jack single barrel

all I can say is wow! So smooth. Right now I'm I. Glass 2. And it deffinetly has a much more nutty/wood smell to it. I deffinetly like it muchore over regular jack.

Right now I am drinking it stright. No ice no water.

Also bought johnny walker green label. I'll try that one Tomarrow.

Willard: When I was home after my first tour, it was worse. I'd wake up and there'd be nothing. I hardly said a word to my wife, until I said "yes" to a divorce. When I was here, I wanted to be there; when I was there, all I could think of was getting back into the jungle.

For about the same price Glenfiddich is so much better than the Green Label. Haven't tried the single Jack though, then again I really hate jack anyways so I prolly won't even bother trying it.

I tend to like the Glenfiddich better myself, too. It has a really nice apple-y finish that I really dig. But the Green label is smoove too, and I don't think you can go wrong with either.

I used to be a huge JW fan and I still like it once in a while but once I got a taste of that complex, smooth Glenfiddich taste I was hooked. Damn stuff is too expensive for my poor ass though so I just drink less. Wink has the really good stuff on his shelves though. Some straight up elitist stuff, mmmm mmmm good.

Man, all this scotch talk is making me thirsty.

There's a really cool place down here that has Scotch flights with all the good stuff. I'm kinda tempted to call some friends and head down there....

Very few people know about Green label good stuff. I was just going to relax with a glass of the single barrel now.


I still like Templeton Rye better than both and very close to a single malt for enjoyment.

Fawk I've got the thirst now too but I'm so sick of driving that I think I'll settle for the leftover Bacardi spritzer BS from SmartDrugs party.

yeah....I'm entirely too lazy to go out.

Fortunately, I've got a good amount of Guinness and Modelo left over from the GP.

I did pick up another Macallan12 though last night and polished off the Crown Cask No. 16 w/ a friend.

Everyone Exaggerates

We're being taken for a ride... agaaaaaaain.....

Call me a snob, but the only thing regular JD is good for is mixing with Coke and pounding on those nights you want to get f'ed up as quickly and cheaply as possible.

Completely different animal. No bite at all and none of the JD gag reflex.

i'll agree with the fantasticness that is JDSB. absolutely love the stuff. never got to try green label, but i've tried a glass of blue and wasn't horribly impressed with it. +1 on glenfiddich, too. once i find some money i'm grabbing a bottle of macallan and laphroig.

By the way you guys talk and love Jack Daniels, you should take the tour of the distillery in Lynchburg, TN. Did the tour a few years back and you learn a lot and they offer to make ANY arrangements you need for shipment to your house. By the skid if need be. The funny part is the distillery is in a dry county. Go figure. They can sell on certain days--there is always the exception. Sorry, but you can't sample any at the distillery, just smell the charcoal vats and smell the oak barrels. Nice dreams.

Back in the day, Black label Jack was aged 7 years and Green label was aged 5 years in the charcoaled barrels.
When it became popular, the Black label was aged 5 years and the green label , 3. It sold like hot cakes and the aging references were removed from the bottles and the green label (Jack) has literally disappeared.
Gentleman Jack, which was introduced in the last 10 years or so, is said to be the old formula that required 7 year aging...I don't know much about the single barrel...BUT...If you like Tennesee Sour Mash...try George Dickel No. 8. It's smooth and flavorful without the bite or burn of Jack...goes down like a fine brandy and is much cheaper than Gentlemen Jack.

Surprises me a bit to see Scotch being discussed favorably in a thread about Tennesee sipping whiskey...Usually Sour Mash drinkers hate scotch and vice versa...Then again, if you're going to mix Jack with coke you're either a scotch drinker ...or 12 years old!
