Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey is the world’s best selling whiskey, with every bottle distilled and bottled at the Jack Daniel Distillery in Lynchburg, Tennessee, America’s oldest registered distillery, established in 1866. Made from the finest corn, rye, and barley malt these choice grains are mixed with the iron-free water that flows from the Cave Spring found on the distillery grounds. From there Jack Daniel’s is charcoal mellowed drop by drop through 10 feet of sugar maple charcoal which imparts it’s distinct smoothness. Finally, Jack Daniel’s is matured in handcrafted white oak barrels of Jack Daniel Distillery’s own making.
On the nose, Jack Daniel’s Black Label offers gentle aromas of caramel, vanilla, and butterscotch. A hint of wood is apparent and toffee notes begin to appear in the glass as it opens up.
Body & Palate
On the palate, Jack Daniel’s has a smooth, smoky sweetness. It also has a light licorice note that isn’t overwhelming and lends a nice background to the flavors of vanilla, toasted oak, freshly brewed coffee, nuts, and English toffee.
Jack Daniel’s Black Label offers a quick, sweet finish. Nice oak notes, a hint of spices, and perhaps a touch of cedar mingle with a warm caramel finish that gives way to white pepper and walnuts.
