A premium version of Jack Daniel’s Tennessee whiskey, Gentleman Jack exhibits impressive complexity and flavour. The main difference is that it enjoys a ‘double mellowing’ as it’s filtered through charcoal both before being filled into the barrel (the Lincoln County Process) and before it’s bottled.
Certainly good enough to enjoy on its own, in his book Whisky: The Manual Dave Broom also suggests that Gentleman Jack actually works better than the regular Jack Daniel’s Old No.7 in a Jack and Coke too.
This Tennessee whiskey is filtered through charcoal twice, once before being filled into barrels and once prior to bottling. A rare Jack Daniel’s release which is amber in colour and rich with toasted wood and vanilla.
Gentleman Jack Tasting Note
Nose: Spicy nose with caramel, charred oak and a little aniseed.
Palate: Liquorice-led palate with oak and cinnamon, a touch of banana too.
Finish: Roasty and toasty finish, plenty of spice and citrus too.
