Jack Daniels Single Barrel, 45%

Jack Daniels.

It doesn’t really need an introduction.

The iconic biggest selling whiskey brand in America has plenty of fans.

I wouldn’t be one of them.

The caramel forward nose, rather robust mouth feel with mere hints of wood & spice, leaves me nonplussed.

After one – I wouldn’t be tempted for more.

But moving up the range a little does find me something I have gone back to on a number of occasions.

Jack Daniels Single Barrel is an altogether far more enjoyable experience.

The caramel isn’t the only note in town.

There’s vanilla, wood and an engaging spiciness.

The robust character is still there – but at 45% it delivers a far more extensive array of flavours that dance off the palate. Cinnamon & nutmeg combine with sweet vanilla & oakiness.

These gently fade away leaving that wonderful dry mouth feel I enjoy.

So when I spotted this attractive miniature in The Old Stand recently – I was tempted for more.

And I’m glad I did.
