    Jack Daniel's Limited Edition 100 Proof

    Just got the email alert from SV. Looks like JD is coming out with a LE 100 proof. Couldn't find any info on it (neither could SV). I am a bit intrigued.. any one heard anything about this?

    Just saw this email as well. Is 10% more alcohol really worth double the price?

    I guess the important question is, which floors of the warehouse did these barrels come from? Seeing that's how JD decides what goes into which marque

    Another important question: single barrel or batch?

    if it's anything like the Silver Select 100 proof that they do for export, I will be very happy. good stuff indeed.

    If its double the price of the 80 proof, then its the same general price as a Silver Select at duty free!

    The only difference between this and standard issue Old No. 7 is the proof.

    Re: Jack Daniel's Limited Edition 100 Proof

    Silver Select is Single Barrel. If it's Single Barrel, then it's Silver Select. If it's not, then it's a standard commemorative, which means it's Old No. 7 at a higher proof.

    The point is that Daniel's doesn't do any special selections for its commemorative or limited edition bottlings, except single barrels which are by their nature specially selected. A non-single barrel LE is run of the mill Old No. 7, just less diluted (which is not nothing).
