@Lorenz -- No, Bourbon is absolutely not Tennessee Whiskey, but the matter of whether Tennessee Whiskey is Bourbon is at least debatable (though I am not going to get into that right now). Why I am writing now is to correct another wrong impression you have. The charcoal filtering is not done to the aged whiskey, but to the fresh liquid made from the mixing of water and grain BEFORE the liquid is put into barrels for aging. I recommend -- to you and anybody else -- watching a 20.5-minute video on YouTube about how Jack Daniel''s whiskey is made. Just Google "YouTube Jack Daniel Manufacturing Process Jimmy Bedford." Both informative and entertaining.
Bourbon is Tennessee Whiskey and Tennessee Whiskey is Bourbon. It is all the same. Anyway, I prefer Old No 7. I think the whole idea of filtering aged whiskey through charcoal is wrong. Why keep spirit for 4.5 years in a barrel just to remove all those beatiful flavours later on through filtering? If I fancied pure spirit I would buy Vodka. JD get your act together! If you want you can come up with great products such as Silver Select or Single Barrel, otherwise you churn crap from your refinery, sorry, distillery.
Gentleman Jack is rather sweet and less flavoursome than the other black label Jack. But I don''t understand why Gentleman Jack as a single barrell whiskey is bottled at 80 proof? What us going on in whiskey industry? More water less whiskey!
It's an improvement on No.7, however still a little harsh to be enjoyed on it's own. It would mix well, although I don't like to dilute. It's worth a try for sure if you like JD, but if you do i'd get a bottle of single barrel...that stuff's the **** :)
As a scotsman who likes bourbon(including tennessee whiskey,which aint proper bourbon) Have to admit i love this,worth it over old no.7 though? questionable Is it the water of life? Most certainley not.
As a reply to a previous comment. single barrel is pulled from only ONE barrel and not a mixture of several barrels. The difference is not just that it got a better place in the barrel house.
Best I have ever tasted
This is a superb Tennessee whisky and definitely feels a little smoother and a little less "rough" than No 7.The bottle is part of the experience - quite a mature, sensible size and shape and makes for slow, mellow drinking whereas ordinary Jack has the old rocker temptation to down in a shot glass. Gentleman just feels different.
Oli, bourbon can come from anywhere in the USA - there is no more specific geographical requirement than that.
