Golden amber in colour. On the nose this shows a lifted spicy character with notes of tea and a hint of peppermint. Dry clean palate with the light-bodied, gentle bite spice and pepper softened by a touch of honey.
A balanced, rich, fruity nose. Notes of spices and chocolate, toffee and vanilla. On the palate there are tart stone fruits, prunes, spices, morello cherries, cocoa and vanilla, finishes with notes of oak, chocolate and butterscotch.
The Jack Daniel's range grew in 2017 with the introduction of their Tennessee Rye whiskey - the first whiskey from the distillery with a mash-bill that different from the classic Tennessee Whiskey since Prohibition! It features a core of 70% rye, supported by 18% corn and 12% malted barley, and enjoys the same charcoal filtration as their other expressions.
Reddish burnt orange. Rich vanilla and chocolate caramel, complex and mature soft fruit medley with hints of citrus and traces of malt; adding water, fruit notes explode into mature oak. Complex, sharp, dry chocolate-cocoa swings into sweet, sappy oak flavours, with grain and hay notes, hints of fruit linger in the background. The finish is sweet, light then quickly drying.
