Jack Daniel's Single Barrel Heritage Barrel, 50%
Price: $65 ● Issue: Winter 2018 ● Reviewer: Jeffery Lindenmuth
Bright, clean, and fruity, with spearmint and oak, this smells of chewy marmalade, with pretty wildflower, waxy crayon, and solvent notes adding intrigue. On the palate the fruit feels dense—dried apricot and a cardboard box of prunes—before veering toward citrus and Peanut Chews. The generous finish lingers with bitter orange peel, vanilla, and sweet creamed corn. Complex, fresh, and immensely likable.
