PRODUCT: Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Honey

The distillers at Jack Daniel’s have created a lovely portfolio of Jack. Old No. 7 is now joined by Gentleman Jack, Single Barrel, Tennessee Fire and now, Tennessee Honey. Mr. Daniel would be proud.

For those who like sweetness, Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Honey is a blend of Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey and the company’s own spiced honey liqueur, made just for blending with Old No. 7. There’s general spice on the nose and cinnamon on the palate.

This unique flavor profile has not pleased all Jack lovers. Some comments online are literally, “awful.” Those folks don’t want their spirits sweet.

But for those who do, Tennessee Honey is rich, smooth and succulent—no heat, no burn. It is alluring, even seductive. It’s sweet without being cloying. It has a long, lovely finish. And it’s too easy to keep drinking.

Fortunately, unlike most of our other liquid pleasures, a 750ml bottle is only $22.

We received a bottle for Valentine’s Day, and we’re ready for another. We’re going to pay it backward by gifting it to our Valentine honeys next year.

You can sip it straight (our preference) or:

  • Use it in your favorite cocktails (the Jack Daniel’s website has numerous recipes).
  • Add it to iced tea or lemonade.
  • Pour it over dessert: fruit salad or cooked fruit (compote, baked apples, poached pears), ice cream or sorbet, pudding (we enjoyed it with chocolate and vanilla flavors).
