Whisky Reviews for Jim Beam White Label

15 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 61.33 points

  1. Slàinte Mhath scored this whisky 60 points Administrator

    Sippable on its own but generally meant as a mixer, Jim Beam is basic, standard and mass-produced whiskey. It's a cheap benchmark bourbon that serves as a useful point of reference when comparing to the quality of high-end spirits. Smelling fairly simple, sweet and spirity, the nose is not much of an event. Jim Beam tastes young and harsh with an underlying wood sap sweetness, toffee notes and hints of detergent. The finish is really short and to the point. A simple but honest Kentucky Straight Bourbon that will give you what you are paying for.
