Jack Daniel's Single Barrel Reviews

Not Bad

Got plenty of Banana on the nose. The palate has a lovely mouthfeel with and spice was the predominant note for me and the finish was caramelized nuts. Just poured myself a classic No.7 to compare and this is far superior. Probably wouldn't buy again at this price point but well worth a try.

23rd October 2020

Expected a little better than No.7, got so much more!

If you buy this because you like Old No.7 and want something a little more refined you’ll be in for a very pleasant surprise. Super sweetness on the nose and bits of fruit coming through. Really lovely drink that is not harsh on the palette at all.

24th July 2020

Pretty nice, maybe not as good as Makers Mark 46 (for a similar price point)

Pretty good for a supermarket whisky, I normally go for Makers Mark 46, but just for a bit of variety I tried this. Slightly cheaper than the 46, but 99% as nice. Only downside I guess, is that being a single barrel, the next bottle I buy might not taste the same.

12th June 2020

Absolutely fantastic

Wow! Hints of caramel and spice. 10 times what old number 7 is and incredibly smooth. A real treat. One of the greats.

16th May 2020


Absolutely stunning bottle

4th April 2020

Very drinkable. Elijah Craig meets Knob Creek.

Maybe a little over priced at $49, maybe not. You could do far worse buying anyone of the boutique bourbons on the market. This single barrel select has the classic flavor which I really like. Robust yet smooth with a mature age in its taste and holds up well on the rocks. And I frequently enjoy a lot of fine and pricey bourbons. I know, it’s NOT called bourbon but it is a bourbon by definition. Looong sweet butterscotch, banana finish. Kind of a cross between Elijah Craig and Knob Creek.

11th March 2020

Great quaffing

This is my go - to quaffer, on ice with a little soda water / sparkling water.

25th June 2019

Not bourbon

I am American whiskey lover who has never loved American whiskey. I’m a single malt scotch and occasional single pot still Irish man. So much so that I was given a bottle of this many years ago and I still haven’t opened it. I don’t mean to sound like a snob, but it must be pointed out that Jack Daniel’s is not bourbon it’s Tennessee whiskey. Bourbon comes from Kentucky. Both must contain at least 51% corn in the mash bill and spend a minimum of 4 years in charred American oak barrels. The difference is that Tennessee whiskey goes through something called the Lincoln County process, where the whiskey is filtered through maple charcoal after distillation. Like most whisk(e)y producing countries there are federal rules governing all this. Therefore, it’s impossible to compare this to other bourbons. There are many committed bourbon drinkers who hate the taste of Tennessee whisky. To those who want to try this because they want bourbon, this is not for you.

9th June 2019

It had me by hello...

Fantastic, I don't care what haters say. I always keep a spare bottle so I don't run out. One point tho, in Holland you can get this for € 30,-. No way I would pay € 55,-.

26th May 2019

Is it just me? But this is s sipper!

I have to play a DA here. I do not understand the negative reviews. I ve had at least a 83, and up to 98 an rolling my eyes and literally tracking down the remaining bottles from various supermarkets. You know, If shit hits the fan, or the doc gives you the news kind of backup bottle. This particular was an easy 87, maybe to ordinary for some, not woody and sweet for my personal taste mega score , but still is a very very good one. Relaxing on the nose, semi sweet on the palate, and smooth like the MF. You can wash your mouth with it for minutes. Lots of frutiness, minimal spices, this is no regular banana sweet childish jack. Damn, this bottle will be gone in a week. I shant be melliwing this one for a half a year. Batch? Sand in Slovenia. We are turist country, if you find it, pick it up, no thanking me. It s not stacking worthy, but you will love it. Batch is 18-7077 10.2.18.

14th April 2019

Kentucky style bourbon from Tennessee

A reasonable sipper not unlike Maker's Mark. The single barrel distillery process means that not a single bottle tastes the same unless it is distilled from the same barrel.

30th March 2019

Too expensive, scratchy, spicy,and great!

I don’t like no 7, it’s awful and Gentleman jack is ok. I like it because it’s different to most other whiskeys in taste but far from top shelf. This one however is rough, it feels stronger than it is and scratches the throat on the way down before leaving you with a warm spiced finish... and that is why I love it! No mixing at all, the only thing i’d Like to water down is the price because £45 is steep. £35 would be about right for me! My daily go to would be buffalo trace or knob creek

21st March 2019

I came here to defend it. It is very good.

Wow, so many harsh reviews. Let me say, I am not a die hard fan of basic no. 7 expression. But in my. Opinion single barrel is worth trying and it is very solid perforemer. If you can get it on sale it is no brainer.
The general issue with single barrels is that they differ, so if you had a great pour before, may not hit your palate the same way if tried from another bottle.
This particular expression has strong bananas on the nose, a signature JD really. But it's not hideous! It is pleasant and spicy, a bit overpriced, maybe, but it is solid Tennessee whiskey at 45% and unique per barrel.

10th February 2019


Very disappointing. At this price ($45), and considering the resources available to them, I was expecting a superior bourbon. On the very first sip, I knew this was anything but top shelf. It's so harsh that I found it virtually impossible to detect any distinguishing traits. What I did note was a weedy, almost grassy flavor profile. I prefer a slight sweetness in bourbon, but this is almost astringent. Any subtleties in flavor were lost on me.

22nd December 2018

A chore to drink

A perfectly average nose with solid oak sting, followed by the worst possible flavour.

29th November 2018

Silly price in UK- A bit raw

Paid £30 at Tesco. Apparently it's normally £45 there. Some barrels will be better than others. Initially it had a nice nose, fresh palate, medium finish. It soon lost it's character and developed a taste like furniture polish, corn and oak but not much balance. A bit rough and maybe on the bitter side. For £30, Maker's Mark, Bulleit or Woodford Reserve... 4 Roses; just about any of the regular stuff in that price range is more satisfying. Anything in the £45 range should be miles better than this. It was interesting to experience it though.

22nd October 2018

Don’t drink this unless you love cigars.

I drank this meat last night and I doubt I will again, every mouthful is like taking a mouthful of cigar smoke, thebafer tatse is decent, but you are always fighting that first mouthful, so it’s back to Jack and Coke for this bottle and never again to be drank with neat

20th October 2018

Better than Jack

I buy my bottle 35 euros in a edeka market. For that price it's a good friendly Tennessee whiskey.
But don't buy it for more than 35 euros.

23rd March 2018

There's bottom shelf bourbon stronger and tastier than this!

I got a sampler with No. 7, Gentleman Jack, Single Cask and Honey-flavored, which is a liqueur, so we won't talk about it.

I drink all spirits neat, from a Glencairn glass and I have tried my share of single malts, bourbons and rye. And I like Dickel whisky, so I am not biased against TN or their whisky.

No. 7 is just nasty. Modern airplane glue with vanilla aroma. Harsh on the palate. And I don't mean the ethanol (bottled at mere 40%), but likely all the fusel nastiness. No wonder people drown this with Coke.

Gentleman Jack - just a slightly more refined vanilla superglue. Really a shame. Still a mere 40%, is this trying to be a premium dram?

Single Cask - you'd think a single cask whisky would be amazing, after all, someone with a nose, taste buds and experience tried it and then it's bottled. Nope, not this one. Just a "somewhat" cask strength of No. 7 - more superglue. I just don't like Coca Cola enough to drink Jack Daniels.

8th February 2018

Decent Tennessee whiskey but not my favourite American.

Not a big fan of Jack Daniels no 7, but this one is nicely executed. All the JD tastes amplified but well balanced, unlike its cheaper counterpart. In a price range of some nice and memorable Scotches so only for fans of Tennessee Whiskey. But it is a good offering from JD. Makes great Old Fashioned as well.

27th December 2017

Not bad on its merits, but for the price, get a Four Roses or Wild Turkey selection instead.

Eye: Deep amber, the honey and straw of the color of No 7 and Gentleman are all but gone.

Nose: Carried by the alcohol but soft and gentle. Honey. Straw. Sugar. Toffee. Some hidden smoke.

Tongue: Corn. Caramel. Oak. Smoke. Banana. Citrus, mostly in the back of the mouth.

The heat is an exceptional for the 92-prood spirit. Maybe less heat than the much less well balanced, 80-proof Gentleman Jack.

Finish is very short. Like, difficult to analyze because it's practically gone with the liquor short. Some smoke lingers for a good long time though.

85/100: Exceptional bottom-shelf flagship, piss-poor excuse for a single barrel offering. This would be a great spirit at $20-$30. By all means try a dram, because it really is good liquor, but don't waste your hard earned money on a full bottle of this.

17th September 2017

Not a nice experience

Nose: chemicals with a glue-ish acetone like overtone, not nice
Body: just can not get past the acetone
Taste: bitter and quite acidic, light mouth-feel but no real taste other than well, chemicals.....
A really bad glue-like after taste lingers, have tried a couple of sips but can not get to even drinking it.
This was the single barrel 100 proof, I really hope it was a fluke in the distilling process in which bad esters from pre- or after-cut were bottled.

20th August 2017

way too expensive for just a nice ok whiskey nothing special . And this product is 47% in the states when will the English government learn to stop watering s**t down

Nice whiskey served straight but by a long shot is this worth £40 more like £15-£20 max

21st February 2017

A nice surprise

A jack daniel's bottle usually means mixing with coke or burning throat shots. I'm no great expert, but this is a nice sipping whisky and I enjoyed it very much.

19th September 2016

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 !

7th August 2016

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!

17th May 2016

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.

14th March 2016

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.

6th March 2016

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!!!

27th February 2016

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.

24th January 2016

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

31st December 2015

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.

anthony kingston

I didn't buy it to compare, I bought it to enjoy. Its very nice

2nd March 2015

sean cassidy ireland

like my father paddy long gone I love a good glass of whiskey .Single Barrel is a fine whiskey but no comparison toBlack Bushmills

15th February 2015

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.

7th February 2015

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



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.

30th November 2014

What way not to drink it!

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

11th August 2014

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


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!

28th April 2014

It's worth it

It gets you where you're going

8th April 2014


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



17th April 2013


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:)
