— So good.....a staple in my bar!

— Hands down one of the best whiskeys I’ve ever had. Huge flavors of caramel, butter, and toffee swirl around each other in a grand ballet and the finish lingers yet goes down smooth.

— This stuff is amazing Anyone who disagrees obviously doesn’t know TN whiskey Highly recommend

Chris
Chris,
Smooth. No bite. Easy drinker
 
Lance
Lance,
Like this, more spice than the Uncle Nearest 1884. Offers a little more bite on the tongue at the finish but still superbly smooth.

Andrew,
As with many premium brands, the story is what sparked my interest. Named in honor of the Black man that taught Jack Daniel how to craft his spirits, this company is reclaiming whitewashed American history. The good news is that this smooth spirit is very drinkable, and well worth the attention. The finish pushes you to pour another, and another. This is one of the only bottles that I keep multiples in stock of. Great any night of the week, and even some mornings. ;)

Peppery yet smooth taste. Definitely follows the flavor spiral.

Very nice....Definite Apple on palate followed by nice heat/spice that lingers at the finish and beyond. Excellent choice

Impressive story behind this Bourbon. To have the original recipe passed on for generations is a great statement for this Bourbon. Great taste, and can be drank either neat or with a sphere or block.

Andreous,
This is not a drink for the newbie. If you are not a Jack fan please pass on this bottle. It has a LOT of heat and very little tasting notes. It burns with little flavor, for me. I will go back and try more since I own the bottle but I will not buy it again.

fruiti notes of flavor shine thru with subtle maple.

Derek,
Just pass. I get really weird notes from this. Notes whiskey shouldn't have. Just say no.

Apple, nutmeg, hay... At 100 proof, it holds up to ice

Pretty good
 
Daniel
Daniel,
Sweet, cherry, caramel, mineral, banana, and a charred / metallic finish. And yep walnut definitely makes sense after seeing the flavor profile. A little bit too much burn in the middle and end for me. It’s good, but not $60 good. I’d rather have a bottle of Bookers bourbon at this price point which is why I’m giving this a 7. Nothing extraordinary about this one for me, but definitely drinkable.

Truly Tennessee's Finest. Now Dearest to my heart and a permanent place on my bar. Smooth, caramel apple, with a spice finish.

Nichole,
I don't love it like I was hoping for. I enjoyed their 1844 and found this locally but just not a favorite or one I enjoy sipping neat. Grassy notes on the nose and a bit of charcoal. Palate wasn't anything great. I've got a bottle so going to keep giving it a chance to warm up to me.
 
Andrew
Andrew,
All in all great whiskey, smooth from nose to finish,
 
Koroun
Koroun,
I loved this one and loved the historical significance as well. It was pleasing to the palate from the first sip and paired well with several of my cigars.
 
Henry
Henry,
I love this whiskey! A new favorite.
 
Christopher
Christopher,
Nose: Brown sugar. Black walnut shells start coming through strongly. A touch of honey, or maybe molasses. Brandied cherries underneath. Palate: Black walnut, heavily. Some baking spice on the back of my tongue. Some bitterness, probably from that black walnut flavor. Molasses underneath. Some of that oak (this is a 10+ year old whiskey, after all) around the sides of my mouth. The instantiation is tanniny. Finish: The black walnut shells linger, pleasantly, at the tip of my tongue and roof of my mouth.
