I have done this before and I will do it again: JD all the way. The earthiness in Jamie is a turn off to me and Jim Beam white is just too young. The Lincoln county process really rounds out JD's younger profile making it much more pleasurable despite its simple character. Plus I drank JD for 6 years before moving on. It was my first so you can't beat nostalgia. I am sure most of you would groan if you were offered that selection but I would be thankful that the bar had some brown stuff. Many people I know have an aversion to it.
