What they say:
Introduced as the brand’s first flavored variation. With hints of honey and a naturally smooth finish, its taste is one-of-a-kind and unmistakably Jack.
What I say:
An impulse buy – mostly for the rather fetching whisky tumbler with Bee logo on it. This was a 5cl Jack Daniels Tennessee Honey Whisky Liqueur. Here’s what we thought:
Honey amber gold
Maple syrup, strong acacia and manila honey, molasses, sweet but herbal and earthy, pure vanilla essence, slightly spicy nutmeg and cinnamon
Maple syrup, vanilla essence and masses of sweet honey, a little sweetened cocoa and coffee with cream creep in
Long, maple syrup lingers with a sherbet sweetness
Very sweet maple syrup savouriness, easy drinking, possibly too sweet with all that honey, would be good with a drying mixer like soda perhaps?
