Jack Daniel's Single Barrel

As much as I try to like Jack Daniels and not appear to be biased against the world's best selling American whisky, I just can't find one that does anything for me, but this is definately the best one to date.  The nose is sweet, with caramel popcorn, candy floss and buttery.  The taste is sweet, sweet, sweet.  Brown sugar and chocolate cookie and quite smooth.  The finish gets bitter, perhaps the charred wood filtration, stringent and a little hot.  This gets a lot better with some ice as it closes the gap and tames the both the sweet taste and hot finish.
