Sippable on its own but generally meant as a mixer, Jim Beam is basic, standard and mass-produced whiskey. It is cheap benchmark bourbon that serves as useful point of reference when comparing to the quality of high-end spirits. Smelling rather simple, sweet and spirity, the nose is not much of an event. Jim Beam tastes young and harsh with underlying wood sap sweetness, some toffee notes and a touch of detergent. The finish is really short and to the point. A simple and yet honest Kentucky Straight Bourbon that gives you what you are paying for.

Nosing: Peach Wheat Cinnamon Grass Oak Vanilla Sweet

Taste: Sweet Fruit Grass Peach Cinnamon Wheat

Finish: Spices Oak

Comment: Not very interesting. Quite thin, mild and boring. If you want a decent and inexpensive bourbon, go for Bulliet instead.

Nosing: Sweet Alcohol Vanilla Fruit Peat Smoke Oak Spices
At the beginning alcoholic and sweet aroma - it's probably some malt and peach. In a couple of next sniffs spicyness and fruitiness appear. After that light vanilla and peat smoke notes come from the back. Aroma is volatile, but pleasant.

Taste: Sweet Oak Peat Smoke Peach Vanilla
Spicy, definitelly sweet and fruity, a lot of yun alcohol and peach taste is present. Strong oak taste with light sweet smoke. Some grain can be found in both arome and taste (but I'm not sure if it's rye or weat).

Finish: Spices Oak
Finish is rather short, full of spicyness and oak wood.

Comment:
Easy to drink, even without a mixer. Aroma and taste adequate to the price of this bourbon.
Rating: 2/5
