    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.

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

  6. Magick scored this whisky 60 points Member Senior

    Quite nice. Benefits from ice.
    • Nose
      Orange, vanilla and maple syrup
    • Taste
      sour orange zest, maple syrup and spice, and lots of warmth
    • Finish
      More spicy orange, and a slightly metallic flavour at the finish, with an orange juice aftertaste

  7. SimondeVette scored this whisky 73 points Expert Junior

    A nice, smooth Tennessee whiskey that feels like liquid honey. Not very pronounced, but a lot more fun than regular Jack's
    • Nose
      Grass, caramel, corn
    • Taste
      Caramel, mint, vanilla, raisins
    • Finish
      Soft and medium long, mint, honey

  8. bninkie scored this whisky 78 points Member Junior

    Well, they say that Gentleman Jack was Sinatra's favourite whiskey. It won't be mine, but I am holding it in very hiugh esteem.

    Nose: bananas, toffee, oatmeal, orange, cinnamon
    Taste: similar, but also nutty
    Finish: fresh, soft, well-balanced, nutty, woody

  9. Sebastian113 scored this whisky 80 points Newbie

    Absolutely surprising how smooth and drinkable this is.
    Definitely nothing too fancy going on flavor wise. Not challenging what so ever.
    But it is pleseant to drink as hell.

  10. yfalkov scored this whisky 72 points Expert Junior

    Smoother than Original No.7, but still completely unimpressive
    • Nose
      Caramel, vanilla
    • Taste
      Vanilla, caramel
    • Finish
      Short, sweet
