Jack Daniel’s has been on a roll over the past few years, releasing different expressions that are vastly different from its core Old No. 7 Tennessee whiskey. Two of the best of these brand extensions are the 10- and 12-year-old whiskeys, the first age statement products from Jack in over a century.

Jack Daniel’s 10-Year-Old Tennessee Whiskey is now on its third batch, having been first released in 2021. The 12-Year-Old was added to the lineup last year, making this year’s release the second batch. Both are part of what the distillery calls its Aged Series (which could include even older whiskeys in the future). “Our Jack Daniel’s Aged Series has given us the opportunity to produce modern whiskeys that simultaneously capture the essence of the liquid Mr. Jack created over 150 years ago,” said master distiller Chris Fletcher in a statement. “These releases embody the artistry, passion and craftsmanship that define Jack Daniel’s legacy, and I’m excited for our friends to enjoy this year’s batches of special whiskeys.”

According to the distillery, while there are slight variations between the batches, the flavor profile remains a through-line. Official tasting notes for the ten-year-old include pipe tobacco, oak, and butterscotch on the palate, while the 12-year-old is said to be more oak-forward and have notes of fruit and cocoa. Both were matured in new charred oak barrels, initially on the upper levels of the warehouses before being moved down to lower levels to extend the aging process in a cooler environment. The mashbill is the same one as Old No. 7—80 percent corn, 12 percent malted barley, eight percent rye—and the whiskey was filtered through charcoal before barreling, part of the Lincoln County process that defines Tennessee whiskey.

Batch two of the 12-year-old (SRP $95) and batch three of the ten-year-old (SRP $85) are both available now in limited amounts nationwide (these come in 700-ml bottles instead of 750-ml). Unfortunately, you might have to pay a lot more than these asking prices if you find them available to purchase online, but check websites like ReserveBar to see if they are in stock—they might expensive, but they are great whiskeys.
