Review #1019 – Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel Barrel Proof Bourbon, Woodman’s Selection

Review #1019 | Bourbon Review #528 – Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel Barrel Proof, Woodman’s Selection

The Schtick: This is a single barrel, barrel proof release of Brown-Forman distillate produced for the Jack Daniel’s line of expressions. This particular barrel was selected for Woodman’s Market, a local chain here in Wisconsin.

Distiller: Brown-Forman

Bottler: Brown-Forman

ABV: 65.9% ABV

Age: NAS

Nose: Honey, graham cracker, waffle cone. Peanuts. Bananas. Oak and cocoa. The banana is notably present here, but a lot of the other notes are interesting and new – like the waffle cone.

Taste: Sweet and total banana bomb. Laffy taffy. Some heat. Rich and viscous though. Oaky, clove, lots of baking spice.

Finish: Long but really really hot. Bananas, cocoa, cloves, pipe tobacco, oak.

Overall: Great also but the heat is definitely more imposing than it should be. This can’t really tango with the Kenwood I recently reviewed. While this was less a favorite, I don’t regret buying it, as these are usually pretty interesting. I don’t know if things are changing for Jack Daniel’s, or not, but I’m noticing in the last year or so that I am finding far less bad barrels of the single barrel barrel proof that I used to. Seems like they’re really trying to dial it in.

Thanks for reading!
