Default Jack Daniel's Overrated?

Jack Daniel's Sour Mash Whiskey is the most popular American whiskey in the world. Figured it was half way relevant for Tennessee week.

I'll be drinking whiskey on Saturday in Tennessee, but it won't be JD. I've got a bottle of Bulleit Rye I'm bringing to Knoxville.

I'm a Bourbon on the rocks guy.

Personally, I think there are much better whiskeys that are in that $20-$25 JD price point. Elijah Craig, Bulleit Rye, Four Roses, Eagle Rare are some of my favorites in that range. (I also like Scotch but the bottles I like start at $50)

What whiskey/s do you like? How do you drink it?

I am not a huge whiskey drinker...anymore. But I do know enough to know that there are several in Jack's price range...or close enough...that are better...IMHO

I prefer Wild Turkey to Jack...and quite frankly most...but would chose Buffalo Trace over both.

Once you start to take a step up in quality/price I think Jack Really starts to get run out of the building in a hurry...while WT and BT will hang around for a couple of price jumps.

I do like Makers Mark and Bulleit but at that point we are moving onto the next shelf and beyond compared to Jack.

So to answer the question...yes...Jack Daniels is overrated.

Right now I've got a bottle of George Dickel.

Whiskey is my alcohol of choice, but I don't have a name preference. Usually buy whatever is on sale at the liquor store.

What whiskey/s do you like? How do you drink it?
At the $25 price point, Evan Williams Single Barrel or Elmer T Lee (try it neat)
A little more,
Knob Creek Single Barrel Reserve or Basil Hayden (neat)

I lay off the liquor these days, but since you're talking bourbon, Maker's Mark is pretty good.

1. Laphroig 10
2. Glendronach 12 (sometimes MacCallan 12)

House is usually Speyburn 10. You can get it for $50 per handle at Fruggal McDougals. Pretty good stuff for the price.

I take mine with just 1-2 smallish cubes of ice. (cocktail ice size)

I don't like the way the Tennessee stuff tastes either. The only difference from bourbon is they filter it through charcoal, but I just don't like it.

I like bourbon on the rocks, let the ice melt juuuuust a little bit

Either Scotch or Bourbon
Scotch, any of the Glen's will do on the rocks.
Bourbon, Knob Creek or Woodford Reserve on the rocks, Maker's Mark if I'm mixin with coke.

Agree, Speyburn is a pretty decent single malt for the price.
