Bonded Tennessee Whiskey is Bottled-in-Bond, aged in select barrels for added
depth and character. At 100 proof, the flavor delivers layered notes of
caramel, rich oak, and spice giving way to a pleasantly lingering finish.
Bottled-In-Bond Act (1897) stipulates that the whiskey must be:
From a single
distillery From one distilling season Bottled at 100 proof
Aged in a
federally bonded warehouse for at least four years (seasons to mature)
is back on the saddle again, as they’ve announced their brand new Bonded Series
of whiskey, featuring Jack Daniel’s Bonded Tennessee Whiskey
at 100 proof (50% ABV), with packaging inspired by the distillery’s 1895
bottles, because everybody loves a good throwback bottle.
If you aren’t
too familiar with bonded whiskey, it stems from the Bottled in Bond Act of
1897, meaning a bonded whiskey must be distilled by a single distiller during a
single season, matured in a government bonded warehouse for at least four
years, and bottled at 100 proof.
Master Distiller Chris Fletcher weighed in on the new release:
Daniel Distillery has been making exceptional American whiskey to the highest
standards for generations, before and after the Bottled in Bond Act, dating
back to the days of Mr. Jack himself.
Bonded and Triple Mash are a nod to our heritage with a touch of innovation and
craftsmanship. These whiskeys are another opportunity for both our friends and
new drinkers to explore and discover everything Jack Daniel’s has to offer.”
For the Bonded
Tennessee Whiskey, it’s a recipe of 80% corn, 12% malted barley, and 8% rye.
The barrels were selected for their unique and particular characteristics, like
color, flavor, and aroma, which bring a darker, richer, and oak-forwarded
flavor to Jack Daniel’s Bonded. It sits at 100 proof, with layers of caramel,
rich oak, and spice.
