The nose is sweet with maple syrup and perfume notes. Compared to the sweet nose, the palate is surprisingly dry with oak, smoke and tobacco. The finish is peppery/spicy leading to medicinal notes. Yum!

 

This is really delicious stuff, a far cry from the syrupy sweet JD of today. If this is what Jack used to taste like, it makes me understand how it built such a loyal fan base. It's got bold flavors like spice and tobacco and some real complexity. I feel like I should go back in time Terminator-style and stop whoever was responsible for turning this stuff into the cloying, 80 proof crap it is today.
