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:

Colour:

Honey amber gold

Nose:

Maple syrup, strong acacia and manila honey, molasses, sweet but herbal and earthy, pure vanilla essence, slightly spicy nutmeg and cinnamon

Taste:

Maple syrup, vanilla essence and masses of sweet honey, a little sweetened cocoa and coffee with cream creep in

Finish:

Long, maple syrup lingers with a sherbet sweetness

Overall:

Very sweet maple syrup savouriness, easy drinking, possibly too sweet with all that honey, would be good with a drying mixer like soda perhaps?
