"Jack Daniel's foray into a Tennessee-style rye -- mellowed through charcoal prior to barreling -- produces an enjoyably interesting addition to the rye category. It's lightly spicy with well-balanced notes of vanilla, oak, and a hint of smoke. Bottling at 90-proof is a good decision, ensuring that the whiskey retains its character. Perhaps a bit light to stand up in cocktails, it's probably best sipped neat or over a cube or two of ice."
