Jack Daniel’s Unaged Rye is the first distillate since Prohibition that the company has used a new grain recipe and the first ever where the lead grain has been rye. Bottled at 80 proof and available in limited release it is a must for those who enjoy great “White Dog” or raw distillate.

Tasting Notes

"The first smell is as you might expect, nice and raw, smells like walking into a still house and doesn’t disappoint. Spicy up front and sweetens like raw sorghum syrup from the Amish countryside. An interesting character is the mouth feel; it is almost granular in texture, enticing your tongue to massage the roof of your mouth, which is why I gave the oily section a higher grade. Jack proves to be one of the better unaged ryes in a category growing in popularity across the country. For the cocktailer, look to use this as the base spirit instead when updating classic gin cocktails and in Daisies like the Sidecar. "
