I have been recently impressed with some of the limited expressions and Barrel Proof expression from Jack and it's really changed my opinion of this Distillery. In the past, seeing this one with the high price tag, it would have been an instant pass for me, however, today I decided why not. I was not dissapionted. As soon as it hits your pallette you know instantly this is a huge upgrade on the standard Jack single Barrel. Soft vanilla, toffee and a rich, creamy mouthfeel. It's so silky. Then you start to get a lovely old leather note with toasted oak and some must. Finish is long with a lovely tart cherry note to compliment the lingering oak. It's really a wonderful effort from Jack Daniels that warrants it's price tag. Based on these notes, it's obvious this one has a lot of age to it. Getting leather and oak notes that quickly in the profile tells me this one has some juice north of 12 years old. Great way to kick this long weekend off! Cheers my friends!

    @Scott_E My buddy has a bottle and he owes me a pour! The man happily raids my cabinet but hoardes his good stuff. He also says it's very good! Based on this I am pushing him for 2 oz at least

    @dubz480 Though it’s not warranted in price, in my opinion, the Sinatra blend is pretty good too.

    @Rick_M Don't get me wrong, I still think the Old No7 is toilet water and the standard single barrel is just ok and overpriced. However, they hit a grandslam with this one. Sometimes you just have to applaud and say well played

    Maybe someday I’ll take back all the bad things I’ve said about them. :)

    @dubz480 wow—I need to try a pour. The single barrel barrel proof changed my opinion of JD

  • dubz480

    @PBMichiganWolverine agreed. I killed a 1/2 bottle of that and loved it. This is one is a notch above even that. Really a great effort from Jack.

    Try the Single Barrel Barrel Proof from Jack. Was really impressive for $60.
