Jack Daniel's Tennessee Whiskey

Sorry about this...

We can't actually ship Jack Daniel's Tennessee Whiskey to you in United States at the moment. We're working on a solution.

Jack Daniel's Bottling Note

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...

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.

Jack Daniel's Tennessee Whiskey Reviews

Jack and Coke? Sure. Neat? I wouldn't.

Just not very good neat. Banana on the nose, sweet but young and unrefined on the palate with a dark sweetness on the finish with a hint of smoke. I don't add cola to my whiskey but this feels like it was made to be mixed.

23rd October 2020

its above average

What I have learned, from multiple experiences, is that the Jack Daniels 100mL tiny bottle is light years fresher than the watery .75L bottle at my local store.

Great whiskey for the price

You can’t beat a jack+coke on a hot summer day. It’s been my go to whiskey for the last 5 years. I occasionally drink it neat or on the rocks. Sure, there’s better whiskey out there to sip on a cold night by the fire during the winter, but for the price it’s a great deal. I suggest drinking gentlemen jack if you want a drink neat or on the rocks though. It’s a little bit more smooth. Great whiskey though.

30th September 2020

Same great taste.

Still as good as the first time I tasted it 20 years ago. Mostly neat, sometimes on the rocks.

You either love it or you don't. Takes all kinds.

I am fortunate to have never had to taste windex, drain cleaner, paint stripper or nail polish remover. I pity the people who are able to compare the taste of this amazing product to any of those. They probably use those as a palate cleanser after having their favorite poison.

22nd August 2020

Great stuff!

A classic drink, some folks hate it, others love it. I am one of the latter.

7th July 2020

A classic

Can’t go wrong with a Jack + Coke. Wouldn’t drink neat, however.

22nd June 2020


not for me sorry way too seweet made me sick

8th June 2020

Pretty solid

As an Irish whiskey and occasional Scotch drinker, I love a bit of slightly sweet, lighter whiskey and more earthy, oaky whisky. Jack Daniel’s has both in its own, maple charcoal-filtered way. I have to agree with some of the previous posts in that it’s like bananas turned into whiskey, but it’s far from paint stripper in my humble opinion. That being said, it’s not perfect, not by a long shot, but everyone has a different preference. For me, JD is the gateway to the US whiskey market. It’s made me want to get into bourbons, even though JD isn’t one...

31st May 2020

Just nice.


24th May 2020


Mistake! wont but Again Much prefer canadian whiskey like crown royal.

17th May 2020

It’s decent

Tasty and effective but still not as smooth as higher quality brands

14th May 2020

At least my favourite

You know Jack, best whiskey around

5th May 2020



1st May 2020

Five star bananas

Charred bananas, cooked bananas, oaked bananas, banana'd bananas. BANANAS.

23rd April 2020

banana shake on the rock

in the nose it is banana , so try to keep it that way for this banana bourbon on the rock , wil taste like banana shake if you drink it slowly on the rocks

6th April 2020

chemical cough syrup

maple chemical cough syrup , hard hitting, i have purchased one just to know the taste and now regret on not spending it on other drinks, never will buy again . perhaps thats the reason they put so much on its marketing , ther is hint of oak though which i appreciate

5th April 2020

It’s Jack.

Immediate banana hints, soft caramel and nuts, sweet but harsh finish.

1st January 2020

Barrel Bomb

Not for everyone..smokey with a bit of sweet, hard hitting..

24th December 2019

Not for drinking.

JD is huge company with large marketing budget. This is probably why people buy it. It doesn't even stand as mixer as there are better out there. I got a bottle as a gift. Used it to soak my smoking wood pieces.

22nd December 2019

Brand value only

Utter sh** if you must put it with a mixer but don't savour the flavour, someone mentioned paint stripper and I agree.

27th November 2019

Not for me.

I have always been a scotch whisky drinker. And I love both the Smokey islays and the gentler cherried offerings from balvenie, glendronach etc. I have recently discovered bourbon and love the stuff.....mostly. bulleit, whistlepig, makers have all been a revelation. Jack Daniels is not. It's harsh horrible and best drunk with coke. Sorry.

17th November 2019

Not to my liking.

This is a very popular whisky and many people like it. Personally, I do not. I tried a shot of Jack Daniel's neat and found it tasted of paint thinner and salt water taffy.

11th November 2019


Mixed with coke and still taste like I was drinking windex. Horrible chemical aftertaste. Won't buy again.

21st September 2019

1-star...are you friggin kidding me?!

It’s JD...a little bit of America in a bottle! Yes there are more complex, smoother and much better but when in the USA you’ve got to have a shot of Mr. Jack Daniels.

8th September 2019

Smooth, smoky with a hard hit. Be careful around this one hehe

Jack Daniels was a bit rough the first time I tasted it. I didn't like it very much the first time. But after giving it a second taste I completely fell in love with it! It's one of my favorite liquors and I highly recommend it straight with some whisky rocks.

23rd August 2019


Confession times. I dont thin I will ever again buy JD. I agree with the previous poster. Life is to short, and we have way more money to spend. However If we put all this philosofical debate aside, it is still 5/5 for what it offers, and for the price point that it offers it. I think it has the best quality/price ratio, its a sipper in a way, ok I sip it directly from vottle to my throat, and I guess costumers recognize that. Look. Customer is not stupid. He see Chivas 18, abunadh, hennessy xo, and jack...And he says. Fuck it. And takes the jack. I had JD for reference point for a long time (with chivas 12 naturally), but I have nove moved to JDSB for reference point against malts and cognacs. Good stuff that SB. Anyways, I am getting to long.

21st August 2019

Too sweet for my taste.

My brother introduced me to this "bourbon" and it almost made me never want to try any other bourbon again. It tasted very sweet like it was blended with caramel but still smoother than most scotch whiskies. Then i read the label and saw it was a Tennessee whiskey! So i went and bought myself some Evan Williams extra aged bourbon and it was 100 times better and not so sugary sweet like jack. Don't get me wrong, its a decent mixer with coke or even pepsi but neat this whiskey is just not for me.

21st August 2019


I'm 60 - never tried Jack Daniel's. I should have waited another 60 years. Just awful. It was only about $20.... I tried it twice... poured the rest down the sink. Life is too short.....

10th August 2019

Absolutely awesome

Love it

6th August 2019

Terrible chemical taste and smell.

It tastes awfully chemical and sweet, just horrible. A smell and taste of nail polish remover, I'm sorry to say. No intention to insult anyone, but that's honestly how it develops on my palate. Passable to mix with cola.

16th July 2019

No Snob Like a Bourbon Snob

Breaking news: Jack is not as good as a good single malt. You can name whiskeys (or Bourbons, whatever) that are better. You can also make jokes about stripping paint. Haha.

Meanwhile, there's Jack. Lots of people like it. Personally, I think it tastes funny - there's something in there I can't quite place. Mixed with soda or Coke it's drinkable.

$20 is good, but you can get Old Forester or sometimes Maker's for that, which I prefer.

Hate is such a strong word.

16th May 2019

Absolutey disgusting.

I would accept it if you just want to get hammered and this is the only thing you’ve got. But if we are to rate this as a drink, taking the scent and taste into account - to say that this is “acceptable” or even “great”, is an insult to things acceptable and great.

Read a comment here that said that you’re a snob if you “hate on it”. Listen... if I served you water that tasted and smelled like piss, and you criticized it, would that also make you a snob? No. It means you have a standard.

If you want great liquor, try
Longmorn (16 years)
Jameson Black Barrel (great and affordable!)
for the cowboys out there, try Bhunnahabhain
Glenn Fiddich (15 year old)
Chivas Regal Gold (18 year old)

For Christ’s sake people!
At least TRY any of the above. Who knows, maybe you’ll appreciate a break from Jack’s sewer juice.

24th March 2019

Good bang for the buck

Dont make assumptions. Do a blind comparison. This is a good whiskey. Ignore the haters.

18th January 2019

Make up your own mind on it

Probably the most divisive whiskey in the world. You’ll either fall in love with it’s distinctly apple-y and oaky taste or you’ll barely even consider it a whiskey. Its still a trendy and pretty “sexy” drink with amazing marketing blurb which gives it an enduring appeal with youngsters, but I personally feel I’ve outgrown its gimmick.

13th January 2019

Great for me

One of my favorites for 20+ years. Tastes great on the rocks. After getting into the single malts journey I recently thought of trying JD plain in order to compare. Not disappointed. Very decent taste and much better than quite many blended scotch. Smoky, good body, medium aftertaste, great value for money.

22nd December 2018

Great stuff

Just used several bottles to strip all of the gloss paint from my doorframes in the new renovation. Excellent stuff and cheaper than ronseal too!

14th December 2018

Very basic

Very disappointing. Maybe I'm just getting old, but I'm sure it used to taste better than this.

13th December 2018

My review. (Whisky snobs just scroll down)

Hello all you fine spirits. Now this review isn't going to follow one point or be all that structured. I am NOT an expert on whiskey and can't pick out every single flavour. If that isn't good enough for you whisky snobs out there, move along. I just know what i like and where cheap and expensive spirits differ. With that said, let's continue. And remember, taste is subjective to everybody.

Jack Daniels was my starter whiskey and it's a taste that will be hard to forget. At the time i was thinking " My lord, this is very harsh on the tongue but has a fairly pleasant taste" And it did, a mix between natural and chemical flavours. The one flavour that is prevalent for me was the oak. Oak, oak and oak with a hint of caramel and a touch of vanilla and as pleasant as all them flavours sound together, the execution is poor. Very poor. It's a good whiskey to get drunk on but not one you would drink out of a glencairn glass. It is a decent starter whiskey to get you used to the burn associated with whiskies and the feel of a general spirit. HOWEVER, this does not, could not and would not compare to a finely made single malt scotch. My favourite being Dalmore King Alexander III. Yet that's expected for the price point. It's a good thing they can remain consistent with their flavour that is affiliated with old no.7 when they are mass producing it. If you're not an oil baron, Duke or wealthy businessman and can't afford £100+ whiskies to drink regularly then this is a fine whiskey to sip. I still drink it, though i always keep some special bottles in my liquor cabinet for them special occasions.

The nose on this is very harsh and unforgiving. A new person to whiskey will have their nostrils burnt. Again, the aroma for me is charred oak and a very slight hint of sweetness from the caramel. The alcohol is ubiquitous in this drink. It's the dominant smell and that's off putting for some.

Overall I'm going to give this a 3, for nostialgia not taste.

If i were to rate in on palate and the aroma alone then a 2. Maybe 2.5 max because it's not the worst whiskey, but it's far from the best.

Thanks to all who read. This is one man's opinion. A man who enjoys his spirits. Have a nice day or night.

13th November 2018

Tastes even better today

Tastes better today than it did in 1981.

10th November 2018

Haters gonna hate

Predictable number of haters on here - seems like anything popular gets the 1-star treatment these days. Ridiculous reviews, coloured by an irrational hatred for a brand. Firstly, it's NOT a bourbon. Not because it wouldn't qualify as a bourbon - they've never even attempted to be classified as a bourbon, so LITERALLY no-one knows whether or not they'd be successful. Loads of people class the charcoal filtering process as a "flavouring process" but, again, this has never been challenged in court, so arguing over it is a bit pointless. Made pretty much in exactly the same way as your favourite bourbon. It's alright. Good enough to be sipped neat, works well with a mixer, stands up in cocktails. What more do you want from a spirit at this price?? Forget the ridiculous 1 star reviews.

4th November 2018


Smells like nail polish remover and tastes worse. Cheap scotch is way better.

26th October 2018

At best you buy this to mix it with Cola and lots of ice, for when you intend to go on a bender. Otherwise, avoid this bourbon.

The only use I see for this bourbon is mixing it with Cola for the sole purpose to get drunk. This is not something you want to drink straight. Even on the rocks it isn't pretty. It has a very strong, nasty, grainy palate. Swallowing it makes my throat sticky and it has a very sour after-taste, almost as if I just swallowed glue rather than bourbon. I have no idea how this website describes this bourbon as sweet. There's nothing sweet about this.

22nd October 2018


Harsh. The nose isn’t pretty but still way better than the chemical taste of it. I don’t know about prices in the US but I don’t see why anyone would buy this for a second time. Get yourself a bottle of Monkey Shoulder, Black Label or even Jamesons at roughly the same price and thank me later.

26th August 2018

Foul. Use to clean drains.

Foul. Drain cleaner.

14th August 2018

I've tried most

Consistant and comparatively a good deal

5th August 2018

We Are The Music Makers.

Tastes like bananas, the essence of boil in the bag Shepherds Pie, oh it tickles the palette like a wedge of Rochefort cheese.......... what kind of rubbish is that? To quote Mr Salt (played by the legendary Roy Kinnear) in Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory, Jack Daniels gets me drunk and may or may not, make me attractive to women.

29th June 2018

Never again. Too much burn.

Drank it when I was young. As my tastebuds developed, I found a fairly larger and much better whiskers. I have a passion for Rye whiskey. Not expensive, Old Overholt Rye is great!

24th June 2018

Horrible at best.

Reading several other reviewers from all over the internet (including government ones), the taste of this drink can vary greatly which shows some serious handling & production concerns. The bottle of it that I got tastes like burned charcoal and water diluted cognac. Avoid.

26th April 2018

If your a beginner don't use this as your base opinion on whisky

Taste is different for me sometimes. I read one review about nail polish and got that and it was strange. But also sometimes I get a lot of bananas which I like but not really what im looking for. Other times I taste caramel and charcoal. Its a love or hate it whisky and it changes for me. The middle is the best part, start and finish is boring. Isn't complex. Its unique in a way that its not like most bourbons or ryes but in this case its not a + thing. I like it most times but theres a lot more others that I would choose over this when im at the store buying a cheap bottle

3rd April 2018

Tastes like cough syrup

28th January 2018

Very good

Classic drink! I like it

5th January 2018

Good !

To me , and maybe only me , it has a peanut butter taste to it , but only after drinking some Makers or Four Roses . JD is not bad at all , but for a few dollars more you can get a lot better . Jim Beam tastes like glue , why do people like it ?

19th December 2017


Literally the worst whiskey ever. Can't even drink it with coke.

10th December 2017

Great straight

Needs 4 stars

30th November 2017


I can not understand how anyone can mix this glorius stuff. Better than SB.

26th November 2017

Brings back memories?

There's a sort of mellow thinness and smokiness and a really nice hint of banana you don't really get anywhere else. It's an everyday drinking whiskey rather than a winter heavy hitter, but still worth a punt once in a while to get reacquainted with one of the really big names in American whisky, and one of the most distinctively 'different' producers in terms of what they're going for.

Not my favourite by a long way, and not really worth more than £17-18 a bottle tops, but it's definitely not a bad drop. Best had neat, as ice turns it into water in a matter of minutes. Makes an interesting, non-traditional old fashioned, I rather like it.

14th November 2017

Mix with coke

On it's own, terrible, but mix with coke and you got something, a good option to get drunk off, but not much else.

13th November 2017


There's no way I can drink this thing. I tried it on the rocks, on its own, mixed. The results is always the same. I find it horrible, dry, not pleasant at all, I can't find the fruity notes everybody talks about.
I think its overrated.
You want a truly good Bourbon? Try Makers Mark or Woodford reserve, just to name a couple.

22nd October 2017

For its price and taste, my first choice!

You surely will find full bodied, richer whiskeys, but none's got JD Old n7 flavour. Harsh enough to warm your chest with no esitation, it's actually very smooth and sweet, all about oak, caramel and banana, that will keep you company better than anything else.
Every time I taste a more refined complex whiskey and I go back to my 'cheap' bottle of JD, it never disappoint me, like instead many other 20-30$ whiskeys did.

6th October 2017

It'll do

Sort of a woody chemically toffee nose, and a banana and molasses taste. It's not complex, it's not going to blow your mind but it's cheap and it's somewhat pleasant to drink. Prefer a single malt but sometimes you have to make do!

1st September 2017

It is a bourbon

Good whiskey only snobs turn their nose up at.

And it is a bourbon, it meets every legal requirement but the company brands it differently. Probably a good thing to distance itself from jim beam. Which does taste like turps.

18th August 2017



6th August 2017

Very nice whiskey

19th June 2017


I have been drinking JD since I was a sophomore in college. 58 years ago. A very fine drink then and a nice one now. While I still buy and drink it now, it has changed a bit. The Jack Daniels Distillery was bought by a Big Distiller and some things changed. The proof for one and the old complex taste for another. The old JD was passed thru the charcoal bed twice and the now JD passed only once. The Green Label was passed thru just once and I believe used the "old" charcoal.
I still drink it almost exclusively. Maybe because of habit or my taste buds are failing me. I enjoy it----I drink it on the rocks in a Silver Jefferson Cup and probably will continue. I don't know any--any better.
When I feel depressed about my grades back then. I might switch to a single malt for an evening. But not very often.

20th May 2017


Superb whiskey

2nd April 2017

I love this

Its good whisky

23rd March 2017

Alberto Viloria

Mucho Dulce y Acaramelado, Algo de Humo y Madera Tostada, Muy Excelente para los Mix.

13th March 2017

What they do, they do very well.

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.

13th March 2017



1st March 2017

I like it


28th January 2017


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.

15th January 2017


Good Whisky

14th January 2017

I tried it once. After that I didn't got a chance to taste it. Now I'm in a search of it.

29th December 2016


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

I have news for you

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

25th November 2016

Whiskey so good

People withbtaste

24th November 2016

Winner for me

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.

19th November 2016

nice one

very tasty

16th November 2016

Very nice whiskey

27th October 2016

jack daniels

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

Fr Andrew Rowlands-Smith

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

Filtering the esters out.... Seriously!

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!

Nothing remarkable!

Maybe for first- timers or college young ones. Bland and not very natural tasting! 3 out of 10!

A truly excellent battery acid.

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

Once You Go Jack, You Never Go Back

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

smells synthetic

Feels like polimers are melting in mouth

25th April 2016

Great and unique

Big number 1 for a reason. Smooth and easy drinking, unique banana taffy flavor along with vanilla Carmel and char. Goes down like candy.

25th April 2016


For people who have no idea about whiskey.

22nd April 2016

JD is #1 in worldwide sales for a reason

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

The original classic

Awesome American whisky is all that describes it.

20th March 2016

Smell lovely.

Not bad at all, too thin body but better then most blended and Highland Speyside.

17th March 2016

No thanks

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

Gag worthy

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

Unbearable nose

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

Best malt ever

Nice whiskey. I need in India

30th January 2016

Nice nose but…

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

Frst buorbon

Nope, not my taste.

6th January 2016

Great for starters.

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!

The one and only

There is simply no other wiskey. It's JD or nothing

2nd January 2016


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

It's not Bourbon

Old #7 is a Tennessee sour mash. Please don't confuse it with bourbon!

29th December 2015

Cinnamon flavor please bring it duty free shops and India

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.

Jack Daniels Old No7

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

Stop bashing the top dog

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

All hype

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

A fine whiskey for mixing........

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

Southern been suckerpunched by jack

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

Es un Jack Daniels vas a lo seguro.

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

Amazing choice for beginner Whisky drinkers and those just wanting a sweet drink

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

Overrated and over priced

There is Whiskey and there is Whisky, neither of them come from Tennessee.

24th June 2015

Still a great tipple.

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

Better than it used to be but still rubbish compared to cheaper competitors

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

Good at what it does.

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

Why add water?

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

Not bad

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

Grant Melville, Falkirk

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.

@ An Iconic American made Whiskey!!

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 !

@ An Inferiority complex with Americans shouldn't downgrade a drinkable Whiskey.

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

Good fun, easy drinking

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

You could do better...

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

An Inferiority complex with Americans shouldn't downgrade a drinkable Whiskey.

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

An Iconic American made Whiskey!!

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.

22nd November 2014

Best and most exspensive car wind screen washer fluid around !

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

good mixer

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

Maybe I'm just getting old....

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

Good taste but strong alcohol bite

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

Oh Lord, the pretentiousness on this thread...

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

Nice but not a top shelf Whiskey of course

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

It is what it is.

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

simple but good

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

Don't listen to the Snobs

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

Nasty Stuff

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

Unimpressive so far

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

Decent enough

..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?

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

Maybe good for your car

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

Whiskey snobs aside, this is a quality product

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

Smooth as silk

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

reaction to Mr Jack Is my Fav

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

1 Bottle 1 Night

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

How bad?

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

Cheap Whiskey

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.

13th May 2013

Hate for the sake of hate....

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

23rd April 2013


But we love it!

20th April 2013

It's not nearly as bad as people say

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??

2nd February 2013

Caramel, banana, and glue. Lots of it.

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.

30th November 2012

Surprisingly does not contain colouring.

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.

25th October 2012

full of artificial colorant and simply bad

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.

20th October 2012

Not Very Nice I'm Afraid

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.

21st December 2011

Scotch... Scottish....

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).

19th December 2011

Jack crap!

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

Reply to Reply to 'Mr Jack IS my Fav'

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.

23rd October 2010

Reply to 'Mr Jack IS my Fav'

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

1st July 2010

Mr Jack Is my Fav

The bourbon Drink is amazing, Drink it with Coke :) But its not a whisky, Its a bourbon, Real whiskeys are made in scotland, My country :)

1st May 2010

It's very good.

This is a great drop. Must NOT be mixed and to be enjoyed straight.

21st April 2010

Jack, My Hero!

This is personally the best whiskey I've ever tasted. The beautiful colour and the taste just overwhelms me its that good, I must say its quite a treat over ice.
Cheers Jack

17th February 2010

Oh, my Jack ;-)

For me ist Jack Daniels the best Whisky. Point ! lg, Daniel ;-)

16th January 2010

A very good Whiskey

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

26th December 2009

Maize in the nose

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.
