In 2016, The Jack Daniel Distillery celebrated 150 years, in celebration of that milestone they released both a bottle that was easy to find, and a more collectible bottle, a 1 Liter bottle with a decorative black case. This post covers the more collectible bottle and box, and a future post will document the 750mL bottle.

The box black, folds open like a book, with gold lettering on the face and rear, while black embossing on the sides. The front reads:

The back of the box reads:

Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Rye

CollectorOfJack.com

In September of 2017 Jack Daniel’s released their standard bottle of Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Rye, their 70% rash mash bill. This is a more affordable version of the Rye from Jack Daniel’s than the Single Barrel Rye released in 2016.

The bottle is your standard square bottle from Jack Daniel’s, though the label has a tan background with black writing and green highlights. The front of the bottle reads:

Jack Daniel’s

The side of the bottle reads:

Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Rye brings together two classics – rye’s distinctive flavor, drawn from our unique 70% rye grain bill, and Jack’s time-honored charcoal mellowing method. What emerges is a spicy whiskey that’s sippin’ smooth.
Jeff Arnett
Master Distiller
”Every day we make it, we’ll make it the best we can”

The back adds:

While the other side reads:

Pictured in the photos here are both a 750ml and 1L bottle, only really differing in size and spacing of the content on the labels. These bottles can be found worldwide.

Ladies Challenge - ProSolo Finale 2018 This post is coming 6 months (maybe more?) too late, but at least it is coming. The 2018 ProSolo Finale and Solo National Championships was a week of ups and downs for the team. The results were mixed across the board in terms of performance with some highlights and some down times as well.

Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel Rye

CollectorOfJack.com

This post continues our series of blog posts about Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Rye. As the Rye has matured, we’ve gone from Unaged to Rested and now on to Single Barrel. In 2016 Jack Daniel’s released the Single Barrel Rye, a 94 proof Tennessee Rye Whiskey. Depending on where you acquired it, it may or may not have come with a box. The front of the box is adorned with:

“Jack Daniel’s
Uniquely Crafted / Handmade Barrels
Single Barrel Rye
Tennessee Rye Whiskey”

The side of the box reads:

“Single Barrel Rye
Hand Selected
Jack Daniel Distillery
Lynchburg, Tenn.”

Towards the top of the rear box, the same graphic that adorns the front is found, below that you find:

“Single Barrel Tennessee Rye Whiskey draws its wonderful flavor from a unique 70% rye grain bill, matured to perfection in our handmade oak barrels, positioned in the upper reached of our barrelhouses. Bottled at 94$, this is a big bold rye that does not overpower. Complex flavors of ripe fruit mingle with light toasted oak notes, allowing the rye grain to shine through, creating a taste rich with spice and a pleasant lingering finish. Enjoy this Single Barrel Rye neat, on the rocks, or in classic rye cocktails.”

Inside the box you will find a bottled in the current Single Barrel form. The label reads the same as the front of the box (listed above) with the additional text:

“47% ALC/VOL 750ML
LYNCHBURG TENN.
MASTER DISTILLED”

Our bottle was bottled 2/25/2016 from barrel no. 16-1397, Rick No. L-4.

Single Barrel Rye can be found on store shelves for $50 (1/13/2019).

Release: 2016
Proof: 94
Size: 750ml
Price: $49.95

Following up the December 2012 release of the Unaged Rye, in April 2014 Jack Daniel’s released their Rested Tennessee Rye. This bottle was the second in what has become 3 releases of their Rye product. Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Rye is Master Distiller Jeff Arnett’s attempt at a new mash bill, this one consisting of 70 percent rye, 18 percent corn and 12 percent malted barley.

The bottle is the shape of Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel, with minimal labelling. The bottle is embossed with “Jack Daniel Distillery” on the front and Estd & Regd 1866.  The front of the label consists of:

“Batch No: 002
Distiller’s run
MADE IN TENNESSEE
RESTED TENNESSEE RYE

Barrel Aged
STRAIGHT RYE WHISKEY

40% ALC. BY VOL. (80 PROOF)”

The back side of the label consists of:

“This continues my exploration into the intriguing flavor drawn from premium rye grain. As our rye whiskey has rested in the barrelhouse, the spice character from the rye grain remains and the barrels have begun to assert their toasted oak and vanilla notes into the rye whiskey. Though not quite mature, the rested rye whiskey offers a hint of full potential for our Tennessee Rye. We hope you will enjoy this very limited release.

Master Distiller: Jeff Arnett Aug 2013”

On the back of the neck, my bottle reads: Unique Bottle No 02204.

Jack Daniel’s Rested Tennessee Rye was released in April 2014 at the White Rabbit Bottle Shop and limited around the country in select markets.

Availability as of January 9, 2018 appears to be limited. Online you can find it at Total Wine for $54, assuming they will ship to your state.
