Raided Score: 91 Publication: Distiller Excerpt: The nose, palate and finish can be summed up in one southern dessert: your grandmother's banana pudding.

It is cleaner, it’s smoother, there is less rawness to it and the sweet bourbon like notes (which it technically is) come out more.

Jack Daniel's Gentleman Jack is a dual filtered release from the distillery, hallmarked for being extra smooth.
Fresh rolls, banana candies. Light caramel character. Not a ton happening on the nose.
Sweet on the palate. No heat. Body is thin, no doubt a result of aggressive filtering. Banana runt candies, light caramel, a hint of vanilla bean.
Short finish, no heat, but not much happening either. It wisps away quickly and cleanly.
There's nothing wrong with this entry from Jack Daniels, but there's so little body and character that it makes for kind of a dull drinking experience.
