discerning drunks classy alcoholics

Ah yes, the great Victoria Day long weekend, known as May 2-4 by people still drinking crap beer by the crate.

“We here at iScotch only drink the best!” – a lie, best exemplified by what we did to ourselves for you, loyal reader. We put ourselves back through the Jack Daniel’s product stack to make the best drinking suggestions for your long weekend – which is that you probably shouldn’t drink any of these things.

tl;dr on the review: if you have to drink Jack, drink Single Barrel Select.
