Whiskey Dreams – Jack Daniels

I didn’t start drinking until later than most. Blame a Baptist college and social circle that didn’t involve a lot of parties.

It took me years to enjoy a good beer and half life to learn how a good bottle of bourbon could warm my heart as it warmed my palate.

When I began to drink whiskey my go to was Jack Daniels. It is easy to find, has consistent quality, and mixes well.

I actually feel bad for how I rank Jack Daniels overall. It was my first whiskey, but I’ve grown in the last five decades and my honest evaluation is that Jack Daniels is a 51/100.

Pros:

  • Easy to find
  • Cheap
  • Great for mixers.

Cons:

  • Rough edges on the palate.
  • Post sip bite makes it hard to sip, drink neat or even over ice.
