  • Excerpt: It doesn’t all come together quite perfectly, its tannic notes lingering a bit, but it’s an altogether impressive bottling from one of the biggest names in American whiskey.

  • Nose:

    Oddly corn forward - almost smells like a corn tortilla or tortilla chip. Very distinctive. Banana, vanilla, mild wood funk, toffee and something that can only be described as peanuts. Its inviting and its not like Beam Peanut Brittle funk but this smells like a new can of Planters peanuts being cracked.

  • Taste:

    Medium mouthfeel, this is definitely better than Signature, another 100pf Old Forester product. Thicker, sweeter but more balanced. There's more peanut here, typical BF bananas foster, toffee and some nice spice and clove. I'm actually enjoying this.

  • Finish:

    Medium and warm - grows more spicy and there's a good deal of complexity here. Lots more honey roasted peanut and banana split sundae (banana, light cocoa, vanilla, some caramel)

  • Overall:

    I love to hate Jack Daniels and I have to admit I'm pretty impressed that this wasn't terrible. In fact, I quite liked this compared to the normal No.7 or the other Old Forester Products I've had. I'm giving this a Rank 6. The mouthfeel was good, the flavors were unique and well balanced. Sometimes I am surprised and this was definitely one of those cases.
