What they say:

Just like Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey and Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel, Gentleman Jack is charcoal mellowed before going into the barrel. Gentleman Jack, however, receives an additional “blessing” when it is charcoal mellowed again after reaching maturity – making it the only whiskey in the world to be charcoal mellowed twice, giving it ultimate smoothness. Gentleman Jack is full-bodied with fruit and spices, and its finish is silky, warm, and pleasant. When you drink Gentleman Jack, do so with pride, for this is the whiskey a gentleman orders.

What I say:

Whiskey not whisky, today we are sampling Gentleman Jack, the twice charcoal mellowed expression from Jack Daniel’s Distillery in Tennessee. As part of our virtual world tour of whisk(e)y we sample some of Jack’s finest.

Jack Daniel's Sampler

Colour:

Amber gold

Nose:

Nail polish (old) acetone, wood furniture polish, gentle fruity oranges and apples, sweet honey

Taste:

Vanilla, coconut, orange oil, beeswax, honey, wood polish, incredibly smooth and almost watery feeling at first but given time this develops a depth and body

Finish:

Medium, sweet with oaky wood

Would I buy it again:

Yes, this is an excellent highly drinkable expression, much more refined and silky smooth than the Old No.7.
