Jack Daniels Tennessee Honey and Fireball Whiskey

16 Nov

The last time I went into the alphabet store, I noticed a new brand of Jack Daniels and instantly decided to purchase a couple samples. I am proud to present JD Tennessee Honey.

Airplane bottles are awesome for a couple reasons:

  • They are made into miniature versions of the original bottles so you feel like a giant chugging whole bottles of booze in single gulps
  • They are easily hid and smuggled into professional sports venues, places of employment, weddings, movie theaters, family gatherings, etc
  • They are a cheap way to try a new alcohol. I mean none is so awful that I wouldn’t finish a bottle, but I’d rather put more delicious crap down my gullet
  • You don’t have to decide between brands and flavors. You can catch them all!
  • They get you fucked up

So after making them take a little nap in the land of ice and truck meat (don’t ask) I poured them into shot glasses and away we went.

My first sniff did not bode well, but since it was my first whiskey shot of the day, I didn’t lose too much faith. Spoiler alert: it sucked. It tasted very similar to black label but gone horribly wrong. Ok, slight hyperbole but not far off. For the record, I’ve had multiple “honey” whiskeys, some better than others and this was by far my least favorite.  I don’t know if it needed less “Jack” flavor or more honey flavor, but it seemed like the two flavors were battling it out and they both lost. I, on the other hand, had a shot of 70 proof juice so I win as always. I may have to do a death match review of all the major honey whiskeys to determine which I would recommend, but until then I washed away the awful with an ice cold PBR and shot of Fireball whiskey. Huzzah for awesome!

Awesome nd awesomer

I’ll skip the PBR and go straight to the Fireball. A lot of friends have compared it to RedHots. Since RedHots suck and are garbagebeans, I will compare them to… hmmm, idk….. Fireballs?  There is an amazingly balanced cinnamon flavor that is only enhanced by the sweet sweet whiskey after burn. I can’t recommend this highly enough. It is my current favorite new liquor and have just resolved to get a full sized bottle ASAP.
