Open the Bottle - Jack Daniels Tennessee Whiskey Single Barrel from Hazel's Beverage World, Boulder, CO
Here's one I didn't have very high expectations for. I bought them to support my local store's barrel pick program and because I do like Jack Daniels whiskey just fine. It didn't hurt that they (I bought 2) were priced at $37.
We (me and Dan) opened this bottle together and we were both ok with it. It didn't immediately impress but very quickly, as I kept sipping, it got better and better or I changed or something happened because I ended up really liking this bottle. 47% ABV is enough to put back what the Lincoln County Process removes for this bottle so it has a decent mouthfeel and a lovely finish. Using it for an Old Fashioned is a nice way to shake up your cocktails too.
I'm glad I had this one and I'm glad there is one more waiting on the shelf. Cheers!
