Jack Daniel's Tennessee Tasters' Selection Reunion Barrel #1
Jack Daniel's // Tennessee, USA
Reunion Barrel #1 is made by finishing a whiskey in a barrel which was used to age a Tennessee wine. That wine barrel first aged Jack Daniel's whiskey, hence the name. This is one of the first bottles in the Jack Daniel's Tennessee Tasters' Selection, a limited edition experimental series with bottles chosen by Jack Daniel's own master tasters. This bottling was selected by master distiller Jeff Arnett. Around 24,000 375ml sized bottles were produced. Availability limited to the distillery and select Tennessee retailers from the end of October 2018.
TennesseeProduced in Tennessee; mash grain at least 51% corn; aged in new, charred oak barrels; filtered through maple charcoal prior to aging.
Cask Typefinished in ex-wine barrels
"The nose has the standard char smoke with vanilla along with the banana notes commonly found in Old No. 7. But crushed berries join the fruit aromas here, but only faintly. The whiskey is soft on the palate with a moderate fullness. The finish is tangy and shows more bitter notes like leather and oak. The wine barrel brings just a bit of sweetness that rounds the tannins from the oak, but would have liked to have seen even more wine influence on the taste. "
