Jim Beam Honey Bourbon (4 out of 5)

Standard

I LOVE this shit. I like bourbon, whiskey, and scotch. But this? This is stellar bourbon. This was one of the primary ingredients in the infamous Pumpkin Bourbon Milkshakes of last Sunday. Those were, in fact, quite delicious. I’ve been having a little bit of this the past few nights- and I do, really, mean a little bit. Like a shot worth. Not sure why it took me so long to try this; likely because I didn’t know it existed until D brought it over… and then left the bottle here. You should NEVER leave the bottle at my house, friends…for if I’m bored or having a bad day (try the past two weeks!), this is a great balm for my pissy, anarchist soul.

This bourbon has a nice ping to it, no aftertaste or aftershocks with this one. They had to have done something different, because other Jim Beam products are brewing with acidity and vavoom! This is seriously smooth bourbon with some nice honey flavor to it. You can mix it (tonight’s concoction was bourbon and hot apple cider. I pronounce it awesome), or you can drink it alone. Either way? You’ve got a winner on your hands here. A great amber colored liquor that has a burst of pepper flavor mid-through, and then it fizzles out quite nicely. The only thing that completely kills it for me is the sweetness factor. I’m not a big fan of syrupy liquor, and this one, if you drink enough, could certainly qualify for that category. That’s it. Otherwise, this is some good shiznit. Definitely not the best bourbon I’ve ever had, but it’s the best one I’ve had in a while.

About generationgbooks

I read a ridiculous amount of books in a ridiculously quick amount of time. I read everything- fiction, history, sports, political science, fantasy, young adults, kids, romance- everything. I have worked in books almost half of my life now, and I never get bored with them. I need an outlet for books, where I can reach many people who may or may not give a fig about my opinions. I'm kind of known for rambling about books, so I figure it's about time I get off my lazy ass and take it to the blogosphere, where I have had the great luck of meeting many wonderful people inflicted with this book-disease. Personal stuff? Not much. I work too much, I'm single so I have more time to deal with this and less to deal with BS. I'm a die-hard Duranie and 80's fan. I am way too entertained with social media and astrology(for those of you who give a fig, I'm a Capricorn, or the sexier description- a seagoat.) for mine and the world's- own good. Only insanity can result from me blogging. That said, here goes!
