Last Friday and Saturday Dom Whisky Jastrzebia Gora inaugurated the purchase of barrel of Jack Daniel’s. They organized the event with the presentation, tasting, snacks and live music.
Dom Whisky Ambassador Marcin Chojnacki run the presentation and tasting of Jack Daniel’s expressions.
Tennessee whiskey, that is Jack Daniel’s, is characterised by filtering through maple charcoal (charcoal mellowing) before pouring into fresh barrels made of American oak (Quercus alba). The aim is to smooth the distillate and give it a gentle character.
Tasting started with the classic issue of Jack Daniels Old No. 7, 40% ABV. Perfectly suitable to drink with cola and ice. Next was Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Honey – with addiction of honey liqueur, 35% ABV – very sweet, not at all to my taste. Then Gentleman Jack, 40% ABV, charcoal mellowed second time before bottling – that makes it even more gentle.
At the end two issues that I liked the most – Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel, 45% ABV. First, the standard edition, the second bottled specially for the Dom Whisky Jastrzebia Gora – slightly sweeter and milder.
After the official part there was integration party with the accompaniment of live music. The night was very pleasant with very good fun.
