    Re: A Superlative Jack Daniels

    I plan on picking up a bottle of JD for our Super Bowl party, as I have several friends that love the stuff. It'll give me a chance to sample it side-by-side with the remainder of a bottle I bought last year which was decent enough but nothing special. Here's hoping the newer bottle shines!

    Re: A Superlative Jack Daniels

    I know of a store that (hopefully still) has a number of bottles of the semi-dusty old 86 proof JD. I'ill try and procure another bottle or two if I can. Maybe one could make the trip with me to the sampler.

    I would snag up on those even though I don't drink JD. I know people who do that would like to have it .

    I might do that. The problem is, the store owner knows what he has. He's raised the price some.

    What does something like that go for, Joe?

    25 is fair for the 86er, and it's good whiskey but not spectacular. If you were talking 90 proof jack, you'd have something for sure!

    Re: A Superlative Jack Daniels

    I'd never had JD (any label) in my life until yesterday, when my friend gave me a 100 ml bottle for our Friday "beer-thirty" sendoff to the week. I found it to be like liquid bananas, with a finish reminiscent of chewing on a rubber ball. Ummm, interesting? I guess it's a good mixer, with the uber-banana flavor. I suppose this bottle was not one of the new, improved ones.
