Jack Daniels is whiskey. It's smooth like a good bourbon so pretty much interchangeable, especially in mixed drinks, in my opinion.

Sorry that I can't confirm whether or not it's served at IB Paraiso.

It's labeled as a whiskey.

Technically it can be labeled as a straight bourbon (aged under four years) since it meets the Federal Standards of Identity for Distilled Spirits (27 C.F.R. 5) but JD prefers to label it as a whiskey.

The regs require that bourbon made for U.S. consumption must be:

made from a grain mixture that is at least 51% corn;

aged in new, charred-oak barrels;

distilled to no more than 160 (U.S.) proof (80% alcohol by volume);

entered into the barrel for aging at no more than 125 proof (62.5% alcohol by volume); and be

bottled (like other whiskeys) at 80 proof or more (40% alcohol by volume).

JD meets all these, but it has an extra step of being filtered through sugar maple charcoal in large wooden vats prior to aging. This extra step that is not used in making most Bourbon whiskey which JD says makes it's product different from bourbon whiskey hence the decision not to label it a bourbon. (Gotta love the History channel)

¨thats not whiskey/its bourbon¨

JD is Tennessee Whiskey and not bourbon.

One interesting fact about JD is it is made in Lynchburg, Tennessee. You cannot buy an alchoholic drink in the county--it is a ¨dry¨county.

HMOM, I have to say this topic made me laugh and confused me a bit. I was looking at our bottle of Jack and clearly reading its whiskey and I was a bit confused. My husband filled me in on the whole Tennessee whiskey/bourbon thing.
