    Re: Jack Daniels Unaged Rye

    We've heard the story but it is true . . . I was there, I saw it happen . . . standing in the parking lot at the Jack Daniels distillery I met tourists arriving for their very first visit already wearing the Jack Daniels cap and belt buckle.

    Yep. It's the greatest whiskey on Earth, ya know.

    Re: Jack Daniels Unaged Rye

    I tried it last night (A sample bottle from an industry connection, not the retail package) and I was fully prepared to dislike it. I was surprised that I didn't. Is it worth $50? Probably not. But it was quite interesting, even pleasant in a rather unique way and everyone there liked it. A very strong sour dough bready taste and not particularly rough to drink (of course I presume it has been charcoal filtered and the proof is cut with water way down to 40%ABV). A couple of talented bartenders there with us thought it had some real mixing possibilities as well.
    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…

    I'm not sure I would even try this one on someone else's dime, it's just so offensive.

    There is almost nothing I won't try on somebody else's dime! Particularly an oddity like this. Especially since it is often my own dime I am trying them on. Gotta conserve where you can...

    Of course I would try it for free, my hypocrisy only goes so far.

    Re: Jack Daniels Unaged Rye

    Would somebody please look at the retail package and see if they're still calling it 'neutral spirit.' Better yet, post a picture.

    That it's selling like hot cakes should surprise no one. Horse piss in a Jack Daniel's bottle would fly off the shelves too.

    I only saw a sample bottle with a simple printed text label. When it finally arrives here I will be happy to post a picture if no one else has. No idea when that will be though.
