I consider Daniel's Black Label to be my "well" whiskey. Meaning it's what I mix with plenty of water, without worrying about the taste, when I go out with friends on a regular night. Daniel's Gentleman blend, on the other hand, is uniquely smooth thanks to an additional charcoal drip filtration after it's been aged. A much more sophisticated step in Tennessee whiskey from the Daniel's co. It's quality and taste will surprise you.
