I've tried a few kentucky bourbons in the past and this one for me falls just below average. I think it would be better suited in cocktails rather than drinking neat. Recommended.
Dave....I refer you to the following from Whisky.com: "Tennessee whiskey separated from Kentucky straight bourbon and the Bourbon Act for marketing reasons. However, the production process of these two whisky types is the same, except that Tennessee whiskey is charcoal-filtered before it is filled into barrels." JD is not distinguished from bourbon by "being sour mash", since sour mash is the "starter agent", again from Whisky.com; "Sour mash means that a part of the distillation residues (stillage) is added to the mash again." SO JD is distingushed from other similar spirits by the charcoal filtering, not sour mash, which is common to all.
Having a sip right now, not bad. Nice and smooth, enjoying the buttery vanilla carmel slide down the trap,. I'll take this over Jim Beam for the price but for a bit more you've got something like a Bulleit and folks, JD isn't bourbon, it's sour mash, something akin to putting rotten corn suyrup in a mediocre blend, don't even compare
Nice easy drinking everyday bourbon-whiskey...distilled in the USA but bottled in Europe,created for European market.Sweet corn with caramel & vanilla notes : nice smell and color. "Old Reserve" ?... not very old but you can drink it without mixer or ice...I'll buy again,definitely.
Nice alternative to the regular Jim Beam or Jack Daniels... smooth sipping with a nice taste on the palate... worth a try
Very smooth, too smooth for my taste in fact. Fairly new to bourbon and so far prefer Jim Beam over Jack Daniels. I've tried the Woodford Reserve and found it a little too strong but like the taste.
