Jack Daniels – Single Barrel Select

While not officially labelled bourbon, most of Jack Daniel’s whiskeys meet the criteria required to be called bourbon. After distillation, Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey undergoes what is referred to as the ‘Lincoln County Process. Jack Daniel’s allows its whiskey to drip for six days in 10-foot vats, passing through charcoal that was made by burning maple wood that had been impregnated with 140 proof Jack Daniel’s whiskey, before being put in new charred oak barrels and aged for an estimated 4-7 years. Jack Daniel’s pulls barrels from the upper levels of the rickhouse for their single barrel bottlings.

Bottled at 94-proof, Mashbill: 80% Corn, 12% Malted Barley, 8% Rye, Single Barrel Select layers subtle notes of caramel and spice with bright fruit notes and sweet aromatics for a Tennessee Whiskey with one-of-a-kind flavor.

This has always ranked as one of my favorite whiskeys. I also like the price point of $45 to $50.
