One of a long series of special commemorative edition 'Scenes from Lynchburg' bottlings that Jack Daniel's have produced for their legions of fans. This particular scene (No. 9) features some old-timers leaning on a charcoal-mellowing vat.
A litre bottle of the twelfth in Jack Daniel's Scenes from Lynchburg series, and has a lovely picture of an old fire engine on the front. As with other bottlings in this series, this has been released at the slightly higher strength of 43%.
A limited edition of Jack Daniel's bottled in honour of the birthday of Angelo Lucchesi, the first JD salesman. He started back with the company in 1953 and turned 90 on Christmas Eve 2010 - top work, sir.
A special edition from Jack Daniel's, celebrating one of the whiskey's biggest fans - Frank Sinatra. For over 50 years JD was a firm favourite of Ol' Blue Eyes, regularly appearing in his hand as a tipple of choice. This release is not only bottled at a stronger 45%, but is also partly matured in 'Sinatra barrels', grooved on the inside to allow more wood/spirit interaction, developing deeper and more intense flavour.
An old bottling of George Dickel No.12. A brand that often gets overshadowed by it's neighbour, Jack Daniels, this was recently awarded a massive 93 points from the Beverage Tasting Institute in Chicago, fending off stiff competition to win a Gold Medal at their American Whiskey Tasting. We estimate this bottle dates from the 1980s.
