Jack Daniel's Heritage Whiskey for Christmas
Finding that perfect gift can be an ordeal in the Christmas rush. For the discerning drinker nothing is finer than Jack Daniel's, to be enjoyed over the festive season. Top notch Tennessee whiskey with a heritage appeal.
Jack Daniel's Gentleman Jack is the perfect gift, with a ultra stylish bottle and a smooth rare whiskey that has been prepared through the most creative and exacting process. Charcoal mellowed before going into the barrel, and then charcoal mellowed again after reaching maturity, it's the only whiskey in the world to be charcoal mellowed twice, giving it the ultimate smoothness. Jack Daniel's has been distilling whiskey since the 1860s in Kentucky Tennessee, so they know what they're doing.
When I check out the aroma it's vibrant on the nose. I pour Jack Daniel's Gentleman Jack into a glass like a pro and swirl it around. I detect caramel, spicy, floral but also burnt char flavours (which I love). The World Loves Melbourne loves a smooth whiskey and Jack Daniel's Gentleman Jack delivers.
This is a sipper straight up, although you can mix it with Coke or drink it on the rocks. A heritage whiskey that you can keep returning to - smooth on the palate, without being harsh. Add some ice for a touch of sweetness. It lingers. It allures. Premium Tennessee whiskey to be savoured.
If you want something equally intriguing from a single barrel, look at Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel. It's matured in the barrelhouse and hand-picked for robust flavour. Complexities on the nose with a big vanilla and caramel hit. Again, it's smooth drinking.
Single barrels are a big trend right now in the whiskey world, particularly here in Melbourne. Mostly whiskey's are blended for signature taste, but we also like the signature character of maturation and bottling from a single barrel.
Individuality and nuances of the barrel shine through. The palate senses oak, vanilla, toffee and brown sugar, even Virginia tobacco and old leather, again with those burnt wood char flavours. Jack Daniel's Single Barrel has a long, lingering finish that is rewarding. Rich, powerful and intense.
