JD price is pretty good - i take it you're referring to JB white label for paint stripping? it's expensive toilet cleaner in my opinion!

whats so bad about jim beam?

though for an extra quid i would certainly go JD

It's too sweet for me... plus it's not really a whisky

Not a Fan of JD prefer a real Bourbon but Jura is very good normaly £20+

Jura gets my vote! ...incredibly smooth! ..don't miss an oppo at this price!

JB doesn't really market itself as a whiskey, so a bit of an unfair comparison

It might have to do something with the fact that JB is a bourbon *dry cough*, and manufactured differently from the run-of-the-mill whiskey.

Good price for Jura!!!

Makes me laugh: eventhough advertised as one, JD is not a whiskey/whisky.

HOT!

Anyone who chooses the JD over the Jura deserves a slap though!

Jack Daniel's is a Tennessee whiskey that tastes very much like a bourbon although it is not one. HTH

Jura is a lovely single malt; a great whisky to taste if you want to get away from Highland or Speyside malts and more into Islay ones. Great price, too - usually about £25!

It is a (tenessee) whiskey. I think you meant it's not a single malt?

This should definitely be 2 separate deals

hot, great price

Decent price for J.D. Excellent price for Jura.

The deal is live 16th June according to the e-Newsletter found here:

Bourbon traditionally is from Kentucky, The whole thing is similar to Champagne. You can make a bourbon anywhere but the ONLY state allowed to feature on the label is Kentucky.

J.D. Is a Bourbon - the process is the same but it can't be called one because of the prominent Tennesse branding.

jura all day for me

A bourbon does not have to be made in Kentucky your mistaken.

The JD price is only a tad below average, but the Isle of Jura price is really good! I have a bottle in my cupboard.

I much prefer JB over JD, and am happy for you lot to leave it on the shelves for me...

I didn't say it had to be, in fact I did say you can make it anywhere and call it "Generic Bourbon" You can't however make "Tennessee Bourdon" or "Glasgow Bourbon" which is why J.D isn't called a Bourbon.

JD isn't called a Bourbon because it is charcoal-mellowed

All bourbon is charcoal filtered.

If you'd like to get particularly technical JD is often* Filtered BEFORE ageing while 99.99% of Kentucky bourbon is filtered after cask. It's near as makes no difference in fact subtleties in flavour like that are surely to be expected between brands.

(*I say often because some of the higher end J.D lines differ in this regard)

For a fairly big brand, Jura is actually decent. One for guests to drink, rather than my own private tipple ;).

Yep, I was also about to point out to all the 'experts' here that JD is NOT a Bourbon because it has a different process. Has nothing to do with where it's made.
There's a very fine line, but they are slightly different -
wiki.answers.com/Q/I…bon

Anyway, I do prefer a nice Bourbon myself rather than JD, a bottle of Four Roses small batch always goes down a treat (no mixers or ice please, that's blasphemy).

I've highlighted the only difference in process between the two. All bourbon is "charcoal mellowed" At least get your second-hand information from a reputable source like a whisky site or a foodie one. don't come at me with wiki.answers

I know for a fact the wiki is correct regarding the 1% difference in corn mash, Jack Daniels purposely did this so their Whiskey (Sour Mash Whiskey, as they like to call it) wouldn't be considered a 'Bourbon'. I confirmed this with a friend many years ago who used to work for them...

Like I said, it's a very fine line.

Again those would only change subtleties in flavour it's not enough to,make it a bourbon or not. Not every lager or wine tastes identical right?

(1)(i) ``Bourbon whisky'', ``rye whisky'', ``wheat whisky'', ``malt
whisky'', or ``rye malt whisky'' is whisky produced at not exceeding
160[deg] proof from a fermented mash of not less than 51 percent corn,
rye, wheat, malted barley, or malted rye grain, respectively, and stored
at not more than 125[deg] proof in charred containers; and also
includes mixtures of such whiskies of the same type.

All bourbon has to come into contact with charred wood, different woods will imbibe slightly different flavours. They'll still be bourbons. I think they use oak mostly.

When bargain threads descend into irrelevant petty debates #2854788298.

Bargain or not? That's all that matters.

Honestly, nobody cares whether you like the taste or how it's made!

What complete waste of time- debating whether or not JD is a whiskey or a Bourbon!!!

Bes

HOT! Anyone who chooses the JD over the Jura deserves a slap though!



I don't think you can say that it's all a matter of personal taste.
I pretty much love all the different types of whisk(e)y out there and keep a varied selection.

Also, as I understand it all Bourbons are whisk(e)ys but not all whisk(e)ys are bourbons.

'A JACK DAGANALS SAUWS'

Why do we get stitched up on everything in the UK....
ive just got back from the USA today and i got a 1.75 litre of Bacardi for £12 and 1.75 litres of JD for £20.....not fair is it?

shame the bottles weigh so much in the luggage X)

i grew out of JD about 10 years ago, these days, i prefer woodford reserve. both co-op and tesco have offers on whiskey at the moment as well, so its worth checking what is available where.

£15 for a bottle of jura is a bargain, and if i didnt already have a nearly full bottle, i would go get one. lovely stuff!

Hey Wanye - our pictures look quite similar. Let's enter a long and protracted debate about whether dogs or cats are better, backed up with 'facts' about each. ;-D

Seriously, though, what are the whisky/whiskey/bourbon/rye deals in Co-op and Tesco?

Good call - Woodford is truly divine, though if it's just for me to enjoy, Maker's Mark takes some beating!

Soo... anyone bought these?
