Jack Daniel's   
Jack Daniel Distillery  ·  Lynchburg, TN
We do things a little differently around here – and that’s what gives Jack Daniel’s its distinctive character. We charcoal mellow our whiskey drop by drop, then let it age in our own handcrafted barrels. And we don’t follow a calendar. Our Tennessee Sippin’ Whiskey is ready only when our tasters say it is. We use our senses, just like Jack Daniel himself did. In fact, more than a century later, our Tennessee Whiskey is still judged the same way. By the way it looks. By the way it smells. And, of course, by the way it tastes. 80 Proof

Maker's 46   
The first line extension to the Maker's Mark range since the '50s, Maker's 46 is essentially the standard expression with added spice. This was not intended to compete with the core expression, instead it's a cousin to it, something different for those that like spicy bourbon. They add this extra dimension by inserting seared French oak staves into the barrels (with the stave profile "number 46" - thus the name). Nose: Toffee sweetness, fresh cut wood, very toasty aroma, with sweet spices & deep, thick caramel. Palate: Creamy, very soft. Then explodes with spiciness on the tip of the tongue. Also, nutmeg, mulled wine spices, allspice, cinnamon. Finish: Sweet spices that concentrates on the tongue.

Mike Barfield Living Stereo (Tater Tot) Mike Barfield's longtime band the Hollisters always had a dash of R&B in with their Texas twang. On this solo outing, Barfield goes whole-hog in the direction of Memphis and Muscle Shoals, and not surprisingly, he's a pretty fair contender in the blue-eyed soul category.
