My first Bourbon for 2017. Last year I started on quite a good note with the Makers Mark. It is one of my favorite bourbons. Will this year start off with a Bourbon BANG? First Bourbon for 2017 is the Eagle Rare Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey. I tried a variety of Bourbons during 2016. Very few of them impressed. I love the sweeter taste of bourbon. I have a sweet palate and love the sweet toasted oak and vanilla notes that a bourbon offers. The bourbon variety available in South Africa is quite small and it feels like it is becoming smaller. Yes, you can buy some interesting bottles through Bottleshop, but they are not readily available to the average bourbon whiskey drinking.

I got this bottle of Gentleman Jack as a gift from someone about a year ago, and it is certainly time that I open and try it. I have tasted the Jack Daniel’s Old No 7 before and gave it a Very Good rating. Certainly not our favourite dram, but it will do in a pinch (perhaps a very tight pinch, but it will do). Will this premium version of Tennessee whiskey impress us more?
