Jack Daniel’s Rested Rye Batch 2 Release Aug 2013
Our Tennessee Rye has been “resting” quietly in our
barrelhouses these past few years and we invite you to watch it mature along
with us with this limited release. The spice character from the rye grain
remains from the original Unaged Rye, but the barrels have begun to assert
their toasted oak and vanilla notes into the rye whiskey.
Charcoal mellowed, matured in a new white oak barrel and
offered only in this small batch. We think you will appreciate how our
Tennessee Rye is maturing.

in small batches, the rested rye remains a true teaching label. Showing the
mass majority of new whiskey imbibers how a spirit changes in a barrel over the
The Rested Rye release continues the Jack Daniels
expedition into the captivating flavour drawn from the first Unaged Rye
offering. This time around the spice character from the Unaged Rye grain
remains but the rye whiskey has rested in the barrelhouse meaning the barrels
have begun to assert their toasted oak and vanilla notes into the rye whiskey.
Though not quite mature, this Rested Rye whiskey offers a hint of the full
potential of the Tennessee Rye. It has been produced from a mash bill of 70%
rye, 18% corn and 12% malted barley and was aged for two years in new barrels
with a combination of toasting levels. This mash bill is the first new mash
bill used at the Jack Daniel Distillery in over a century.
