Popular belief has it that Jack Daniel’s was originally sold with a green label at a lower age, the black label only launched after Jack’s death in 1911 when Lem Motlow brought out an older aged (4 years) whiskey with a black label as a mark of respect. A touching story but this is not the case.

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 21/07/2012

Appearance

Golden amber with green tinges.

Aroma

Buttered corn and nutty, smoky notes (roast chestnuts) with faint notes of wax and shoe polish.

Taste

Starts hot with chargrilled buttered corn becoming more spicy (sandalwood and cinnamon) as the palate develops.

Aftertaste

Dry finish with peppery spice and red bell pepper notes. The polar opposite to Gentleman Jack.
