Got a chance to spend some time with this American dream of a whisky . Had always had it before with Coke . When I got to nose it , it gave me an impression that it is going to be very sweet . The strong vanilla is overpowering and it is followed by a whiff of alcohol which numbs you a bit . Hints of smoke , sweet floral aromas follow when you cut it with a little water . The taste is sweet at first .You can actually taste the smoke and wood . Hints of cocoa , wet mud , and sweet caramel follow . The finish was something to be desired . It had a prickly new wood finish to it .

All in all , it starts with a great promise ...keeps that promise around and then when you expect more , it stops short of delivering it .

It was much better when I had it with Coke ( the finish part).

My sister once had a bottle of Jack Daniels Old No. 7 that I very much liked. Every other sample of it that I have had before or since, and also of Gentleman Jack, have seemed to me relatively crude and unattractive. The sugar maple charcoal filtering really differentiates Tennessee Whiskies from bourbons and gives them a noticeable maple sugar sweetness. Among the Tennessee Whiskies, and there are only two, Jack Daniels and George Dickel, the one I like the best, by a landslide, and would recommend most highly for a light ethereal experience, is the George Dickel # 12. (The George Dickel # 8 is much rougher than the # 12)
