Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel Rye Whiskey

Feb 10, 2016

Category: Vices

Just this month the iconic and storied Jack Daniel’s added its first new grain recipe in over 100 years. The release of this new Single Barrel Rye feels equal parts historic and common sense – with Americans spending more and more on rye ($106 million on rye in 2014 as opposed to $15 million in 2009).

Jack Daniel’s new rye whiskey is distilled from 70% rye, 18% corn, and 12% malted barley grain bill and uses the same cave spring water, yeast, and charcoal mellowing process as they do with their flagship Tennessee Whiskey. The whiskey opens up with a taste of vanilla and sugars balanced with the charred barrel, has middle notes of apple and stone-fruit, and finishes with baking spice flavors with an aftertaste that’s both bold and creamy. This whiskey is 94 proof, comes in a 750 ml bottle and retails for anywhere between $50 and $60. [Purchase]
