It's budget week, so let's review this entry-level bottling from Jim Beam. The nose is fairly tame for a rye, in fact it appears more like a rye-heavy bourbon. Intense sweetness, cinnamon and furniture polish mash up with fresh oak, orange jam and hints of licorice. Simple but pleasant, I would say. Almost like the doors of hell opening, the palate is hot, burning and merciless. Turpentine, fermented apples and a clash of sweet and spicy notes lead into a woody and thankfully short finish. Probably a suitable bottle for Manhattan cocktails, but not the Glencairn.
