  1. Slàinte Mhath scored this whisky 74 points Administrator

    Airfix glue, here I come! Back in the mists of time, the classic Old No. 7 was my first review. Does double filtration through charcoal make this Tennessee whiskey any better? Well, the nose is less rough and almost pleasant with notes of caramelized popcorn, syrup and nail polish. Is 'diabetic' a valid descriptor? Sugary, oily and slightly minty, the taste is rather one-dimensional with fresh oak spices, the expected spiritiness and a quickly fading finish. Granted, Gentleman Jack is a step up from the basic, mass-produced Jack Daniel's - but it's a small one.

  5. Kilo1 scored this whisky 76 points Expert Junior

    More interesting, more recent jack, very easy to drink, I would say flies.

  6. marmeladow scored this whisky 71 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      73 73
      Very mild nose with a hint of glue and some apple and "soft" american oak in the background. Apparently a lot of corn in the mash bill. Pretty one-dimensional
    • Taste
      71 71
      mild and mellow, creamy, without any corners or edges. Oak and spice only very hinted at
    • Finish
      68 68
      briefly with a mini-hint of spiciness and then the alcohol remains in addition to the sweetness. Extremely soft and at the end again a glue note.

  10. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    JD evening from memory:
    Jack Daniel's Gentleman Jack 40% 15864
    Jack Daniels Rye 45% 108542
    Jack Daniel's Single Barrel 45% 121470
    Jack Daniel's Single Barrel Barrel Strength 18-2757 5.8.18 64.5% 121450
    The gentleman was very watery, the Rye not roggig, the SB OK (but only a My better than the normal No7), the SBBS is then fun, bold, sweet, sardonic.
