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.
