Not worth his price
|Whisky||Jack Daniel’s Gentleman Jack|
Not worth his price
tasty for one glass per evening
Just better Jack Daniel's Old No. 7, in this price level is a lot, more interesting positions
Really smooth. But not a whole lot of flavour. I prefer the bite from old no7.
vanilla, caramel, sweet
Bland and flat. Tastes like the charcoal filtered most of the flavors.
tasted at Hermans mancave! perfect!
Smooth, light charcoal, corn, caramel. It's a tamed bourbon that is a great mixer and pleasant easy sipper. For character and punch, look elsewhere. It has it's place. I like it.
Vanilla dominates the smell. The palate is classy and smooth, the vanilla and the caramel are the most predominant flavors with just a hint of cherry. The finish is long and smooth, no burning, just a little spiciness.
Fruitige geur, kruidig en bittere smaak
Mais suave que o tradicional. Muito bom para o que se propõe.
caramelo e mel
caramelo e picante. Acei até um pouco frutado, o que me surpreendeu
curto, prevalece o caramelo
A much nicer variety to the no 7. Would definitely not mind having this as a regular
fine taste and a prrfect whisky to drink after diner
Smoother than No7, but flat and simple. Not worth it for the money.
Thin, ethanol, oak and a little sweetness
Smooth but very thin, chemically, slight banana and sweet.
Short and flat
After drinking standard Jack a few times when going out (with Coke) years ago, I thought it was a good idea to introduce myself to bourbon (I know officially it's not) starting with this Gentleman. I must say I like it, it's nice and sweet, pretty soft en smooth. But at first I was a little disappointed because it's kinda watery. But the overal taste is nice, caramel, vanilla, a little spice. No need to mix, nice on the rocks though. Don't really prefer to drink it neat, because it can be a little harsh. Compared to for example Jameson.
Very sweet and gentle bourbon.
This reveiw was prompted by a request from one of our followers and is long overdue. Jack Daniels is arguably the world's most well known and widely consumed whiskeys. Gentleman Jack is their next tier offering. I found this whiskey to be simple, with not much complexity to entertain the senses. Its nose has some interesting elements, and it is easy to drink, but it finishes quites short with little to remember.
JACK DANIEL'S GENTLEMAN JACK TENNESSEE WHISKY VITAL STATS:
Category: Tennessee Whiskey
Region: Lynchburg, TN, USA
Distillery: Jack Daniel Distillery
Mash Bill: 88% corn, 8% rye, 12% malted barley
Barrel Char: #3
Barrel entry proof: unpublished
ABV: 40% (80 Proof)
Price: $26.95 USD in Idaho (sale price)
*Jack Daniels products are filtered through 10 feet of compacted sugar maple charcoal as it comes out of the still, before the liquid is put into barrels. Known as the Lincoln County process, the charcoal filtering has a mellowing effect on the alcohol. After aging, juice destined to become Gentleman Jack is given a second charcoal filtration before bottling. Additional filtering purifies and decreases oakiness, further mellowing and sweetening the whiskey.

For the evaluation, I shared the juice neat from Glencairn glasses with my daughter and fellow WhiskySuggest reviewer Hannah009.
Check out her review for this whiskey elsewhere on the app!
When first brought to the nose, I get aromas of faint fingernail polish and a sweet potpourri of light red berry nectar, possiblely marachino cherries and hints of banana. Spices of powdered ginger and white pepper are also faint and gave a certain yeastiness. I sense an overwhelming sweetness of light vanilla custard, circus peanuts and sweet hard candy. Yet this is is a fresh and simple whiskey.
The first sip gives my mouth and throat a surprising but highly subdued burn as the juice gives way to a warm perfume of light fruit potpourri and an herbal aftertaste. I had to check the ABV! The marachino cherry and banana fruits sensed on the nose now come through on the palate and compliment spices of cinnamon and cloves. The sweetness sensed on the nose is also lessened yet the vanilla custard mixes with kraft caramels and simple syrup. There are also hints of bittet walnut, light oak, and the smokey sweetness of toasted wood.
Balance, Body, Feel and Look:
Gentleman Jack is a simple balance of aromas and flavors with not much going on. The nose is sweeter than the palate and the juice is gentle, mellow and smooth. In the Glencairn, a curtain of thin liquid falls into the lightly colored russet pool, leaving a long lasting crown of clinging droplets.
This Tennessee whiskey finishes short and offers a little light fruit warmth. It is quite simple and leaves an herbal and clovey but dry aftertaste. Any woodiness has been mellowed away and is quite light and I find it hard to define as either oaky or mapley.
Fajna, przyjemna, delikatna, lżejsza niż no.7. Słodka w zapachu i smaku, krótki finisz, bardzo pijalna.
Very nice. Mir schmeckt er sehr gut. Sehr mild, ganz leichte süße, trifft genau meinen Geschmack.
Easy Drinker, kurzer Geschmack. Für alle, die es nicht komplex sonder einfach wollen.
Typé vanille, plus subtil que le n.7 avec plus de fleurs
The label makes you think it is going to be nice. WRONG. Save little bit and get yourself Elijah Craig.
light and smooth a hit of oak, honey carmel. not what i would like to drink for the cost. this is what happens when you over filter a bourbon. heading towards tasteless spirits
taste like drinking perfume
Lacks flavor. This whiskey is drinkable, but just kind of there.
Fragrant and soft. Better than Jack Daniel's Rye, original and 100 proof
The kinder, gentler, Old No. 7. One note, kinda boring.
Great on the rocks. Not very smooth, but still more smooth than Black Label. Wood taste with a hint of vanilla.
best jack i have tried yet. not as smooth as i would have liked. great sipping whiskey on the rocks.
Great, best Jack out there
Citrus flavours orange and toffee
Mellow and an easy drinker. Smells a little like vanilla and banana. smooth and sweet without being too much. Good for the money.
Better than No.7. Smooth.
one of the best sipping bourbons
keeps with the JD tradition
I often see Gentleman Jack get a bad rep. But i personally do enjoy it. Gentleman Jack is a good daily sipper for a good price. And it's a good edition to keep around the house. It's definitely one to bring out if you are introducing whisky to someone who is just starting out in the whisky world. It's incredibly mellow, easy to drink. And can start someone off on their whisky journey quite nicely. Vanilla, Banana on the nose. Vanilla caramel and oak on the palate, with a nice okay finish.
Mainly vanilla, and banana. Nothing overly complex. But nice nethertheless. Sometimes hints of peanut and caramel. 20/25
Vanilla and caramel. Stronger oak notes as it matures in the mouth. Very very mellow. little to no alcohol burn at all. For some that may be a good thing, for others quite the opersite. An extremely easy casual sipper. 17/25
A very short oaky finish. Maybe even a tiny spice note on the back end. 16/25
Smoother than 'ol No. 7 and not a bad value.
Better than the old no7 for sure.great whiskey from JD
sweet like old no7 but smoother
Smoother than the original Jack, the taste and nose are samely unimpressive.
much better than old number 7, smooth kinda mellow
smooth and not too much flavor distinction. just smoke
Nice step up from Old No7. Used to be a regular go to but pallet has changed and Gentleman has found it's way to the back of the shelf. Nice flavor, little oak and subtle sweetness.
Holy cow does this taste like bananas (I had seen other reviewers mention this, and I can confirm). Not horrible by any stretch, but almost seems like a flavored whisky. Definitely not what I envisioned based on the name "Gentleman Jack". Thought it would be more refined.
smooth af and a bit smokey
Recht süß, sehr leicht, kaum Schärfe, Klebstoff, Karamell
Sehr süß, kaum Schärfe, buttrig und ölig
kurzer Abgang, sehr weich, süß
Definitely not bad, but a little boring. I prefer a little more punch or some zest.
Apple jolly ranchers...yet not sweet. Not too bad, not my favorite, kinda harsh.
Not bad, not my favorite. Oaky. Not particularly sweet. Maybe a little floral and tart. No strong flavors.
can definitely taste the vanilla and coal. Like it more each time I have it. Pretty smooth
Very smooth, kinda watery (ish)
Une légère "coche" au-dessus du no.7.
My Go-To when winding down in the evening. Smooth feeling and good flavor.
Old go to, mixes great with two parts GJ and one part disarono and great in old fashioned
smooth, but less than exciting.
smooth finish, easy
a solid sipper available at most restaurants
Similar to classic burbon smell but a bit sweeter. Citrus taste with a hint of vanilla and smoke. Smooth and overall not bad.
Heavy barrel oak when nosing the bottle. In the glass, heavy corn and vanilla. I also got a hint of maple. First taste was very smoky, along with the classic JD banana notes. Finishes with a little spice on the tongue.
My next choice at the diner with whisky arrangement was this 40% Jack Daniels gentleman Jack.
I only had old Jack no7 so far, so I'm curious about this one.
Nosing is so straightforward 'bourbony', that every blindfolded whisky lover immediately knows this ain't a scotch.
Very smooth with sweet corn and strong vanilla notes. No alcohol burn at all.
A hint of fire and charred wood complement the sweetness.
Much sweeter and milder than old no7 at this point.
The palate is watery sweet with a lot of honey, vanilla and toffee caramel.
The woody spice and smoke keep this one interesting and balanced.
The medium finish has a surprising sharpness at first but soon a citric (slight bitter) sweetness joins the party.
The similarities with old no7 are there, but where old no7 is best used as a mixer, this one is very drinkable neat.
A nice 78 points expression by Jack Daniels.
simple yet complex at the same time
nice grain nose, floral, sweet and petrol. very sweet on the palate, cornflakes, oak, vanilla and almond tart. very nice!
sweet and smooth
rich and sweet
very similar to old no 7
and little bit more sweet but in a pleasant way
very straight forward tennessee whiskey.
nur mit Cola
not fore me..
Way too sweet
Like a mellowed our version of old number seven. Which is what it is, not really worth the price but it’s okay.
Simular to Old N0. 7, but much smoother going down. For the price point, I would stick to the basic Old No 7. Not enough difference in flavor, for me. I also prefer a little hardier whiskey.
Smoother than old no7 brand nice sipping whisky
a bit Sharp, but rich, not bad but had better.
Just like a man. Super Hot with a short finish
Corn grain alcohol
Hot Pepper, acid,
oily texture, good heat off of it, smoother than normal Jack Daniel's,
Very hot with very little flavor. the extra filtering only serves to remove flavor from Jack's original offerings.
Hot, salt, coal, cardboard orange oil, light smoke
Rubbing alcohol, orange oil
rather oily, nice mouth feel.
sweet, spices, smooth
An improvement on N°7, but didn't hook me
This is what most people think of when Tennessee whiskey is talked about. It's a good representative of the style. I consider most to be mixers and this is no exception.
Very smooth whiskey but not as much flavor as the other Jacks
better than regular jack. good mixed or with ice - daily nip.
Aroma: soft and gentle.
Taste: First gentle and oily, then sweet.
Finish: Uncomplicated, sweet
Good mixing bourbon
Nicht umwerfend aber besser als der Standard
Mild, Vanille und die typische Klebstoffnote, allerdings leichter als beim Standard
Extrem mild, der Alkohol ist kaum zu spüren, süß, etwas Eichenwürze und blumige Noten
Kurz bis mittellanger, sanfter Abgang mit etwas Eiche
Smoother than regular jack. Decent on the rocks or mixed. Nothing huge stands out in the flavor profile
pretty good for the price
An OK drink but I prefer No7
pretty good. better than regular jack
Enjoyable all purpose Tennessee whiskey. Has a great sweet, honey and vanilla nose. Taste is fairly good with evidence of nuts, wood, smoke and spice. Medium finish with a Smokey aftertaste. Soothing.
Honey, fruit, vanilla
wood, Honey, spice, smoke
nice but not as good as normal Jack.
tickles the nose and has a celery taste.
Very smooth, has a sweet taste. A splash of generic fruit is present. Very strong oak taste
Lekker, wat zachter dan de normale Jack Danieks
ehh, alcohol overpowers almost all the notes.
This was my first bottle of whiskey. I'm new to whiskey but enjoying the new taste. I don't know much about all the differences in whiskey yet or about the descriptions you use but I would definitely recommend this bottle.
smooth but with an odd finish
nice but had better...JD name sells it..bit disappointed..can buy better cheaper
Pretty disappointed after all the Jack Daniels hype. A good whiskey to have for friends who don't drink whiskey often. Notes of boiled peanuts with a little bit of sweetness. Very smooth and easy to drink so I understand the appeal but not for me.
Sweet, like it with ice.
very nice, teaste good, one of the best from JD
One of the best!
Perfect to drink without ice! The room temperature is the best to feel this unique taste!
By far the most tasty and economical jack to me.
Hele fijne zachte bourbon! Heerlijk subtiel en zoet van smaak. Zoek je een keer wat anders dan Schotse whisky? Dan is deze bourbon wel aan te raden!
Drinking this always reminds me of a ballgame. Peanuts and cracker jacks (caramel popcorn) stick out the most. smooth, and still carries the signature jack charcoal flavor, but it's more subdued and mellow in this version.
this is a fine whisky and a great 'go to' to keep on hand. Smoother than old#7 but just as good. If you entertain and have folks who like to mix it or on the rocks, or just neat, it doesn't disappoint nor hurt your wallet.
Une version plus douce du classique n°7.
Non torbato, sapore pieno e delicato
nice whisky. no bourbon!!
price quality vertellen good
Much better then old Nr. 7. It is very smooth with a taste of coal.
beter dan de gewone jack Verder niet heel bijzonder.
Pretty decent Tennessee whiskey, definitely better than Jack Daniel's flagship Nr. 7, but I don't think that the price jump is justified.
Very nice whiskey but it's young whiskey and costs a few
smooth little bite
it was nice. I'd drink it again.
