Tasting Notes by Rantavahti

Jack Daniel's Silver Select is high strength but surprisingly mellow. Balancing with sweetness and spices, it is nicely complex and subtle. Every barrel is aged in a different location in their warehouse.

Jack Daniel's Silver Select caught me off-guard. I really didn't expect much from it. Well, not a great one after all but still, 80 point dram, which is always a good result.

I'll name this JD in movie talk as the "Crazy Heart". Because after all, Bad Blake is actually good. And straight up from America like country music.

Nose: Vanilla and citrus with caramel and cinnamon. Surprisingly a subtle nose.

Taste: Thick and sweet with wee spices. Sugar and vanilla with some salty tones and wood.

Finish: Nicely long with lots of spices. Some sugar and fruity notes too.

Balance: Very nice and smooth, when thinking that this is actually Jack Daniel's! Thick and characteristic but for this much ABV, surprisingly smooth.

Yes indeed, saw it on Finnish telly last weekend so it was a easy pick. Well, the movie is better than this JD but they do have very much in common.
