A few weeks ago, it was Wifey and I’s 3rd wedding anniversary so we popped over to Jersey for a few days to visit my brother-in-law and his family, and ate too much food (more on that soon!).

Experience: The Meeting Place with Jack Daniels

Experience: The Meeting Place with Jack Daniels

It’s a regular bourbon until it enter’s their charcoal filtering method and then it’s described as a ‘Tennessee Sipping Whiskey’or a Tennessee Sour Mash Whiskey if you look closely on the label.
