Last Updated on March 2, 2024 by Lydia Martin

Jack Daniel’s Tennessee whiskey has been serving connoisseurs and impressing beginners with its top-of-the-line spirits. 

In fact, numerous Jack Daniel’s bottles have been introduced, enticing whiskey lovers. But with all the Jack Daniel’s releases, which do you think is best?

We took the time to rank the best Jack Daniels whiskey bottles to show you how impressive their lineup is. Let’s proceed. 

Top 30 Jack Daniel’s Whiskey Bottles (Ranked) 

30. Jack Daniel’s Unaged Tennessee Rye Whiskey

Bottle of Jack Daniel's Unaged Tennessee Rye Whiskey, best jack daniels whiskey

Average Price: approx. $52/750ml (Drizly)

Alcohol Content: 40% ABV 

Why We Like It: Hat’s off to Jack Daniel’s Rye expressions, this whiskey is the best if you want a good drink to mix with. We like its white dog rye taste and vanilla flavors.

The aromas are malty, filled with wet grains, and the palate is packed with green herbs. But we’re surprised with the floral hints on the finish.

“We’re in 170 countries, and in a way, Jack Daniel’s has become generic for ‘whiskey.'”

— Nelson Eddy, Brand Historian

Quick fact: This unaged Tennessee rye whiskey is the first release of the Jack Daniel’s Distillery, using a new grain mash since Prohibition.

29. Winter Jack Tennessee Cider

Winter Jack Tennessee Cider Bottle and A Glasses, best jack daniels whiskey

Average Price: approx. $18.99 (MSRP)

Alcohol Content: 15% ABV

Why We Like It: Since we’re a fan of apple cider and a hot toddy, we’ve made this Jack Daniel’s Winter Jack Cider our best buddy, especially during the cold season.  

Aside from the warmth this whiskey provides, we like its holiday spices (or winter pie spice, for some), including nutmeg, cinnamon, clove, ginger, and allspice. 

If the JD’s Tennessee Apple and Tennessee Fire is overly sweet for you, we suggest trying this Winter Tennessee instead.

But make sure not to forget this bottle, as it’s only a seasonal release. 

28. Holiday Select (2011 – 2014)

Jack Daniels Holiday Select 2011 Bottle and a Box

Average Price: approx. $49.95/750ml (MSRP)

Alcohol Content: 48%-50% ABV

Why We Like It: These Holiday Select series are crafted from the barrels Jack Daniels used to produce their Holiday Barrel Tree. 

From the 2011-2014 Holiday Select expressions, the toasted oak and baking spice notes are dominant. 

But we especially love the 2014 version due to its rich tasting notes that a truly single barrel can offer.

Anyone could clearly see the expertise of Master Distiller Jeff Arnett in this holiday offering.

27. Eric Church Single Barrel Select

Eric Church Single Barrel Select Bottle

Average Price: approx. $60/750ml (MSRP)

Alcohol Content: 47% ABV 

Why We Like It: This Jack Daniel’s single barrel select, Eric Church, has the right notes anyone would want to find in a whiskey. 

As Jack Daniels claims, it’s a one-of-a-kind expression, and that’s evident as we like the notes of caramel and vanilla in this whiskey. 

What we’re impressed with the most is the long-lasting toasted oak note on the finish. It’s an extraordinary experience– trust us when we say you shouldn’t miss it.  

26. Jack Daniel’s Rested Tennessee Rye Whiskey

Average Price: approx. $55/750ml (Drizly)

Alcohol Content: 40% ABV

Why We Like It: The barrels used to craft this JD’s Rested Tennessee Rye is hand-selected meticulously. We’re not surprised as we get the vanilla, sweetgrass, and pancake batter hints. 

What’s interesting is the Cherry Coke notes at first, then soon turns into Cherry root beer, slowly fading towards a vaguely watery finish. 

Overall, this Jack Daniel’s expression is quite nice– perfect for mixing, and this tastes great with Coke or sparkling water. 

25. Tennessee Straight Rye Whiskey

Jack Daniel's Tennessee Rye Whiskey Bottle and a glass

Average Price: approx. $27/750ml (Drizly)

Alcohol Content: 45% ABV

Why We Like It: This classic Jack is a simple drink– but what we find special is its unique rye spice as a result of its signature charcoal mellowing process. 

And this Jack Daniel’s rye didn’t disappoint. Yes, it’s a spicy whiskey, but no one will argue how smooth this is on the finish– a nice sipping whiskey

It won’t stand out among the JD’s expressions, but it’s worth trying.  

24. Master Distiller Series No. 1 – 6

Average Price: approx. $32/750ml (Drizly)

Alcohol Content: 43% ABV 

Why We Like It: The Master Distiller Series of Jack Daniel’s is full of honor and pride.

We like how they pay homage to the master distillers who served the brand throughout the years, including: 

  • Jack “Newton” Daniel (Founder)
  • Jess Motlow 
  • Lemuel “Lem” Tolley
  • Jess Gamble
  • Frank Bobo
  • Jimmy Bedford 

Each bottle in the series has distinct flavors, but the common denominator is the flavors of vanilla, caramel, and a hint of banana.   

23. River Boat Captain

Jack Daniel’s Vintage Collector Riverboat Captain’s Bottle

Average Price: approx. $29.99/750ml (MSRP)

Alcohol Content: 45% ABV 

Why We Like It: We see JD very sentimental in its history, so this River Boat Captain was released.

This honors the river boats and the commanding captains during the time of Jack Daniel.

It’s very rare nowadays, and so is the price, but given the history that this bottle carries– it makes a priced possession to whiskey lovers, particularly JD fanatics. 

Besides, it has a nuance of flavors; citric, chocolate, dried fruit, and honey, with leather, molasses, tobacco, and vanilla notes.

22. Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Travelers Bold & Spicy Tennessee Straight Rye Whiskey

Average Price: approx. $23/750ml (MSRP)

Alcohol Content: 53.5% ABV 

Why We Like It: The best Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Rye whiskey couldn’t be completed without mentioning this Travelers Bold & Spicy Straight Rye. 

It is high-proof, with baking spices and caramel dominating the tasting notes. But there’s more beyond that.

As it develops, there’s an enticing blend of soft and sweet fruit layered with rye oak and rye spice.

It isn’t the same whiskey as the other Travelers series, as it’s peppery on the finish.

We highly suggest this to experienced drinkers accustomed to complex and spicy spirits.   

21. Single Barrel Special Release Heritage Barrel

Jack Daniel's Heritage Barrel Special Release bottle

Average Price: approx. $64.99/750ml (MSRP)

Alcohol Content: 50% ABV 

Why We Like It: One of the special offerings from Jack Daniel’s is this Heritage Special Release, a smooth sipper. 

It is close to perfection; it’s just that the mild burn on the finish is a little off, and we find the oak and baking spices too intense and nuanced. 

But for drinkers who like bold and deep notes, this is a perfect dram. Also, there’s a hint of rum in this Jack Daniel’s expression, making this much more interesting. 

20. Red Dog Saloon Limited Edition Sour Mash

Jack Daniel's Red Dog Saloon 125th Anniversary Edition

Average Price: approx. $28.99/750ml (MSRP)

Alcohol Content: 43% ABV 

Why We Like It: One word to describe Jack Daniel’s Red Dog – Sumptuous. 

At first, we thought the profile with notes of maple syrup was light and mellow, but it wasn’t.

It’s actually aggressive, so this Jack Daniel’s expression is suitable for a night sip or after a long day at work. 

In short, there’s this strong kick of burn and alcohol, although it’s low-proof compared to other Jack Daniel’s whiskeys.

But it’s a good experience, though— unique and splendid.  

19. Jack Daniel’s Bottled-In-Bond Travelers’ Exclusive

Jack Daniels Bottled in Bond Whiskey

Average Price: approx. $38/750ml (MSRP)

Alcohol Content: 50% ABV 

Why We Like It: This exclusive Jack Daniel’s Bonded whiskey is rich and bold. You’ll first notice the Hostess Cherry Pie aroma, followed by the caramel and hint of banana flavors. 

The vanilla and charred wood flavor start to flow as it coats your mouth.

We like the creamy finish of this Jack Daniel’s bonded, along with the classic smoothness of Jack’s spirits.

It’s a good value Tennessee whiskey [1]– reasonably priced for what it provides.

If you’re not fond of high-proof spirits, we suggest you mix it with cocktails or have it on the rocks.     

18. Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey Green Label

Bottle of Jack Daniel's Green Label

Average Price: approx. $26/750ml (Drizly)

Alcohol Content: 40% ABV 

Why We Like It: If you don’t mind younger Jack Daniel’s whiskeys, you’ll surely love this Green Label.

Though it’s challenging to find this Jack Daniel bottle, it’s really worth the effort. 

We like the mildness of this whiskey in terms of complexity and flavor profile. It isn’t overly sweet.

The cherry, vanilla, and rich oak flavors blend well on the mouth, filled with a soft finish.

This is great for Old-Fashioned, and we also tried mixing it with canned cocktails, and the results were satisfying and delicious (given it’s a lighter whiskey).  

17. Sinatra Select

Jack Daniel's Sinatra Select Bottle with liquor Bottles on the background

Average Price: approx. $165/750ml (MSRP)

Alcohol Content: 45% ABV 

Why We Like It: Jack Daniel’s Sinatra Select [2] is a throwback to how JD spirits were made during the heydays of Frank Sinatra days, who turned out to be a super big fan of Jack Daniel’s.

“I’m very pleased to continue to be a part of the Jack Daniel’s family and feel the introduction of Sinatra Select is an appropriate tribute as we near my father’s 100th birthday in 2015.”

— Frank Sinatra, Jr., Legendary Singer

JD even used their special “Sinatra Barrels,” with concentric grooves carved within the virgin charred oak barrels.

Sinatra Select is blended with the authentic Old No. 7 and bottled at 90-proof. 

We enjoy the combination of the subtle vanilla pod aroma and the cherry tobacco flavor.

The leather then appears and adds more oaky and woody notes, culminating in a silken finish.

16. No. 27 Gold

Jack Daniel's No. 27 Gold Bottle

Average Price: approx. $110/750ml (Drizly)

Alcohol Content: 40% ABV 

Why We Like It: We like this classic Jack Daniel’s with a twist. It uses new American oak as the first barrel, then double-barreled using maple wood tanks to finish aging.

It’s surprisingly great for a low-proof spirit– no watery elements, leaving a deep yet familiar profile. 

The tasting notes are nice, giving a warm cornbread aroma, followed by vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg flavors on the palate.

We like the full finish with rich oak and cherry tobacco hints.  

15. Single Barrel Select

Man Holding Bottle of Jack Daniel's Single Barrel Select

Average Price: approx. $55/750ml (Drizly)

Alcohol Content: 47% ABV 

Why We Like It: Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel Select is a signature offering of JD. 

The subtle layers of baking spice and caramel are nice, and we like the bright fruit notes with sweet aromatics– which is unique for a Tenessee whiskey. 

This isn’t your bold Tenessee whiskey, but its robust character is enough to impress fanatics and liquor drinkers.

The toasted wood note on the finish highlights this whiskey, which will get you even more.   

14. Tennessee Honey

Jack Daniel's Tennessee Honey Liqueur Bottle

Average Price: approx. $24.99/750ml (MSRP)

Alcohol Content: 35% ABV 

Why We Like It: Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Honey is crafted from the honey liqueur and JD’s Tennessee whiskey.

As expected, the notes of honey are dominant here, but it has an extra smooth finish.

But we don’t expect the notes of vanilla ice cream on the palate. This flavored whiskey is an original recipe of JD and is finely crafted, which is evident in its character. 

13. Sour Mash Legacy Edition Series

Jack Daniel's Old No. 7 Legacy Edition Bottle on a wooden table

Average Price: approx. $24.99/750ml (MSRP)

Alcohol Content: 43% ABV 

Why We Like It: This Legacy Edition Series of Jack Daniel’s throwbacks their legendary Old No. 7 whiskey; this series embodies the brand’s history– from its fast to the present. 

Expressions like this are sought-after, especially by whiskey collectors. But apart from being a great collectible, it’s a nice sipping drink.

The trademark flavors of JD are apparent, and it’s smooth and soft. 

Since this is rare whiskey, we can say Jack Daniel’s Triple Mash whiskey is the best alternative. 

12. Single Barrel 100 Proof

Close Up Shot of Jack Daniels Single barrel 100 proof Bottle

Average Price: approx. $70/750ml (Drizly)

Alcohol Content: 50% ABV 

Why We Like It: Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel 100 Proof is a bonded whiskey with full depth and complexity of flavors.

But despite its rich and bold tasting notes, it’s smooth and aromatic. 

Whether neat, mixed or on the rocks, the flavors shine, which we find unique.

But don’t get JD wrong in this one, as there are slight differences in tasting notes bottle by bottle. 

11. Single Barrel 2021 Special Release Coy Hill High Proof

hand Holding Jack Daniels Coy Hill Bottle

Average Price: approx. $70/750ml (MSRP)

Alcohol Content: 70.65% ABV 

Why We Like It: If you’re a fan of high-proof whiskeys, you’ll get excited with this one.

Another Jack Daniel’s barrel-proof expression is this Coy Hill High Proof, a special offering for loyal fans.

Coy Hill is so far the highest-proof whiskey from Jack Daniel’s, but surprisingly, the aromas are soothing– very smooth.

The flavor profile is deep, as expected, but what we like the most is it’s not overwhelmed by the alcohol’s burn. 

Without the high proof, it’s an easy drink, but the alcohol content makes this Jack Daniel’s bottle a sought-after one. 

10. Tennessee Whiskey (10)

Average Price: approx. $199/750ml (Drizly)

Alcohol Content: 48.5% ABV 

Why We Like It: Released in 2020, Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey 10 redefines the brand. It is well-refined but still maintains the accessibility of JD bottles. 

This is one of the best bottles to try for someone who enjoys sipping whiskey neat.

The nose has a rich and complex combination of cherry syrup, apple cores, and sticky toffee. 

The palate then opens to reveal dark fruit and a combination of tobacco and dried corn husks. The finish isn’t long, and we enjoy the slightly savory edge.  

9. Tennessee Fire

Hand Holding Bottler of Jack Daniel's Tennessee Fire

Average Price: approx. $25.99/750ml (MSRP)

Alcohol Content: 35%

Why We Like It: As you can see from its name, “Fire,” Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Fire can make you feel like hell.

There’s clear heat and burn (so we don’t recommend this to beginners), but naturally, though. 

We tried sipping this neat, which made us understand why it’s used mainly for cocktails. It ranks this high because it’s a good alternative to the expensive and rare No. 27 Gold. 

Also, it’s crafted with real cinnamon, giving it a slightly sweet taste with a hint of caramel.

If you’re into cinnamon and whiskey, we recommend this one (just don’t forget the heat).   

8. 100 Proof Bottled In Bond

jack daniel's 100 Proof Bottled In Bond

Average Price: approx. $37.99/750ml (MSRP)

Alcohol Content: 50% ABV 

Why We Like It: For frequent travelers out there, lucky you, as this 100 Proof Bottled-in-Bond from JD is available solely in Duty-Free stores in your local airport. 

For spoilers, it’s filled with concentrated flavors along with a fuller body, which is impressive.

Of course, we enjoy the signature notes of JD: banana, oak, and maple syrup. 

But, it was enhanced by toasted peanuts and russet apple notes. If you’re a true fan of Jack Daniel, you’ll find a way to buy this bottle. 

Quick Fact: In 1987, the Bottled-in-Bond Act was passed, which requires distillers to meet certain requirements when aging and bottling whiskeys. 

7. Single Barrel: Barrel Proof

Bottle of Single Barrel Barrel Proof Bottle on a wooden table

Average Price: approx. $70/750ml (Drizly)

Alcohol Content: 64.5% ABV (may vary by the bottle)

Why We Like It: For those into high-proof whiskey, this is all you’ve been waiting for. Jack Daniel’s Singel Barrel (Barrel Proof) is bottled straight from the barrel at over 120 proof. 

What we love about this is it’s an enhanced version of the classic Jack Daniel’s toasted oak and vanilla flavors.

This barrel-proof, bold Tennessee whiskey has brown sugar and dark spice notes. 

It’s a truly robust whiskey yet a smooth drink that any experienced drinker would appreciate.

If you’re a beginner, you might get overwhelmed with its complexity and proof, but there’s no harm in trying. 

6. White Rabbit Saloon Limited Edition Sour Mash

jack daniel's White Rabbit Saloon Limited Edition Sour Mash Bottle Label

Average Price: approx. $31/750ml (Drizly)

Alcohol Content: 43% ABV 

Why We Like It: White Rabbit Saloon’s unique profile is one of its strong characteristics.

It gives the signature Jack Daniel’s banana notes, with coffee and gingerbread hints. 

This is a must-try for anyone who enjoys smoky bacon and a stroopwafel finish. It was launched ahead of the Jack Daniel Red Dog and is only available in Kentucky and selected retailers overseas.  

Tip: If you’re looking for another JD expression within the same tasting level, we recommend Jack Daniel’s Triple Mash as the best alternative to White Rabbit Saloon. 

5. Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Travelers Sweet & Oaky Straight Tennessee Whiskey

hand Holding Jack Daniels Sweet and Oaky Bottle

Average Price: approx. $23/750ml (MSRP)

Alcohol Content: 53.5% ABV 

Why We Like It: Another special offering from Jack Daniels is this Sweet & Oaky Tennessee whiskey, which we find heat subtle and flavors intensive, with a clean and creamy finish.

We’re impressed with its balanced character and medium body– the opposite of the Bold & Spicy variation. 

Since it’s quite high-proof, we love adding this to cocktails like whiskey sour. It truly embodies how well Jack Daniels can create interesting whiskeys. 

4. Gentleman Jack

Jack Daniel's Gentleman Jack Bottle and a glass on top of barrel

Average Price: approx. $34/750ml (Drizly)

Alcohol Content: 40% ABV 

Why We Like It: Gentleman Jack is extraordinarily smooth, double-sugar-maple-charcoal mellowed Tennessee whiskey—one of our favorites among Jack Daniel’s Tennessee selection.

Anyone will like its subtle character, which is a great sipper, especially over ice. Besides, Gentleman Jack shines through cocktails, particularly Old-Fashioneds and Manhattans. 

If Old No. 7 is perfect, Gentleman Jack is close to it. Our favorite part is the sweet caramel finish with vanilla and banana hints.  

3. Single Barrel Rye

Jack Daniel's Single Barrel Rye bottle

Average Price: approx. $55/750ml (Drizly)

Alcohol Content: 45% ABV 

Why We Like It: One of the best Jack Daniels whiskey is this Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel Rye– their first-ever new grain bill after 150 years. 

Its 70% rye grain bill and the aging process in charred oak barrels create a pleasant rye spice with a mild tiki cocktail note. 

The vanilla and pepper notes, along with the cherry and maple syrup flavors, end on a warming yet bright finish.

For this reason, it’s our go-to cocktail base, particularly for Sazeracs and Manhattan. 

2. Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Apple

Hand Holding Jack Daniels Tennessee Apple Whiskey Bottle

Average Price: approx. $26.99/750ml (MSRP)

Alcohol Content: 35% ABV 

Why We Like It: Our favorite flavored whiskey is Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Apple. This isn’t your typical sipping whiskey to end your day, and we like it as we love cocktails. 

Yes, just as most reviews say, it’s really sweet, and that’s evident in its super good and vibrant aroma.

The sweetness lingers long, so it’s more of a dessert whiskey (in our POV). 

1. Jack Daniel’s Old No. 7

Jack Daniel's Old No. 7 Bottle and glass of  Cocktail Drink

Average Price: approx. $26/750ml (Drizly)

Alcohol Content: 40% ABV 

Why We Like It: This iconic Jack Daniel’s Old No. 7 takes the top spot on this list. Old No. 7 is crafted following the Lincoln County Process. 

The low-rye sour mash is filtered through a 10-feet sugar maple charcoal.

As expected, it has milk chocolate notes, with layers of vanilla wafers, banana chips, and Cherry Coke.  

It’s a truly remarkable expression on the whiskey market. We find the tasting notes, character, and body excellently balanced.

Best for sipping or mixing– we panic every time the bottle starts to run out.     

Fact: There’s a recently released expression, care of Master Distiller Chris Fletcher and Assistant Distiller lexie Phillips [3], the Jack Daniel’s American Malt Twice Barreled, which is a part of their Special Release series.
