Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Honey is a blend of Jack Daniel’s flagship old no.7 and special recipe honey liqueur. Enjoy neat, on ice, or in one of the simple Jack Daniel's recipes below.
Tasting note: Bright gold straw appearance. Smells like dilute maple syrup over banana and pancake - unusual for the genre. Silky, slightly viscous entry leads into mild, sweet flavours of golden syrup and creme caramel with the maple syrup characteristics returning at the finish. Concludes relatively short with the maple syrup lingering. Of several whiskey based honey liqueurs to hit the shelves in recent months this is one of the more interesting examples, but where's the honey? 35% Alc./Vol.

The liqueur produced by the Wild Turkey Company (one of the few bourbon-based liqueurs on the market), aptly enhances the honeyed feature of Wild Turkey Bourbon resulting in a unique and delicious spirit. Pure natural honey is blended into a bourbon-based formula, which becomes a smooth cordial with a sweet, extremely mellow flavour. The Liqueur marries well with Wild Turkey Bourbon to make a Kentucky-style "Golden Nail." It also goes well with vanilla ice cream, pecan pie, or as an ingredient in a butterscotch sauce. A recommended novelty for the Bourbon enthusiast.
Tasting note: Gold appearance. Smells of Bourbon and vanilla combined with confectionary overtones (bubblegum / sherbet). Where’s the honey? Thick delivery sees vanilla, sherbet notes repeating over a creamy texture. Gently spicy, warming spirit backbone. On the drier side with moderate length. Pleasant but lacks genuine honey character. 35.5% Alc./Vol.
Balcones continue their innovative course with this one-of-a-kind Texas spirit made from local wildflower honey, mission figs and turbinado sugar and aged to perfection in small oak barrels. It defies categorisation, both in ingredients as well as the final flavour with elements reminiscent of tequila, scotch, young cognac and rum. Be the first to try it! 47% Alc./Vol. Awarded a Silver medal at the 2010 San Francisco International Spirits Competition Tasting note: Deep brassy gold. Sweet spices feature with cinnamon, vanilla and manuka honey amid hints of pepper. Remains fairly subdued with no great change after several minutes in the glass, with the exception of added honey sweetness. A light entry leads into a concentrated, somewhat hollow mid palate that’s carried by the spirit warmth. Finish is more like spiced rum, with sweet spices, dilute honey and mocha notes lingering in the aftertaste. The flavours are not easily pinned down, but the gist of this is somewhere between young bourbon and a decent spiced rum. 47% Alc./Vol.

Honey Bourbon Liqueurs are seemingly all the rage in town - this is another to add to the mix. Jim Beam Honey combines real honey with the distillery's 4 year old Bourbon. The flavour is as you would expect, sweet and seductively smooth.
Other reviews... Flavoured whiskeys are all the rage in the States right now, and have been responsible for some impressive sales figures. Following on the heels of Red Stag, Jim Beam Bourbon has produced a honey-infused Bourbon, which by law must be described as a 'spirit drink.' The Beam take on whiskey and honey liqueur offers a floral nose, with coconut ice, honey, cinder toffee and developing vanilla, while the palate offers lots of not unexpected honey, along with caramel. Lingering honey in the soft, smooth finish. This works well when served 'on the rocks' or from the freezer. Rating: 3 Stars - whiskypages.comsize>

Bourbon remains the cornerstone of the American whiskey industry. By law, both Bourbon (and Tennessee) whiskeys must be a minimum of 51% corn. Likewise, to be declared 'Rye' the mash bill must be at least 51% rye. Other grains like barley or wheat make up the shortfall. Regulations for maturation are simple yet strict - the new spirit must be aged in new charred oak barrels. Tennessee whiskey has an additional stipulation: It has to be filtered through charcoal before entering the barrels. Otherwise it's produced in an identical fashion to Bourbon. Other categories include White Dog, Moonshine and single malt American whiskey. The robust, full flavoured nature of most American spirits makes them compelling straight up, as well as a preference in a wide range of whiskey-based cocktails.
American Whiskey is growing in popularity.
Scotch whisky may be American whiskey's inspiration for long-term revival. The steady growth in sales of Scotch single malt and high-quality blended Scotch whiskies has not gone unnoticed in the States. Almost all of the Kentucky and Tennessee whiskey distilleries are now marketing high-end "single cask", "small batch" and older age statement whiskies that have found great success among upscale consumers. The United States may yet, in the words of one commentator, "turn away from foreign potions and return to its native spirit."
