Jack Daniel’s Drops 2 High-End Bottled-in-Bond Whiskeys
Jack Daniel’s is the world’s best-selling whiskey brand, thanks in large part to the success of its Old No. 7. Its success, however, means very little to the whiskey-loving community – except that Jack might actually produce highly coveted whiskeys, especially lately. Its latest releases — two new bottled expressions — are for those who don’t just want a Jack and Coke.
As part of its new Bonded series, Jack Daniel’s Distillery has released Jack Daniel’s Bonded Tennessee Whiskey and Jack Daniel’s Triple Mash Blended Straight Whiskey. As bond-bottled whiskeys, both expressions meet the qualifications outlined in the Bottled-in-Bond Act of 1897.
The law – which at the time was passed to protect consumers from drinking bad or tainted spirits – specifies that for a whiskey to be called bonded bottled, it must be produced at the same distillery within a season of distillation, then aged for at least four years under federal supervision, then cut and bottled at 100 proof.
Bonded Tennessee Whiskey is essentially a beefier version of Jack’s Old No. 7. Jack Daniel’s Bonded has the same mashbill—80% corn, 12% malted barley, and 8% rye—as the ubiquitous Old No. 7. With the added benefit of having bonded bottling certification. According to the brand, Bonded has notes of “caramel, rich oak and spice.”
On the other hand, the Triple Mash is a blend of three bottled Jack Daniel’s whiskies: 60% rye, 20% Tennessee whiskey and 20% American malt. The resulting whiskey has, what Jack Daniel’s calls “pleasant notes of honey, malt and sweet oak”.
Both new whiskeys will be available nationwide with a suggested retail price of $30 for Bonded and $33 for Triple Mash. Both whiskeys were available for pre-sale on ReserveBar, but have since sold out.
