Legendary singer and all around bad ass Frank Sinatra, had he still been alive today, would be closing in on his 100th birthday this year. Jack Daniel’s, aiming to celebrate this special birthday and at the same time pay homage to one of its most famous drinkers, is set to release what has to be one of its most prestigious, and expensive, whiskies ever in the form of Sinatra Century. Jack Daniel’s Sinatra Century is an extremely limited release drawn from just 100 barrels handpicked by master distiller Jeff Arnett. It was bottled at 100 proof and only 3000 1L bottles will be produced. It is also not to be confused with the already available Sinatra Select. This special Tennessee whiskey is housed in a slick collector’s box and includes with it both a hardbound tribute book about Sinatra and the whiskey as well as “a replica of Frank’s tie clip that contains a digital, never-before-released complete concert recording of Frank at his best, onstage at The Sands Hotel and Casino in 1966.

Aroma: Sinatra Century is oaky with a pleasant smokiness and sweetened with a subtle honey and caramelized tropical fruit character.
Taste: As layered as Frank’s voice this whiskey offers the palate spiced oak with complex notes of soft smoke character, coconut and citrus fruit.
Finish: Ripe fruit with a pleasant smokiness and lingering notes of charred barrel spice round out our delicately crafted whiskey.
