Review: Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Fire

Posted by Arctic Wolf on September 12, 2018

Jack Daniel’s is produced in Lynchburg, Tennessee, by the Jack Daniel Distillery (currently owned by the Brown-Forman Corporation). The flagship brand Jack Daniels Old No. 7 is produced in much the same manner as bourbon, from a corn heavy mash and aged in new charred white oak barrels. However, the Jack Daniel’s distillery has always resisted the use of the bourbon classification, and instead prefers to label their spirit as Tennessee Sour Mash Whiskey. In the advertising and upon their website, the company highlights the fact that Jack Daniels Whiskey undergoes a filtering process (not typically used by bourbon producers) known as the The Lincoln County Process. This Process involves filtering the whiskey through a column of charcoal (or steeping the whiskey in charcoal chips) to remove unwanted flavours and contaminants prior to cask aging. The Jack Daniel’s Distillery produces its own charcoal pellets for the Lincoln County Process from sugar maple timbers. These charcoal pellets are packed into 10-foot (3.0 m) vats, where they are used to remove the impurities from the distilled Jack Daniel’s whiskey.

Jack Daniels Tennessee Fire represents a blending of Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey with a what the company calls ‘a red-hot cinnamon liqueur’.

Here is a link to my review:

Review: Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Fire

“… The spiced whiskey lives up to its billing bringing oodles of cinnamon heat across the palate. There is so much heat in fact that only a few nuances of flavour from the underlying whisky poke through. I wouldn’t sip this one, but I certainly understand the appeal for those who love spicy heat …”

Please enjoy my review, and my cocktail suggestion inspired by Sly and the Family Stone, Hot Fun in the Summertime.

Chimo!

Review: Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel Select

Posted by Arctic Wolf on September 5, 2018

Jack Daniel’s is produced in Lynchburg, Tennessee, by the Jack Daniel Distillery (currently owned by the Brown-Forman Corporation). The flagship brand Jack Daniels Old No. 7 is produced in much the same manner as bourbon, from a corn heavy mash and aged in new charred white oak barrels.

These charcoal pellets are packed into 10-foot (3.0 m) vats, where they are used to remove the impurities from the distilled Jack Daniel’s whiskey.

Each bottle of Jack Daniels Single Barrel Select is drawn from a single barrel of whisky with the barrel number marked upon the label. The company does not offer an age statement but apparently only the whiskey from only one in a hundred barrels is deemed to have the suitable characteristics for the brand.

Here is a link to my review:

Review: Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel Select

“… As the big cedar notes at the front give way, the dram becomes more nuanced. There is still a touch of sharpness warning me that the whiskey is going to have a bit of a kick …”

Please enjoy my review which concludes with a new cocktail suggestion, the Tempest.

Chimo!

Review: Gentleman Jack

Posted by Arctic Wolf on August 29, 2018

These charcoal pellets are packed into 10-foot (3.0 m) vats, where they are used to remove the impurities from the distilled Jack Daniel’s whiskey.

Gentleman Jack apparently undergoes the filtration process a second time as according to the Jack Daniel’s Website the whisky is Double Mellowed for Exceptional Smoothness.

Here is a link to my review:

Review: Gentleman Jack

“… Gentleman Jack displays more nuance and structure on the nose than Jack Daniel’s No. 7. The double mellowing certainly has given us  reward. There is a hint but only a hint of the Jack Daniel’s No. 7 ‘punky’ quality and also perhaps just a touch of that Jack Daniel’s fire …”

Please enjoy my review which concludes with a serving suggestion, an Old Fashioned Cocktail.

Chimo!

Jack Daniels Tennessee Honey represents a blending of Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey and a unique honey liqueur produced by Jack Daniel’s. This liqueur is apparently made from real honey.

Here is a link to my review:

Review: Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Honey

“… as the name implies this spirit features a penetrating aroma of the sweet sticky honey. Light whiskey smells struggle to be noticed and there is perhaps a touch of astringency in the air …”

Please enjoy my review and the cocktail suggestions at the conclusion, Tennessee Sunshine.

Chimo!

Review: Jack Daniel’s (Old No. 7 Tennessee Whiskey)

Posted by Arctic Wolf on May 4, 2014

JD No 7Jack Daniel’s Old No. 7 is produced in Lynchburg, Tennessee, by the Jack Daniel Distillery (currently owned by the Brown-Forman Corporation). Interestingly enough, the Jack Daniel’s Distillery is located in Moore County which has remained dry dating back to the passing of the state’s prohibition laws in the early 20th century. Even though prohibition ended federally in 1933 when the Eighteenth Amendment was repealed, the Tennessee State prohibition laws have remained in effect; and hence, all counties in the state remained dry after prohibition ended. Counties may individually repeal the local state law by passing a “local option” referendum; however, Moore County has not done so. This has given rise to the curious situation in which the county which produces the best-selling American Whiskey in the world does not allow this whiskey to be sold in the stores or the restaurants within its own boundaries.

However, the Jack Daniel’s distillery has always resisted the use of the bourbon classification, and instead prefers to label their spirit as Tennessee Sour Mash Whiskey.

You may read my full review of the World’s best-selling American Whiskey by clicking on the following review excerpt:

Review: Jack Daniel’s (Old No. 7 Tennessee Whiskey)

“… The initial nose was full of corn syrup, the spiciness of wood sap, and a very apparent dankness which reminded me of damp autumn leaves. The wood sap reminded me of both fresh-cut oak and cedar logs, and some vanilla accents seemed to be wrapped up in the corn and the wood spices. There was also an indistinct a clay-like earthiness in the breezes above the glass with perhaps a touch of cigarette smoke as well …”

I included a nice recipe for your enjoyment at the conclusion of the review, the Lynchburg Slammer. Please enjoy the review and the suggested cocktail, Cheers!
