    Jack Daniels Master Distiller Collection

    Has anyone tried this? I'm a big fan of the Single Barrel. it is an 86 proof Whiskey. they are releasing the collection in 7 bottles commemorating the 7 master distillers of Jack Daniels.

    It does sound interesting. I wouldn't mind seeing if I could start getting the collection. (2 each. 1 to test, the other to bunker)

    Not a big JD fan but have seen them on the shelf. I suspect the whiskey inside is nothing special. Seems like a collector series aimed at the hard core JD collectors. But haven't tried it so I don't know for sure.
    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…

    I may just have to do a taste comparison Single Barrel vs no 7, vs MDC.

    the reviews on this is interesting, its getting some pretty high ratings.

    I've had it, it's basically regular JD at 6 proof points higher. A little more oomph but not much. I prefer the SB by a huge amount

    Is there any other booze targeted more toward "collectors" over drinkers than JD?

    And I say that as someone who has had (more than, probably) his share of JDSBs.
    I agree with tans that the MD bottles are for collectors only. Anyone buying 'em
    doesn't care about the 86 proof. Mixers will buy the standard 80 and sippers will
    buy the SB. Gentleman Jack is for the ladies (or so it was - jokingly? - said way
    back when.) Any other JD bottle is pretty much for collectors only.
