Bottled at 90 proof, and made with unique “Sinatra Barrels”, Jack Daniel’s Sinatra Select pays tribute to Jack’s biggest fan: Mr. Frank Sinatra. These Sinatra barrels have deep grooves on the inside of the staves — which exposes the whiskey to extra layers of oak. This imparts a rich amber color, bold character and a pleasant smokiness, followed by an incredibly smooth vanilla finish. Much like Frank himself, this whiskey is one of a kind.
Frank Sinatra was a long time fan of Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey and was often seen sipping a glass of it on stage while singing ‘Fly Me To The Moon’ or ‘My Way’. He even kept a stash of the classic whiskey on his private plane to enjoy while on the way to his next show, which would certainly beat a plastic cup of warm wine any day.
Jack Daniel’s Sinatra Select has been created in honour of this friendship with Old Blue Eyes. The bold, smooth qualities of the Sinatra Select come from the specially made Sinatra barrels in which part of the whiskey was aged. Deep grooves were cut into the staves of the casks, increasing the amount of exposure the whiskey had to the wood. It is then married with Jack Daniel’s Old No. 7 and bottled at 45% abv, which is how Sinatra would have enjoyed it back in the day.
Nose: Soft honey, fresh apples and a bold oak note at the centre.
Palate: Yummy butterscotch notes which turn into yummier caramel notes, rich and warm. Hints of orange zest and a subtle smokiness.
Finish: Packed with vanilla and smooth as Sinatra’s voice.
Overall: Frank could easily have been looking into the future at the Sinatra Select when he sung ‘The Best Is Yet To Come’, but it’s here now for you to enjoy!
