    Re: Jack Daniels Unaged Rye

    I picked one up. The smell has that white Dog tang to it. The taste is smooth with a little fruit, not much mint at all which is good in my book. A little spice. Easy drinking. Not bad especially for a white dog. Is it worth the $47 I paid for it, probably not, but its decent and a good conversation bottle.

    You gotta admire a marketing move that manages to sell less for more.

    Re: Jack Daniels Unaged Rye

    Well, was in a store in Rochester today, there she was. Had to do it. 52 bucks. Here is my theory. I took it to the distillery and tasted it side by side with the HH trybox series rye white dog. Very little difference in flavor. I think they just switched rye production to JD when B-F quit making rye for HH. Good white dog, but 52 bucks? But if you got balls enough to sell it for that, more power to you. Store manager aid it was selling too.

    That's interesting Tom because it suggests relatively little effect from the maple charcoal leaching.

    Tom I should think that cost would be covered by your R&D budget.

    I got to check the bottle to see if it mentions charcoal. If I had to bet, rgardless f what it says, it is not. But I have never had and pre filtered jd white dog.

    Re: Jack Daniels Unaged Rye

    It doesn't taste like it has been charcoal filtered to me. I will try to remember to bring it to the GBS affair this weekend and see what the goat and other members think!
    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…
