It's ... really not that good.
Buy some good bourbon and drink that straight or in a mint julep. Or some rye in a Manhattan. Those are great. Jack and Coke is wasting coke. And money. Money that should've been spent on better booze, mostly. Better whiskey and Coke is ... well, it's better than Jack and Coke. But now you're wasting good whiskey.
All of those are within a couple dollars of Jack (usually on the cheaper side) and are WAY better. For only a couple bucks more than Jack, you have:
Bakers (the only *other* one of the Beam's I'm going to list 'cause its 107 proof)
Which are FANTANSTIC. Beyond that, the topmost shelf is still <$50 a bottle:
Rip Van Winkle
Black Maple Hill
And those are just the ones that I know (plus the rest of the Beam line).
