    Drinkers Object to Jack Daniel's Change

    By MATT GOURAS, Associated Press Writer

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. - If you've noticed that your Jack Daniel's is carrying a little less kick these days, you're probably right.

    The famed "sippin' whiskey," which advertises a recipe traced back to the nation's first registered distillery, has lowered the alcohol content of its flagship brand, Old No.7 Black Label.

    The whiskey now registers 80 proof, instead of 86 (or 40 percent alcohol versus 43 percent), and some drinkers feel betrayed.

    Altering the alcohol percentage will alter the taste. If you're a die hard J.D. fan.......

    Anyone see that Kalashnikov is now making a vodka, for sale in the UK and Russia? And if you save up enough proof of purchases, you get your own AK-47! :D

    Not only is it real - I've consumed at least three bottles of Kalashnikov Vodka :)

    Next time you are at the house jeff, I'll show ya. :)

    They used to make a vokda-filled glass AK47; my dad almost picked one up for me the last time he was in Izhevsk, (home of Kalishnakov)...but he was worried it'd break before he got it home.

    I found a pic of it on google -
