A not particularly fantastic yet exceedingly popular whiskey
. I find that it's most drinkable induced straight
in copious amounts, which will lead to an absolute cunt
of a hangover
often accompanied by partial memory loss; however, it appears to be most popular in Coca Cola
or on the rocks
. Take it how you like it - Jack Daniels is not a drink to be savoured, unlike a good single malt whisky
like Laphroaig or a traditional Kentucky Bourbon
like Van Winkle.
Jack Daniels is not a Bourbon but a "Tennessee sour-mash" because it employs the extra process of charcoal mellowing to add flavour, which some consider cheating the system. Incidentally, a bourbon can be made anywhere in the United States, not just Bourbon in Kentucky.
Jack Daniels is conspicuously advertised in film. Other notable examples of drinks that appear to be advertised in everything from the latest Hollywood drivel to your favourite American sitcom
are Bombay Sapphire gin
; Hennessy and Remy Martin Cognac
; Grey Goose vodka
; Dom Perignon and Veuve Clicquot Champagne
1) I'm fucking depressed
and I'm skint
, so I'm going to drink a bottle of Jack Daniels and pass out on the floor.
2) I'm very suggestible
and/or new to drinking, so "I'll have a JD and coke please barkeep".
3) Did you see 'Scent of a Woman'? What a load of shite
. The entire plot revolved around Jack Daniels, or "John Daniels" as the protagonist affectionately called it.
