Country: USA

Region: Tennessee

Type: Rye Whiskey

Bottler: Distiller

ABV: 50%

Score: 92 Points

This bottled-in-bond Rye replaces the original Jack Daniel’s Rye whiskey in the range, and the initial batch came from the Spring 2016 distilling season. The nose has notes of toasted oak, baking spices, and dried fruits. The taste is syrupy-thick with notes of cinnamon, clove, and allspice that fade to reveal dried fruits, charred oak, honey, and vanilla. The finish is long with subtle spices and hints of peaches and red apples. (September, 2023)
