Straight outta the green hills of Lynchburg, Tennessee.
Jack Daniel’s is as about as iconic as it gets when it comes to American whiskey, and now, they have something BIG in store. Harkening back to the days of old, the team at Jack is taking it all the way back to the 1800s.
The distillery announced the release of their 10-year-old Tennessee Whiskey, the brand’s first aged-stated whiskey in over a 100 years.
Master Jack Daniel’s Distiller Chris Fletcher is stoked for the new release:
“Over the last decade, we’ve been experimenting to craft a product that would properly honor the whiskey Jack Daniel was bottling at the end of the 1800’s.
All of us at the Jack Daniel Distillery are thrilled to release an age-stated whiskey for the first time in over 100 years to be enjoyed by all.
This product has been hand-crafted by our distillery team in Lynchburg over the last 10 summers all while keeping up with the growing demand for Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey around the world.
This 10-year-old whiskey celebrates our modern-day whiskey making, while also paying tribute to our founder and history. It is a special time for us all.”
The whiskey clocks in at 97 proof, which is a first for the brand, and features notes of dry fig and raisin laced with oak on the nose, warm butterscotch alongside soft fruit and smoke on the palate, and a long finish with sweet tobacco and spice.
The whiskey will go for $70 with a size of 750mL, and will hit shelves in the US somewhere in early September.
