  • Excerpt: It’s always made me laugh that fine gentlemen such as Lemmy Kilmister or Keith Richards were so deep into Jack Daniels. Have they ever tried Octomore? Seriously, this is no bad whiskey at all, it’s just very consensual. Some aspects remind me of Dad’s Southern Comfort.

  • Excerpt: The bitter finish seems uncharacteristic when considering the sweet nose. Overall, the availability, price, and popularity make this Tennessee Whiskey worth keeping on the bar, if only to make a Jack & Coke for your whiskey loving friends.
