What’s Jack Daniel’s Triple Mash Whiskey?
Jack Daniel’s Triple Mash Whiskey is one of the first two permanent expressions of the Jack Daniel bonded series.
This edition is a significant shift for Jack Daniel’s lineup because all blended whiskeys are bonded, with the biggest surprise of adding a new, distinct malt whiskey blend.
It holds three bonded Jack Daniel’s whiskeys: 60% Tennessee Rye, 20% Tennessee Whiskey, and 20% American malt whiskey.
There are waves of sugar maple charcoal evolving into brown sugar with honey, banana hints, toasted oak, vanilla, and cinnamon spice filling our nostrils.
Swirling the whiskey in a Glencairn glass gives tons of banana bread notes on the nose with sweet layers of caramel, dried fruit notes, apricot, and dried cherries.
This Triple Mash has a lovely velvety texture with prominent and pleasant notes of vanilla, honey, oak, subtle rye spice, and freshly baked banana bread coating our tongue.
Its flavor profile brings new layers of fruitiness but maintains the core Brown Forman banana notes vibe we rarely find in any other whiskey.
It has a warm hint of malt and soft oak, leading to a long-lasting, well-rounded finish. The warmth of the dram evenly coats deep down in our chest.
At 100-proof, it has a slight hint of oak barrel char with malt blend pops and a faint artificial banana flavor at the end of the sip.
Why We Like It
- It has a decent mouthfeel with no burn, making it an excellent sipping whiskey.
- It has extra sweetness and fruity tastes in its profile compared with other Jack Daniel’s bottles.
- A good entry-level whiskey. At its price point, it offers far more value at a highly competitive rate.
- Since it has a lot of robust flavors of bananas, slightly weird artificial banana flavors pop up at moments.
It offers our entire nose with warm baking spice and gives fruity and bright flavors of honey, oak, and vanilla on the palate, with a slightly creamy mouthfeel.
The spices aromas took us back to Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel Rye, which mingled with light fruit flavors and sweet caramel.
A bolder heat intensifies with robust banana flavors but not overpowering the drink. There are more vanilla, oakiness, and fruity hints of apricot and cherry.
The taste has more leather hints on the palate, and the maple charcoal pops at moments.
Also, we are beginning to taste the malt whiskey blend toward the finish.
Uniqueness & Value
Sporting three different mash bills, it doesn’t have harsh notes meddling in our palate, and for its price point, it piles on the value and quality of the whiskey.
“The Jack Daniel Distillery has been making exceptional American whiskey to the highest standards for generations, before and after the Bottled in Bond Act…”– Chris Fletcher, Master Distiller
Its average price of around $30-ish bottle of three blended straight whiskey bottled-in-bond has a wide range of flavors that are relatively smooth and easy to drink.
Rating On Jack Daniel’s Triple Mash Whiskey
We’ve had a lot of blind tastings from other Jack Daniel’s bottles and tasted many of its signature labels.
But this Triple Mash expression gave a new character to the brand.
For us, we’re giving it a 3-star rating. For its price point, it offers significantly more value in quality than most bottom-shelf whiskeys and other mid-shelf whiskeys.
It can be an everyday whiskey selection. However, it is not exceptional enough to purchase on the secondary market.
To Sip Or Slip?
We did not expect this edition to be remarkable. If you’re into Jack Daniel’s Black Label or Sinatra Select, this new blend from JD makes a better and more affordable whiskey.
The combination of three-bonded whiskeys from Brown Forman creates a new profile, resulting in a more approachable dram but lively than its standard lineup.
As for some bottle alternatives, you can look for:
- Jack Daniel’s Old. 7 Tennessee Whiskey
- Jack Daniel’s Gentleman Jack
- Old Forester
How is Jack Daniel’s Triple Mash whiskey made?

When did Jack Daniel’s Triple Mash whiskey come out?
Jack Daniel’s Triple Mash whiskey was released last May 2022 as a permanent expression in the brand’s new bonded edition bottles. 
Where can you buy Jack Daniel’s Triple Mash whiskey?
The release will be available across the US, so you can buy JD’s Triple Mash in your local US liquor store or find it in your favorite online liquor shop.
Jack Daniel’s Triple Mash Blended Straight Whiskey edition breaks away from a norm lineup from Jack Daniel’s because all of its blended whiskeys used are bonded.
We’ll give the credit where it is due—the company did a radical take on Jack Daniel’s classic signature line, exceeding our expectations.
The flavors on the palate were able to offer a great sipping experience with a solid punch.
From its fair price point and quality, this is another bottle of whiskey worth drinking.
