    Jack Daniels Unaged Rye

    Who has purchased a bottle? What do you think? I think JD is onto something but it just needs some age. Unaged is intesting - Tequilla on the nose, grainy sweetness in the mouth and neutral spririts/tequilla in the finish - for me. Age it for 3-5 years and bottle at 90-100 proof and I think I will consider buying - price point on unaged is WAY off - $50 when it should be $25-$30...

    I think you did but someone else may want to double check that. I personally would like to try some unaged rye but not $50 interested.

    It's not supposed to be in stores until next month, though I've heard it's been spotted in Tennessee. I do believe $50 is the suggested retail. I'm most interested to see if they're still classing it as 'neutral spirit,' and what other producers will do with that little anomaly.

    They're producing so little of it that they'll probably sell it all to the people who would buy piss for $50 a bottle if the label said 'Jack Daniel's.'

    This looks just like all my tequila tasting notes.

    Yep. It's the greatest whiskey on Earth, ya know.

    I don't hate JD at all, but I sure don't understand the popularity it has. No way I would ever pay $50.00 for unaged whisk(e)y of any kind. I'm a big fan of JDSB, but I have a hard time paying $40.00 for it.

    Piss in a bottle, what an appropriate image.

    Sounds like someone named Jack is about to be bus-ted!

    Jack Daniels Unaged Rye

    I saw guys in two different stores (in TN) buying this buy the case today (and many other people buying multiple bottles). Store owners were amazed that I was there looking for whiskey, but passed on the JD rye. Some stores I visited had sold out already. Maybe it's the early novelty, but this product seems to be moving.
