Jack Daniel’s 27 Gold Tennessee Whiskey

One of the advantages of international travel is choosing which spirits to bring back home at travel retail prices. Another perk is purchasing spirits that are exclusive to travel retail, or duty free as it more commonly known.

Australian Customs currently allows 2.25 L of alcohol per adult so it helps to choose wisely.

Jack Daniel’s 27 Gold Tennessee Whiskey is a spirit that is only available duty free in the Asia Pacific region. The whiskey is a premium expression of the popular Old No.7 Tennessee, double barrelled and twice mellowed through sugar maple charcoal. The second round of maturation takes place in golden-hued maple barrels which give the whiskey its distinctive character.

The 700ml bottle comes in an elegant gold packaging. The liquid is bright gold in colour and on the nose, it has a aromas of maples, honey and fruit. Creamy and viscous on the palate, there is a hint of toasted oak, vanilla, maple notes and little spice leading to a smooth and warming finish with a hint of sweetness.

Jack Daniel’s 27 Gold Tennessee Whiskey is available from Nuance Australia’s Sydney Airport’s Terminal 1 and Melbourne duty free stores at AUD $94.99. Tastings are available in both cities’ departure stores until the end of April 2014.

  • […] Jack Daniel’s No.27 Gold (40% ABV) is double mellowed like Gentleman Jack but has also been finished for one year in maple barrels after spending four to seven years in oak barrels. This brings rich sweet aromas and on the palate this is a very soft and delicate expression with a creamier mouthfeel and brown sugar notes in the finish.
