Jack Daniel's Tennessee Tasters' Selection Hickory Smoked, 50%

Price: $40/375ml Issue: Spring 2019 Reviewer: Jeffery Lindenmuth

Instantly evokes buttered pancakes drowning in maple syrup, but on closer inspection there is a lot of depth here, with a distinct charred-hickory note that suggests smoked meat or back bacon. Flavors slowly steer closer to the Jack profile, with tropical fruit, grape soda, and Pez candies on the finish lingering with a note of spent tobacco pipe.
