Sipped one of the best Bourbon's I have ever had last night. As a long time lover, I feel jilted by Kentucky! To pricey for my everyday consumption, but now on top of my list for special occasions. Double Barreled Gold and it's from Tennessee

JD technically is bourbon, they just choose not to call it that and brand it as Tennessee whiskey

You’re right. The filtering they do Is unique and doesn’t fit with other bourbons.


Well not to get super techinical, but

It's actually different in that JD and Dickel (both Tennessee whiskies) are filtered through sugar maple charcoal (to meet the Tennessee whiskey requirements), while most bourbons that are filtered through charcoal (not all are filtered) are just filtered through activated charcoal. The difference being that the activated charcoal imparts no flavor to the bourbon, while the sugar maple charcoal does impart flavor to JD and Dickel.

Dropping knowledge over here, nice.

I’ll add that Pritchard’s is the other big Tennessee Whiskey distillery, and they do the same.

They want it branded Tennessee Whiskey and not Kentucky Bourbon, and have unique parts of their distilling processes to ensure such.

The other major difference is Tennessee Whiskey is filtered through the sugar maple charcoal before it's aged in barrels. This may add some flavor but I suspect it alters the clear liquor only slightly, but whatever it does gets amplified as the whiskey ages in barrels.

Charcoal filtered bourbons are filtered after aging in barrels just before being bottled. This is filtering removes oils and fatty acids, which take flavor and viscosity too. It creates a smoother experience, but flavor and mouthfeel suffer IMO.

It is, but J.D. won the legal fight to not have to call it bourbon.

JD's special releases and single barrel offerings can be as good or better than the best Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskeys. No reason to be sad. It's not an either or proposition it's both and. If you can track down a bottle of a special release from JD last year called Heritage Barrel you need to. It's stellar.

I’ve never understood the lack of love for JD.

I’ve always thought of Black Label No. 7 as an outstanding product for what it is.

And one trip to that distillery in the hills of Tennessee will up your appreciation level. I have great respect for that company and town after my visit there.

Edit: And, also, yes to the others. True Bourbon is from Kentucky. True Scotch is from Scotland. Otherwise it’s just whiskey.

for an inexpensive bourbon? I'm certainly not an expert, but a friend offered me some recently, and I thought it was pretty good.

Makes an incredible bourbon and I believe water comes from Kentucky so it’s allowed to be called that.

Let me a Tennessee Whiskey that I was introduced to at the Texas A and M game. My Nephew who we invited to the game brought a bottle of Uncle Nearest 1856 which I had never seen or tasted. It is very good. I strongly suggest you give it a try. We had a bunch of AM fans sipping and everyone enjoyed! It is the real deal.


^^VERY good

I was at a bourbon (and BBQ) festival in Franklin TN (outside of Nashville) at the end of August, and Uncle Nearest was one of the 15 distilleries there. Interesting back-story, highly recommend looking it up.

The 2 Uncle Nearest offerings were my favorite out of probably 20 I tried. Unfortunately, they weren't selling there. They were also a tad above half the price of my next favorite, so not a bad deal.
