Jack Daniel's Old No.7 Brand Green Label 86 Proof 1982
Jack Daniel's is the best-selling American whiskey in the world. Despite that fact it can legally be categorised as a straight bourbon, it has always shunned this title, preferring to market itself as a Tennessee Whiskey. These are similar to straight bourbons but have the additional requirement of having been filtered through maple wood charcoal, a practice known as the Lincoln County Process. History has not always given the distillery an easy ride though. Tennessee was an early adopter of Prohibition in 1910, and one of the last to repeal it in 1938 (five years later than the repeal at Federal level). Even today the distillery is still located in a "dry" county, meaning none of its products are sold in its hometown or those around it. The distillery was then only operational for four years before being forced to close again during the second world war. Ten years later it was purchased by the Brown-Forman corporation and its fortunes turned for good. Its classic black-labelled Old No.7 brand (named after the distillery’s original DSP number) is now a globally recognised product.
The green labelled Old No.7 brand is lighter and has a smoother taste than its black label counterpart. Both products are produced in the same manner, however a team of professional tasters determine which barrels are reserved for which release, with the best quality reserved for the more premium black label iteration. Now with a narrower distribution and often difficult to find, the green label Old No.7 is becoming increasingly collectable.
