New Limited Edition Showcase Drink. Distillery Series Selection #12
Jack Daniel’s has shared Distillery Series Selection #12, a Straight Tennessee Whiskey Finished in Oloroso Sherry Casks. The new drink is the latest in the distillery’s line of experimental and innovative whiskeys. Featuring the brand’s classic Tennessee Whiskey there’s an additional layer of complexity that’s perfect for the season.
Jack Daniel’s Distillery Series is produced in limited quantities and available only in Tennessee. The latest expression is like all Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskeys, made with a grain bill of 80% corn, 12% malted barley, and 8% rye and is charcoal mellowed before entering into new, charred American white oak barrels. Once fully matured, the whiskey was then finished in Oloroso Sherry casks for an additional three years.
Speaking on Dack Daniel’s Distillery Series Selection #12 Master Distiller Chris Fletcher said:
“We first used Oloroso Sherry Casks with our American Single Malt, and it was only natural to continue experimenting with them to craft innovations that only Jack Daniel’s could.
What resulted was something completely unique that further elevates the complexity of Old No. 7 but maintains a balanced profile. We can’t wait for our friends to try what we believe is the perfect sip for the season.”
With an aroma of sweet citrus, which builds to a taste of rich baking spices, nutmeg and caramel, the straight Tennessee Whiskey is crowned with a lingering finish of notes of red fruit, achieved through maturation in the Sherry casks.
Selected by Whiskey Taster Randall Fanning, who recently retired after nearly 50 years with the brand, Jack Daniel’s Distillery Series Selection #12 Straight Tennessee Whiskey Finished in Oloroso Sherry Casks is bottled at 90 proof (45% abv) and will be available in select stores in Tennessee and at the White Rabbit Bottle Shop at the Jack Daniel Distillery beginning December 2 in 375ml bottles with a suggested retail price of $41.99.
