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.
