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.
This whiskey is different from Jack Daniel’s Black Label whiskey, as the whiskey inside comes from one barrel, hence the title ‘Single Barrel’. Each barrel produces approximately 240 bottles, and these are unique in flavour and character from any other barrel. Almost stiffly phenolic: you can cut through the sweet roasty, oaky intensity. You less taste than eat this stuff… lovely oily middle with plenty of trademark burnt liquorice. The small grains bravely fight their way through, first rye then malt. But the rye returns with the liquorice for the surprisingly refined finale. Always an interesting brandlly bourbon-like.
