What they say

Inspired by the original gentleman distiller and our founder, Gentleman Jack undergoes a second charcoal mellowing to achieve exceptional smoothness. Its balanced flavor is perfect for celebrating life’s extraordinary occasions, plus all the moments along the way.

Official tasting notes:

BALANCED OAK FLAVOR WITH NOTES OF CARAMEL & VANILLA

What I say

A revisit to Gentleman Jack, I remember being slightly more impressed with this expression than the classic Old No.7 the last time I tried it.

My tasting notes:

  • Appearance: Caramel gold (12/20), quick, large tears and thick legs.
  • Nose: Slightly acetone and estery, wood polish, caramel, vanilla, honey sweet, aniseed balls and oak wood.
  • Taste: Medium-bodied, silky, caramel, honey, vanilla, banana, star anise, liqourice and a touch of peppery oak wood.
  • Finish: Medium-long, polished wood, quite estery.

Overall

A rather polished expression and quite sweet and estery with plenty of banana, a nice touch of liqourice and aniseed adds some depth to the flavour

Score 81/100

Don’t take my word for it:
