In addition to the new 12 Year Old bottling, Jack Daniel’s has also launched the second batch of its 10 Year Old (48.5% ABV). The first batch launched in 2021, and was the brands first age-stated bottling in over 100 years.
Jack Daniel’s 12 Year Old, is said to be sweet and creamy with notes of pipe tobacco, seasoned oak, and butterscotch. Jack Daniel’s 10 Year Old Batch 2, is said to be oak forward with layers of dark fruit and bittersweet cocoa.
Commenting on the launch, Chris Fletcher, Jack Daniel’s Master Distiller, said: “The Jack Daniel Distillery is one of the most complete whiskey distilleries in the world, and we’re fortunate to have a deep history to draw inspiration from and craft premium whiskeys in a way that stays true to our heritage of quality and innovation. We released our first age-stated whiskey since the early 1900s in this series about a year ago and were thrilled with the overwhelmingly positive response. We know there is a lot of excitement for our Aged Series, and we can’t wait to share Batch 2 of our 10-Year-Old Tennessee Whiskey along with the first release of our 12-Year-Old Tennessee Whiskey.”
Jack Daniels 12 Year Old and 10 Year Old Batch 2, will be available later this month from specialist retailers in the US, for the respective RRP’s of $80.00 and $70.00.
