    Interestingly, Lynchburg TN is still in a `Dry` county and no alcohol can be sold at or near the distillery.

    If your Country is blocking the National Geographic Channel you have bigger worries. I suspect riots soon.

    I can`t believe this is the second time I`m going to talk about this on here today. It is not the country that is blocking National Geographic, it is US copyright laws that is causing National Geographic to block the content outside the US. And I`m not complaining about it. That`s just the way it is.

    It`s also just occurred to me that I sounded very snotty there. I didn`t mean to. I can talk about copyright law all day long, so it was surprising and exciting that I mentioned it twice on IAB in one day!

    I agree with the Beam lovers, and I never really trust a booze made in a dry county...

    "How the drat does it turn brown?"

    I don`t know for sure, but I`m gonna guess it`s from the barrels that they age it in. Either that or food coloring.

    Turns brown when they add some of the distillate slag back in for flavor. Commercial refineries can use food coloring or caramel coloring to also attain color. (NOT to say J.D. does this). They also did not show how they cask that product to mellow in oak for (depending on the product) amount of time.

    I also find it interesting that a liquor factory is in a dry county. Who does that?

    "Hi, you can make it, and you can taste it when you make it, but don`t you DARE take it home with you!" Bump that place.

    The whiskey turns brown after it soaks for a long time in charred oak barrels.

    After the barrels are used they are not thrown away, instead they are sold to other companies to make scotch.

    Jack Daniels Single Barrel is one of my personal drinks of choice, each one is just a little different and aged a little more.

    Some are put through a wood chipper and sold as smoking chips for grilling. I have a bag and they smell awesome and make food taste great too. ;)

    95% of all commercial alcohol is complete crap compared to what it could be like. Check out homedistiller.org and learn how to make your own distilled spirits at home that will blow commercial booze out of the water. Added bonus: when made properly, home distilled spirits are hangover free! This is because commercial distilleries include what is commonly know as the foreshots and heads in their bottled product. These impurities can be easily removed when distilling at home.

    You actually can buy JD from the distillery. There`s a loophole where you can buy a collector`s edition bottle (which has whiskey in it) as a souvenir. Some of the bottles have a different blend of JD in them to commemorate it winning different awards. And the used barrels can also be bought in Lynchburg. One of the stores makes tables, bars, etc from them. Too bad Lynchburg is in the middle of nowhere and not a whole lot of people travel there.

    Can`t say JD is my favourite Bourbon, in fact it put me off American whiskey till Makers Mark and Buffalo Trace tempted me back, however I haven`t tried it recently, nor any of the "special" versions, so I`ll reserve judgement.

    Mill8178 - what rubbish! You know that hangover is caused by the ALCOHOL right? Don`t tell me you remove that on a home still?

    Also I`d be surprised if your average home hooch is better than Georgia Moon - let alone JD, Glenheadache, Sazerac Rye etc. If it is... why *aren`t* you marketing it commercially?

    Incidentally Highland Park is the best whisky in the world.

    Just pick an age to suit your budget.

    JD is a classic, but once you dive into the whiskey world, you realize that JD is over priced and overrated. Maker`s Mark and Buffalo Trace FTW.
