Well, my family picked up the mystical Jack Daniel's No. 27 Gold for me in a duty free shop overseas. This is twice charcoal filtered, like Gentleman Jack, but it is also "twice barreled" - once in charred new oak barrels, and secondly in maple barrels. Honestly, I am currently just afraid to drink it, but I'm sure that will pass. Supposedly, JD only produced 500 cases of it, worldwide, so far. It's supposedly as smooth as a baby's bottom - we're talking, reportedly, "put some of the finest Scotch to shame" smooth.

tear into that shit! what good is it just sitting there?

Hell no, I didn't buy it not to drink it.

I will, however, fight the urge to pee so that I may get my money's worth.

Be sure to post a AAR about it.

Mix it up with Rocky Top Cola and city tap water ice.

Whats something like that cost?

That looks quite yummy!

I'd say, start your evening with a taste or two if that quality liquor, and then switch to the regular stuff. It'll make it last longer and also allow your palate to appreciate the quality as well.

Trust me brother, I will, in due course, and I'll provide a full report.

If this were to REALLY take off overseas, I suspect JD might consider releasing it as a super premium state-side expression.

I have a bottle of JD gold medal edition that I purchased at the distillery on my 21st Bday. It was signed by the master distiller who was about to retire. I wont drink that.

I think they paid somewhere in the general neighborhood of $100-$200, but it was a gift, so I did not ask.

Whiskey too good to drink? Stop and think about that for a moment.

My old boss gave me a bottle of Macallan back in the 90's. I stashed it in a cabinet and forgot about it. Then I found it, and looked it up. Very expensive bottle. Considered selling it, then realized he gave those out for us to enjoy. Thanks for the reminder, I'll have a glass right now.

I think you would be doing him a disservice. The man spent years and years perfecting his craft and made sure that his last batch as the best damned batch he ever created, he wanted you to enjoy the passion in his life and all the hard work he did. I get why you're saving it, I most likely would too, but I bet he wish you wouldn't.


Fuck now I want some good whiskey. Yet all I have at the house is 18yr Jameson's and regular Jack. Dammit. I know, first world problems.

I have a bottle of Jack that still has the tabc tape over the top. My neighbor died about 6 years ago. She was 93. Her husband had died about twenty years prior. My mom and dad bought the house and this bottle of jack was hid in the return air duct by her husband. He never got to open it and I won't be opening it either.

Fine Tennessee whiskey, technically, easily meets the legal definition of Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey (aged at least two years - four years with an age statement - in new American charred oak barrels, with at least 51% corn mash, etc).

The utter beauty is the addition of the beautiful "Lincoln County Process", which essentially adds charcoal filtering of the spirit - usually, but not always, drip filtering through at least 10 feet of sugar maple charcoal.

Usually, with say Old No. 7, the spirit is charcoal filtered before it goes into the barrel/cask for aging.

As I understand it, with Gentleman Jack - and the magical No. 27 Gold - the spirit is charcoal filtered once before barrel aging, and once again before the dumping/bottling.

Fine Tennessee whiskey - we are blessed to have it.

Last Jack I had was Sinatra. It was good. Just good.

Proper bourbon is perhaps the greatest expression of the distillers art. The mash and yeast play a huge role, as does both the toast and char of the barrel. Bourbon is so specific and yet every distiller does it a little bit different.

OP, enjoy that whiskey. #7 is some of the worst shit ever but jacks premiums are usually on point.

Thank you. I plan to soon pull the trigger on some local/domestic Sinatra Select here, and I will report back in due course on it (we're talking $170 per 1 litre bottle).

Also, please don't discount the beauty of the current 86 proof "Master Distiller Series" out right now, as a limited release - IMO, it's some awesome tasty JD, for just a song.



*edit, I am a JD Single Barrel WHORE, and the Master Distiller Series, as an 86 proof limited release dumping, REALLY gives the Single Barrel a run for the money, at about $20-$25 less per 750ml bottle.
