Re: Jack Daniels
- Hi Jason. I know you were asking about flavour bases, but FYI
anyway, John Vandermeulen has previously posted the mash bills for
many whiskeys, including JD's.
Jack Daniels 80% 8% 6-row 12% rye include 24% backset; collect from
75% to 55%; try sweeten with maple syrup to mimick the sweetness from
the "charcoal mellowing" process. Mature on heavy char American oak,
at no stronger than 65%abv
Personally I recommend using both the flavour base and toasted oak
chips to get the best results out of flavouring a neutral spirit.
