We do things a little differently around here – and that’s what gives Jack Daniel’s its distinctive character. We Charcoal Mellow our whiskey drop by drop, then let it age in our own handcrafted barrels. And we don’t follow a calendar. Our Tennessee Sippin’ Whiskey is ready only when our tasters say it is. We use our senses, just like Jack Daniel himself did. In fact, more than a century later, our Tennessee Whiskey is still judged the same way. By the way it looks. By the way it smells. And of course, by the way it tastes. Jack Daniels Master Distiller #1 is the first in a new limited edition series from the makers of Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey. The package highlights the “Golden Age of Jack Danie” when Mr. Jack’s recipe and quality craftmanship practices were born. Gold foil accents hightlight the label and neck band. The side labels tell the story of how the legend was born and how Mr. Jack’s philosophy of “Every Day We Make It, We’ll Make It The Best We Can” still holds true today.
The bouquet shows a very rich and intense aroma of american oak, followed by spices and vanilla. Followed by some caramel, marzipan and a very faint hint of pears. The palate shows intense fresh oak then it hits you, followed by sweet honey. You’ll notice the spices will start to appear along with the marzipan but these flavours emerge gently. The finish is very, very smooth with a slight tingle and a bit of charred oak.
