Jim Beam Bourbon Whiskey [750ml]
This bourbon has a low-rye mash bill. It's aged for four years before the barrels ae blended and it's cut down to 80 proof. This is for many the entry point to the wider world of bourbon because it is drinkable whiskey that's very affordable and on pretty much every liquor shelf.
The sip centers the vanilla and caramel as a distant echo of oak arrives on the tongue. The sip warms with a bit of spice next to a sweetened caramel corn edge.
This is a solid all-round whiskey. You can shoot it with a beer back, it works in a highball. You can mix up old fashioned cocktails with it. Mostly, it is so affordable you can practice making cocktails with this and not break the bank.
