Jack Daniel's Single Barrel Select
|Region||United States, Tennessee|
Nose: The aroma of fresh baked banana bread, walnuts, vanilla, and powdered sugar
Palate: Toffee and butterscotch on the front develop into cinnamon toast and golden apple

Proof 94 / Barrel No. 22-06617 / Barrel House 2-01 / Bottled 8-16-22
At first, this whiskey is easy to underestimate, since the amber color and mild toffee aroma give little away. But one sip, and it is clear this whiskey means business: Deep vanilla cookie and cigar tobacco flavors unfold to a big, burnt-caramel finish, which washes over the palate like a rolling wave. Manhattan-worthy.
