Grade: B-

Type: American, Bourbon, Kentucky

Age: N/A (5 years)

ABV: 45.00%

Price: $30

Availability: Better Whiskey Stores

This bourbon is distilled in Kentucky and then barrelled in California and aged for five years in American white oak. The nose is sweet syrup and nuts. The palate is toasted toffee with a touch of caramel. The finish is pretty bland and uninteresting. I do think this stuff is pretty decent but not fantastic… B-/C+

A little pricey for the Backyard Budgets, but compared to similar vintage scotch, it’s a steal!

The ABV will vary on this small batch expression by Jim Beam. The nose on this is really rich with maple syrup and wood. The palate is one of the sweetest and driest bourbons I have ever tasted. I am guessing that this was made into a sugar bomb so as to mask the high ABV. The finish is long and hot, this stuff really lingers and does have a nice spice to it. Overall this is decent stuff but way to sweet for me and not all that interesting beyond the sugar.

This is a blend of rye, wheat, and corn. The nose on this has some floral notes and maybe a bit vanilla. On the palate this expression is very dry and has a little bit of spice, but mostly it becomes an intense astringent taste that lingers into the finish. While it’s not a terrible bourbon…it’s not far off either. C/C-

Price: $15

Availability: Wide

The nose on this is rye, spice, but with a slight chemical compound. The palate is dry again with moderate spice and lingering rye into the finish. The finish is tart and semi offensive. There is a lot of youth here. This is certainly a below average bourbon and was better when it was at 43.00% ABV.
