    Post Jack Daniel's Rested Rye

    jackdanielsrestedrye.jpg
    Didn't even know this one was coming:

    Jack Daniel's Rested Rye (Whiskey) - aged 2 years (2 full seasons) in light char oak barrels. It's the same liquid that was released in the JD Unaged Rye but now 2 years old. Now at 2 years it qualifies as a "Straight Whiskey" so there won't be a big debate about what to call it (Although JD is referring to it as "Rested Tennessee Rye".

    Released at 80 Proof in Limited Quantities starting in April. $50 a bottle.

    It's very much a work in progress release and priced very high (is the final JD Rye going to be this expensive?!?!).

    Here's the complete Jack Daniel's Rested Rye Review, but the short version is, it's not worth buying.

    That's a very pretty bottle.

    Now where did I put my ugly bottle of 90 Proof George Dickel Rye? Oh...over there in the brown bag with a receipt for $21.99.

    More like Resisted Rye. Which I'll easily be able to do.

    It will be interesting to see how the final product turns out. I know Dickel doesn't use the Lincoln County process for its rye, but does JD?

    I could care less about buying into the JD fandom but having bought a bottle of the unaged rye out of curiosity I will likely buy one of these to compare and contrast despite the pretty ridiculous price. It is interesting that two years of aging apparently has no value as it is the same excessive price tag the completely unaged rye carried.

    Buying this can't be too much dumber than other things I have bought! Woodford Master's Collection bottles come to mind...

    Didn't they have a $50 price on the white version of this when it first came out?

    You know that an aged version will be an extra $50 for each 2 yrs, so 4 yr will be $100, 6 yr $150, etc

    They are really in love with 80 proof but then again they aren't targeting us.

    Dickel does filter there rye through maple charcoal but rather than doing it before it is barreled like the whiskey they do it after they buy it from MGP and before they bottle it. For that matter the first time the GD Rye sees Tennessee is when the bottles hit the store shelves! then again it doesn't say "Tennessee Rye" on the label as I recall.

    My recollection is that JD rye is treated essentially the same way the standard JD whiskey is wih the usual charcoal maple filtering before barreling but I am not sure. The light sweetness of the unaged rye would seem to suggest it is and on a quick search this blog notes it is as well.
