40% abv, €25, single malt, non-chill filtered, natural colour
Nose: verry gentle indeed. Hard to find sweetness, vanilla and a whiff of citrus.
Palate: gentle medium dry, sweet, vanilla, fat, a hint of pepper
Finish: fresh, citrus, dry, short, slight bitter
Conclusion: the slight bitter put me off a little, and it might just be a little too gentle.
More info from the website: “Just like Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey and Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel, Gentleman Jack is charcoal mellowed before going into the barrel. Gentleman Jack, however, receives an additional blessing when it is charcoal mellowed again after reaching maturity – making it the only whiskey in the world to be charcoal mellowed twice, giving it ultimate smoothness. Gentleman Jack is full-bodied with fruit and spices, and its finish is silky, warm, and pleasant. When you drink Gentleman Jack, do so with pride, for this is the whiskey a gentleman orders.”
