The nose is great and has some nice maple and spice to it, reminds me a bit of the JD single barrel. The palate is a different story, kind of bland with a slight bit of rye and spicy sweetness, almost like a cheap syrup. The finish has some sort of burned flavor to it, burned caramal maybe. Not much is going on here and slightly offensive in the finish. I’m not a buyer.

The chocolote on the nose is pretty dominate over any other typical bourbon smells. On the palate there is a decent amount of chocolate, though not overly sweet, slight hints of vanilla and chocolate make this taste like a black and white cookie. the finish is medium and easy to swallow. There is nothing that is offensive here, I just can’t get into the chocolate taste as there isn’t much else to it.

It’s time to review what is perhaps the most iconic American Whiskey that there is. The nose is sweet with corn, rye and wood.. nice smell actually. The palate is sweet and syrupy with some vanilla corn. The finish is where this light bodied expression really starts to fade into an average whiskey…. light lacquer with a warming sensation. Good for mixing or large group parties

This stuff is really foul and is one of the few whiskies that I actually can’t swallow. I tried again the other day and I still can’t get a glass down. It’s really sour and the taste is so watered down that it tastes almost like the regular Jack was mixed with an extreme amount of water. The rest of my tasting notes are just worthless, this really is terrible stuff. Give to someone you hate.
