Review #21 Jack Daniel's Single Barrel Select

Updated: Feb 18, 2021

Distillery: Jack Daniels Distillery

Proof: 94

Age: Between 4-7 years

Mashbill: 80% Corn, 12% Malted Barley, 8% Rye

BACKGROUND: Although Jack Daniels is not labeled as a bourbon, Jack Daniels Single Barrel does meet the bourbon classifications of being at least 2 years old, at least 51% corn, and aged in new charred oak barrels. Jack Daniels Single Barrel is made by taking normal barrels of Jack Daniels and putting them through a process called the Lincoln County Press after distillation which is where the whiskey is poured through charcoal that is made by burning maple wood. The whiskey is then barreled in new charred oak barrels and ages for 4-7 years.

NOSE: Toasted Oak, banana, ethanol, and some light vanilla. Simple and delightful (21/25)

PALATE: A toasted caramel flavor that comes with slight hints of banana. Very smooth, but has a lighter mouthfeel of a lower proof whiskeys. (33/40)

FINISH: Fairly simple finish with hints of pepper, charred oak, vanilla, and brown sugar. Short finish but very tasteful (21/25)

VALUE: Jack Daniels Single Barrel has an SRP of $48 which is a great price! This is well worth a purchase, especially if you're a fan of Jack Daniel's. (8/10)

Overall: 83/100

FINAL THOUGHTS: Jack Daniels Single Barrel is a readily available whiskey that is delicious and will hold a permanent spot in our whiskey collection.
