Pretty neat story.

I would think that Tennessee spring water, local charcoal and barrels would make it taste quite a bit different than if it was made in Wales.

They should whip up a batch over there and see how it is.

No, I'm not sure that is one of those things that you can tell ahead of time. Exception to the ban for scientific research?

Absolutely agree. Kentucky Bourbon is in my opinion the best Whiskey in the world. Even cheap Bourbon is tastier than a lot of imports that cost more.

Here's the original recipe:

1. Procure a large-some oaken barrel, stout and true
2. Gather round-thee thy relations and sodden acquaintances
3. All shall partake mightily of the soup of sour cabbage
4. When nature doth call, relieve thyselves in yon barrel
5. Seal thy nobel barrel
6. When 50-some fortnights have past'd, unbung thy noble barrel and fill bottles of glass
7. At ye towne markett, exchange bottles of "Jack" with young men of poor taste (who the continentals regard as "le sacs de douche")
8. Enjoyeth thy profit

I prefer Gentleman Jack Daniels myself. I drank JD for many years and then when GJD was released I tried it and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

I drink Scotch now. Glenlevit is my personal favorite.

I enjoy beer as well. Love the micro brews. Much better than the commercial crap. You will find Newcastle Brown Ale in my fridge. Always!

My point being, personal taste above all else.

Something made by European immigrants may have originated in Europe? Next you'll be telling me that apple pie was European just because apples and pie making originate there.

Jack was taught distilling & worked out the recipe in Southeast Tennessee w/Dan Call & bought him out when he went into preaching full time, i dunno where a Welsh backstory fits in...

What, submitter can't give a shout-out to Wales specifically? Are submitter and/or subby's ancestors from some other part of Britain and trying to take credit? I'll bet subby faked all the way through high school science by letting the other lab partner(s) do all the work, punctuated only by screwing something up so the other(s) wouldn't ask subby to do anything.

People who like Appalachian Whiskey (JD, Bourbon, whatever) mostly like it because it tastes better than moonshine which was long the default tipple and defined the regional taste. BUT that whiskey it still tastes a bit like moonshine to give it that down home flavor. Sure, moonshine tastes like crap, but that stuff is slightly better than crap.

You can always tell that a southerner or hillbilly is pretentious when they engage in snobbery over their fancy moonshine choice.

I've got a bottle of Welsh wihiskey. It tastes a little like a less sweet version of Southern Comfort.

Um - I would agree with you until I had actual good moonshine. It's just like microbrews - can be easily shiatty or really good depending on who makes it.

Maybe that makes me pretentious, but whatever. I wish I could find some good stuff up here but alas I'll stick to Bulleit.

I finally broke down and bought a pint of JD to drink straight when I realized I'd never tasted it outside of a glass of coke. It's really weird: everything you get from it in terms of flavor happens as soon as you put it in your mouth, and after that split second there's just nothing. The stuff tastes hollow.

Jim Beam is 2/3 the price and tastes way better in my opinion. And that's as far as it goes, because if you're going to pay more than about $12 for a pint you might as well just get some scotch.

There is plenty of tasty bourbon for more than $12 a pint that is also more interesting than Scotch that costs 40% more.

/In the states - I feel bad for people that have a taste for bourbon in the UK.

I don't think JD is overrated. I think it is rated pretty much where it should be - it's a great drink to mix.

Makers Mark - mmm, I love me some Makers Mark. I could drink that sh*t straight. And just because it's well branded and expensive doesn't mean it isn't awesome.

Benevolent Misanthrope: Except that the name is Daniel, not Daniels. The bourbon is called Jack Daniel's. With an apostrophe.


Ahh, I always figured it was Brown/Forman who messed the label up as is their wont with most of the brands they "manage". About the only thing of theirs I buy is 100-proof Southern Comfort ; until they take it away because their marketing says people want it flavored with mango and even more sugar.

I also miss 100-proof Canadian Club it helped make a North & South (or a Canadian Cowboy I guess) that much more potent.

I think Jack is ok. The higher end stuff that they produce is much better than regular Jack. The distillery tour is a good time too.
