Jack Daniel's Master Distiller Series No.2 Reviews

Better Than I'd Expected . . .

Not a huge fan of Old no.7; like the review below it has always seemed a bit watery, too much of the 'glue' note and a touch expensive for what it is. So a late xmas present later and I find myself with a bottle of this and the last dregs of an Old no. 7 that has been on my shelf for a good while . . . time for a taste off ;)

Instantly agree with the review below again; this is much more wood spice dominant and has a more pleasing mouth feel - it has a pretty decent balance with the sweet and savoury/spice. A touch of water and a bit of time brings out more of the caramel notes. The old no7 is better than I'd remembered but has probably mellowed a lot in the bottle - would be interesting to compare with a fresher sample - still a bit watery and dominated by sweet notes but I do get more of the char and maple notes with this one.

Decent whisky that I'll be happy to sip on. Definitely a step up from the no7

Very Impressed

I'm not a fan of the standard Jack Daniel's offering -- the "Old No. 7." It's just too watery on the palate. Old No.7 is of course bottled at only 40% ABV, and though the bottles in the "Master Distiller' Series" are 43% ABV, I have avoided trying any of them for some time, fearing that they may not be different enough from Old No. 7 to justify spending money on any of them. After seeing a comment from someone that the Master Distiller' Series bottlings do indeed differ in taste from Old No. 7, and each other, I decided to buy one of them, and No. 2 in the series was available in a shop near my home. I am so glad I made this purchase. Very different than Old No. 7. Sure, it's still sweet, but it isn't at all watery, and the sweetness is balanced out by wood spice that is truly the dominant note in this whisky. I understand that some whisky drinkers are really put off by the cask-driven nature of a lot of American whisky, and those are not people I'd recommend this whisky to. Anybody else, especially those who like whisky heavy on wood character, buy this.
