General description

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.

Nose

Mainly vanilla, and banana. Nothing overly complex. But nice nethertheless. Sometimes hints of peanut and caramel. 20/25

Palate

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

Finish

A very short oaky finish. Maybe even a tiny spice note on the back end. 16/25

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.

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.

General description

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.
