[Review] Jack Daniels Single Barrel Barrel Strength

So when I was in Chicago last year I missed out on grabbing a few American whiskies I had my eyes on in favour of some clearance deals at Binny’s, which in hindsight was probably a mistake. One of those whiskies was a Binny’s pick of Jack Daniels Barrel Strength Single Barrel, a whiskey that I’ve heard great things about even with the reputation Jack … Continue reading [Review] Jack Daniels Single Barrel Barrel Strength

Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel Barrel Strength – 17-5593

Thanks to?/u/devoz[+9]?for pouring me a sample of this. “Hey guys, I bought a bottle of Jack Daniel’s” It’s one of those moments we all dread. He’s gotten the crazy. We have to take him outside, and shoot him. I joke of course. We’d bring him to doctors to properly put down. Or keep making fun of him. That helps one’s mental health, right? Alright, joking… Continue reading Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel Barrel Strength – 17-5593

Jack Daniels Single Barrel Barrel Proof [Mystery Review]

Thank you to /u/walking_spanish [+3] for this mystery dram. Mysteries are fun. They make you take a moment and really review something without per-conceived notions. Also walking_spanish did an amazing job of hiding the final thoughts on this one. Seriously, if you send out a mystery, learn from him. A folded piece of paper with the reveal? Super awesome. Makes for more fun. Also I know a bunch… Continue reading Jack Daniels Single Barrel Barrel Proof [Mystery Review]

Toronto Whisky Society’s <10yr/NAS Social Event

Looks like them Toronto Whisky Society boys (and ladies) are up to no good again folks. Just kidding, we’re always up to great good. It was a slightly windy day in First Spring when the TWS (owners of this here website and such) had a good ol’ tastin’. We headed to Dupont, set out the nicest crackers, dark chocolates, and cheesey-poofs, and invited everyone. Entry? Well … Continue reading Toronto Whisky Society’s <10yr/NAS Social Event

Jack Daniel’s Old No. 7 [Feather’s Flight Review Set #13 / Re-Review]

This is the last of my The Feather’s Pub birthday dram reviews. Typically these are all on /r/scotch, since it’s a Scotch bar, and I’m more of a Scotch fan. However something happened while there that I need to share, so let me set the stage: I go out for my birthday. I attempt about 4-5 reviews during that time, with lots of breaks, water, etc.… Continue reading Jack Daniel’s Old No. 7 [Feather’s Flight Review Set #13 / Re-Review]

Gentleman Jack

So at the time of this review, it’s Christmas, and as usual, I’m overeating, having a good time with family, and looking through my Uncle’s booze, searching for something I haven’t reviewed before. And I find Gentleman Jack. One of two Jack Daniel’s products I have yet to review. And I sigh, and pour myself a snifter of it. Fun thing, this is basically Jack… Continue reading Gentleman Jack
