Re: Whisky

Jack Daniels is a Tennessee whiskey, to be bourbon it has to come from Bourbon County, Kentucky. Tennessee whiskey is more similar to bourbon than it is to scotch, which makes a lot of sense given the geography. Bourbon is a type of whiskey, just like scotch is. Scotches are whiskeys from Scotland.

Whiskey ratings depend a lot on personal preference, but I would say it is similar on the spectrum to where budweiser is for beer. There are plenty of beers of higher quality / better tasting than Budweiser, but it's not terrible.
