This 2 minute whiskey review is on a Jack Daniels look alike that will likely be getting a new look once they're sued by ole JD's lawyers.
So I was at Total Wine and More up in Temecula when I found this bottle for sale. It's just $14 for a full 750ml bottle and $26 for a 1.75! I was on my motorcycle and didn't have room in my backpack for a full size so I just picked up a mini to try. I definitely want to grab a full size before they're forced to change the look. Collectors item in the future?
So for such a bottom priced whiskey I am totally blown away...it's really not terrible. It's actually pretty descent. It's not something you'll be sipping neat to try to find subtle nuanced tasting notes but it's definitely a fine whiskey to drink on the rocks. Or just pick up a bottle to have a fun weekend with the boys. Skip out on the Jack and Coke and have yourself a Lonehand...while it's still on the shelves at least :)

As a fan of scotch and other whiskeys I was tired of looking up reviews for new whiskeys that just oozed of snobbery. I wanted to create an outlet for average Joe's who don't have a sommelier palate. Born and raised in Long Island, New York, I moved to San Diego, California in 2010 with my wife. I'm also a fan of MMA, pro-wrestling, comic books, video games and strongman. All subjects are topic for discussion on the podcast.
