, with decent complexity, worth exploring, worth taking the time to nose. Surely, there are countless numbers of folk who'll just shot it or slug it, but don't let that fool you into thinking it's only good for tossing down in order to get drunk. It might be American and hugely popular, but it isn't brash or people-pleasing. Its mass appeal may be due to the brand and its associations, but a well-made spirit lies behind that. Take time to get to know Jack for yourself, you'll find him interesting company.
23rd December 2014
I would just like say that all whiskies are "sniffed" by there tasters and the master distiller to determine wether it is ready to be bottled and all whisky should be smelled as it is a integral part of your taste which counts for around 80 or 90% of your flavour like all whisky there should be beginning a middle and a finish the first part is called "nosing" this will tell hint to you what the finishing was like sherry and what type of wood and the toast of the barrel was ext ext. Like wine they are flavours and smells for you to discover and it's not just about the alcohol to get drunk so all this and much more makes drinking a whisky fun and a gives one a greater appreciation for the skill and time and effort put into this drink of the gods so now I hope you can start to understand whisky a little better and most of all do it with a friend or family member !
5th December 2014
I don't have a inferiority complex and why is it every time some one doesn't like a American whiskey they get stereotyped with a anti Americanism ?. I also will point out that I have family who are American and live in the states who are with the same view and OPINION about this piticular whiskey and just don't like whiskies that disguise them selfs and pretend be some thing they are not and I also like many other American Whiskies made in very similar ways. Might I suggest if you can't take criticism and read reviews with out being judgmental about the people who wright them to refrain friom reasing them !
4th December 2014
Is a little nasty served neat at room temperature but stick a couple of massive icecubes in your glass and give it 15 minutes, let it cool and water down and what you have is a very sweet, friendly sipping whiskey. When you are buying cheap and drinking it the same way, there is little between this and Jim Beam in truth (which is a bargain let's face it) but if you have a bottle of JD by your side, you can't go wrong - you can stick it in some coke and it's not wasted there either, tastes like caramel.
3rd December 2014
This is the first American Whiskey I've tried and indeed, my first time drinking Jack. I honestly don't think I'll be buying this again. It's not BAD but it has a strange taste and rough finish to it. Again– it's not bad, but I'd recommend getting a different whiskey for €30 :)
24th November 2014
Look at the post after: An iconic American made Whiskey. Best and most exspensive car wind screen washer fluid around ! This is the type of post that's infused with Anti Americanism. It's obvious this poster has an American inferiority complex!!
22nd November 2014
This use to be Franks drink. Frank Sinatra that is. He use to mix two parts Jack and one part water on 3 cubes of ice. Frank even called it: A true gentleman's drink. This is a great drink, and It's truly an iconic American made Whiskey as well: The best selling Whiskey in the World and synonymous with the American big mac. You get a taste of America in this drink. However, It's not the best tasting Whiskey you can buy. This is the kind of Whiskey that's good with a nice beer or cola. Hence, if you're looking to sniff the glass and play your smelling game, this isn't the type of Whiskey to do that. Jack is something you drink that's cheap, good, and gets the job done quick, like Wild turkey.
Jack Daniels is so missleading. You get that lovely toffey honey caramel smell and when you taste it it lets it's self down so hard with its bitter and dry taste. It has such a lovely aroma hinting on that it is going to be sweet and caramel in flavour but it's NOT its foul and it's best use is in a cars wind screen or wind shield fluid for all you Americans so when you are driving and you turn on the spray jets or nozzles to wash the wind screen you get that lovely Jack daniels aroma but with non of the foul taste but it's a exspensive wind screen washer fluid so if you made the same mistake as I did buying this then that is one use for it !
18th November 2014
Although im not one for mixing whiskies if I was too mix this would be a good choice, but neat the gentleman jack is much better but for that price you can get a good single malt, so depending on what U want this can be a decent choice.
16th November 2014
If you are a scotch fan, this is bad
15th November 2014
I was recently given a bottle of JD and thoroughly enjoyed it. To me it is a good solid American style whiskey, drunk on the rocks. Although by no means my favourite sipping whiskey the bottle did disappear very quickly.
9th October 2014
I was presented a bottle of this by my grandmother for my 26th birthday as she knew I appreciated whisky - bless her. I've chastised so many people for drinking this, I've been that guy at the bar sniggering at the JD drinker as I snaffle my Lagavulin. The other night I saw the cubic bottle in my cabinet after a long week and thought; "why not" as I grabbed a fist full of ice, full of fear. ...I was pleasantly surprised. I'm not ashamed to say I enjoyed it - it was tasty. Is this craft whisky? No, is it top shelf? No. For years I have judged people based on their choice of tipple but no more. Maybe I'm getting old or maybe I'm still a boy, who knows. But for the price it's decent - no whisk(e)y is worth only one star...
28th September 2014
In vodka theres smirnoff which is strong charcoal and raw alcohol bite, jack is the same but with sweet simple whiskey flavour. If you have the money gentleman's jack is better. But for that price theres many others that some might say is better. Some people don't like it because it's too simple, I like it for that. Not a drink you want to start with for getting a palate for whiskies. But its good. Will give you a whiskey face if you drink too much of it.
26th September 2014
I had to laugh as I read the reviews and comments on Jack Daniels whiskey. Seemed that the snobs/haters (yes, you proudly know who you are) tried SO hard to come up creative and witty ways to beat this whiskey down. I seriously doubt there's more than a couple refined palette's in the entire group and you can tell from the posts who they are-- the rest are just wanna-be's. If Jack Daniel's was such garbage, why is it one of the top selling whiskey's in the world? The answer is simply people like what they like and that's it. Trying to come off like an elitist douche whose opinion 'obviously' trumps the masses is laughable at best. I'm sure the REAL elitist's with their refined palette's don't bother with threads like this - why would they?And yes, I do like Jack Daniels... With Coke...
25th September 2014
The person who wrote the "It is what it is"-review completely gets what this whiskey is all about: relaxing after a crappy day (or, for that matter, celebrating a good one). Solid and dependable whiskey for uncomplicated but flavourful and relay enjoyable sipping.
24th September 2014
Excellent for every day drinking and for cooking as well. The smell and taste of smoke is little overwhelming in my opinion, but anyway, is one of my favourite.
22nd September 2014
You can't say much about JD. No.7 it is classic simple whiskey, distillery starter with price and quality, however it's got that specific smell and taste, goes well in every combo, neat or mixed like a cocktail
5th September 2014
People, you get what you pay for! I live in South America, and JD is about $27 bucks down here. It's just a little above of what even deserves to be called whiskey (which you can find for as low as $16 bucks).Don't expect greatness. However, I gave it 5 stars as for its price it's pretty good. I like the smell overall, nice, it's like wood and almonds. The taste is a bit on the strong side, but I do enjoy strong liquor.It's the great one among its price range, and I dare to say even better than some more pricey ones in the $35-$40 range.Not for celebrating a great achievement or an anniversary but good enough to sit back and relax at home or at a bar after a hard day.
1st September 2014
This is not a fancy bourbon or malt whisky. It's not like Ardbeg, Pappy or Macallan. This is a simply whiskey for when you just want a drink after a hard day, and that, is what makes this whiskey great.
17th August 2014
This is good whiskey that is way to expensive in the UK considering how low the cost is in the US.
16th August 2014
This is my whisky of choice when chilling at home. With coke in a JD and Coke this is absolutely delicious.
25th July 2014
Smells nice but has a flavour profile best described as 'road tar'. Why anyone buys this stuff at the price they do instead of a decent straight bourbon like Beam, Trace, Maker's, Blanton's etc is beyond me.
25th June 2014
Not anywhere close to my favorite whiskey but for the price it's good. Sweet nose and a simple sweet taste. I don't get the "glue nose" or the "disgusting taste" that some have seemed to experience. In the end just remember you get what you pay for. This is not nor is it meant to be a top self whiskey so don't expect it to taste like one.
19th June 2014
So its not Highland Park 18yr but it really is quite drinkable if simple and uncomplicated. Yes its produced on a larger scale than pretty much any other Whisky, but its popular for a reason, namely because its drinkable and uncomplicated. The snobs will tell you otherwise but overall this is a pretty decent product.
29th April 2014
Why does this whisky have such a strong taste of glue and raw alcohol? Probably the worst whisky I have ever tasted. Nasty stuff - keep well away or drink it with Coke or anything else that disguises the taste.
27th March 2014
Love it with coke, like it neat.Kinda like MCDonalds, you know what you are gonna get worldwide.
28th February 2014
I have been drinking single malt Scotch for a while and it seemed time to try Jack Daniels. Currently drinking it neat. Perhaps a little water or ice would open it up but so far I am quite unimpressed. This is not a complex whiskey. To me there is a medicinal alcohol flavor and not a lot of depth, especially in the finish. Drinkable, but off my list for the future. What is scary is that this is considered to be one of the better American whiskeys.
10th February 2014
Won't kill ya.
8th February 2014
not a bad whiskey drinkable none the less.My review short and sweet just like this whisky
25th January 2014
..but I'll never understand why my friends swear by it. I admit that it has a unique characteristic in its taste that I always try to cling to and explore... but it never seems to go anywhere. And other than that.. nothing else to see here.
13th January 2014
It taste cheap and no character at all. JD+coke = CHEAP! Why buy like this and drink it with coke?
4th January 2014
Я не знаю как люди могут писать "это мой лучший виски", "очень гладкий". Это очень плохой виски! Он не стоит и 10 части его цены. Я подписываюсь под всеми негативными отзывами, поскольку они отражают правду. Любой другой бурбон будет лучше этого!
10th December 2013
I have never been much for "Red Liquor", and despise bourbon cheap or spendy. If you have to mix it to get it down,let it be. I drink Gentleman jack exclusively as far as American sour mash is concerned, and a few "Whiskeys" from across the pond. I drink it neat so I can enjoy the taste. Why else drink the stuff? Jack Black is fine for clubs ans Jack and Coke searching for the "Buzz", but it tastes to my admittedly uneducated palate like battery acid and monkey urine. Spend a few dollars for Gentleman Jack and leave the dang Coke in the fridge.
14th November 2013
I've worked in an Ethanol plant for 8 years. Every once in a while you get a really strong wiff of the alcohol off the Mol Sieve room where the alcohol is refined. I must say that Jack Daniels smells exactly like fuel grade alcohol and the taste matches it's smell. I agree with the poster who said this is one for the nightclubs. It's got kind of a sour corn and vinegar like taste....combined with fuel grade alcohol. I didn't like it.
26th October 2013
As somewhat of a whiskey snob, I grudgingly admit that this is a quality Tennessee Whiskey. It's very smooth and drinkable if not complex and very good for the money.( keep in mind I'm in the US so its only about 22 bucks a bottle here). I'm never reaching for this over my beloved Blantons or Knob Creek( yes I know they are bourbons and therefore different) but despite the redneck mass produced image it's a good product.
25th October 2013
It's not a whisky for a special occasion; it's your ordinary "watching-TV whisky", but it's so very smooth that it always make me happy after a long day.
18th October 2013
Jack is technically not a Bourbon but a Tennessee whiskey. Please read some wikipedia's before claiming knowledge. Next to that I think that you can't compare a Tennessee whiskey with a Bourbon, two different production methods that end up in two different taste profiles. I'd rather have a George Dinkel over a Jack. This Tennessee Whiskey, in my opinion, is good for mixing, that's all
13th October 2013
I love it my fevrits brand JD i used to drink everyday.
7th August 2013
Young whisky drinker. Love some scotches, hate drinks with bad aftertaste (Bells). Mr JD is right up my street. I find it sweet and my nose loves the aromas. Quite happily get through 70cl neat. Nothing like that smell to wet the tongue. I imagine some drinkers would call my taste unrefined. ;).
2nd July 2013
Very distinct flavour, my favorite whiskey.
20th May 2013
I was surprised at just how different this was to the Speyside and Islay drams I'd been enjoying of late. I'm sure that if you acquire the taste for it, it's probably fine but on first tasting I found it overpowering and sickly. To me, it tasted like it was made to be a mixer with cola, as it already had some of the caramel qualities.
16th May 2013
Definitely not a whiskey to celebrate something special, nor is it a whiskey to sip when you're looking for a nice new drink. It's bland, and nothing exciting. But if you've never had it, give it a try. Jack is unfortunately such a well known brand, when I think it falls short of better wiskeys in that price range.

I give this tennesse whiskey a perfect score because it deserves one. It's not extremely complex, but its absolutely delicious and for the price I always have a bottle on standby. Its hard to accept that even though you see some shirtless dude in the back of a pickup drinking straight from the bottle this is a quality spirit. Things this popular dont get so for no reason. open your mind

It tastes good, for sure there are better and the name is very famous, but, its not bad at all. I fear the whiskey snob brigade are threatened by it's success, no??

There is nothing subtle about JD's. It's sweet and has a pungent glue nose, on the palate it's mostly the caramel and banana. I don't see the point of drowning it in even more sugar (i.e. JD + Coke), but at least the superglue smell is diluted that way. I don't want to know what this stuff would taste like without the charcoal filtering they're so proud of.There are American whiskeys cheaper and better than this.

Jack Daniel's does not contain any artificial colouring which may surprise people. All the colour comes from new oak casks which are very effective at giving a whisky colour, furthermore it is illegal to add colouring to American whiskeys.

let's just put this simple: if you respect yourself and want to get flavor, complexity and quality from your whiskey (or just one of the 3...) you just don't buy this stuff. JD is for the people who haven't got a clue what they are drinking.

No real character, no depth, just a medicinal, generic whisky taste and then a finish of banana skins. Very nice with coke, which explains its popularity, but this is a whisky for the night clubs, not for a whisky fan. Nothing against Bourbon, just JD. Also nothing against mass-market whiskies, I love Black Label as a everyday drinker. Hope this help someone to avoid buying just because of the big name.

Just as an interesting FYI, I dont think anyone outside US says 'Scotch' anymore. Here in England, we don't use the term in this context (despite what Wikipedia says).

How anybody can favour this over the sophistication of a Scotish single malt is beyond me! Complete and utter rubbish!

Jack Daniels is a Tennesee Whiskey but a mass produced one, Try George Dickel, much smoother and richer without the sickly sweetness. And to the whole "Real Whiskey" B.S. Remarks, get a grip you don't have to hate one too enjoy another, I love Irish Whiskeys, and Scotch Whiskys, not all but most. Just think of Bourbon & Tennesee Whiskeys as relatives to those previously mentioned spirits.

Jack Daniels is definately not a bourbon. It's a Tennessee Whiskey. Similar but different, due to the charcoal maple filtering process which bourbons do not have.NB. Real whiskeys are made in Ireland

Ah, Jack, What can I say? Well it's colour is lovely, it's nose is fine, but oh, lordy, the taste is quite sublime, over ice is best, nicely warming on the way down, but comfortingly so, all in all, a very accomplished whiskey

There is a lot of maize infusion, somewhat depriving the taste. Then maize changes into sweetness and vanilla aromas. The texture is however mellow, with good body.Try Gentleman's Jack which thanks to the double charcoal filtration is more fruity in the nose and doesn't have this maize smell.
