Blues and whiskey is, perhaps, one of the most alluring of partners-- both comfort food for the wandering soul regardless of the mood. For tonight's sampling of Jack Daniel's Single Barrel- Ducks Unlimited, bottled 2-11-2010- J.J. Cale, Little Feat and Dr. John are gathered in spirit (through their music coming out of the speakers).
A side note (or bottom note rather)-- if you have never been to the Jack Daniel's distillery, now would be a good time to pack up your finest things, get in your car and drive to Lynchburg, TN. It is that wonderful.
Before taking on this whiskey for this review, my palate had experienced thyme and rosemary encrusted pork chops, swiss potato cakes, and red pepper and cheddar salad. Also, I had previously had a glass of Lagunitas Hop Stoopid.
Nose: Caramel drizzled over vanilla-infused oak shavings. Cigars of the Cuban type.
Palate: Bananas Foster and caramel. Ooooo... hello spice.
Finish: Similar to palate with slight alcohol lingering in the tongue region-- not traveling down the throat or belly. Still, spice.
Conclusion: I just really love Jack Daniel's Single Barrel and I do not care who knows about it.
