Producers tasting notes:
“The Rye yields a deep copper hue and a nose that opens with an aroma full of smoke and raisin, while each sip lingers with molasses, sawn oak, and bold rye spice”

127.6 REASONS TO GIVE THIS RYE A TRY
Yes, you heard right – after the Master Tasters at the Jack Daniel’s Distillery sampled this Tennessee Rye Whisky straight from the barrel at a lip smacking 127.6 proof (63.8% ABV), they just knew they had to share it with the world.
Well…. not really with the world, because it was only released in Tennessee, and this is the first time it’s made its way to Australia and on to our virtual shelves, as you won’t find this rye pocket-rocket anywhere else in our great southern land.
Made with a mash bill of 70% rye, 18% corn and 12% malted barley, this Barrel Proof Rye is the 4th release in the experimental Tennessee Tasters’ range and was matured at the highest reaches of barrel house #1-05.
