As a long time fan of Jack Daniel's, there was no question about what I would buy for my Dad for Christmas. Originally I was going to get the Silver Select bottle but as the cheapest rocketed by £15 in the run up to the holiday season I decided to go for something a little less painful on the wallet.
Presented in a gorgeously designed new bottle with a cork stopper and beautifully done label, this is Jack at it's best. Each bottle comes from a barrel that is unique. It could be the way it's stored, where the barrel is kept, how long it matures, or even the ingredients, so no two barrels are alike. Around the stopper is the details of which barrel your bottle came from along with the date it was bottled.
Inside, the golden-brown liquid is slightly lighter in shade than a standard bottle of Jack, and although it's not open yet, I am looking forward to smelling or maybe even tasting it on the big day.
It may be a lot more expensive than a normal bottle of Jack Daniel's, but if it is a gift for someone special in your family and they appreciate good whisky, it is certainly worth the extra cash. I will update the review if I get a chance to taste it.
