Jack Daniels Single Barrel- Barrel Proof Whiskey

Jack Daniels Single Barrel-Barrel Proof is on my Top Shelf. Even at a shockingly high ABV of 65.85%, it is smooth and mellow. I do not recommend it for the faint of heart. I loved how every sip of this robust drink tells a story, most beautiful color, amazing aroma, and flavor & finish to match. What else would you need on a quality whiskey? 
In today's blog, I intend to uncover the following-
1. Brief history of this whiskey
2. Tasting notes
3. SJ's Rating
4. SJ's pro tip

Jack Daniels established in 1864 has a legacy of over 150 years so it has superior products not limited to the stereotype of "Jack & Coke". It has some top-of-the-line whiskies that are meant to be savored. This is definitely one of them. I have also reviewed Jack Daniels Single Barrel Select, which is another amazing product. 
Reads the product story "Whiskey as nature intended it- bottled straight from the barrel at its full proof. Intense, smooth & remarkably varied, Barrel Proof is bottled anywhere from 125 to 140 proof(62.5-70%ABV), taking Jack's trademark vanilla and toasted oak flavor to bold new levels. Barrel Proof simply means the whisky is bottled straight from the barrel without adding any water. This is very exciting because every barrel is different and has a uniqueness to it. Enough talk, now it's time to for my tasting notes. Enjoy!
