    Jack Daniels Holiday Select 2013

    This years Holiday Select is 98 proof and goes for $49. Its got the classic JD taste but deeper. A little more oak, and a little more char. Definitely a little bit hotter with the upped proof but very drinkable. It does not have the maple notes of the JDSB. I like this years a lot better than last years. May not be worth it to some but I like it quite a bit and its nice to get a higher proof Jack to drink.

    Interesting about the 98 proof, I wonder how that works exactly.

    Give the people what they want is what I say, curious this select product is priced the same as the unaged stuff.

    Theyre going in the right direction!

    I'd love to try it, but $50 seems kinda high still, for a NAS 98 proof whisky. BF marketing at it's best, huh?

    I saw two of these at Sam's last weekend, but didn't want to take the $50 plunge. I am reaaaaly enjoying my Dickel 9/103 lately. It is 5 points higher, $5 less, and has a 9 year age statement though.

    Those Single Barrel Dickels (the 9 and 14) are both incredible

    It's refreshing Diageo has stopped ignoring Dickel, perhaps they've discovered a unique product on their hands.

    Be careful what you wish for, especially with regard to Diageo!

    Although it applies more and more to any of the big boys I suppose.

    As much as I'm emjoying the Dickel 9/103, I think its priced a bit high. I think $35 or so should be more reasonable. $45 is pushing it

    Why is $45 pushing it?
