Drink Review: Jack Daniel's Tennessee Apple

By Mike Thayer

Blended and flavored whiskeys are red hot right now, consumer demand for brown spirits continues to rise with American Whiskey in particular seeing some phenomenal sales growth.

Regular readers know that I am a fan of flavored whiskey, I've always got a bottle of something in my freezer for a chilled shot or a flavored specialty in the liquor cabinet to enjoy on the rocks.  My favorite in all this tasting fun so far, has been Yukon Jack Jacapple.

My most recent review was of Royal Crown Peach flavored whiskey.  Good stuff!

Jack Daniel's Tennessee AppleToday's tasting is Jack Daniel's Tennessee Apple.  How will it stack up to my favorite flavored whiskey, Yukon Jack Jacapple?

Released just this week, the new spirit is the classic whiskey mixed with apple liqueur, which in my humble, flavored whiskey opinion is THE best spirit flavor pairing there is.

Here's the description from Jack Daniel's Master Distiller Jeff Arnett.  “Tennessee Apple couples the character of our Jack Daniel's Tennessee Whiskey with the taste of crisp, green apples. It’s like a freshly picked apple in a glass of Jack.”

And he nailed it.  Sampling the whiskey in a straight shot and on the rocks, it's very clean and does indeed taste like a freshly picked apple in a glass of Jack.   You get a nice apple whiff in the nose, the swirl has enticing color and the swallow is crisp green apple, followed by the rich Jack Daniel's Whiskey boldness in the finish.  This is a very well balanced blend of whiskey and apple, perfectly smooth, nicely done Jack!

Costing me about $14 for a 350ml bottle, this 70 proof offering is priced at the higher end of flavored whiskeys but it's well worth it and is most definitely a repeat buy.  In fact, it may have displaced Yukon Jack Jacapple as my favorite, I'm not sure yet, I may have to do a side-by-side taste test comparison.......
