Where has the time gone? The 2019 season, at least Nationally, has come, and almost gone. The ProSolo Finale and TireRack National Championships are next week in Lincoln Nebraska, and SpecFRS.com will be there. But how did we get there? Let’s look back on the 2019 season.

In 2016 Jack Daniel’s celebrated the 150th anniversary of the Jack Daniel’s Distillery in Lynchburg, TN. They commemorated this with a special edition bottle in a black and gold label.

The front of the bottle reads:

Jack Daniel’s

1866 150th 2016

Anniversary of the Jack Daniel Distillery

A Special 86 Proof Old No.7

Tennessee Whiskey

Distilled & Bottled By

Jack Daniel Distillery

Lynchburg, Tennessee, USA

43% Alc By Vol. (86 Proof)

The right side of the bottle reads:

This Special Eight-six Proof Old No.7 Is a Tribute to a Legacy of Whiskey Craftsmanship & The Birthplace of an American Classic

The left side reads:

The year 2016 Marks 150 Years of Jack Daniel Distillery The Oldest Registered Distillery in The United States of America

I don’t believe the bottle was limited in release, and was likely available in all 50 states. I haven’t seen one on a shelf in quite a few years however. You can find it online for around $130.

Release: 2016
Proof: 86
Size: 750ml
Price: $24.99

In May of 2019 Jack Daniel’s released the second in their Legacy Edition line. TotalWine.com has the bottled described as

Tennessee- The second release in the limited edition Legacy Series is reminiscent of an early 1900s era design. Its anchor and rope crest and black background speak to the quiet confidence and character of the Tennessee Whiskey that rests within.

While the label is predominantly black, it has notes of gold and red, along with gray and white decorating the design. The front label reads

Rich Mellow

Jack Daniel’s Old No. 7

Old Time Sour Mash

Distilled And Bottled By

Jack Daniel Distillery

Lynchburg, Tennessee, USA

43% Alc. By Vol. (86 Proof)

The right side of the bottle reads:

Legacy Edition 2

Our second bottling in the Limited Edition Legacy Series is reminiscent of an early 1900s era design. Its anchor and rope crest and black background speak to the quiet confidence and character of the Tennessee whiskey that rests within.

“Every day we make it, we’ll make it the best we can”

Jack Daniel

The left side of the bottle reads:

The Oldest Registered Distillery In The United States

DSP-TENN No. 1 Est. 1866

Old No. 7 Brand

Charcoal Mellowed Drop By Drop

Matured in Barrels of Our Own Making

Every Barrel Is Different Every Bottles Tastes The Same

The bottle should be available in all 50 states, if you don’t see it yet, check again soon. I received a call from my local liquor store yesterday to stay it arrived. I went and picked up two bottles and was able to get a cardboard box for the Legacy Edition 2 case as well. Nothing fancy, but cool none the less.

In March of 2019 Jack Daniel’s released the third bottle in their Tennessee Tasters’ series, Barrel Reunion #1, Straight Tennessee Whiskey Finished in Red Wine Barrels.

Notes: Rested at least 228 days in win barrel.

As a whiskey maker and a barrel maker, we see the barrel not simply as a container but as an ingredient. This unique whiskey began with a hand-crafted barrel that matured Jack Danie’s. Once emptied it aged fine Tennessee red wine. Then, finally it returned home to finish a small batch of our Tennessee Whiskey. What emerges from this second barreling are notes of caramel and oak with whispers of cherry and blackberry. We think you’ll be intrigued by this new finish and celebrate with us the reunion of our barrel and whiskey.

I picked up a few of these bottles at the Distillery in March 2019 and then picked up another bottle in Memphis on a trip in April. You can only find these Tennessee Tasters’ bottles in the state of Tennessee, so if you are considering a trip, be sure to get there soon! Rumor is there is another bottle coming out in 2019.

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.
