Jack Daniel’s Latest Release is its Highest Proofed Whiskey Ever
On Tuesday, Jack Daniel’s announced the release of its 2021 Single Barrel Special Release, Coy Hill High Proof. Ranging from 137.4 to 148.3 proof, the whiskey is Jack’s highest-ABV release yet.
Coy Hill High Proof is made from Jack Daniel’s classic 80% corn, 12% malted barley and 8% rye mash bill. The whiskey was then put through 10 feet of sugar maple charcoal before entering its barrels.
The limited-edition Coy Hill High Proof bottle will be released this month, available at a suggested retail price of $70 for a 750-milliliter bottle.
“The Coy Hill High Proof is all about pushing the limit for single barrel maturation to create one of our boldest, most innovative whiskeys we have ever released,” said Master Distiller Chris Fletcher in a news release. “It highlights one of the unique attributes of the Jack Daniel Distillery – the dry air of the highest floors of the barrel houses – and the amazing impact it has on whiskey making.”
Nose: Seared oak and dark brown sugar
Taste: Bold baking spices
Finish: Lingering finish of toffee, smoke and rich leather
Last month, Jack Daniels was named the most valuable spirits brand in the world on Interbrand’s “Best Global Brands” list.
