In a move that continues the recent expansion beyond Old No. 7, Jack Daniel’s just announced the launch of its new sherry-cask finished single malt.
For the first time in its storied history, the Jack Daniel Distillery is introducing a 100% malted barley grain bill with the new Jack Daniel’s Twice Barreled Special Release American Single Malt Finished in Oloroso Sherry Casks. The 2022 limited edition Special Release features American Single Malt Whiskey twice barreled and bottled straight from sherry casks at 106.1 – 107.8 proof.
Jack Daniel’s Twice Barreled Special Release American Single Malt begins with 100% malted barley that is ground, fermented and distilled in Lynchburg, Tennessee. The whiskey passes through Jack Daniel’s traditional charcoal mellowing process and is then matured in new, charred American white oak barrels for at least four years. It is then finished for an additional two years in the finest quality Spanish Oloroso sherry casks from the Antonio Paez Lobato Cooperage before bottling at cask proof.
said Chris Fletcher, Jack Daniel’s Master Distiller
“Our Special Release series highlights our ongoing innovations and exceptional whiskeys from the Jack Daniel Distillery, and I’m excited to share this expression as our team set out to craft an American Single Malt that’s uniquely Jack Daniel’s. The combination of maturing in oak barrels and finishing in sherry casks produces incredible complexity and provides a full-bodied and sophisticated whiskey experience. We’ve never crafted a whiskey like this in Lynchburg and can’t wait to share it with our friends.”
The Special Release American Single Malt Whiskey has an aroma of soft oak, fruit and cocoa. Flavors of caramel and vanilla are complemented by notes of chocolate-covered nuts and berries, with a subtle sherry finish.
Jack Daniel’s Twice Barreled Special Release American Single Malt will be available nationwide in limited quantities beginning in November at $70 for a 700 ml size.
