JIM BEAM KENTUCKY STRAIGHT RYE - 75 Cl
Great value rye whiskey from Jim Beam. It's a favourite of whisky bible author Jim Murray, and won best rye aged under 10 years in 2010, scoring 88 points. The label received a bit of a redesign in 2016, changing from a yellow label to this ratherstylish green label.
|Nose||The spice is immediately apparent... nutmeg, cloves, freshly-ground black pepper. It's clearly going to pack a punch. There's also some maraschino notes too, with a thick caramel undertone.|
|Palate||The spice delivery is not immediate; first there's a brief caramel vanilla note before it plunges you in. All the notes from the nose are here, delivered with a pleasant, fiery warmth.|
|Finish||This rounds off to smooth cherry and pepper, with a slightly citric sweetness.|
