I'm not a great lover of No.7 neat but it serves it's purpose with mixers on holiday in the sun, this expression has most of the flavour removed by the second filtration. The basics are still present sweetness with a bit of ripe fruit and charcoal not a great deal else, it is so lifeless I think I would prefer a cup of tea.

I bought this as I was having a group of non whisky drinkers over for a bourbon tasting, not one of them had tried any true bourbon but everyone had drunk JD at some point so got 3 Tennessee Whiskeys too break them in gently.

All 3 unanimously bottom 3 although I would never turn down another glass of the JD single barrel or Silver Select I don't think they are value for money compared to WT, Four Roses and Blanton's.

I agree - this whisky serves no purpose in the universe.

I've never owned a bottle of Gentleman Jack. I don't expect that I ever will...because I have tried it.

A couple of them enjoyed this until they tasted Buffalo Trace, then Four Roses Sm Batch the Blanton's Original was most people's favourite on the night with FR 1B close behind. It was a sorry last place for this poor effort but the other 2 JD's had a couple of them teetering but the cost to quality ratio is just not worth it.
