Correct. Jack Daniel's is Tennessee Whiskey. Same basic mash bill but passed through charcoal.
2. All bourbon is made in Kentucky.
Sure, you can make bourbon elsewhere, but why? They're making "good" bourbon in Texas, but you can't tell me that somebody outside of Austin is replicating the natural temperature variations that they get in Kentucky.
3. Older bourbon is better.
Usually, but not always. Older bourbon is *generally* not as alcohol "hot" as a younger variety.
4. You can't add ice and mixers.
I like an Old Fashioned, but I'm not using anything more expensive than Beam to make it.

Hmmmm...

Thinking about #3

Being Friday...and perfectly nice up here in Musky Country...I'm wondering - should I or shouldn't I?

I've got a perfectly good bottle of Wild Turkey 101 open already...

From the banks of most of the rivers I fish there is no such thing as shitty bourbon. Some of it just hangs around longer. And belongs to someone else.

People who say "You can't put ice or water into whiskey. It must be old. You can't make cocktails with it. Blah, blah, blah" = People who say "You must fly fish with a floating line. You must fish for trout with dries, upstream. You must never fish with weighted flies. A clouser minnow is a jig. Blah, blah, blah"

Jis sayin'
