The Jack Daniel Distillery Family of Tennessee Whiskeys

Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskeys share a family resemblance. Each of them calls Lynchburg (pop. 361), Tennessee, and America’s oldest registered distillery home. They’re all made with the same ingredients:

Corn, rye, barley malt and iron-free water from a limestone Cave Spring.
Each one comes of age on the Moore County hillside, maturing in newly charred, white oak barrels. And, they all acquire their smooth charcoal-mellowed character by making the same journey drop by drop through 10 feet of hard sugar maple charcoal.
Although they share these family traits, they enjoy their own individual tastes.

Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel Tennessee Whiskey (94 proof)
Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel whiskey is as individual as the variations in the oak wood from barrel to barrel. As a result, bottles drawn from individual barrels will offer subtle differences in nose, color and taste. It is a mature dark amber single barrel whiskey, aged in the upper floors of the warehouses where the whiskey’s color and taste deepen and mature an extra measure. Master Distiller Jimmy Bedford and a team of tasters select the whiskey when it reaches its peak maturity.
They taste for a singular combination--the robust flavor of a single barrel and the smooth character of Jack Daniel’s. What finally emerges from the wood is a bold full-bodied whiskey with heightened flavors of toasted oak, vanilla and caramel. Stands up to the richest of cigars.

Jack Daniel’s Old No. 7 Black Label Tennessee Whiskey (80 proof)
Jack Daniel’s Black Label is the world-famous whiskey awarded seven international gold medals, including the one collected by Mr. Jack Daniel himself at the 1904 World’s Fair in St. Louis. It received highest honors then as the “world’s best whiskey.”
The secret of its international success is the unique taste that comes from our old-time charcoal-mellowing process. Today, Jack Daniel’s Black Label continues to make new friends around the world.
And folks still have plenty of nice things to say about it. Because it is matured to peak perfection, this well-rounded and balanced medium amber whiskey has a pleasant mix of caramel, vanilla and wood notes highlighted by a slightly fruity aroma.
Pleasingly dry on the finish.

Gentleman Jack Rare Tennessee Whiskey (80 proof)
During his life, Mr. Jack Daniel tried his hand at charcoal mellowing his whiskey twice to heighten the benefits imparted by hard sugar maple charcoal. Based on Mr. Jack’s early notion, the Jack Daniel Distillery introduced this whiskey in 1988, because some occasions call for a gentler Jack. Gentleman Jack is crafted from a slightly different recipe and, unlike any whiskey in the world, is charcoal mellowed twice, once before and once after aging. It’s been called Tennessee’s answer to a fine cognac...silky and soft...caramel and fruit (black currant and mandarin), laced with vanilla and smoke. It’s a light amber, delicate, yet balanced Tennessee whiskey.
Folks in Lynchburg simply admire it for its “gentle” farewell.

Jack Daniel’s Old No. 7 Green Label Tennessee Whiskey (80 proof)
Like its well-known brother Black Label, Jack Daniel’s Green Label is an old-time charcoal-mellowed Tennessee Whiskey that’s aged at least four years.
But because of where it came of age--the difference in warehouse locations, the place it occupied in the warehouse and the weather from year to year--the whiskey matures slower than others resulting in a slightly lighter color. It’s still a delicious, well-balanced whiskey.
According to our friend and spirit writer Mr. John Hansell, it’s “straight forward and unpretentious.” It features “delicate notes of fruit, caramel and vanilla, with subtle charcoal and wood flavors.”
