Description:
The archetypal JD.

This rare, sippin' whiskey is made at the Jack Daniel Distillery in Lynchburg, Tennessee, using pure cave spring water and a unique mellowing process perfected by Jack Daniel in 1866.

The distinctively pleasing flavour is the reason they'll always stay faithful to the slow, time-honoured methods their founder insisted upon.

Tennessee whiskey is similar to bourbon but is different in that it is filtered through maple charcoal in large wooden vats prior to aging.

Tennessee whiskey is also not subject to the regulations relating to bourbons, such as the use of new barrels and low level of distilling proof.

Review: Easy sippin' whiskey that can be a bit overly sweet. Refreshing and enjoyable when mixed with cola or ginger ale, but I find Jim Beam White Label a better alternative all round.

Review: Not really getting why people are so uptight as to dispute whether its a bourbon or a whiskey, take it as it is... a bloody good tasting spirit .

Review: I love whiskey. I drink all types, Scotches in all their variants, American bourbons, Canadian Ryes, and of course my favourite Jack! Jack is very different than everything else out there. It is unique, its taste will never be like scotches, it isn't meant to taste like a bourbon or a rye whiskey. It has a beautiful kick and after-taste. I love drinking it neat. Some people find it disgusting, but my taste has grown so accustomed to it. Scotches are smooth but Jack tells me something is alive here.

Review: I honestly cannot believe some of this that's being written about 'Jack Daniels' being a whiskey and not a 'bourbon'. Apologies folks but a bourbon is in fact a type of Whiskey, originated in Kentucky, America, which I hope clears up the 'bourbons are American' issue. As for the proof being 45-40% again, I'm sorry but the 40% now shown on the bottle is actually the percentage of alcohol by volume, and the proof is the amount of alcohol (i.e. ethanol) actually in that. the proof is usually double the percentage on the bottle. Confusing I know, but look it up. As for the whole mix or not to mix topic, does your Jack Daniels come in styrofoam packaging with a set of instructions on what to do with it? Jack Daniels is drank, however the consumer wishes, and enjoyed no matter what.

Review: I am new to JD and so far really joying it. The question I do have is how to store it. I have been told to keep it in the freezer, so I have, but wonder if it will take away from the true taste?

Review: Although I would never drink them, I love Jack Daniels and Jim Beam to death. They taste so bad that they put people off bourbon and keep prices well down. This allows folks like myself to purchase Elijah 12 for little more than a bottle of Canadian Club, while accountants pay 100+ quid for 18 year old single malt super port-sherry finish scotch. Thanks again Jack and Jim.

Review: In response to the person who advised that JD can't be drank straight from the bottle, I'm a hillbilly farmboy from Ohio USA, and I happen to enjoy drinking a whole bottle of Jack straight sitting around a bonfire. It's one of the most relaxing experiences you can enjoy, to be surrounded by nature and enjoy the natural traditional flavor of the premier Tennessee whiskey on the market.

Review: I would like to just clear up the Fact that because Jack Daniels is an American WHISKEY doesnt mean its a bourbon, a bourbon is made in a new cask, Not and ols sherry cask or the like.

Also being a Scot, and a whisky drinker, i would also like to point out the diffrence between the 2. A Whisky you get the flavour of the cast, the water, the area i.e isla = a peaty whisky. where as a bourbon is sweet, almost sickly. not as pure in flavour.

thanks

Review: Ladies please.... J.D is fine for those who like it, however they like it. If you like mixing it then do so...if not..don't. If you prefer other whiskey's then go to their section and praise them, don't go to their rivals and criticise them... otherwise it sounds like you work for the rivals. However remember that jack is a cheap and cheerful drink that can be enjoyed however YOU want...mixed or not - I work in the best cocktail bar in Birmingham...I know what I'm talking about!

Review: Jack Daniel's is an excellent Tennessee whiskey that tastes very much like a bourbon although it is not one. It is excellent neat, on the rocks or in a "Jack and Coke." Personally I like it neat without any ice.
If you are looking for a bourbon I would recommend Maker's Mark.

Review: Jack Daniel's Old No7 is a great Tennessee whiskey. To clear up some other reviewers remarks regarding the lowering of the proof from 45 to 40%, This was done to lower the amount of tax having to be paid on 45% as regards to 40%. In the UK anyway it is 40%. If you prefer the higher proof then my advice is to buy a bottle of Single Barrel which is still 45%. And on another note, Jack Daniel's is a 'Sippin' whiskey meant to be drunk in moderation and enjoyed.

Review: I agree with Tim! BOYCOTT JACK DANIELS. Lowering the proof while talking about tradition and valued formula. Lies!

Review: Contrary to the last reviewer, Bourbon is probably the only whiskey you can have with coke and it tastes brilliant, most rock stars drink it with coke and Makers mark is supposedly the best though i think JD and Jim Beam are great as well. Drinking it straight looks great in films but try drinking a bottle or 2 straight...bet you can't...I can easily drink a bottle a night with coke!!

Review: This is a pleasant yet weak mash bourbon. Not a whiskey. It is popular and therefore expensive. If you dare mix this institution with anything other than ice you are a fool.

Review: Several reviewers mention mixing JD with coke. Some then have the brass to criticize the taste of the result. Anyone who would mix JD with coke would probably put ginger ale in Glenlivet. Their remarks may be ignored. Drink JD either straight up or on ice. BTW one reviewer recommended "Jim Bean." It's actually "Jim Beam." It is a fine Kentucky bourbon.

Review: "The distinctively pleasing flavour is the reason they'll always stay faithful to the slow, time-honoured methods their founder insisted upon."
Has anybody noticed how they write this on the bottles? Right next to the bit where it says "40%ABV", instead of "45%ABV"?
Hm. For some reason, their 'slow, time-honoured methods their founder insisted upon' are being totally ignored, by a large conglomerate that now owns the company and thought they would be able to water our drink down.
JD, although not my favourite whiskey by a very long way, is one of those staples of alcoholic drinks, and if they think theyre going to take 10-proof off my childhood memories, they're going to have to deal with one less customer. Boycott it. Drink Jim Bean instead (its actually slightly tastier, and cheaper, and you'll be able to get it anywhere just like Jack)

Review: Jack Daniels whiskey is a fine, sweet drink, made from the best. I have been drinking the drink for at least 15 years and find it one of the best whiskies mixed with a small splash of coke. If u go to university or college Jack Daniels is the drink for you. All i can say is order one from this website now. You must try Jack Daniels single barrel too, it is a shoulder above the rest, Master distilled and you mustn't add a mixer.
Ed - Happy days :-)

Review: I have been Drinking Jack Daniel's as my staple whiskey now for many years, and although it may not be the most sophisticated of drinks, it is a brand and a way of life now, which i'm very pleased to be part of...Thank's Jack!

Review: JD's Old No 7 is an institution, and I think most people know in advance if they are going to like it or not. Yes, it lacks the subtleties of the distilleries Silver Select and of the best of Single Malts, but at the price point you'd go a long way to better it.
Distinctive, smoke and toffee flavours dominate, but there is a pleasingly gentle after-taste to savour as well, and the history of the brand and distillery make it a genuine experience.

Review: Unfortunately, JD's Old Number Seven is sold everywhere. It is the least flavoursome 'whiskey' I have ever tasted, it has an unpleasant taste and a powerful alcohol 'burn'.
The taste can only be tollerated when mixing with Coca-Cola, but there are so many better spirits to mix with coke.
If you still wish to drink a cheap Amreican whiskey, but actually wish to enjoy the drink, go for a Wild Turkey instead.

Producer Information

Jack Daniel, one of 13 children, was born in 1850. He was raised by a family friend before being hired out to work with the Dan Call family at the age of seven. Call, a Lutheran minister, also owned a whiskey still on the Louse River.
Over the next several years, Jack learned everything he could about whiskey making from Call. Then, in September of 1863, under increasing pressure to devote his life to lifting spirits rather than selling them, Call sold his still to Jack, who was just 13 at the time.
Jack Daniel, like Dan Call, believed in mellowing fresh whiskey through hard maple charcoal. While this process was widely used, the time and expense involved made it less popular with penny-pinching whiskey makers. But Mr. Jack thought it was essential, so he perfected his charcoal mellowing process back in 1866. To this day, this still gives Jack Daniel's its smooth character and unique taste. In anticipation of government taxes, Mr. Jack registered his distillery in 1866. He was the first to do so. Making it the nation's oldest registered distillery.
Though only 5'2" tall, Mr. Jack's stature as a distiller kept growing. To mark his 21st birthday, Jack went on a shopping spree in the city. He returned wearing a formal knee-length frock coat and a broad-brimmed planter's hat, which would become his daily uniform for the rest of his life. Those acquainted with the man claim, "Once he got something the way he liked it, he never changed it." It was a personality that would characterize his whiskey.
In 1904 Mr. Jack entered his Old No. 7 Tennessee sipping whiskey at the World's Fair held in St. Louis, Missouri. Of the 20 whiskeys from around the world, his was the only one awarded the World's Fair Gold Medal and honored as the world's best whiskey.
Around 1905, Mr. Jack arrived at work early one morning and tried to open the safe in his office. He couldn't remember the combination and so he kicked it in anger. The blow broke his toe and an infection set in. He eventually died from blood poisoning in 1911.
Because Jack Daniel never married or had children, he deeded his distillery to his hard-working nephew, Lem Motlow, who oversaw the distillery through Prohibition.
How old is Mr. Jack?
A town fire that destroyed courthouse records and conflicting headstone dates on Mr. Jack's and his mother's graves have left Mr. Jack's exact date of birth in question. All that's certain is the month of September. But, for an American icon like Mr. Jack, one day isn't enough time to celebrate his life, anyway.
If you didn't already know, Jasper Newton "Jack" Daniel was a real person. And in case you're curious, here's his family tree. His father was Calaway Daniel. When you go to the Calaway Daniel family tree, look for Jasper Newton in the list of thirteen children. You can also trace Lynne Tolley's tie to Mr. Jack. Start with Calaway Daniel and then find his daughter Finetta Josephine Daniel (Lynne's great-grandmother). Finetta was the mother of Lem Motlow and Lillian Elizabeth Motlow (Lynne's grandmother). Lillian was the mother of James Conner Tolley (Lynne's father). And that's how Lynne Tolley came to have Jack Daniel in her blood. The rest of us will have to be content to have his spirit in our blood.
Though he is still with us in spirit, Jack Daniel died in 1911. He's buried in Lynchburg. It's the headstone with the two chairs. Mr. Jack never married, but the chairs were placed there for the many ladies who mourned his passing.
