WHISKEY INDUSTRY NEWS | Today, the Jack Daniel Distillery released its 12-Year-Old Tennessee Whiskey – Batch #2 and 10-Year-Old Tennessee Whiskey – Batch #3. The expressions are the latest in the Jack Daniel’s Aged Series, an annual release of age-stated expressions launched in 2021 to honor the brand’s whiskey-making traditions.

“Our Jack Daniel’s Aged Series has given us the opportunity to produce modern whiskeys that simultaneously capture the essence of the liquid Mr. Jack created over 150 years ago,” said Chris Fletcher, Jack Daniel’s Master Distiller. “These releases embody the artistry, passion and craftsmanship that define Jack Daniel’s legacy, and I’m excited for our friends to enjoy this year’s batches of special whiskeys.”

While batches within the Aged Series will have slight variations, the predominant notes of oak, butterscotch and tobacco can be found in each whiskey. Jack Daniel’s 12-Year-Old – Batch #2 has predominant notes of pipe tobacco, oak, and butterscotch, while Jack Daniel’s 10-Year-Old – Batch #3 is oak-forward with layers of fruit and cocoa.

Both expressions were charcoal mellowed and aged in new, toasted, and charred American white oak barrels first in the upper floors of their barrelhouse before being relocated to the lower ricks to extend the maturation process. Both share the same grain bill as the classic Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey of 80 percent corn, 12 percent malted barley and 8 percent rye.

Jack Daniel’s 12-Year-Old Tennessee Whiskey – Batch #2 is offered at 107 proof (53.5 percent abv) and Jack Daniel’s 10-Year-Old Tennessee Whiskey – Batch #3 at 97 proof (48.5 percent abv). They are available in limited quantities across the United States this month in 700 mL bottles for suggested retail prices of $94.99 and $84.99, respectively.
