Long awaited in the UK and with a big following in the USA, this is Jack Daniel's honey and whiskey liqueur. A mix of regular Old No 7 and a spiced honey liqueur, it's got spice, sweetness, floral undertones and a long smooth finish. Drink over ice, chilled or even in a cup of coffee - it's rather tasty.
There's vanilla, cinnamon, and... oh, right, honey! The honey here is not shy, but not generic, either, there's a nice floral, herbal complexity to it. Drinks smooth and warm, not overly sweet for 35%, and the honey's here, as is some dialed-back cinnamon and a dash of cocoa in the finish. A late breath revives everything. The best of the American honey-whiskey drinks to date. 89 Points

Very different taste when compared to Jim Beam Honey (Which tastes simply like Jim Beam bourbon infused with actual honey in it). This feels more a liqueur (like Drambuie is to whisky). Lovely on the rocks. The sweetness and contrast to the ordinary JD may put some off, but I love it.

Some great reviews which says to me this is very much a marmite drink. Personally I hated it. Way to sweet and the honey flavour just didn't sit well with the spirit.

I was introduced to this drink last night by a friend, after an evening out. It was divine. Simply poured over some large chunks of ice, it was the perfect end to the evening. I'll be getting myself a bottle.

I usually don't like JD very much, I drink it with coke sometimes but that's up, but I'm a fan of honey and when I was told to try this I was speechless. I even drink this straight.

I'm Scottish and believe it or not I cant stand whiskey, but recently went on a trip to the US and was told there to try Jack Daniels, and I love it, then about 3 months ago my friend bought me JD Honey, and to me its the best spirit out there, and like other people I drink it neat, is it me or is there a slight smell of curry

Absolutely awesome....the best new bourbon of the century....I am blown away
- Geburael, 29th Mar '13
This is absolutely devine, mixes with anything but like most people have said, best served chilled and on its own - maybe with a few chunks of ice.

Lovely stuff.I preferred it to the Jim Beam equivalent as it has a sweeter honey after taste.The wife said it tasted like a crunchie bar in a glass!

Read about this online, showed it to a mate and said that looks good, went out for the works Xmas party on Friday and they had got it behind the bar. Tried a shot each all we could say was OMG!!! Never tasted anything so good or so smooth. Absolute heaven in a glass. Went out and bought a bottle yesterday 23rd Dec. Once I had found somewhere that had got it in stock.It does not disappoint. :-)

Tried a glass today, neat shot without ice and I have to say its the best pick me up for a cold I have tried for a while.
Going to get a bottle in just in case Man-Flu comes calling

Heaven in a glass... As ice melts, you lose the honey, so best drank neat

Found out about this at the JD distillery in Lynchburg on the tour. They said you should keep it in the fridge and always drink it cold. It is absolutley gorgeous.

- Rikki 6/11, 6th Nov '12
Wow I am not a whiskey drinker but this is gorgeous

Slips down very easy, straight from the fridge or on the rocks. No need for a mixer. Strong honey undertone just slightly outweighed by that classic Jack Daniel's taste. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
