  1. Gigiomix scored this whisky 90 points Member Junior

    The nose prevails coconut, smoked corn and honey, with an artificial resin note.
    On the palate honey and fruit cake, and above all coconut: sweet and dense, superb.
    Honey finish with artificial notes of resin and gasoline, long and pleasant, which slightly anesthetizes the throat.
    Nothing to say, great product just good and pleasant to drink. So far the best USA whiskey drunk. If I had to drink a spirit for breakfast to start the day in the best way, maybe this could be it! Exceptional drink for me.

    Ok nose leads to a thin rather dull taste with a quick finish. It’s ok, but not memorable.
    • Nose
      82 82
      Corn dustiness, oak, banana, spice/alcohol is present even at 40%
    • Taste
      80 80
      Mellow indeed, enters smooth, oak follows with a salted peanutiness, light spice and not as sweet as the nose portrays. Slight banana
    • Finish
      78 78
      Barrel spice lingers with a decent heat for the low abv, but the flavors drop off quickly.

    Not bad but for that money you can get a lot of better stuff. Some banana here, some maple there.

    Does the distillery of Jasper Newton ‘Jack’ Daniel still need an introduction? I think not. His Old No 7 is one of the bestselling bourbons in the world. But today we are trying the No 27 Gold, which was meant initially for the Duty Free Range, but is now easily obtainable outside the airports as well. It is double matured: first on American oak and then in casks made of the famous sugar maple, the tree that is also used for the Lincoln County Process. The number 27 does not mean all that much. The 7 refers to the old bestseller (that takes its number from the fact that Jack Daniel’s was the 7th distillery in the States to get a licence), while the 2 simply refers to the double maturation.

    Creamy and rich nose on raisins, plums, tobacco leaves, something rum-like and spices. Surprisingly soft, to be honest. After a few moments, some walnuts kick in.

    Nice mouthfeel: silky soft and mildly seasoned upon arrival. Next to the raisins, I now get a truckload of honey and a hint of chocolate. Maple syrup, dried figs, tobacco. It is completely toothless and I mean that in the nicest possible way. No bite whatsoever, not alcoholic and not too spicy. It makes this one dangerously quaffable.

    The finish is rather short, but soft and sweet.

    This is only my 5th Jack so far, but it is certainly my favorite, due to its soft character. Unfortunately too expensive for what you get.

  7. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Tasty, for only 40% of the tidy has something to offer (however, rather for the golden wallet).
    • Nose
      Caramel, honey, slightly bitter (walnut, maple syrup), I also imagine dry smoke
    • Taste
      velvety mouthfeel, very full-bodied and intense in the taste, dark chocolate, Storck giants, maple syrup, slightly spicy
    • Finish
      rather long, spicy oak
