Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel Barrel Proof Rye Whiskey is the newest member of the brand’s Single Barrel Collection.
A statement from the iconic whiskey maker notes that the Barrel Proof Rye is now available nationwide, and comes bottled straight from the barrel and offered at proof points ranging between 125 and 145.
The whiskey has a grain bill of 70% rye, 18% corn, and 12% malted barley and is charcoal mellowed then matured in new American white oak barrels.
The distiller noted that only specially selected barrels aged at the upper most floors of their barrel houses produce this whiskey, which features deeper colors and flavors within the Single Barrel Collection.
“The combination of our unique rye grain bill and barrel house locations make for a special rye whiskey that perfectly balances bold and smooth,” said Chris Fletcher, Jack Daniel’s master distiller. “We’ve offered our rye whiskey at barrel strength through special limited releases in the past, and the responses from the whiskey community have been overwhelmingly positive. Now we’re excited to have our Barrel Proof Rye as a permanent part of our whiskey offerings to give even more of our friends a chance to try this special expression.”
His distiller’s notes show that Jack Daniel’s Barrel Proof Rye has a complex aroma of caramel and toasted subtle fruit. Although every barrel is slightly different, he said, each offers an intensity and complexity with a peppery rye finish.
Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel Barrel Proof Rye has a suggested retail price of $59.99 per 750ml bottle.
