Weak Jack

Jack Daniel's has sparked outrage among serious drinkers by unceremoniously lowering the proof of its famous Tennessee Whiskey from 86 to 80.

The change which means the hooch has 3 percent less alcohol has riled those still smarting from the "betrayal" of 15 years ago when the company lowered the strength of its 90-proof, 138-year-old original recipe, to 86 proof.

--I think departing from the tradition of the recipie is sad. Drink Zima if you want a baby beverage!

You Said

I agree with you Lawren. But have to admit I did know the proof. Just checked my bottle that I purchased this summer and I have the lowered 80 proof. Now I feel jilted!

Now why in the hell did they do that? I'm of the 'don't fix what's not broken' mind, and I hate that they made this change. (My usual drink is a Jack & sour).
