Gentleman jack was the original smooth of smooth for me, it's what turned me on to sipping whiskey. Tasting notes- sweet with a hint of caramel on the front end, rich oak flavor with a bit of apricot as it slides down like Ice and the smallest sniff of spice on the back end. All in all it was my go to whiskey for years, and all though I have expanded my palette it is still a pleasure to keep a bottle in my collection and taste my roots.
Always good, nice to sip,
Very similar to the Old No. 7, but mutes everything about it. Definitely smoother, but personally not worth the extra money.
Good, easily accessible
Smooth and enjoyable. Very nice!
My Relaxing time whisky or with a nice dinner
Great taste and very smooth because of their double mellowing process.
My "Go to" drink.
Pleasant, vanilla and honey nose and similar initial taste. Switches to caramel midway, and then quickly into a spicy rye towards the back of the tongue and finish. Less harsh than #7 and can be sipped on its own. As has been mentioned in other reviews, water further mellows the pepper into an oak flavor. One of the few whiskeys I prefer on the rocks for said flavor.
Good, but not great. I usually use it as a mixer because its not quite to the quality of sipping.
Nothing like Jack original. Smooth and delicious.
Smooth and consistent all the way down
Harsh, not a great mixer either
Not a huge fun. Maybe better as a mix.?
Decent when chilled
Smooth and strong. Good flavor
On the nose I got a lot of ripe banana with some vanilla. Taste is initially sweet brown sugar and banana pudding (other reviewer’s observation-spot on), but gives way to rye spice. Adding water brought out a lot more oak and some slight bitterness.
One of my new favorites
Nice and smooth
So smooth and at a fairly decent price point. I have tried dozens of different bourbons and whiskeys over the last year and this is still one of my favorites!
Pretty good actually
Smooth. Surprisingly good.
Smooth and yummy. Easy going down. Not too complex, just a nice sipping whiskey.
Reife, saftige Früchte in der Nase, voller, saftiger Geschmack auf der Zunge; etwas bitter im Abgang
Smells and taste like banana pudding. Smooth and a slightly warm finish.
Is he really a gentleman?
sweet and really smooth.
Serious smooth whiskey which pairs well with said, water or just by itself.
Smooth. Let it mellow on the rocks for a few minutes and the character really came out
This is something more like what I would drink on the rocks. Not just good for shots or mixing.
A nice upgrade to the standard bottle of Jack!
Very smooth, great on the rocks.
A little too sweet for my liking. Strong notes of banana pudding.
Really just a small step above JDs Tennessee whiskey.
The only one of their products that I actually like. Maybe because it is more like a bourbon.
Strong lasting taste.
Tastes like it has been strained through banana peels; not a fan.
Vanilla and cake flavoring but not as smooth as I would desire. Probably a great mixer but not ideal alone.
More mellow than the old no.7 brand. Overall very enjoyable.
More sweet than anything else. Better for mixing than enjoying alone.
Exemplifies fine Tennessee whiskey. The sweetness is complemented by smoothness and a finish that I hesitate to call smoky, but certainly has a depth. Worth the bottle, but won't buy again; better options exist in the same price range.
Gf loves it. I enjoy it. Not the greatest. But great for the price.
Very smooth and easy to drink. My favourite bourbon by far
Smooth and very enjoyable. Hard to go back to standard JD. Although Winter Jack is as appealing to me as a casual drink.
Sweet, overwhelming bourbon whisky with overdose of caramel and slight hint of cherries
