The nose is of good body with plenty of toasty oak, there are notes of corn and lovely cereal sweetness, there is a good smoke note, a little spice and toffee. The palate is full and mouth-filling. There are notes of cereal sweetness, the rye is in evidence with a touch of cigar box and nut oils, a little spice and an aniseed character. The finish is of good length with a hint of citrus and plenty of cereal sweetness.

You just have to have it. I have now currently 13 bottles in rotation (I am not an alcoholic, btw, but rotation always consists of around 10 bottles, which I finish in a year), and this Jack is up there close to the top right now...My current rotation: glenfiddich 12, glenfiddich 18, chivas 12, chivas 18, jwb 12, jack, agwa, glenlivet 12, hennessy vs, hennessy fine, courvoisier vsop, dimple 15....When you wash your mouth with Single barrel....Mmmm...You just feel that all the viruses are burned alive, heavy burn inside, and when you swallow, you just feel all of them are also gone to oblivion...Even on the nose, it burnes them almost all, it cleares your nose, Hennessy fine is slighlty better on burning on the nose, but I prefer the nose on Single barrel, so fine and beautiful....This single barrel is also so better then the regular Jack....And also the bottle is the best outhere...As the taste is consirned, this is way better then the white rabbit and regular, havent had the silver select yet, though... As for the consumption of this spirit...? I would not offer this to a lady, I would drink alone, this on in the winter times and in small quantities....Actually I just emptied a bottle in a less then a month, which is weird for me, that good it was to me, It went down so easily over Hennessy, or chivas....You can not go wrong with this one, but be careful....It is STRONG in every sence of the word....But I like it. It is surely 10/10 in my book....Just for the comperisment...The best drink or liquid of any form, that I have ever tried until now, is chivas 18, liquid gold.

Obviously with it not being blended, not everyone is going to have the same experience. I was eating at the Bourbon House in New Orleans with the family and we figured they knew their whiskey. I asked the waiter for something extra special and he recommended the JD Single Barrel. It was a hit with everyone. I now have a bottle at home that is so good, I honestly don't know how it could possibly be improved upon. I'm down near the bottom of the bottle, and it has mellowed out a bit from evaporation, but the flavor is still excellent. I have a bottle of Glenlivet 12, which was about the same price. It's an eye opening experience to go between the two. The JD Single Barrel is just as complex as the Glenlivet, but just tastes so much better.

I AM DEFINITLY A WISKEY CONASUEIR AND IT'S THE BEST

Not a huge JD's fan as it's way over priced, But got this just because I really wanted the bottle for my collection even though it was $90. Anyway, had read a review that basicly said, not that great when first opened but mellowed out after a couple of days of being exposed to air, so I did an experiment with a couple of mates that love JD's, more so to see if a single barrel was any better than the regular stuff & justified the price. None of us could really taste to much difference to that of the regular on the first drink, though it left the glass with an excellent aroma afterwards, but after a couple of days breathing, boy, it was a different beast. It had mellowed out a lot & there was a big difference in taste to that of the regular. Way better, but not double the price better. Nice as a once off, but wouldn't buy again due to the price. To many others out there to try at that price.

best whisky ive tasted in a very long time absolutely superb well worth the money

This is what Sinatra would have drank. 2 fingers, 4 ice cubes, and a splash of water. It's exceptional this way. Plus being able to drink Jack at 47% ABV is phenomenal. This is probably a good representation of what Frankie was drinking in the 60's before they watered the original no. 7 to 40% ABV. Totally worth the money it you don't live in the US.

This is one drink that I drink to relax at night after a busy and stressful day. The alcohol percentage is slightly higher than those sold for less (larger bottle Jack Daniels) and has a much better taste and scent. I would definitely recommend this drink to a casual drinker like myself.

Do a blind taste test with regular Jack and you will see it doesn't linger, proof is in your own test...I love it strait!
5th May 2014
Barely different to the tones and flavor of its mainstream predecessor.If giving it as a gift, Ill be received as a sexier contender to the less expensive bottle. Nothing more!

It gets you where you're going

Ive had this with coke and I yhink it ruins the flavor. Its much better neat
1st April 2014
To me this is still just A mixer, not worth the price tag. I will stick with my Johnnie Walker Double Black.

Jack Daniels single barrel smooth and pleasant to sip on it takes you back in time

That's British taxation for you pal, I believe Sweden has it even worse.

One of my favorite whiskies of all time, but i get a liter of it for 46 dollars, back home. based on this price that would cost 90+dollars here.

Its nice & smokey, got some powerful notes but its just not worth the money in my opinion. Gentleman Jack is a much better value, it doesn't have as much flavor but its much smoother and at 2/3 of the cost, Gentleman Jack is my preferred choice.

THE BEST IN THE STABLE.TRY IT STRAIGHT.SMOOTH STUFF.AV RAMPERSAD/TRINIDAD/WEST INDIES.

Harshness and other mistakes of jack daniels corrected, but decent whisky only.
9th September 2012
Nice oaky barrel flavor, great on its own. Not a drink to over indulge in just appreciate a good glass at the end of the day.
27th February 2012
Each one has their own concept of flavor, but to my palate this is not a "very powerful..." whiskey. The smoothness is easy to dwell on and find myself enjoying glass after glass. Okay, maybe too many glasses, but picking this up on occasion maybe only once every couple of weeks, I realize how much I forget how flavorful this stuff is. As the other reviewer indicated, sips like a good cognac. And, as with several of my cigar buddies, this is one of the favorite stashes we get into for an hour and half sit down.

nothing compares to it :)

A decent enough drink, good finish not to heavy.Nice oaky flavour and a nice warming aftertaste.Far to good to spoil with ice or coke
8th December 2010
Very powerful, full flavor. We must find the time do not always fit, at least to me .. hi hi
27th July 2010
This was a pleasant stuff though I must deduct a point for a too woody nose & finish. Don't spoil it with coke or ice as it is as good as the French cognacs:)
