This isn't your ordinary whiskey with a new label. Specially barreled and bottled at 100 proof, this whiskey has a complex flavor with hints of butterscotch and toffee. The grain is still the same combination as No. 7 at  0 percent corn, 12 percent barley, and 8 percent rye. But the 100 proof bottling process gives an extra punch and added complexity to the classic whiskey.

The company hasn't said how long this bottle will be around, but it's not likely to last long.

To take a taste, you'll have to put out about 100 bucks, but if you're a big Jack Daniels fan, it's definitely worth it. 

If you're not looking to spend so much, get yourself some  No. 7 in a commemorative bottle to show a bit of love to this Tennessee favorite. Considering every drop of No. 7 is filtered through 10-feet of sugar maple charcoal and matured in hand crafted barrels, this whiskey is well worth the price.

Jack Daniels has been operating out of Lynchburg, TN the entire time they've been in business. Originally, Jack found the clear cave water of the land was iron free and ideal for making whiskey. So, he bought up the land, made a distillery, and it still runs from that very spot today. Nothings ever been better than that cave spring and it doesn't look like that's gonna change for the next 150 years.

A brand that's stuck to it's southern roots with respect is worth celebrating. Jack Daniels put Tennessee whiskey on the map and it's popularity keeps growing. They've withstood Prohibition, the Depression, World War II, and everything in between. Jack Daniels has become a part of history and a place of Southern pride.

Though you never need an excuse to pour yourself a glass of Jack Daniels, this historic moment for the company is a good a reason as any to pick up a bottle or two. Or maybe a case.
