When it comes to an American spirit, it doesn’t really get any more tried, true and blue than a handle of Old No. 7. So you can imagine our surprise when we unboxed a bottle of Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Honey Whiskey ($22). After getting over the initial shock of the bottle’s packaging that says more “lazy Sunday afternoon” than “Harley-Davidson”, we learned that the new blend is a mix of the same JD we’ve come to know and love with a secret blend of honey liqueur. The result is impressively smooth. Dangerously so. A sweet and spicy nose give way to a subuded honey and cinnamon and finishes transparently clear — it’s perfect straight or on the rocks and don’t be surprised if you and a friend have downed half a bottle in a single sitting. Traditional Jack this most certainly isn’t. The 70 proof spirit will be available for Spring landing on shelves this April. Perfect timing in our books.
