No matter how you drink it, it’s hard to overlook one of the greatest whiskies in the world.


The Nose

Jack Daniel’s Black Label is unmistakable in its aroma. Vanilla, caramel, and butterscotch with a hint of wood and toffee make up this fantastic nose. The thrill is smelling them all come to life the longer you have your drink.

The Body And Palate

A while ago Jack Daniel’s switched from its 86 proof formula to 80 proof, leading to criticisms that the body is not as strong anymore. Many disagree, saying that the body just feels lighter, not worse.

Jack Daniel’s is known for it’s sweetness that is both smooth and smoky. Black Label keeps up the licorice palate, ad well as some corn syrup feel and taste that is very popular with imbibers. The great thing is that none of the flavors in the palate is overwhelming. Instead the vanilla, the English toffee, the toasted oak, and the fresh brewed coffee tastes all blend together seamlessly. This is especially apparent when you drink it slowly, and all the flavors open up like a cacophony of colors.

The Finish

There is nothing like the Black Label’s finish. It’s quick, sweet, and hits the best oat notes. Hints of spices arouse the senses and finishes with a caramel flavor that is sure to make you love the extra white pepper and walnuts coming your way. When people say the drink Black Label for the finish, they really aren’t kidding.

These are the reason Jack Daniel’s Black Label is one of the most famous whiskies in the world. For years they have offered the quality and consistency people expect when they open a bottle of Jack. This consistent branding over the years has opened Jack Daniel’s to many other labels, but it’s the Black Label that remains tested as the flagship of the company. Open up a bottle and try it for yourself. You are sure to never be disappointed.
