General description

Definitely a step up from Jim Beam whiskey with better oak and vanilla tones and a decent finish. Great value and a good daily drinker.

Easy drinking, familiar Jim Beam taste but smoother, not very busy, moderately sweet and mixes very well with colas etc.

Good sipping bourbon, nothing stands out dramatically but good basic expression. Better than lower tier Jims and always nice to come back to over time.

While an improvement upon the JB White Label, that's not a very high bar to clear. Pleasant and drinkable, but still better for mixing than for sipping.
