Distilled by Jack Daniels, this Is the 9th release of the Jack Daniel's Distillery Series, released in July of 2022. It's a rye whiskey finished in toasted oak barrels featuring a high toast. Let's dive in!
Wonderfully creamy, packed with cocoa and creme brulee, honey and cocoa, pepper and that distinctive honey roasted peanut note.
Moderate mouthfeel, a good deal of char, rye bite, light herbal spice and some pepper and clove. Spicy and punchy.
Short to medium finish, spicy and sharp, pleasant but a pour for rye lovers and dedicated ones at that.
Overall, this is an interesting, scrappy rye. For rye lovers, this will be a hit. For those with prejudice or uncertainty, the maple finish will be the victor instead. It's very good whiskey, but punchy as hell and drinkers should be expecting it as they approach the glass.
