Jack Daniel’s Old No.7 Black Label
At Jack Daniel’s, things are done a little differently, which is what gives the Jack Daniel’s brand a distinctive character. At Jack Daniel’s whisky, they charcoal mellow their whiskey drop by drop then let it age in, their own, specially handcrafted barrels. What makes it special is that there is no specific calendar. The Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey is ready only when their tasters say it is.
Similar to bourbon, this Tennessee whisky is made with the additional step of charcoal filtering the unaged whiskey. Known as the ‘Lincoln County process’, the mellowing is done by dropping the spirit through a vat of sugar maple charcoal before going into the barrels.
Just like Jack Daniel himself did, this Tennessee Whiskey is judged using the senses. In fact, more than a century later, their whiskey is still judged the same way. By the way it looks, by the way it smells and, of course, by the way it tastes.
