I told myself I wouldn't bother writing about whiskies I've had a million times, but there's not denying Jack. Anyone can drink and enjoy this. Starts off in the glass somewhat oily (with good legs), and a smoky aroma carrying caramel and vanilla. Then you are hit with the woody peppery taste, with charcoal (with which it is filtered), cough medicine and maple - sweet and hot. A little water brings out salty and citrusy elements (though it's best on the rocks, I think). Long and surprisingly smooth finish. As good a mass market whisky as I've had; if Slash can drink it, so can anyone. Best enjoyed while you're a) playing poker, b) reading the Keith Richards autobiography, or c) snorting coke off a hooker's ass.
