Jack Daniels Single Barrel Coy Hill Barrel Proof
Jack Daniel’s Old No. 7, the most frequently sold whiskey in the United States, is released at 80 proof and sells for about $25 a bottle. The Coy Hill High Proof is 75% stronger in terms of alcohol content and sells for nearly three times as much, but comes from the same mash bill of 80% corn, 12% malted barley, and 8% rye.
The special release is also put through the same charcoal filtering that is Jack Daniel Distillery’s hallmark, a process that is supposed to mellow the whiskey. (In order to appeal to most whiskey drinkers, it will probably need mellowing at this alcohol level.)
The Coy Hill High Proof is said to come from the top ricks of the barrel houses in Lynchburg, Tenn. The suggestion is that the high heat in those locations creates an intense interaction with the wood in the barrels – and evaporates enough water to bring up the alcohol content. There’s no age statement on the bottle, but Jack Daniel says the Coy Hill High Proof was aged for nine years. That’s three years more than JD’s standard Single Barrel Barrel Proof.
Appearance: Very dark, the color of brown crayon. In a white mug, you would be forgiven for mistaking it for coffee.
Nose: Tangy molasses, cinnamon, blackberries, maple syrup, and maybe a hint of dill and dark chocolate. If you give this whiskey air for a few minutes, it isn’t overly hot. The ethanol is there, but it’s not overwhelming.
Palate: The high heat from the alcohol content comes through in your mouth much more than it does in your nose. Make no mistake: At 148 proof, this is whiskey to put hair on your chest. The sweet and alternately chocolatey/fruity taste of a Tootsie Roll came to mind, plus brown sugar, kettle corn, and Red Hots candies. The finish is sugary and relatively long.
