Excerpt: While quite tasty, the palate doesn't quite live up to the exceptional qualities of the nose which will keep this out of the perfect score territory I think. My last sip is a bittersweet farewell to a very enjoyable pour. It carries molasses, hay, pepper and hints of tobacco.

Distilled by Jack Daniel's and bottled after 10 years of aging, this bottling is the oldest spirit released so far from the distillery - quite the milestone.
Sweet buttercream, honey roasted peanuts, banana split, apple pie, cinnamon candies and big big tobacco. Decadent, complex, strong oak character. Winner.
Thin to medium palate, a good deal of oak, toffee, some banana cream pie. The nose is intoxicating, the palate is less than stellar, but still very pleasant. I hesitate to call it simple, but it's straightforward.
Medium finish, strong oak notes, toffee, a big dollop of cocoa which is intriguing.
I really want to love this release, I especially admire seeing Jack Daniel's bring in more oak integration, I just think it suffers at the relatively low proof.
