Jack Daniel’s Releases Special Small Batch Version Coy Hill High Proof
LYNCHBURG, Tenn.– Jack Daniel’s Distillery presents the very limited Jack Daniel’s Small Batch Special Release Coy Hill High Proof in 375ml bottles available only in Tennessee. Aged in the highest parts of the barrels of Coy Hill, the highest elevation at the Jack Daniel’s Distillery, this Tennessee whiskey is bottled at proof points ranging from 143.6 to 155.1.
During the bottling of Single Barrel Special Release 2021 Coy Hill High Proof, approximately 55 barrels were found where the angel’s share – the whiskey lost due to evaporation – was so high that the liquid at the interior could not be bottled as Single Barrel selections. The high level of evaporation resulted in a unique flavor and character as well as better proof. Casks were instead grouped by profile to create Jack Daniel’s Small Batch Special Release Coy High Proof, comprising five unique batches at 143.6, 147.3, 149.8, 153.2 and 155.1 proof – the whiskeys toughest ever to come out of Jack Daniel’s.
“When we found these casks in our Coy Hill barrels, we immediately knew we had something special. But due to the very low yield and incredibly high indices, we had to get creative with how we bottled these last few drops,” said Jack Daniel’s Master Distiller Chris Fletcher. “We grouped the barrels together to create unique five-point test profiles highlighting the characteristics of this special liquid and developed a new higher compression cap specially designed for this expression. It’s an exciting time at Jack Daniel’s as we continue to drive innovation and experimentation in our whiskey making while showcasing all that the Jack Daniel’s Distillery has to offer.
Jack Daniel’s Small Batch Special Release Coy Hill High Proof has an aroma of burnt sugar, baked fruit and oak with notes of rich molasses and concentrated barrel spice with bold oak. The finish is long and ample with layers of arctic char, dried fruit and caramel.
Jack Daniel’s Small Batch Special Release Coy Hill High Proof has a mash bill of 80% corn, 12% malted barley and 8% rye and ranges from 143.6 to 155.1 proof (71.8% to 77 .55% abv). The 375ml bottles will be available in very limited quantities in Tennessee and at Jack Daniel Distillery’s White Rabbit Bottle Shop beginning July 1 with a suggested retail price of $55.
Due to the high resistance of the barrel, the bottle must remain upright at all times, unless poured into a glass to enjoy.
