  • Excerpt: The impact of that maple barrel is profound and, frankly, a bit too intense for everyday drinking, culminating in a whiskey that ends up dialed a bit too far to the sweet side of things for may tastes. That said, rabid Gentleman Jack fans may want to pay a bit closer attention to this release.

  • Excerpt: And while the maple notes were enjoyable, the wood notes dominate the pour and prevent other flavors from fully developing. The result is a relativity dry, tannic experience that left me wanting more.

  • Excerpt: It’s good overall but light, thin and really sweet. Right for the right kind of drinker, and makes for an easy "relaxing dram" - something light, flavorful, and doesn't require a lot of work to break down. No off putting notes.

  • Intro:

    Filtered twice, aged in American oak barrels and finished in maple barrels, Jack Daniel's No. 27 release is a limited edition priced around $80. It's worth noting here, orthogonal to the current maple syrup barrel finishes some producers are releasing, that Jack Daniel's is using barrels made from maple wood for finishing - not oak barrels that aged maple syrup for some period of time.

  • Nose:

    Sweet banana runts on the nose, maple candies and honey.

  • Taste:

    Thin palate but sweet and enjoyable. Honey roasted peanuts, banana foster and caramel.

  • Finish:

    Short unremarkable finish. Sweet honey, bananas and cream. Sort of wisps away - very quickly. Would not use for cocktailing.

  • Overall:

    It’s good overall but light, thin and really sweet. Right for the right kind of drinker, and makes for an easy "relaxing dram" - something light, flavorful, and doesn't require a lot of work to break down. No off putting notes.
