The Jack Daniel Distillery just released its new, 12-Year-Old Tennessee Whiskey along with Batch 2 of its 10-Year-Old.
A statement from the distiller noted that these limited whiskeys are the latest in Jack Daniel’s Aged Series, which is an annual release of age-stated expressions that celebrate the brand’s heritage.
Chris Fletcher, Jack Daniel’s master distiller, said, “We released our first age-stated whiskey since the early 1900s in this series about a year ago and were thrilled with the overwhelmingly positive response. We know there’s a lot of excitement for our Aged Series, and we can’t wait to share Batch 2 of our 10-Year-Old Tennessee Whiskey along with the first release of our 12-Year-Old Tennessee Whiskey.”
His distiller’s notes show Jack Daniel’s 12-Year-Old has sweet and creamy notes of pipe tobacco, seasoned oak, and butterscotch, while Jack Daniel’s 10-Year-Old Batch 2 is oak forward with layers of dark fruit and bittersweet cocoa.
Interestingly, the grain bills for both expressions are 80% corn, 12% malted barley, and 8% rye and both are charcoal mellowed before aging in new, toasted and charred American white oak barrels.
Jack Daniel’s 12-Year-Old Tennessee Whiskey clocks in at 107 proof (53.5% ABV) and sells for $80 for a 700mL bottle. The 10-Year-Old Batch 2 is bottled at 97 proof (48.5% ABV) and sells for $70. Both are now available.
