Nose: 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.

Palate: 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.

User Reviews of the Jack Daniel's Single Barrel

I love the Single Barrel

Only an idiot mixes with cola.
This Whiskey is perfectly worth it's price.

8th August 2016

Smooth taste

Nose: Very rich smell of rose and cherry.

Body: Fine, balanced.

Taste: Smooth, charecterstic, prestige and rich in aroma. Doesn't taste like 45%. Feels like 17%, very smooth.

* Recomended for a nice moonlight evening dinner with a Cigar. Well done JD !

Satisfied but not very impressed

I tried J.D. single barrel about a week ago, after hearing about it, wanted to give it an opportunity. I think the flavor is ok, the entry is decent, caramel, banana, brown sugar, the mid pallet was decent, but the finish I did not enjoy, it seemed to just disappear, however it does taste much better than the number 9, like night and day. Compared to other bourbains, yes I know it's not a bourbain because of the charcoal process, but I still prefer my Elijah Craig, Four Roses Single Barrel, Buffalo Trace, and other bourbains. This J.D. single barrel in my opinion should be priced at no higher than $35.00, cheers!

You can't polish a poo

Jack Daniel's must be laughing all the way to the bank - they produce a crap, artificially flavoured whiskey as standard, then select "single barrels" of this and release it for mental money, with the same crap artificial flavour. Avoid.

A decent Whiskey, but not worth the price tag

Single barrels are always a riskier purchase since you pay for the increased variability and uniqueness. What I tasted from my bottle ( barrel #15-3848) was a harsh, bitter-sweet spirit. Not bad per se, but disappointing considering the price. Luckily I paid under EUR40 since it was on offer at my local supermarket. Adding water douses the flames, but is unable to repair the damage of the bitter spirit.

Considering the price, I had a more enjoyable time with Wild Turkey 81 (EUR29), although I wouldn't dissuade you from trying at least a dram of the singe barrel.

Best nose!

Best nose. Best bottle outhere. A keeper bottle for cheaper stuff if you will. The shape of the bottle and its neck is made that way, that the nose is strenghtened going out of the bottle. Even regular Jack, gentle Jack and MD1, when transfered to an empty SB bottle had much better nose, but still it CAN NOT be compared to the nose of JB single barrel. I ve been doing experiments with the original SB, and refeels of empty SB bottles with other Jack stuff, so I can vauch for this.

Taste is sweet, luxurious, strong with 45% ABV, although I would prefer that they would sent us here to 47% ABV, or even that we could get that cask strenghth from 59-62%, I would buy few bottles of that one immidiately.

The only downside is maybe that the taste is a little bit to sour, but the glorious nose, the overall mouth feel, even the little bit of sour taste is forgiven. I like washing my mouth with it, for a minute or more. A little pain might come, but it is soon gone, when the 45% ABV, starts to drop to 30% ABV in your mouth, releasing all this new flavours....Its just heaven taste...I cant explain this, you have to try it, If you have the guts, and IF you can take some pain.

Things that I like here in the Single barrel....Its is definetelly the shape of the bottle, the way it sits in the hand, the way you feel when you nose and drink straight from the bottle...The taste itself, I dont even mind the sourness to much...And the color, very dark, it can be seen that it was high in the warehouse and many years.

I ve had about 10 SB, and those that were darker, were better. Master Destiller of Jack Daniels, if you are reading this....Please wait a little more, and bottle the darker stuff. And we want more ABV!!!

What an improvement!

Absoluterly incredible, and after reading the tasting notes from the lads and lassies at MasterofMalt, I have nothing else to add, except that the charcoal taste is there and in my opinion it is a big drawback in JD's whiskey overall, and that the citrus is a bit like orange, maybe an orange marmalade (to all American readers this is just a bitter orange jam that is common in Europe and a big favourite here in Scotland). That fine tobacco note is lovely, both on the nose and the palate. A small drop (maybe a half teaspoon) of clean water really is a must in this whiskey. I wish there was an age statement here because it really is delicious and I would be interested to know at which age this lively spirit matures at. It is worth the money, unlike it's brother, the gentleman jack, which is in my opinion, overpriced. I'd stack this up next to a middle-aged 16 to 18 year old single malt from here in Scotland any day. Good work, to you guys at Jack Daniels, please keep it up with your new releases and stop disappointing us. This is the first good expression of your's I have tried, and we, the consumers, need you spearhead the quality American whiskey movement, you guys are international ambassadors for your type of spirit, you must start proudly showing it. Anyhow, well done guys.

Targeting Scotch drinkers.

Tried two glasses over the holidays. One on ice and the other neat. It lacks the syrupy sweetness typical of bourbon. The sugars are dialled back and leave a gap that other flavours should rushed to fill - sherry, honey, smoke or molasses.
Interesting as an alternative to other bourbon and could find a pace in a diverting tasting line up beside Highland single malts

I like it

I agree with the previous reviewer...being a west coast hop head this whiskey appeals to me. Bitter or spicy, if you prefer, smooth. Very enjoyable. It is a Christmas gift from D.I.L. to my son. I was given the privilege of opening the bottle and trying it because son has to work tonight. I like it but it is unique.

26th December 2015

Not Worth The Price IMO. Very Bitter.

Jack Daniels Single Barrel Whiskey may be a good choice for some who like a very strong (47%) and very bitter whiskey. I believe the bitterness is due to the increased strength. I am a huge whiskey fan and my staple go-to choice is Glenlivit. Having said that, their was a special on the JD Single Barrel gift set and I thought I would give it a try. It is not bad, and is pretty smooth, but it a is a bitter strong/bitter for my taste. I much prefer Glenlivit on the rocks over JD single barrel. As another reviewer said, "it is just another mixer to me", and I would have to agree; so why not just buy the regular JD for half the price? If I am paying over $45 for a 750ml bottle of liquor I expect it to be good by itself or on the rocks. I wont be buying this again.

Top 5 in a rotation

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.

Would not change a thing

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.

21st December 2014

Awesome

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

16th December 2014

The bottle is the best part

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.

What way not to drink it!

Drank three glasses with a dash of coke no ice and was dying for five days later.

john bailey wales

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

8th July 2014

Great Expression of Tennessee Whiskey

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.

4th July 2014

Love the single barrel Daniels.

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.

3rd July 2014

Smooth!

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

Overpriced!

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!

28th April 2014

It's worth it

It gets you where you're going

8th April 2014

hii

Ive had this with coke and I yhink it ruins the flavor. Its much better neat

1st April 2014

Not For the Price!

To me this is still just A mixer, not worth the price tag. I will stick with my Johnnie Walker Double Black.

26th March 2014

Beautiful whiskey

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

27th October 2013

@ holy price!

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

1st October 2013

holy price!

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.

15th September 2013

Nice but overpriced

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.

21st August 2013

GREAT

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

17th April 2013

overpriced!

Harshness and other mistakes of jack daniels corrected, but decent whisky only.

9th September 2012

Nice and Smooth

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

A Smooth, Smooth Whiskey

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.

30th December 2010

love it

nothing compares to it :)

25th December 2010

Very pleasant

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

Powerfull whiskey

Very powerful, full flavor. We must find the time do not always fit, at least to me .. hi hi

27th July 2010

A nice dram

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:)
