My Opinions & Experiences
I'm not a whiskey expert but I do like the occasional glass, I have been a casual whiskey drinker for around ten years since I first had a Jack Daniel's and coke in a nightclub, from then on I was a big fan.
Christmas since then has always involved a bottle of Tennessee's finest and now as word of my love of the drink has spread around family I have received a bottle as a gift from some family members. This year I got four bottles, in addition to the one I had purchased earlier in December I think I have enough to see me through to next years festivities.
I'm not a big drinker and will have a glass or two maybe a couple of nights a week after work to unwind, maybe some on the weekend too if it takes my fancy.
I know the distillery filter the whiskey through sugar maple charcoal in large wooden vats prior to aging which is a process most bourbon's do not use, I find this adds to the smooth taste and helps it go down extremely easy even when neat.
I have grown to appreciate the taste neat without coke or ice but occasionally I will add one or both, when neat I enjoy smelling it before a sip, for some reason I find this adds to the overall experience. As said it goes down smoothly and I don't find it burning like some other whiskeys. It is worth checking out the Jack Daniel's website for recipes on a few different combinations, some are quite delicious.
It isn't the cheapest whiskey on the market but for me on the odd occasion I have to buy it it's around £18 at Tesco for 70cl which isn't awful.
It's a smooth whiskey which is perfect for first time whiskey drinkers or whiskey lovers, I enjoy the taste and would recommend it.
