During the 1970s and most of the 1980s, Frank Bobo oversaw the historic rise of the Old No. 7 Brand. Throughout his watch, he never made enough whiskey to keep up with demand; he was more concerned about making every drop according to the low, time-honored process the Jack Daniel's founder perfected.
"I'd rather ask for folks' patience than their forgiveness." - Frank Bobo
This 5th bottle in the Master Distiller Series was released by the Distillery in October of 2016. Commemorating Frank Bobo, who served as Master Distiller from 1966 to 1988.
Making its debut in September of 2012, this current series of bottles celebrates the 7 Master Distillers throughout the history of the Jack Daniel Distillery. Each bottle is filled with 86 proof whiskey. They are also each individually numbered and sold in a collectible box. For display purposes, when 2 boxes are put side-by-side they complete an image of the Master Distiller being commemorated.
Nose: Light with plenty of sweetness. There are hints of dry spice and oily nuts, a touch of smoke.
Palate: Quite smooth and soft with notes of banana milkshake, a mixed nut note, a touch of caramel with crème anglaise.
Finish: Sweet with a little cereal sweetness and toasty oak.
