A blend of three, Bottled-In-Bond, whiskeys, Jack Daniel's Triple Mash features American Whiskey, Rye and Malted Whiskey and blends them together. It's bottled at 50% ABV as all things Bonded must be and is available countrywide for around $30. This is a definite reach for Jack Daniels, well outside their typically wheelhouse, and it's piqued the interest and excitement of whiskey fans everywhere - myself included. Let's dive in.
Sweet cream, cake batter, raisin bread, honey and sweet plum. Lovely and complex on the nose, soft and inviting, sweet and savory.
Rich on the palate. Not wildly viscous, but plenty going on. Rising bread, sweet buttered biscuits, honey and toffee. A touch of pepper and clove, there's also definitely some malt character as well. Maple, plum and a touch of cherry on the back palate.
Long finish, this is where the malt shines. Long and complex, there's loads of red fruits, brown sugar, fresh pastries and satisfying baking spice.
Overall, if this is Jack Daniels first spotlight on their malt distillate, the world better be ready. This is available, affordable, and possible the most interesting and delicious off-the-shelf Jack Daniel's second to perhaps its Barrel Proof. It's worth a snag for sure.
