  • Intro:

    Distilled by Jack Daniel's, this is the eighth release of its Distillery Series, which features a rye whiskey aged in maple wood barrels, utilizing a high toast. Let's dive in!

  • Nose:

    Sweet and buttery on the nose, tons of fresh creamed corn, butterscotch and a light dab of vanilla bean. Sweet, not necessarily the most complex, but plenty enticing.

  • Taste:

    Oddly rich on the palate, a prickle of heat and a fat dab of peanut brittle, honey roasted peanuts and caramel corn. Pleasant viscosity on the palate.

  • Finish:

    Short finish, sweet and nutty with a prickle of heat, there's a touch of butterscotch and honey roasted peanuts. The rye spice is mostly glossed over here, though the toast brings some additional sweetness.

  • Overall:

    Overall, this is sweet and pleasant. It's not a raucous rye, and it's not a toasted nightmare, both of which are facets that work towards the success of this pour. It won't top the charts, but it's impossible not to enjoy neat either.
