Jim Beam was given its name in 1933 after Colonel James B. Beam, who rebuilt the business following prohibition. This straight bourbon claims to be distilled to the same formula since 1795 when Jacob Beam a German immigrant began distilling whiskey. Jim Beam is aged for four years in oak barrels to create a smooth, mellow taste with hints of spice.
Size: 1 Litre ABV: 40 % Origin: United States  


Tasting Notes

It’s distinctly corny on the nose, its youth worn on its sleeve, but that’s not an altogether bad thing. That caramel corn nose heads into a body that isn’t exactly rich, but which shows off modest vanilla and moderate barrel char. The finish finds some minor secondary tones — nuts and even a hint of coffee — nothing outrageously complex, but enough to give the whiskey a bit of nuance until the corn chip notes make their inevitable return.
