Whiskey Wednesday: Jack Daniel’s Rye Whiskey
Sep201706

Jack Daniel’s, makers of the iconic Tennessee straight whiskey you’ve probably sipped on more than once in your life, is finally releasing a readily available and affordable rye whiskey that you’ll be able to add to your collection later this year. Jack Daniel’s rye has a mash bill that’s 70 percent rye, 18 percent corn and 12 percent malted barley that, like other whiskies in their portfolio, has been charcoal mellowed and matured in new American oak barrels created by the brand’s own coopers. Official tasting notes from the distillery mention “this well-rounded rye whiskey glows with accents of caramel and dry baking spice followed by a warm, peppery rye character finish on the back end.” Jack Daniel’s Rye Whiskey is slated for release in October with an estimated price tag around $27. If it drinks anything like it’s single barrel rye big brother it’s going to be one heck of value at only half the price.
