Jim Beam Distiller's Cut, 50%

Price: $23 Issue: Spring 2018 Reviewer: Fred Minnick

Cornbread and toffee start this alluring whiskey, followed by hints of paprika, fruits, flowers, and caramel. Afterward, it opens up into a bakery with cinnamon rolls, caramel chews, vanilla cupcakes, and ginger. Baking spices and earth appear over a medium finish that offers black licorice. It's well-suited for mixing.
