In my opinion Evan Williams (Black Label) tastes absolutely nothing like Jack Daniels Old #7. And I keep both of them on my shelf‼️While I have not specifically tasted Evan Williams Honey Flavoured Bourbon, and it has been 22 years since I sampled regular Evan Willams, I can remember it being not only similarly bottled/marketed, but also very similar in flavour to Jack Daniels.
With that said, I have tasted the Jack Daniels Honey version, and just as yourself, I too found it not to my liking. Neither neat, nor on the rocks.
As opposed to just giving it away, or dumping it in the pail, I did ask around first, and was pleasantly surprised to find a use for the product. It goes very well, drizzled over some plain vanilla ice cream, for dessert purposes. Much like the liqueur Frangelico.
Again, just a drizzle.
Actually, as I am sure you know, C-3PO from Star Wars fame.
Just another protocol droid of this modern age, who is adept at rage-googling, and quoting textbook narratives.
"Jack Daniels markets the liquor simply as Tennessee whiskey rather than as Tennessee bourbon.
Tennessee whiskey is classified as a straight bourbon authorized to be produced in the state of Tennessee.
Tennessee law (57-2-106) further requires most producers of Tennessee whiskey to filter the spirit through charcoal made from maple prior to aging, in addition to meeting the above requirements (the Lincoln County Process)."
The first time I tasted Jack Daniels Honey quite a few years ago when I was flying to the DR in first class. I had never heard of it so I ordered some. They served it to me on the rocks and Wow it was good. I ordered another. And would have just kept ordering if I did not need to make a connection.
My post was about Evan Williams Honey Flavored Bourbon. Actually, I like Jack Daniels Honey. In fact, I think there should be a law against being able to make alcohol taste like candy.
I take a ounce of Jack Daniels Honey and place it in a 4 ounce port glass. Add a small piece of ice, I have a special tray that make them in. That lets me control the amount of water I ultimately add to a drink. I let the ice melt into the whiskey and it makes for a excellent adult desert beverage just without the ice cream.
In addition, I have not found a chica yet that did not like it.
That is just a bonus, not why I keep a bottle on my shelf.
I am glad you found a use for your Jack Daniels Honey. What is the saying? A bottle of honey liqueur is a terrible thing to waste❗
I found your post informative.
I will add your suggestion to my bag of kitchen tricks even though I do not eat ice cream. (You know, trying to live a more health lifestyle as you suggested...)
But, someone that I am entertaining might like it.
Always a pleasure to have someone contributing real knowledge instead of insulting me.
Makes for more interesting reading (at least for me).
