  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.

    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.

    78% corn, 12% rye, 10% barley. The distillate is filtered before and after aging, which gives it a subtle bouquet

  6. coldsun scored this whisky 36 points Expert Senior

    Good extension of classic Jack Daniel's Old No. 7. Smoother, sweeter, more elegant and tasty. The disadvantage is the very short finish. And even empty dram loses flavor quickly. But keeps classic style! The worthy drink!

      Shortly continues taste. Then just warming (but short as well).

    Oh my god, smells like a tube of UHU glue. If you like. Burnt caramel in the taste.
