Jim Beam – Black Bourbon (750ml)
Jim Beam Description
Our premium, 86-proof bourbon whiskey spends years longer being aged in our American White Oak barrels than our original Jim Beam. It’s those extra years of aging that give Jim Beam Black its full-bodied flavor with notes of smooth caramel and warm oak.
Wine Enthusiast: 90-95 Points
Opening nosings detect sweet notes of light caramel, toffee and yellow fruit; aeration stimulates baked, dry aromas of tobacco leaf, oak resin and breakfast cereal. Palate entry is firm, semisweet and mildly grainy; by midpalate, there s a slight oiliness to the texture that I like while the taste becomes narrowly focused on the grain/wood interplay. Finishes elegantly, emitting more dry than sweet flavors of toasted grain and oak.
