    Re: Jack Daniels American Forests?

    You know this thread has got me to thinking that a JD SB might be worth trying again.
    It comes in at 94prf, it'd be a good idea to split a bottle with 1 or 2 others.

    Instead of regular JD Single Barrel, I would get the Silver Select 100 proof at the Detroit duty free. It isn't any more expensive than the regular single barrel at normal retail. I am getting some JD American Forests bottles too. I plan to compare them to some late 80's 90 proof JD. It should be interesting!

    Nope, it was me. I haven't had any in years.

    Yeah, the SS might be best.

    I really like the JD SB. It is very enjoyable, but not very complex. Great for sipping on when you want a good drink, but don't want to think about it too much.
    Hope is subversive, for it limits the grandiose pretensions of the present by calling into existence the possibility of something better.

    I grew up on the 90 proof, it was my Dad's favorite, and am pleased to see JD is supplying something like it was formerly. The price puts me off though, Dad also taught me to pay what something costs but not more than it's worth.

    As I stated earlier, I was able to get some JD AF cheaper than the
    standard 80 proof JD. That on-line seller no longer lists it on their
    website but maybe you should keep an eye out for the JD Angelo
    Lucchesi - it is 90 proof and maybe the price will drop low enough
    to interest you.

    Re: Jack Daniels American Forests?

    Any idea why this was such a bust of a release? I picked up a bottle of this at a store in Chicago today where it is also at $21.99. I like my recent release bottle of the JD single barrel enough that I figure it might be a close enough replacement. Actually the formally written shelf talker, with no reference to who wrote it, refers to this as single barrel but I'll presume it isn't. When it comes to estery fruit forward whiskeys I still prefer Barton BIB or 1792 Ridgemont Reserve but the dryness and char of Jack SB adds a nice change of pace on occasion.

    Agreed. I'm really not a JD fan, but someone convinced me I would like the SB... he was right. I always have a bottle of JDSB on hand. It is very enjoyable pour.
