    Re: A Superlative Jack Daniels

    I believe that I have a bottle of Silver Select in my near future. I'm not a JD fan, but these finds are pretty sweet.

    For anyone seeking JD @86 proof, Stateline Liquors in South Beloit, IL has 750s and liters in abundance. I think the 750 was 14.59.

    Haven't seen 86 proof for years in Australia.

    Jack Daniels has been a constant companion since I started drinking alcohol. There's a story in every bottle. Enjoy.

    Re: A Superlative Jack Daniels

    OK, this time I'm sure it's Jack: found a dozen bottles of the Angelo Lucchesi bottling, 90 proof, @34.99. I've searched and searched but can't find any reviews from someone who has actually tasted this. I'm not a JD fan, but I'll bite the bullet and pay the extra cash for the extra proof if say others can speak to its quality. If it was 21.99 it'd be at home with me already.

    The Angelo Lucchesi bottling is basically what JD used to be before 1987? Or, close to what JDSB is now.

    Closer ot what it was like in the 80's. The Lucchesi is still a mix of a lot of barrels, just proofed to 90 instead of 80. Thats how they do all of their special bottlings, like the White Rabbit saloon and Master Distiller bottles they're now selling at the distillery.

    I just ran across a bunch of the Angelo Luchesi bottles @$20. Guess I'll pick up a couple for grins and giggles.

    Re: A Superlative Jack Daniels

    I bought some green label last weekend for a camping trip. I was astounded at the way it had improved. It was more like JD of old. I am told that a few years ago that some extra copper found its way into the system. I bought some black label and it is not there yet. So it makes sense the green would improve first. It had that good JD flavor that I think it lost over say the last 15 years.

    Re: A Superlative Jack Daniels

    I had a similar experience to Gary's initial post. I picked up a pint of Jack this past weekend for a quick overnight trip to see some family. I was frankly shocked at how much better it is than a few years ago. No banana, lots of caramel and a silky hint of smoke. Something else that I would call malty, I guess. Had I tasted this blind I would not have guessed it to be Jack.

    I'm trying to think if there is an 80 proofer out there that I like better. I can't come up with one. I still think it's overpriced by at least half but I can't fault the quality, as it is top notch in my opinion.
    Life's too short, and there's too much good whiskey within reach.
