    both nearly identical products, same size, price, even packaging.

    i have tried both, JD does taste sweeter somewhat, jim black is a bit stronger at 43%.

    has anyone else tried jim?

    which one would u go for?

    only ever tried JD, to be honest I've tried other whiskeys and they are just as nice, I think JD rides of its label and reputation a bit. I look forward to trying this jim bean...

    Not much of a bourbon, sour mash, whatever drinker - at least, not one you generally find in your local or in Spoons (shudder). I think Oddbins are selling Elijah Craig at the moment and I'll make an exception there be it in straight, old fashioned, or in a good Manhattan. You should be able to find Makers' Mark also.

    Go by your own tast preferences - if you're just planning to neck it mixed with coke it's not really a pressing concern.

    I'm not sure what cheap knock-off you lot are drinking but Jim Bean isn't the proper drinks name, it's Jim Beam

    You can't really call JB Black and JD 'nearly identical as JB Black is a premium product and JD isn't.

    A fairer comparison is JB White Label and JD.

    I was thinking that from the start...maybe these people haven't really tried and are pretending to be experienced whiskey drinkers when in fact they have NEVER TOUCHED WHISKEY.

    ...not really guys don't hurt me...:o:
