Member Ratings and Notes
Sku
 
Nose: Bananas

 

Palate: The banana nose hits very briefly on the palate and then dissipates, giving way to a general sweetness and the a bit of a metallic note and a touch of rye.

 

Finish: The finish is heavy on the rye spice, with minty rye notes, and a bit bitter.

N: A mix of sweet corn and wood. Has a slightly dry, almost white wine quality to it with some white pepper. Some cherry notes and light vanilla. Lightly influenced by cinnamon. A wet clay note provides some earthy balance 

 

P: Woody palate initially with some cherry sweetness above it, with a touch of toffee behind. Heat comes from nowhere and slowly builds. Wood builds with the heat, but it's pretty even-tempered and not bitter. Cinnamon and light pepper. Has a slightly earthy, wet clay note tagging along as well.

 

F: Corn sweetness, wood and cherry which dries relatively quickly and leaves some light wood traces, some root vegetable notes and a touch of wood again at the end.

 

An interesting profile that's less overtly sweet than most Jack Daniels I've had. Similar to the Single Barrel in ways, but a bit bitter by comparison. Teh earthy and cherry notes being in balance raise this up a notch for me.
