    That brand is super crappy though whiskey is perhaps the crappiest hard liquor in existence. You will get a lot of pretentious n words trying to say otherwise though. Good luck.

      It's a $35/bottle, it's very meh. "good" whisky tends to start in the $50-100 range.

      Do brandy and cognac taste the same?

        They CAN be similar. But they don't have to be. Terroir, while a pretentious wine term, does have some validity. The soil/climate can greatly impact the growing and aging process of various spirits.

          I always see charts with hard liquers flavor profiles, they have all sort fo weird shit like cream, star anise, chocolate, orange but I wonder if thats just a whole load of shaite, with wine I believe it I didnt at first but somehow wine can develop those flavors but hard booze? This jackie tasted so fricking boring man I was really dissapointed, I want to try cognac but the good stuff is over 300 bucks, which I dont really care if it ends up living to the hype, but a 300 usd bottle of dissapointment? I pass, I want to try either brandy or cognac but I want one thag truly delivers a complex flavor profile you seem to know if you can advice on anything, dont mind price range I really dont care

            If you're into exploring flavor profiles, check out Scotches in the 12 year range. Single malt ones (stuff that isn't blended) usually do not disappoint. You got a bad intro on Jack Daniels and JW Black isn't for everyone.

              No, thats whiskEy. Bourbon is good for mixing with coke and get drunk off.
              This is what you do if you want something that tastes good. There's good ones that are not too expensive either. A good bar should have a selection of single malt scotch too. You could taste a couple different ones in one sitting, then buy a bottle of the one you like.

            do you not see the irony? you tried one of the most inoffensive, cheap whiskeys but think the good stuff when it comes to cognac is only over 300 $. (which is not true)
            to answer your question, whisky and cognac are taste different. like what you imagine distilled wine would taste like.

            They CAN be similar. But they don't have to be. Terroir, while a pretentious wine term, does have some validity. The soil/climate can greatly impact the growing and aging process of various spirits.

            is wrong in saying that terroir and grape matters when it comes to spirits, the nuances you would find in different grapes and regions outside the base flavours disappear for the most part in distillation

    I got a bottle of Jim Beams Tennessee Bourbon (1.75 L) for about $35. It tastes sweet, and not very strong. After drinking the whole bottle over the course of a week, realized that the buzz just wasn't very strong. I have progressed into Johnny Walker Black (1.75) at a cost of $55. First drink I made last night with it was nice. The flavor isn't as sweet as Jim Beam's Tennessee Bourbon, it was more bitter. However, the buzz was real nice.

    Some people love it, some people hate it, some people think it's meh. De gustibus non disputandum est. I love Johnny Walker Green and Blue, though they are completely and utterly different. Single malts have a wide variety of flavor profiles, I really like Talisker, Highland Park, Laphroaig, and Edradour. Talisker is my favorite though, which is probably why I like JW Green so much - Johnny Walker owns Talisker and there's a lot of it in Green.

      Blue is kinda meh, I prefer gold to blue.

      Green is great though, sucks how rarely I can find it in stock locally though, I've been waiting on a restock for almost 5 months.

        Depends on what you're in the mood for.

          For the price it's just a non-offensive smooth whisky with barely any lingering flavor on the palate to finish. That's honestly it's the biggest offence. When you pay $200+ for a bottle you GENERALLY want something that is smooth and tastes good, but also has a lingering finish so you can enjoy sipping on it and keeping that flavor in your mouth for a longer period. But because it's (at this point in time) seen as an iconic "gift" scotch, it has been designed to be inoffensive even to non-scotch drinkers, and part of that is by making the flavor mild and have it leave not much on the finish.

          Almost all other good expensive scotch is not as mild flavored, but still great tasting, still smooth, but has a nice lingering finish, some especially lingering, others less so. But Jonnie Walker Blue has got to be the most expensive scotch with an almost non-existent finish that it's almost insulting how much they charge for it.

          Again, it's not BAD, it's just not nearly as good as other options for less, or better options in a similar price range.

          Having said all of that, it IS available in many bars around the world as an iconic high-tier scotch, and it DOES taste good if you just want a nice well aged smooth blended scotch. But if I'm going out hunting for an expensive scotch, JW Blue is far from the top of my list (though I do enjoy some of their special edition bottles and special releases)

    So JD, not JW. Stop drinking American bourbon and get something Scottish and peaty.

      Are we bees? Serious question since this anonymous poster did bring up this interesting fact. I've always seen myself as an average human not a winged insect that is approximately one inch in length; I collect money just as any other capitalist man, or is it really commune honey I gather? Please, somebody answer me. ARE. WE. MEN. OR. FRICKING. BEES? I don't want to live in a world where the other internet users could possibly be bees. I know the critics of this site say we're a hive mind, and now I worry that they are right, literally.

      Wait a minute and a second, is this why I drink mead and HONEY-flavored whiskey?
      Oh no.
      Oh frick...

    Anyone here try the green label Jack Daniel's? It has the same flavor as regular black label Jack but lighter yet still 80 proof. It's usually cheaper, too.

    Bourbon is great even though there's an Anti-American camp that fears the great and powerful corn. They call it maize because they love their little "Americans are truly a-maize-ing lol" pun. Ahem, kek kek kek. It's highly regulated compared to caramel-colored Scotch. Try any BiB or cask strength offerings and it'll change your mind.
    If you love rum or a splash of Scotch in your vodka, you'll enjoy Indian whisky. If you want alcohol in your coke and can't afford real whiskey, look into Canadian whisky.

    Jack Daniels is the median American whiskey. You could do better or WAY worse. If you want to stick to the jack daniels products, they have single barrel options that are decent.
    Johnnie Walker whiskies are inoffensive blends. The premium blends are enjoyable though.
