Whisky Reviews for Jack Daniel's Old No. 7
90 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 65.72 points
- PJQ after seeing an incredible score of 100 points for this whiskey, I have to ask - do you work for Jack Daniel's?
- 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.

- typical bourbon mass product. nice and easy to drink, a lot of honey and sweetness but that's it. it lacks complexity and finish in comparison to scotch single malts but I think that is kind of an unfair comparison.
- Nice dram. Dont compare it to Scotch Single Malt because it isnt.
corn, flowery, sweet, sugary, honey.
Sweet and soft on the body, light. Good taste of honey, sugar, summer feeling. Corn in the background.
Medium long, sweet, sugary, round with touch of corn.
- I've been served this mixed, but it's the first time I have it straight and analyze it.
I would call this a "diet Southern Comfort"... OK with the BBQ or lazing next to the pool.
dominated by sweet notes; sugary maple syrup, vanilla oak and a slight hint of smoke.
swirling the glass gives off a nice waft of buttered pop corn
a bit thin, dominated by the sweetnes of syrup and vanilla, a touch of mild pepper
the maple turns to toffee and it goes a little bitter before returning to sweet
the sweetnes stay surprisingly long considering the thin start of the body
- I have to say, I am surprised. Not my "style" - way too sweet and too little complexity - but nevertheless it is surprisingly good to eat for such a mass-produced product. So, when I'm back at a party where there's only "Jack Cola" I'll ask for it without a coke.
Very sweet, accessible and easy presents the Old No. 7 in the glass. Vanilla, caramel, sweet corn, maple syrup and some coconut. When the nose is pushed deep into the glass, the alcohol bites with a very slight touch of glue. More comes even after a long time in the glass definitely not, no complexity.
Very sweet, almost like a liqueur! Very soft and a bit watery on the tongue. Jellybeans, vanilla cream with bananas and lots of sweet corn again. Add some ginger and nutmeg.
At first, the alcohol is a bit harsh in the finish. When that has settled, it will be sweet again. All kinds of sweets, caramel and tons of vanilla pods.
- Most people think of Jack Daniels as Bourbon, unless you're from Kentucky or Tennessee, then you know that it is actually Tennessee Whiskey because it has been charcoal filtered. A little harsh compared to Irish Whiskey or Scotch. Like Bourbon it has some sweetness compared to other whiskies. Good on its own, with ice, or mixed, also good in marinades.
- A good barbecue whiskey that does what it's suppose to. It's not a bad ingredient in the marinade either.
(Rating interval 73-77)
A vanilla bomb with sweet corn and more vanilla sugar.
Sweet vanilla, maple syrup and oak. A combination of black and pink pepper in the background.
Short, again sweet and a bit bright and rough.
- First time I tasted this I thought it was horrible, but after trying this again some years
later its not so bad.
