Member Ratings and Notes

N: Lightly woody, very light toffee, a fair amount of corn. Faintly piney. 


P: Watery. Light wood, light caramel, gentle corn sweetness, slight alcohol heat. Slight peper and faint cherry. 
F: A little bit of alcohol kick, some vanilla and a faintly earthy character with some wood. A touch of sugar and then it's gone. 
Turns out filtering something after you put it in the barrel gets rid of the stuff that makes it unique and distinctive. Utterly devoid of substance. A waste of money.  
n: more floral and honey nose. Black cherry juice - follows standard JD profile. 

t: softer and sweeter edge with less of the barrel oak char. Nothing improved beyond the standard Jack Daniels No7 other than a smoother profile, less alcohol burn/edge, and a bit more maple. It’s just the second filtering through maple charcoal that turns regular Jack into a Gentleman.   [C/C+]

It smells like what it is, a slightly more refined Jack Daniel’s. The caramel and the vanilla come barreling out of the bottle and the glass is full of sugary dessert qualities. There is a hint of char, oak, a wisp of citrus and that JD spice help liven things up, but don’t really get the party started.


Without that oily char character it’s tasting much more like a traditional bourbon with caramel and vanilla sitting up front. A very palpable nuttiness runs through it with hints of pepper, brown sugar, maple, cinnamon and a light fruitiness to it.


Caramel corn dominates with notes of a sour vanilla that reminds me of vanilla yogurt that fades to oak.
