    Quite an average bourbon. Yet good for a daily dram.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Classic bourbon nose, a little more on the vanilla and less on the caramel side. Still there are of cardamom in here. doesn't have a lot of depth, but it is not bad either.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Sweet and corny. Quite a bit of dark spices and vanilla. A tad bitter though.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Medium length. There are load of spices, but there is a harsh alcohol note here. Fades away with some fudge and vanilla.

  3. Cask1988 did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Very basic Bourbon profile. Not a very exciting whiskey but a decent and friendly daily dram. You would absolutely have expected more from it since there is even an forbidden age statement on this Bourbon bottle. You would say it has to be worth it for Jim Beam to collect annual fines for that. But I would have chosen another bottling for that..
    • Nose
      Sweet. Corn, vanilla, wood and some fruit. Pleasantly soft and good balance. Adding water doesn’t make any difference.
    • Taste
      Oily, sweet, soft and smooth. peppery, vanilla.
    • Finish
      Short-Medium. Sweet & dry. Dried wood and some delicate spices. Vanilla and hints of licorice.

    Promissing nose! But after tasting is missis the power.
    It’ s a typical normal Bourbon. Higher ABV would be better!
