    Default Fake Jack Daniels ?

    Ok, i have noticed when i buy my Jack Daniels from a packy in Townsend, MA (The "Wine nook") it just doesn't taste right, in fact it tastes rather sharp. I have also noticed this with the Crown Royal i have purchased from the same place as well.

    In doing some research it turns out that there are fake Jack Daniels being sold in China, which they cut with methanol. so it is possible i guess..

    I bought a bottle from a good packy i ayer center, and dammit they taste very different.

    So, has anyone noticed this before ?

    Roscoe, I've heard that happens with bottles left in direct sunlight for long periods. That might be the case.

    Thats why I prefer the cheap stuff. Old Crow. $12 +/- a jug @nh liquor stores. Tastes better than jack and less hangovers.

    Just found this from the UK:

    500,000 worth of fake goods seized

    Published on 20th December 2012

    Sandwell Trading Standards officers officers seized around 500,000 of fake goods in a raid in West Bromwich.

    The raid, which was carried out with West Midlands Police, was carried out last weekend.

    The trader was arrested for counterfeit offences and is currently on bail pending further enquiries.

    A further business had counterfeit YSL, Coca Cola, Jack Daniels and Disney clothing seized during the course of the inspection.
    Full Story >>> http://www.sandwell.gov.uk/news/arti...e_goods_seized

    I think these are just knockoff items bearing unlicensed copywrited logos, not actual consumable products.

    I'd contact JD and tell them about it. I bet they would be interested in catching those bastards and making an example out of them. Plus if this is being sold without being properly taxed The ATF will have a field day.

    Methanol (wood alcohol) is bad news... It'll make you blind...alot of this was distributed during prohibition, from what I understand from my study of history.

    If you want a good Jack Daniels substitute for mixing with coke, try Evan Williams. I've tried it and its taste is indistinguishable when mixed.

    If the Chinese are importing whiskey with methanol in it, you should contact the FBI and provide a sample for testing.

    I drink Jim Beam. I'm not worried.
