This bottling commemorates the 150th anniversary of the Jack Daniel Distillery. Besides being bottled at 43% (instead of the usual 40%) I don't know if there is anything different in the production of this, from the standard Old No. 7.

The colour is a reddish medium gold. On the nose there is toasted oak, light caramel, wood smoke and apricots. Water just tames everything - don't add. Lighter and fruitier than you might expect.

The oak is more dominant on the palate, with more spices and a sour maltiness. Buttery. Thinner with water - again, try to avoid that. Very nice.

The finish is long with more smoke, huge oak and beef stock. This is a subtler version of JD (and much subtler than the Single Barrel I just tasted) and so worth picking up. Not better or worse than Old No. 7, just a slight variation.
