  • Publication: Amongst the Whiskey
  • 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.

  • Excerpt: The finish is of moderate length and is somewhat savory with a little smoke, toffee, and fruity note. Serve it with a large rock for maximum effect.

  • Publication: The Bourbon Culture
  • Excerpt: I didn’t experience anything new or exciting but the notes it did deliver were well-balanced, deeply layered and had a maturity that you could taste.

  • Excerpt: The bones of Old No. 7 are still there, however, alongside a lot of fruit that emerges from the glass — applesauce, namely, studded with cloves.

  • Publication: Whiskey Wash
  • Excerpt: It’s high proof but not hot, it’s soft, rolls over the tongue, and the finish has a lot to say. This small town in Tennessee makes a big impact once again

  • Publication: Rob Report
  • Excerpt: The 10-year-old is a lovely whiskey, recognizably Jack Daniel’s as Fletcher intended, but with much more pronounced oak, fruit and tannin notes.

  • Excerpt: 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.

Raided Score is a conversion from an external site's score, to our in house uniform scoring system. Please see the FAQ for more.

  • Intro:

    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.

  • Nose:

    Sweet buttercream, honey roasted peanuts, banana split, apple pie, cinnamon candies and big big tobacco. Decadent, complex, strong oak character. Winner.

  • Taste:

    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.

  • Finish:

    Medium finish, strong oak notes, toffee, a big dollop of cocoa which is intriguing.

  • Overall:

    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.

  • Score:

    5
