Jack Daniel’s Unaged Tennessee Rye Whiskey is a limited release due to the exciting prospect of the forthcoming Jack Daniel’s Rye Whiskey. While the new product is aging in barrel, the folks at Jack Daniels, including Master Distiller Jeff Arnett, decided to release a small amount of the unaged rye for us to try while we eagerly await the release of the aged version. Its very interesting to see how rye whiskey affects a mashbill. This bottling is a perfect way to really get a sense of what it brings to the table. Everything on the palette is so smooth, light and mellow then right and the end you get that distinctive, spicy rye pop right at the end. This is usually why whiskey makers include various amounts of rye to balance notes like caramel, oak, and vanilla. So I would definitely recommend picking up this limited release while you can so you can experience this yourself. As far as mixing goes I could see it in a Sour, a Cosmopolitan, a Sake Martini, and I think it would make a killer Motlow’s Mule (stay tuned for that original recipe). Check out my impressions below.

Aroma- big aromas of fresh baked sourdough bread, warm rye breads, with faint notes of ripe stone fruit.

Taste- a slick slightly oily texture with very mild and light in flavors of sourdough and water cracker followed by a burst of spicy rye notes.

Finish- finishes clean with mild notes of bread and crackers.
