Jim Beam “Signature” Six Grain, 44.5%

Price: $47.00 Issue: Winter 2010 Reviewer: John Hansell

Caramel and vanilla notes, with a peppering of spice (primarily cinnamon, but also evergreen, cocoa, teaberry, and nutmeg) and subtle roasted walnut, finishing dry, gritty, and spicy (from the grains and also the oak). Spicier and not as sweet when compared to its sibling Jim Beam Black, an eight year old. There's certainly a lot going on here. A very “busy” and intriguing whiskey for exploring and discussing.
