Overall

As straight rye whiskies go, this offering from Jack is on the mellow side but with just enough of that rye signature spice. What sets this rye apart is its dry toasty oak notes balanced by delicious and distinctive toffee popcorn and vanilla fudge. This is a quaffable rye, if there is indeed meant to be such a whiskey? Before you decide, try this neat and then tall over ice with soda, preferably served with popcorn. It’s the popcorn that will disappoint.
