    Why bother finding it? I've tried the 20 year this year several times and it is horrendous. I sold it to a friend. Now he wants to dump it and his bottle also. It is horrible tasting and should be dumped down the nearest toilet. Buy some Jack Daniels, save your money and have a far better drink. It is not worth five dollars in my book.

      What a liar. Jack Daniels is artificially soaked in charcoal to imitate aging. There is no way in hell that anyone who knows liquor would swap a bottle of Pappy, or any of the Van Winkle brand for a bottle of Jack Daniels swill. It would be like swapping a Corvette for an AMC Pacer.

      Some pissed in a bottle and sold it to you because you are an asshole. Don't blame the world's greatest bourbon because you are a jerk. Blame your buddy for ripping you off.

      Jack Daniels is Tennessee Whiskey NOT Bourbon!

        Jack Daniels IS a bourbon by definition of what bourbon actually is. They call it Tennessee whiskey as a market differentiator, but it's a bourbon in a black label.

          Actually, NO. Jack Daniels is by every definition NOT a Bourbon. JD adds flavoring (charcoal) and therefore, by US law, it cannot claim it's a Bourbon. It is not, as you claim, a marketing ploy. Do your homework.
