As part of Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Tasters’ Selection Series, the brand has released its sixth and seventh experimental whiskeys: Jamaican Allspice and 14E19 “Twin” Blend.
Limited to approximately 24,000 bottles for each release, the whiskeys are introduced several times a year after being carefully chosen by Jack Daniel’s Master Tasters to deliver unique and diverse experiences.
For the Jamaican Allspice, available now, Jack Daniel’s takes it’s Old No. 7 Tennessee Whiskey and finishes it for 180 days with toasted Jamaican allspice wood to create a nose of fruit, smoke, and sweet tobacco. Selected by Master Taster Melvin Keebler and bottled at 100 proof, the whiskey features tastes of dark spice and clove with a long and bold finish.
The 14E19 “Twin” Blend, available early 2021, gets its name from the entry date of 20 barrels of Tennessee Whiskey and 30 barrels of Tennessee Rye that entered the barrelhouses on May 19, 2014. The 50 barrels were selected by Master Taster Jessica Hartline and blended to produce a flavorful and complex 107 proof whiskey with complementing spice and floral accents.
The bottles reflect sample bottles used daily by Jack Daniel’s Master Tasters and include a customized label, distillery name embossment on the front, and “Taster Sampler Bottle” mark on the back of the glass structure.
“Our newest additions to the Tennessee Tasters’ series represent the creativity and craftsmanship that Mr. Jack began with more than 150 years ago,” said Master Distiller Chris Fletcher. “Our Master Tasters embodied that spirit with these bottles by complementing the character of our classic Tennessee Whiskey with rare woods for the Jamaican Allspice bottle and hand-selected barrels of Tennessee Rye for the Twin Blend. We can’t wait for our friends to try them.”
Each Tennessee Tasters’ Selection release is sold in 375-ml bottles for $39.99 and available exclusively at the Jack Daniel Distillery and select stores across Tennessee.
