En route to a local farm for woodchucks today- stopped at a small country store to get an icea tea- years ago, they carried Rebel Yell Bourbon Whiskey- smooth as silk- surprise- they had a bottle on the shelf, and I snapped it up-- smoother than Mr. John Daniel's Black Label IMO- and like Ol' Blue Eyes- a tumbler, 4 rocks. splash of branch water, pour and sip slowly-- Aaaah Yesss! Life can be good-- RWTF. Now if I could only get some J.T.S. Brown sippin' whiskey someday-- RWTF.

Both are very average to sub-average Bourbons.

Better to go with something like an Old Grand Dad 114.

Wow- I knew there were Scotch Whisky "snobs" but didn't know that extended to Sour Mash whiskies-- I like Wild Turkey 101, Old Granddad and Dickel-- and now- Rebel Yell-- not a "sub grade" sippin' whiskey to my taste, but to each his own, as they say. RWTF

Mr John Daniels was actually Jasper Newton "Jack" Daniel. I should know, I live about 7 miles from the main entrance by the road, a lot less as the Crow Flies. On a damp day with a gentle breeze blowing out of the South West, I can often step out in my yard & smell the Mash a Working.

Legend has always had it that Jack learned the trade & got the formula from a minister, either Presbyterian or Luthern, I forget which offhand.

It has recently come to light that the honors truly belong to a slave by the mane of Nathan "Nearest" Green. Some of his descendants are still employed at the Distillery.

You can read all about it or watch a video here;

Here's the story I heard- about the famed "Black Label"-- about 1912, Mr. John D.- a short-fused gent- could not get the office safe door to open, so he kicked it with his booted foot- his large toe suffered, became swollen and infected, leading to his untimely death. At that point in time, the labels were green- Old No. 7-- so their office mgr. in respect, ordered 100 labels in black to commemorate the passing of this great man- but the clerk screwed up, ordered 1000 by mistake, and they had to be paid for- so they issued the special "Black Label Old No. 7" and charged a dollar more- the rest is, as they say, history-- RWTF

Pretty much the way it is told around here also, EXCEPT, His name was never John, it was always Jasper Newton Daniel & he was known as Jack which is the name his Whiskey sells under.

Do a google on John Daniel whiskey & then do one on Jack Daniel whiskey & see which gets the most hits. Signs abound here around Lynchburg proclaiming "I Know Jack". Everyone in this area & even worldwide knows Jack, but nobody knows John. They may know John Doe, but he didn't make TN Whiskey, Mellowed Drop by Drop, that was Jack.

It has been said ,"If alcohol is a crutch, Jack Daniels is a wheel chair!"
