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.

“Rye has always been part of the Jack Daniel’s Old No. 7 grain bill, but it has never been the lead grain until now. This is my exploration into the intriguing flavor drawn from premier rye. Only a limited number of bottles will be available so that the majority of the new rye can mature in our barrelhouses for a future release. This unaged rye offers a spicy, surprisingly sweet character that I hope you will enjoy.

2018 Year in Review

Chris Hammond
Here we are, January 1st (or 2nd) 2019, and I haven’t done a year in review for 2018. This post will have to suffice, it’ll be abbreviated, 2018 was a busy year, lots of change, lots of excitement, far too much to cover in the 10 minutes I’ve allotted myself for this post tonight. This post won’t cover family items, for those you can check out all my Facebook posts.
