    Jack Daniels Tennessee Honey

    You guys can now all run out to you favorite liquor store and spend the same amount of money for a 70 proof JD liqueur as the regular black label.

    Here in Michigan is shows up at $22.95 on the states web site, which means it is available but I haven't seen it in stores yet.

    Here is the only review I could find - http://www.drinkspirits.com/liqueur/...-honey-review/

    Also a little teaser from the JD FB page - http://www.facebook.com/jackdaniels

    Pretty sure I won't be trying this, unless we get the 50ml bottles...

    Re: Jack Daniels Tennessee Honey

    I was sent a review sample yesterday. I'm not a big whiskey liqueur drinker, but I had a wee taste (chilled very cold) and enjoyed it.

    Then I went back to drinking whiskey and beer for the rest of the evening...

    Re: Jack Daniels Tennessee Honey

    I received a sample of Tennessee Honey this morning. I opened the package this evening and it was still cold. I poured a couple sips and enjoyed it for a moment. It's not bad, but it's not something I could drink a lot off. I don't know that many serious whiskey drinkers will love it. It's extremely sweet, thick, and tastes of heavily honey sweetened JD. I can see this raking it in at the bars as a chilled shooter.

    Many years ago a long-time executive for the Jack Daniel's advertising agency wrote, on the occasion of his retirement, an essay on how to screw up the Jack Daniel's brand. He meant it as a cautionary tale but they now seem to be using it as a blueprint.

    Another blackbird liquor. You know, one blackbird lands on the wire and a whole bunch follow.

    Re: Jack Daniels Tennessee Honey

    It's really unclear to me how this has a market. If I want to make a hot toddy, why do I need someone else to mix a spoonful of honey in to my whiskey?

    I'm not opposed to "flavored" whiskeys necessarily, whether they be aged in sherry casks, aged/flavored with fruit, etc.. But honey?

    Re: Jack Daniels Tennessee Honey

    I find them an interesting night-cap drink to pair with something sweet like chocolate or cake at the end of a meal.... But I could just as easily (and I do more frequently) reach for a bottle of port or liquor muscat instead.

    The one big mistake they are making with this is the proof. They made a mistake with a lot of their customers when they dropped black label to 80 proof. The definitely should have made this offering 80 proof!
