General description

lovely bourbon, middle of the road but a quality drinker! I paid €50, twenty cheaper and it would be well worth it!

Nose

sweet but spicy, cinnamon, pepper, liquorice. then old leather and oak.

Palate

super spicy, white pepper, cayenne pepper, hot sauce. then a little sweetness, sweet cherries, strawberries oddly. with water the spice is still there but some sourness comes through.

Finish

decent finish, that spice lingers.

General description

Surprisingly dissatisfied with this one. Mostly pepper in the nose and taste with more spice and bite than expected for the proof. I'll give the bottle another try, but so far this doesn't earn a return appearance in my cupboard.

Nose

Peppery and Leather

Palate

Peppercorn and spice.

Finish

Spice and rye.

General description

Definitely a smoother bourbon. Known to have more rye than most it definitely softens the usual bourbon finish.

General description

I really wanted to like this bourbon but it is just not for me. I usually like the Beam offerings but there were no discernable Beam notes that I could detect. I am not saying that this is bad or swill but the notes that are present are just not my notes. I can easily see how the expert rating is low while the user rating reflects a greater love for BH. This either fits your tastes or it doesn't.

A solid Bourbon. Sweet with a touch of oak, and a little kick at the end (surprising due to the low alcohol content)
