Jack Daniel's

Jack Daniel's Tennessee Whiskey has been made at its Lynchburg distillery since 1875. The branding and original label, sometimes referred to as No. 7 or Black Label; has made its way into pop culture, with merchandise sold the world over and a history of association with music. Frank Sinatra was even buried with a bottle. The Tennessee whiskey makers use a mash bill made up of 80% corn, 12% rye, and 8% malt to create Jack Daniels whiskey, which is then filtered through 10 feet of sugar maple charcoal to produce a mellow, slightly smoky character. A method known as the Lincoln County Process, it means this is not a bourbon, but instead meets the legal definition of a Tennessee whiskey. Jasper Newton "Jack" Daniel ( c. January 1849 – October 9, 1911) was an American distiller and businessman, best known as the founder of the Jack Daniel's Tennessee whiskey distillery.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

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.

Reviews for Jack Daniel's Tennessee Whiskey
Sweet flavour
Jack Daniel's whiskey is straightforward and approachable, with a smooth, slightly sweet flavor profile. Its signature charcoal mellowing process gives it a unique taste that's easy to enjoy neat, on the rocks, or in cocktails.

Trash talking Jack Daniels
There are some."reviewers" on this page who, quite honestly are not on the same planet as everyone else. To describe J D as "trash" is low in.my opinion. Obviously its all about personal taste (I personally love it!) but some of these "experts" seem to think they can force their tripe on everyone!

Stick to malts, or a better bourbon.
It isn't awful, but in my non-snobby opinion, if you like malt whisky then stick to that. If you fancy a bourbon, as I often do, then there are simply better bourbons out there and for not much more money either.

I'll drink it, and I'm snobby.
I pity fools who downplay this popular drink. It's easy, tasty, affordable. Not harsh. Enjoy.

Poor excuse for bourbon
On nose like medical alcohol, taste like glue, no finnish. If you are forced to drink it, add a lot of ice and coke in glass.

Only ever drank this with cola when younger.
Have moved on to drinking whisky neat and enjoying the variety of aromas and flavours, so thought I'd try this again.
Pretty unpleasant stuff tbh. Maybe my palate has developed? All I can taste is a nasty, petrol-like flavour.
Not to be drunk neat I'd suggest.

Over-hated on
I buy and carry this proudly, along with much cheaper stuff as well... grin all you want! People who complain about Jack are either babies, or pretenders who want to roleplay as elites. But the truth of the matter is that Jack Daniel's is for the working class AND elites alike, it has a universal appeal transcending those lines. You CAN like expensive Irish and Scotch whiskies while also liking Jack Daniel's. It doesn't even have to be a "guilty" pleasure.

A pickup truck in a glass
I prefer most American whiskies to No. 7, but it does have a certain rough charm. There are screeds of reviews from....shall we say... "uncritical" drinkers and also from those who consider JD std to be beneath them.
I think the most important thing to remember is that this is the cheapest whisky they make. Don't like No. 7? Try something more expensive from JD.
As far as I'm concerned, this is the sort of thing you buy when options are limited, but if you let it breathe for several hours, it's interesting. It certainly is pungent. I believe the flavour profile is for a very specific market, i. e the blue-collar US market. It is designed to be mixed with ice and cola or to have 'bite' for those who think you should 'drink' a whisky in under two seconds and then say, "ooohh yeah."
But the initial distillation is perfectly good.
The mash bill is decent.
It has impressive viscosity.
The point is, it's young; very young. And "boosted" by heavily charred barrels in an attempt to push the flavour. If you take the time to deconstruct it, it is not a con, or badly made. It is very dry, a bit dirty, with an astringent but long aftertaste. Very little going on in the centre of the mouth. Its all cheeks and tongue. I'm certain that if they put this in virgin limousine oak for twelve years, it would be lovely.
As it is, it's the sort of dram you can enjoy despite or maybe because of its limitations, provided you are realistic.
