Review #16 – Jim Beam White Label

Review #16 | /r/Bourbon Review #14 – Jim Beam White Label KSBW

The Schtick: A widely available product from one of the largest producers in American, and the world.

Distiller: Beam/Suntory

Bottler: Beam/Suntory

ABV: 40% ABV

Age: NAS

Source: Bottle, Purchased (2015)

Nose: Corn. Syrup. The tiniest hint of vanilla and caramel. A lot of hint of hangovers of days past.

Mouth: Thin, astringent. Syrupy sugar, ethanol and a rough tingle followed by a watery caramel flavor.

Finish: Short, thin, astringent, and entirely underwhelming.

Overall: It’s not great, but it’s not the worst thing I’ve tasted. Could be worse, I suppose.
