Regular readers know that I am a fan of flavored whiskey, I've always got a bottle of something in my freezer for a chilled shot or flavored specialty in the liquor cabinet to enjoy on the rocks. My favorite in all this tasting fun so far, has been Skrewball.
Today's tasting: Jack Daniel's Tennessee Honey
This is a deceptively GOOD whiskey!
Honey is SUCH a nice pairing with whiskey and Jack Daniel's has done things right by NOT making this overly sweet like other makers tend to do when it comes to flavored whiskeys. The honey is subtle in the nose, there's nothing harsh about this at all and you get the nice Jack Daniel's whiskey finish. This whiskey is almost, note I wrote 'almost' too smooth. What a nice combo.
As always, I tried this whiskey neat, on the rocks and in a chilled shot. It's very good any way served. It would also lend itself well to mixology, adding a splash of ginger ale comes to mind right away....
Costing me about $21 for a 750ml bottle, Jack Daniel's Tennessee Honey is definitely a repeat buy and gets 4 out of 5 Bachelor on the Cheap stars!
