Cherry and peanuts
I will not become a friend of bourbons. This one is ok, a bit interesting because of the cask finish and the best bourbon I had so far.
Bourbon glue note in the back, caramel, vanilla and some stewed strawberries and peaches. Quite spicy and not very sweet.
It's smoother and lighter than the bourbons I'm used to. Caramel, walnut, sour cherries and a peppery prickle. The texture is oily but not very viscous. Feels nice.
The aftertaste brings tender bitter chocolate from the sherry cask and more corn glue.
Light sweet nose with hints of fruit. Rich texture on the palate with caramels, oak, and pepper. Medium finish that leaves an interesting coating of black pepper on the tongue.
light on nose, strong on palate, oak taste with a sweet hint.
brown sugar, cola, some caramel notes on a nose I enjoy. palate is pretty light by comparison, oak and light brown sugar leading into some warming sherried and baking spices that last into a short finish. first sip had a tannic quality to it. if you go rooting around, some sherry fruit notes are there, but they're easy to miss. I think I taste more when I don't nose it too much. good mouthfeel, easy drinking.
Weak nose. Strong wood palate upfront with a very short finish.
Tastes like it wants to be great but I think the wine barrel finish mutes the flavors too much. Great nose with notes of vanilla, light brown sugar, and wine, but the flavor falls short. Has a little too much heat but that's typical of Beam juice. Overall it's got a good flavor but those flavors are a little too muted.
Soft vanilla, grapes, definite wine note, light brown sugar
Fruity, medium body, a little too much heat
Lasting heat, grape skin, a little astringent on the back side
Spice and oak taste.
First opened up the small of fruit and port wine. Tastes of wine, fruit and Sherry. Very mild and sweet tasting. Add a couple of ice cubes and cuts most of the spice taste.
I get bananas and cloves on the nose. Kinda nutty with a hint of sweet honey. I also get a fatty semi wild game taste which is interesting and different.
Very good blended, finished whiskey. Highly recommend.
Nose- dominant oak, hints of banana, sherry, caramel.
Palate- Classic Jim Beam nuttiness, slightly fruity, gentle sherry spice. Mouthfeel is a bit thin and watery.
Finish- medium to long, sherry spice lingers on the tongue for a nice kick, underlying oak.
Oak, banana, sherry, caramel
Peanut butter, sligtly fruity, sherry.
