Following an Unaged Rye in 2012, Rested Rye (2014), and Single Barrel Rye (2016) comes this new expression made from a mash bill of 70% rye, 18% corn and 12% malted barley. It's reportedly composed of whiskeys up to five years old, with many barrels sourced from the higher sections of the rickhouse. Since Master Distiller, Jeff Arnett recognised their own customer base enjoy other styles of American whiskey, Jack Daniels has been slowly making inroads into this growing category. “Our whiskey-making process is so special, and it just makes sense for us to create our version of one of America’s first whiskeys,” he said . “This is rye whiskey made Jack’s way."

Other reviews... What begins as a banana, oat, and Malt-O-Meal delight turns into honey and potato chips. This is followed by cookie dough, dark cherries, sweet-potato chips, beets, dehydrated pineapple, pine nuts, and oak. Its medium finish offers a mouthful of banana. If you love banana, you’ll love this whiskey.

...It’s still early in Jack’s adventure into rye making, and with the company releasing a different rye product every year, a lot could change over the next few years. For now, this is yet another rye from Jack Daniel’s that shows a lot of promise, but at some point the company will need to prove themselves with a product that can stand on its own and go up against the best in the rye category. That may still be a few years down the road, but for a company as tried and true as Jack Daniel’s, they’ve been surprisingly whimsical with their rye product so far. While Jack’s Tennessee Rye doesn’t quite shine as bright as it could, it nevertheless still shines in its own unique way. 45% Alc./Vol.
