The Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel is a bourbon from Tennessee, where it was hand selected from the most promising casks
This Tennessee Whiskey is an excellent masterpiece from the Jack Daniel Distillery. The Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel has 50 % alcohol by volume and an intense, dark mahogany colour. Its smell is voluminous and powerful with aromas of vanilla, caramel, a bit zesty citrus and hints of oak. The body is full but relatively soft for its alcohol content, which is quite high. The mild taste offers flavours of oak, cedar and vanilla. It is sweet, has an elegant, tangy spiciness and shows just a very little bitterness. The finish lasts long and is composed of a subtle oak aroma, caramel, vanilla and some spices. Overall this bourbon Whiskey appears full and smooth without having a burning effect on the palate.
As other bourbons of the Jack Daniel Distillery, this Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel is produced by adding sour mash to the normal mash. The typically mash consist of 80 % maize, 12 % rye and 8 % barley. Every time a new fermentation process starts, a certain part of sour mash – the mash of a previous fermentation process – is added. Furthermore, another typical step of the production chain is applied on this Whiskey. It is the charcoal mellowing before the Whiskey is filled in casks. During this process, the spirit is dripping through a layer of sugar maple charcoal, which is three meter thick. As the name says, this method has a mellowing effect on the aromas and flavours. But the most important part of the manufacturing process begins after the time of maturing. The Master Taster of the Jack Daniel Distillery is hand selecting the best casks from different spots of the warehouse. A certain position can have a strong impact on the Whiskey. Thus, the Master Taster picks those casks that contain the most exquisite flavours and creates the unique character of the Jack Daniel’s Silver Select.
