Review and Tasting

Sampled on 29/05/2016

Appearance

Clear, mid golden amber.

Aroma

Toasty oak, spicy vanilla, popcorn and caramel with tar, mocha coffee, rolling tobacco, ripe banana and gingerbread.

Taste

Buttery char-grilled corn-on-the-cob, burnt popcorn, vanilla, salt and caffe latte with overripe banana, gingerbread and cracked black pepper spice. Faint sweetness.

Aftertaste

Slight saltiness to lingering dry new oak, barbecue charcoal an spicy finish.

Overall

Due to its mass-market appeal and comparatively low alc./vol. (even to its former self) Jack is knocked by many whiskey aficionados, but Old No.7 is a dependable whiskey with a like-able slightly rough around the edges character, a character that stands up to being drowned by the likes of cola. However, try long over ice with soda and enjoy this whiskey's lightly salted popcorn-like flavours with toasty grain, charcoal and a faint sweetness.
