Jack Daniel's Old No. 7
Jack Daniel's // Tennessee, USA
Old No. 7 (sometimes referred to as Black Label or just Jack) is made from a mash bill of 80% corn, 12% barley, and 8% rye. Limestone-filtered water and a starter mash (aka sour mash) from previous batches are added for fermentation to allow for consistency. After a six-day fermentation, the mash is distilled to 140 proof. The new-make whiskey is then charcoal-mellowed through 10 feet of maple charcoal prior to aging. Aged at least four years in new, charred American oak barrels which the distillery makes itself.

"Nose shows banana, vanilla, yeast and a strong corn profile. Palate is more of the same: strong banana, corn, char from the barrel and some heat even at 80 proof. Finish is long and full of candy corn, more tropical fruit and a little heat."
