Jack Daniel's Triple Mash
Blended American Whiskey — Tennessee, USA
Tasted June 22, 2022
Nose: Banana nut, chocolate cherry sugars, lemon grass. Loaded with banana cola nut on the front side and some familiar JD brown sugars on the way out, this is actually quite a concoction.. other than the really fantastic single barrel JD rye, nothing from JD comes close to the triple mash. This is of course technically a rye, as it's 60% rye mash, the remainder of corn and malt is probably really the key, as it just doesn't stand out as a rye, but a sweet and tasty jumble of rye and whiskey. Outside of the traditional JD purists, I can't imagine anyone not finding this a better or at least, far more interesting whiskey than what JD traditionally offers. It's much more enticing than the new, straight bonded JD, and represents a real continuation and improvement in the JD rye lineup. Either someone at JD is looking ahead and see's a future of rye and mash blends or they simply rolled the dice and got lucky, no matter props to JD for producing something that the average bourbon muckaluck should be happy to have in hand, a new product from a familiar name, that isn't short changed on age or hastily thrown together. Well done Jack Daniels Distillery. Cheers!
