JW Dant Special Reserve is a very good value sour mash bourbon whisky. It is made by the Heaven Hill Distillery.

The name JW Dant has a long history of making everyday bourbons for everyone, right back to a time before mass-production. It is named after an 1830s distiller, Joseph Washington Dant. He is famous for using a hollowed out tree trunk as a still instead of the more expensive copper stills of the day. This allowed him to make his bourbon whisky cheaper.

Heaven Hill should be commended for keeping brands like this alive. In this case they can also be praised for staying true to the ethos of the originator.

JW Dant Special Reserve in its current form has strong rye notes to its flavour. It would be a good alternative mixer on any shelf.
