Price: $70 Issue: Winter 2021 Reviewer: David Fleming

This is Jack Daniel's first age-stated release in over a century, unveiled thissummer to great excitement. Does the whiskey itself live up to the fanfare? Ourverdict is that it most certainly does. Made from the same Jack Daniel's recipe used forthe core Old No. 7, this liquid has aged well, and taken on lively, dynamic dimensions.Sweet cherry notes and wood spice swirl around the nose and palate, integrating withbaking spice, brown sugar, candied orange, and melted butterscotch, all tempered byespresso and cedar chest. This will be an annual release, and the plan calls for it toreappear next summer.Number 4 in the 2021 Top 20
