Review #497. Jack Daniels Single Barrel Barrel Proof 5 8 2016

Review #497 | /r/Bourbon Review #282 – Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel Barrel Proof

The Schtick: This is the second expression from this line that I am reviewing. While barrel deviation is higher than average in this product line, it is a well priced barrel proofer of Brown-Forman distillate.


Distiller: Jack Daniels

Bottler: Jack Daniels

ABV: 67.05% ABV

Age: NAS

Bottled: 5/8/2016

Rick: 3, 16-3148

Source: Bottle, Purchased


Nose: Sweet bananas foster. Caramel, honey roasted peants, toffee and brown sugar. Nutty, funky, sweet banana dessert.

Taste: Thick and rich with a really assertive honey roasted peanut profile. Bananas are here also, with some heat, molasses, vanilla and toffee. There’s some really nice pepper and a bit of allspice which helps round out the dessert centered profile.

Finish: Long, but real hot. Sweet and oaky, but not dry. Bananas foster and honey roasted peanuts dominate the finish but balance very well with the oak.

Overall: This is a great barrel. It’s sweet, fruity and spicy. It’s hot, but the proof is bananas.

Thanks for reading!
