In each edition of “Decoded,” we take a recognizable product and break it down by explaining what everything on it means. In this installment, we look at the best-selling American whiskey in the world: Jack Daniel’s. Though the label has had a few variations over time, this is one of the most well-known.

  • 1. Jack Daniel: Founder of the distillery. Full name was actually “Jasper Newton Daniel.”
  • 2. Sour Mash: A process where fresh mash (the combination of grains, water and barley malt) is conditioned with spent mash (mash used in a previous batch) to aid in the consistency of flavor.
  • 3. Lynchburg, Tennessee: City where Jack Daniel’s is distilled. The city is located in a dry county. You are allowed, however, to purchase a “commemorative” bottle if you take a tour of the distillery.
  • 4. Old No. 7 Brand: The reason Jack Daniel’s named his whiskey “Old No. 7 Brand” is a mystery. Some of the more popular rumors include the face that the No. 7 train carried the barrels and that he had seven girlfriends.
  • 5. Tennessee Whiskey: Jack Daniel’s is dripped over charcoal so it’s technically a Tennessee whiskey and not a bourbon despite the fact that many bars list it as such.

Whether at home or on-the-go, when it comes to vaporizers, we want it all. We want to be able to use full flower or potent concentrates depending on the mood–and keep it smooth without any harsh smoke. We want multiple modes for unique combinations of flavor and vapor. We want an oven that’s as easy to clean as it is adjustable depending on the length of the session. Sounds impossible, right? It’s not with PAX Plus. In addition to packing all those features into one perfectly portable device, it’s also one the most sleek and stylish products that’s come out recently.
