  1. Xaver did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Again, this orange - gold

      Smells much more intense than the Old No. 7. Again, this special, artificial sweet aroma. In addition also directly the roasting aromas of verkokeltem wood. I mean here is the cooked, light fruit note more towards peach. Strangely, I have something like fried apple with cinnamon here. An immature, fresh citrus note is added. Dry hay and again the softwood. Again, vanilla. But to green, unripe grapes and again the metallic undertone. It's something of rusty, wet steel.
    • Taste
      Boiled fruit. Then the wood with some ashes. Mint follows. Again, I find this plastic note. That comes along with the artificial sweetness. I mean to find orange and nutmeg in the taste. Some leather and salty corn. Here again I am with hay and dry biscuits. This peppery pungency is already a bit stronger than the Old 7er.
    • Finish
      Medium. Very metallic and fresh. Nutty bitterness. Will also be drier. Towards the end honey forms in connection with hay.

    Jack Daniel’s Bottled in Bond Tennessee Whiskey, 100 Proof (of course).

    Dark amber.

    Aroma is huge on the apple and banana up front, leading to more of a butterscotch. The initial aroma is spiky and the fruit is delivered all in sharp ‘high notes’ if that makes sense ... but over time there’s more rounded banoffee pie, butterscotch, buttered pancake. Needed to settle down, and fortunately it did. Much later on there are faint notes of peanut brittle and milky coffee.

    Taste has equal parts banana split and apple pie, woody spice and ethanol. The lingering flavour has some banoffee subtlety but ethanol is really the key player.

    There is nothing wrong with this whiskey and I enjoyed a dram of it well enough but a bottle would feel like a bit of a chore knowing what I’d be missing out on every time I picked it up. It’s fine though. 3.325/79.5

    An interestingly balanced Jack Daniel's at 50% ABV, with a mellow mouthfeel, oak and caramel flavours coming through. Gentle spices wade through on the tongue, fading into tasty jelly jujube candies in the finish.

    The bottled-in-bond qualification of this whiskey certainly helps and it is very drinkable and enjoyable, but if you are after a punch in the face with a bourbon, this is not it.
    • Nose
      69 69
      Astringent, minerality and chemical, with very dry sherry appearing just before consumption.
    • Taste
      81 81
      Fruity and mellow, oak and caramel, with a hint of vanilla and orange peels.
    • Finish
      81 81
      Quite dry, with more fresh oak appearing alongside cinnamon, and surprisingly is quite long, which is a bonus. A light sweetness of lollies rides all the way to the end. Quite pleasant.
