Tasted neat, this Tennessee whiskey is rather harsh and rough. It predominantly smells of airfix glue and solvents, but there is a fruity note lurking in the background. Jack Daniel's Old No. 7 is very young whiskey indeed. However, mixed with Coca Cola it harmonizes surprisingly well, as the late Lemmy Kilmister would have confirmed. Hence, from the perspective of a Scotch Single Malt drinker, I can recommend Jack Daniel's for mixing purposes. If you are used to drink your whiskey neat, you probably want to try 'the older brother' Gentleman Jack.

Color
Chestnutoloroso sherry
Nose

Maissüße (leicht in Richtung Ahornsirup), Karamell, angekohltes Holz, etwas Klebstoff... und da ist noch eine zuckersüße, künstliche Fruchtnote, schwer zu beschreiben, erinnert vielleicht am ehesten an diese Schaumzuckererdbeeren

Taste

Ahornsirup, angekohltes Holz, Süße und Bitterkeit halten sich die Waage, (Vanille finde ich eigentlich gar nicht), Zuckerrübensirup, hat auch was von Cola (falls das jetzt keine Einbildung ist), für 40% recht füllig

Finish

mittellang, bittersüß, dann trocken mit etwas Pfeffer

Comments

Eigentlich ganz brauchbar (wenn man Bourbon mag, versteht sich), der hat sich bei den meisten vermutlich nur deshalb als so schlecht ins Gedächtnis eingebrannt, weil man beim ersten Probieren keinen 40%-Schnaps gewohnt war und "Ex!" allgemein keine gute Idee ist.

In seiner Güteklasse ist er mit knapp 20€ aber einer der teureren, und für die Cola gibt's wesentlich preiswerteres.

Snap deze echt totaal niet.  Whiskey (gewoon eigelijk nen bourbon) die groot geworden is door film en reclame en tieners die groot willen doen.  Wel lekker met cola.  Maar alleen met cola.  In mijn ogen is JD alleen goed voor twee dingen:

  • voor te mengen met cola en te verkopen in cafe's en discotheken
  • t-shirts met print van JD te verkopen aan mid-lifers
Smaak is persoonlijk, altijd een indicatie maar zeker nooit de waarheid.

N- Incense wood and fabric cotton on a sphere of spicy heat. Sweet notes of maple, banana, cream soda and crushed leaf, pleasant.

P- Candy sweet, plum kernel, vanilla, classic root beer. Rough ride but not too bad, woody dry. Light body.

F- Short, puffy charred, light chinese oilment, plum liqueur. Spice coating.
