Jack Daniel’s Winter Jack 2013

CollectorOfJack.com

Back in 2013, after the success of Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Honey, the distillery decided to release Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Cider.

A seasonal blend of apple cider liqueur & Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey”

The bottle is adorned with a skin wrapped in a wintery scene, complete with pine trees, snowflakes, an old snowed in cabin, a reindeer, some people, horses, and even a sled! The neck of the bottle has a black and gold label, while later releases have a different color (check out the next blog post!)


The side of the bottle reads:

Jack Daniel’s Winter Jack is a seasonal blend made perfect with our apple cider liqueur, Jack Daniel’s Old No.7 Tennessee Whiskey & the taste of holiday spices. It is based on an original recipe from Jack’s home Lynchburg Tennessee. When it’s cold outside and snow is falling our heartwarming Tennessee Cider is enjoyed with friends & family.

The rear of the bottle reads:

Jack Daniel’s Winter Jack Tennessee Cider

“Best Serviced Warm”

There is something special about every season in Lynchburg. Even the cold of winter has its own charm. We like to spend it gathered with family and friends, sharing a warm Tennessee Cider crafted from an original family recipe. Now, we are proud to share this tradition with you.

The other side of the bottle reads:

Made with Original Jack Daniel’s Old No. 7

Jack Daniel’s Seasonal Tennessee Cider

Best served Warm when it’s cold

The card tied to the bottle has the same message inside as you’ll find on the rear of the bottle, in addition you’ll find two recipes.

The first:

Tennessee Cider

5 oz. Winter Jack

Pour into microwave-safe glass, heat and enjoy!

The second:

Jack Daniel’s White Cider

4 oz. Winter Jack

1 oz. Caramel Sauce

4 ox. Half & Half

Stir ingredients together in a microwave-safe class, heat and enjoy!

Jack Daniel's Holiday Select 2014

CollectorOfJack.com

In our last blog post we covered the third in the Holiday Select series, in this one, we cover the fourth and final (as of 2018) release, the Holiday Select 2014 Limited Edition bottle from Jack Daniel’s.

This bottle, unlike all the other Holiday Select bottles comes in a box that has the face cut out to showcase the bottle. If you open the box, the back slides out and the bottle can be freed from the holder inside. The Sides of the box read Limited Edition 2014, while the back of the box (and the bottle) reads:

The 2014 bottling marks the first time I have chosen our Holiday Select barrels to be bottled individually. This year I wanted to showcase the depth and richness that a single barrel can offer and selected the most robust and complex whiskey I sampled. Each barrel is truly unique and we hope the bottle you’ve selected helps make your holiday special. – Jeff Arnette, Master Distiller

The shape of the bottle is a bit different than the earlier Holiday Select bottles as the Jack Daniel’s signature is towards the top, instead off on the right side as with the earlier bottles. The labelling on the bottle is a mixture of white and gold, and reads Limited Edition 2014 Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel Holiday Select Small Batch. The holly berry from earlier releases is missing.

In the photos below you’ll see two different bottles, one still boxed up, and one that I drank. For the 2014 Holiday Select release, I took my Family to Lynchburg, TN for the Jack Daniel’s barrel tree lighting and bottle signing event. I purchased a case of the 2014 Holiday Select bottles, and had those signed by Jeff Arnett and Chris Fletcher (Assistant Distiller). I gave most of the bottles away as gifts to friends and family, but kept three bottles for myself, one of which I chose to drink. That would be the empty bottle in the photos below.

The 2014 bottle is 48% Alcohol, or 96 Proof, down from 98 the year before. You can find it online at a few retailers, best price/stock I found was $199 as of December 10, 2018.


Release: December 2014
Proof: 96
Size: 750ml

In our last blog post we covered the second in the Holiday Select series, in this one, we cover the third, the Holiday Select 2013 Limited Edition bottle from Jack Daniel’s.

The bottle comes in a black box, like 2012, this box isn’t a clamshell opening. The bottle and an insert slide out the top of the box. The back of the box reads:

THIS JACK DANIEL’S LIMITED EDITION IS FROM BARRELS WE USED TO CRAFT OUR HOLIDAY BARREL TREE. FOR 2013, OUR MASTER DISTILLER, JEFF ARNETT, HAS SELECTED WHISKEY WITH THE RICK CHARACTER OF TOASTED OAK AND SPICE NOTESDRAWN FROM OUR HANDCRAFTED BARRELS. WE HOPE IT BRINGS A SPECIAL QUALITY FOR YOUR HOLIDAY SEASON.

The shape of the bottle is the same as the 2011 and 2012 bottle. Like the 2012 bottle, labelling has some gold instead of all white. The holly berry leaves are also in green, instead of the white as in 2011. Also differing from the 2011 bottle, the text on the back of the bottle now matches the text on the back of the box.

The 2013 bottle is 49% Alcohol, or 98 Proof, up from 90.4 the year before. Finding this one online appears a little more difficult, I found one on ebay listed at $179 as of December 8, 2018.


Release: December 2013

In our last blog post we covered the first in the Holiday Select series, in this one, we cover the second, the Holiday Select 2012 Limited Edition bottle from Jack Daniel’s.

The bottle comes in a black box, but unlike 2011 this box isn’t a clamshell opening. The bottle and an insert slide out the top of the box. The back of the box reads:

THIS JACK DANIEL’S LIMITED EDITION IS FROM BARRELS WE USED TO CRAFT OUR HOLIDAY BARREL TREE. FOR 2012, OUR MASTER DISTILLER, JEFF ARNETT, HAS SELECTED BARRELS WITH A LIGHT OAK CHARACTER, ALLOWING THE SOFTWARE NOTES OF VANILLA AND CARAMEL TO SHINE THROUGH. WE HOPE IT BRINGS A SPECIAL QUALITY TO YOUR HOLIDAY SEASON.

The shape of the bottle is the same as the 2011 bottle, but the labelling has some gold instead of all white. The holly berry leaves are also in green, instead of the white as in 2011. Also differing from the 2011 bottle, the text on the back of the bottle now matches the text on the back of the box.

The 2011 bottle is 45.2% Alcohol, or 90.4 Proof, down from 100 the year before. Finding this one online appears a little more difficult, I found one on ebay listed at $165 as of December 5, 2018.


Release: December 2012
Proof: 90.4
Size: 750ml

In 2011 Jack Daniel’s released the first (of 4) in their series of Holiday Select bottles of Jack Daniel’s. The limited edition bottles were essentially Jack Daniel’s single barrel bottles, but this collection consisted of whiskey from the barrels used in the Holiday Barrel Tree built near Lynchburg Tennessee’s town square. I was fortunate enough to collect all 4 in the series, 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014. Stay tuned for posts about each of them as we get into this 2018 holiday season.

The 2011 bottle came in a matte black box, with a clam shell opening on the top.  The front of the box reads “Jack Daniel’s Holiday Select 2011 Limited Edition”. The back of the box reads:

THIS JACK DANIEL’S LIMITED EDITION WHISKEY IS FROM THE BARRELS WE USED TO CRAFT IN OUR 2011 HOLIDAY BARREL TREE NEAR THE TOWN SQURE IN LYNCHBURG, TENNESSEE. THE WHISKEY HAS BEEN SELECTED FOR ITS PERFECT BALANCE OF OAK AND VANILLA CHARACTER BRINGING A SPECIAL QUALITY TO YOUR HOLIDAY SEASON. WE HOPE YOU’LL FIND ADDED WARMTH IN THE KNOWLEDGE THAT A PORTION OF THE PROCEEDS FROM THIS BOTTLE WILL BE USED TO HLP U.S. SERVICE MEN AND WOMEN TRAVEL HOME DURING THE HOLIDAYS.

Inside the box. you’ll find a bottle labeled “Limited 2011 Edition”, “Jack Daniel’s Holiday Select Tennessee Whiskey”. On the back of the bottle you’ll find:

THIS JACK DANIEL’S LIMITED EDITION IS FROM BARRELS WE USED TO CRAFT OUR HOLIDAY BARREL TREE NEAR THE TOWN SQUARE IN LYNCHBURG, TENNESSEE. THE WHISKEY HAS BEEN SELECTED FOR ITS PERFECT BALANCE OF OAK AND VANILLA CHARACTER BRINING A SPECIAL QUALITY TO YOUR HOLIDAY SEASON.

The 2011 bottle is 50% Alcohol, or 100 Proof. You can find it online for sale from a couple of retailers, lowest price I’ve found is $199 as of December 3, 2018.
