Jack Daniel’s recently announced its first-ever barrel strength offering within the coveted Single Barrel Collection, dubbed Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel Barrel Proof.
Set for release in August, Barrel Proof ranges from 125 to 140 proof, and is crafted using the same cave spring water from the Jack Daniel’s Hollow, a proprietary yeast and charcoal-mellowing process that’s been used in the distillery’s nearly 150-year-old recipe.
From there, the liquid enters a charred White American Oak barrel, forged within Jack Daniel’s very own cooperage and set to age in the upper regions of the barrelhouse. In this resting place, the whiskey is exposed to the extreme temperature variations that a Lynchburg, Tennessee season brings. The interaction of the whiskey, the wood and the environment creates nuances from barrel to barrel to bring out distinct flavor profiles that transcend the expected to become “Barrel Proof.”
Barrel Proof takes the flavor range of sweet vanilla and toasted oak that has become the Jack Daniel’s trademark to a whole new level.
Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel Barrel Proof will be available nationwide beginning August 2015, priced at $65 USD per 750ml.
