    It's good if you like Jack Daniels, this series is a little higher proof and a lot higher price. JD enjoys a large fan base who seek out these bottles as collectables but for the price I would rather have two bottles of George Dickel No. 12.

    i love JD. so its the same whisky in the bottle as in the standard JD exept that its higher proof? making a different label and putting the word "collectable" or "limited edition" to me doesn't justify the higher price unless the whisky inside the bottle is better. so i'm just trying to figure out if i should buy a bottle of it or not.

    I guess then it hinges on whether you want to keep the empty bottle.

    Pool together some like minded friends, buy a bottle of the Master Distiller series, compare it in a blind tasting with the regular 80 proof and let us know of the results.

    Have a couple friends that are JD fanatics. They both have shrines with all types of empty collectable bottles and more nick-nacks than a flea market.

    In a weird sort of way they actually got me off Scotch and on to my Bourbon adventure, so it's all good.

    I prefer this JD expression over the black label. The White Rabbit Saloon in my opinion is slightly sweeter and better balanced than the Master Distiller Series #1.

    Do any of you JD guys remember the 94 proof Gold Medal edition they came out with about 20 years ago?

    I just buy the JD Single Barrel. It's higher in proof and a lot more "interesting" for the extra $$$. Not only that, it's really damn good whiskey (IMO).
