    How does this taste mixed with Coke?



    Seriously though, it's been a while since I've had this. How is it compared to the standard stuff neat (or perhaps to other bourbon etc. brands)?
    I've not had this, but a friend of mine said he stopped drinking regular JD after having this! I've nto had this one, but Gentleman jack is much niceer than regular JD, so I guess this is the next logical progression.

    You couldn't get it in normal supermarkets before, but I saw it in Sainsbury's the other day (full price), before that only saw it in duty free.
    A few of us did a blind taste off with this,the regular stuff and gentleman Jack. The single barrel won easily. The gentleman Jack was the loser by a mile. I was quite surprised.

    no way would i add coke to this. its too good for that imo. its a sipping whiskey and hands down a better drink that the original and the gentleman jack.
    this is my own oppinion of course
    It's quite nice, worth the £30. I like Gentlemen jack also but this is the nicer drink.
    Going to give this a belt

    I have had this with coke and even thought like others said it’s mwantbro be on its own it’s for me the best tasting whisky and coke I’ve had , it’s delicous indeed and once you have had this normal JD just won’t do. Anyway cheap cheap cheap as it’s usually £40-£42 just waiting for the JD rye to drop to a similar price
    Love it but none of the local tescos to me stock it!!
    Never had this but willing to give it a go. Standard JD is my favourite alcoholic drink.

    You'd be doing it a favour putting Coke in it... JB Black is a much better drink. Technically, JD isn't a Bourbon either, you'll get the purists back's up calling it that!

    Too right! Has to be aged a minimum of 3 years to be a bourbon and JD isn't
    Honey Jd is my fave..
    Super price but can't find a Tesco near me that stocks it
    Not in Tescos near me. So delivery costs and charged for under £40 so turns out to £36... soon adds up. Cold from me.

    I always thought it had to be made in Kentucky, but that's not actually true. Here's their explanation for whether it's a bourbon or not (it isn't) and why from their website:

    "Jack Daniel's is not a bourbon - it's a Tennessee Whiskey. Jack Daniel's is dripped slowly - drop-by-drop - through ten feet of firmly packed charcoal (made from hard sugar maple) before going into new charred oak barrels for maturing. This special process gives Jack Daniel's Tennessee Whiskey its rare smoothness. It's this extra step - charcoal mellowing – that makes Jack Daniel's a Tennessee Whiskey."

    JD purposely don't mention how long they are in 'new charred oak barrels for maturing' as it's less than 3 years. Probably a few months to speed up production.

    I'm pretty sure alot of people would have voted cold as well. Are you that person who thinks only your opinion matters? Guess so. States "£30" which technically its not, delivery cost on top and a 'penalty' of £4 for under £40 which makes it £36... doesn't state £36, states £30 so information in post isn't valid.

    im very sorry. my intention was to show people a deal which i thought was good.
    luckily i paid £30 for it as it was in my local store.
    i wont post anymore what i think are deals.
    bought one from the whisky exchange 4 years ago engraved for £44, has never been opened. How long till i can retire on it's resale value? Lol

    Havent drunk for 7 years but this is absolutely ace can highly recommend it
    You can get Rare Breed Wild Turkey at this price every so often on lighting deals , not to mention it's same price point as Knob Creek , Makers Mark and Woodford. Having tried and liked all of those can someone who has sampled this against them please give an opinion

    Shame and, I thought mine didn't (a Tesco Extra) then noticed it inside it's box and with a shelf edge label that didn't indicate it was on offer - hoping that explained why they still had one left

    Not seen it outside Extra stores before, but in a few I'm sure.

    Probably this has even more sugar than the honey variety. Sugar =good taste . What's it all about these days.

    Have any proof of that? Or is it another fairy story?
    I prefer Gentleman Jack but this is a great price.
    Good stuff. I like Gentlemen Jack when it's on offer but this stuff is Christmas present worthy in my opinion. Don't confuse this or Gentlemen Jack with normal JD that is diabolical stuff and should only ever be used as a mixer.
