Looks like a nice bottle.

Traditional craftsmanship and the sharing of unique knowledge about the recipe of the perfect Tennessee whiskey has been a top priority at JACK DANIEL'S since its inception in 1866. Even then, founder Jack Daniels cared for the family ties and worked side by side with his nephew and cousin on his life's work. In keeping with this year's Father's Day, JACK DANIEL'S is presenting a line extension that may be understood as a special homage and appreciation of unique family stories in JACK DANIEL'S.

Frank Bobo, JACK DANIEL'S Master Distiller of the 70s and 80s, together with his grandson Chris Fletcher has selected three barrels especially for Germany, from which the special line extension "Bobo Family Selection" was created. Each barrel was selected by hand and impresses with its own special taste profile:

Barrel # 18-1817 convinces with a balanced combination of heavy oak and dark fruits. The second barrel # 18-1818 combines a mild, full-bodied vanilla with a light spice on the finish and the unmistakable gentleness of JACK DANIEL'S, paired with toasted oak. As the third flavor variation of the edition, Fass # 18-1820 provides a nice balance of pleasant spiciness and JACK DANIEL'S typical mild note.

While at JACK DANIEL'S, Bobo was responsible for the historic development of JACK DANIEL'S Tennessee Whiskey. Despite steadily rising demand and production bottlenecks, Bobo took the time to process every drop following the time-honored process perfected by founder Jack Daniels. Today, Chris Fletcher shares the Bobo family heritage as Assistant Master Distiller with JACK DANIEL'S. His passion for producing a world-class whiskey was first handed to him by his grandfather. Since the beginning of his career with JACK DANIEL'S in 2001, he now accompanies the second generation of the special whiskey production process.

The availability of the JACK DANIEL'S Single Barrel Select "Bobo Family Selection" (originally scheduled for May 10, 2018) is set to be July 4, 2018. From this date, the strictly limited edition will be available in JACK DANIEL'S online store be available.

Price: 85 Euro (RRP), 0,7 Liter, 45,0% Vol.

I hope those are not the end of real beautiful collector editions - Would hate it if any further collectible bottles are just SB's with a tag with a famous name and charged additional 50€  ??)

That is a little high for a Single Barrel. But we will all still buy them. At least the Arnett bottle came with a card with a signature. Would be nice if they would throw in a signed card by Bobo and Chris.

There seems to be some delay:

 

They write "good news" the bottles arrived safe, but they need to be prepared for shipping to the customers. So the sales beginning is delayed.

So professional  ::)
