Jack Daniel's is not Bourbon.

No lime stone water not a bourbon. Not made in bourbon county Kentucky not a bourbon. Filtered not a bourbon. Jack is filtered threw charcoal, made with city water, not made in Bourbon County Kentucky. Jack is not in anyway a Bourbon!

Jack Daniel's is not Bourbon.

You are 100 percent right! It is not a Bourbon, it's not made in Kentucky for one ( which is the first rule of labeling a bourbon a bourbon). 2 Their is not as much limestone in the water in Tennessee to begin with and therefore that does not give Jack that much of a chance right there of being made with limestone water. 3 No and I will repeat this NO bourbon is ever filtered through charcoal, as is Mr Jack Daniels. If you use Jack in a bourbon competition your not a bourbon connoisseur at all. The problem is the miss information about Mash. Just because you see mash on both products does not mean their the same. Mash is a way of distilling and is not just used in bourbon or whiskey. Also take note even if a bourbon shares the same name i.e. Wild Turkey, but it does not have the same proof on the bottle it's not the same bourbon. Each proof is made with different ingredients, and therefore a totally different bourbon on to it's self. 101 proof is not the same ingredients as 80 proof. In closing NO BOURBON IS FILTERED THROUGH CHARCOAL!!! And it must be made with limestone water.
