We've managed to source Jack Daniel's No. 27 Gold Tennessee Whiskey which was only scheduled as a Duty Free release. This American Whiskey promises a rich, distinctive expression of the distillery's original Old No. 7.
Crafted to the same uncompromising standards, 'Gold' earns its name from double barrelling and double mellowing. In short, this Jack is extra matured in golden-hued maple barrels and twice charcoal mellowed. Master Distiller, Jeff Arnett says you should expect ...subtle hints of rich, warm maple and toasted oak on entry giving way to a complex medley of fruit."
He added that the double charcoal mellowing process provides an exceedingly smooth finish that works especially well with the maple barrels. The extra time and attention required to craft this ultra-smooth spirit means Jack Daniel's No. 27 Gold will only be released in a limited number of venues.
Tasting Note: Gold in colour. Luxurious hints of maple double mellowed for smoothness with a rich, warm finish.
