Known for its signature whiskey that’s half of a one-two punch cocktail, Jack Daniel’s is always a reliable spirit for happy hour. The American whiskey brand typically doesn’t stray too far away from its tried-and-true formula. However, they are exercising their creativity with variants called the Tennessee Tasters’ Selection series.
This limited release of experimental whiskeys has been selected by the distillery’s expert tasting team to bring us more varied flavor profiles. Each of the variants will be sold exclusively at the Jack Daniel’s distillery and in select Tennessee liquor stores. There will be around 24,000 bottles for each new flavor followed by limited offerings every few months. Details for three of the offerings are available. The High Angel’s Share Barrels offer a distinct and deep concentration of flavors at 107-proof. The Smoked Hickory Finish bottle — an absolutely perfect campfire whiskey — is a matured whiskey finished with charred hickory staves at 100-proof. And, the Reunion Barrel is a 90-proof whiskey finished in wine barrels. High Angel’s Share Barrels and Smoked Hickory Finish will be available in October and Reunion Barrel will hit select shelves in 2019.
