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.
ABV: 40% ABV
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.
