The nose is quite light and smooth with plenty of sweetness. There are hints of dry spice and oily nuts, a touch of smoke. The palate is quite smooth and soft with notes of banana milkshake, a mixed nut note, a touch of caramel with crème anglaise. The finish is quite sweet with a little cereal sweetness and toasty oak.
Filtered through maple charcoal in large wooden vats prior to aging. OK, that's the technical stuff to one side, tastes great with cola and ice. Rock n Roll!
Of all the US whiskey brands, Jack Daniel’s has attained a decidedly cult-like status, there is a massive market for brand memorabilia and the Old Time No.7 Brand is a regular on the back bar of almost every bar in the world. The exact date of Jasper Newton ‘Jack’ Daniel’s birth is unknown for his birth records were destroyed in a courthouse fire. Varying sources suggest 1846 and the brand themselves maintain it was in September of 1850. There is similar doubt as to the founding of the distillery though it was certainly at some stage between 1860 and 1880, it was located in Lynchburg, Tennessee. Jack had Welsh and Scottish blood and was one of thirteen children. He employed the services of his nephew, the Steinbeckian sounding Lem Motlow. Lem was adept at mathematics and ran the company bookkeeping.
Aged four to six years, the distinctive pungent nose and powerful flavour of Jack Daniel's have made it a favourite around the world; and although some find it too assertive, there can be no denying its quality. Mr.Daniel's promise that 'Every day we make it, we'll make it the best we can' is perpetuated to this day with an almost religious devotion.
A large bottle of Jack Daniel's Old Time Number 7 Brand. This undergoes a filtration through sugar maple charcoal (known as the Lincoln County Process). It is this key process which separates Tennessee whiskey from bourbon and other American whiskey.
Jack Daniels old No.7 is the rock in the Jack Daniels range and one of the most popular whiskies in the world. It uses pure cave spring water and a unique sugar maple charcoal mellowing process perfected in 1866.
