The Jack Daniel distillery in Tennessee, in its first super premium line extension in a quarter of a century, has unveiled two new Bottled-in-Bond American whiskeys. They emerge as the first two permanent expressions in the brand’s new Bonded Series.
The new Jack Daniel’s Bonded Tennessee Whiskey and Jack Daniel’s Triple Mash Blended Straight Whiskey offerings, according to those behind them, are bottled at 100 proof (50% ABV). They sport packaging inspired by the original design of the 1895 Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey bottle.
“The Jack Daniel Distillery has been making exceptional American whiskey to the highest standards for generations, before and after the Bottled in Bond Act, dating back to the days of Mr. Jack himself,” said Chris Fletcher, Jack Daniel’s Master Distiller, in a prepared statement. “Jack Daniel’s Bonded and Triple Mash are a nod to our heritage with a touch of innovation and craftsmanship. These whiskeys are another opportunity for both our friends and new drinkers to explore and discover everything Jack Daniel’s has to offer.”
Specifics of each are as follows, based upon information from the distillery:
Jack Daniel’s Bonded Tennessee Whiskey
- Jack Daniel’s Bonded is Jack’s time-honored recipe of 80% corn, 12% malted barley, and 8% rye. Barrels were hand selected for their unique and particular characteristics of deeper color, flavor, and aroma, which bring a darker, richer, and more oak-forward character to Jack Daniel’s Bonded.
- It is a big, bold Tennessee Whiskey at 100 proof with layered notes of caramel, rich oak, and spice giving way to a pleasantly lingering finish.
Jack Daniel’s Triple Mash Blended Straight Whiskey
- Jack Daniel’s Triple Mash is a blend of three straight Bottled-In-Bond whiskeys – 60% Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Rye, 20% Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey and 20% Jack Daniel’s American Malt. Each expression is distilled in Lynchburg, Tennessee, in the same distilling season, aged to the stipulations of the Bottled in Bond Act, then blended and bottled at 100 proof. It’s a remarkable whiskey that can only be crafted by a complete distillery like Jack Daniel’s.
- Jack Daniel’s Triple Mash has pleasant notes of honey, malt, and soft oak leading to a long lasting well-rounded finish.
Jack Daniel’s Bonded and Triple Mash will be available across the US beginning this month, with international markets to follow later in 2022. They will initially be available in 700mL bottles for suggested retail prices of $29.99 and $32.99 respectively.
