Good news whiskey lovers! Arriving in stores across the U.S. early next year (or this December in Tennessee) will be Jack Daniel’s new “White Dog” unaged rye whiskey.
Made with a combination of 70 percent rye, 18 percent corn, and 12 percent malted barley the drink will be a first from the Jack Daniel’s distillery since the Prohibition Era.
And don’t be concerned about the unusual color. The “white” appearance typically comes about as a result of the maturation process and the type of cask that’s used to age it. We’re not sure how much it really affects the taste, but it sure looks cool.
They’re experimenting with an aged rye, too, but there’s no definitive news on that at this point. For now, you’ll just have to make do with all of the bite that the “White Dog” brings. Fortunately, that’s a lot.
