The Jack Daniel Distillery in Lynchburg, Tennessee has announced the first super premium line extension in 25 years with the introduction of Jack Daniel’s Bonded Tennessee Whiskey and Jack Daniel’s Triple Mash Blended Straight Whiskey. The Bonded Series honors the distilleries whiskey making excellence and will be a permanent extension in the Jack Daniel’s family of brands.
As is required for all Bottled-in-Bond whiskies both Jack Daniel’s Bonded and Triple Mash are bottled at 100 proof (50% ABV). The packaging was inspired by the original design of the 1895 Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey bottle. As required by the Bottled in Bond Act of 1897, a bonded whiskey must be distilled by a single distiller during a single season, matured in a government bonded warehouse for at least four years and bottled at 100 proof.
“The Jack Daniel Distillery has been making exceptional American whiskey to the highest standards for generations, before and after the Bottled in Bond Act, dating back to the days of Mr. Jack himself,” said Chris Fletcher, Jack Daniel’s Master Distiller. “Jack Daniel’s Bonded and Triple Mash are a nod to our heritage with a touch of innovation and craftsmanship. These whiskeys are another opportunity for both our friends and new drinkers to explore and discover everything Jack Daniel’s has to offer.”

Jack Daniel’s Bonded Tennessee Whiskey
The first release is a standard Jack Daniel’ whiskey with their standard mash bill recipe of 80% corn, 12% malted barley, and 8% rye. What makes it a bit different is following the Bottled-in-Bond guidelines. The distillery says these barrels were hand selected for their unique and characteristics of deeper color, flavor, and aroma, which bring a darker, richer, and more oak-forward character to Jack Daniel’s Bonded. It is a big, bold Tennessee Whiskey at 100 proof with layered notes of caramel, rich oak, and spice giving way to a pleasantly lingering finish.
Jack Daniel’s Triple Mash Blended Straight Whiskey
This second release is a bit more interesting since it uses more than one whiskey but they too followed all the guidelines to be qualified as a Bottled-in-Bond whiskey. The Jack Daniel’s Triple Mash is a blend of three straight Bottled-In-Bond whiskeys.
- 60% Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Rye
- 20% Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey
- 20% Jack Daniel’s American Malt
Each expression is distilled in Lynchburg, Tennessee, in the same distilling season, aged to the stipulations of the Bottled in Bond Act, then blended and bottled at 100 proof. It’s a remarkable whiskey that can only be crafted by a complete distillery like Jack Daniel’s. Jack Daniel’s Triple Mash has pleasant notes of honey, malt, and soft oak leading to a long lasting well-rounded finish.
