Jim Beam Black Label

(70cl, 43%)

Jim Beam Black Label

Jim Beam Black Label Bottling Note

The Black edition from Jim Beam is a marriage of whiskeys aged for 8 years before bottling at 43%, slightly higher than the standard bourbon proof, proffering greater complexity.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

The nose is quite complex and well-balanced. There are notes of crème anglaise and butterscotch, mixed dried peels and nuts, a hint of aniseed and lovely cereal sweetness. The palate is full and thick with fruit. There are notes of vanilla fudge and honey, cereal sweetness, plenty of rye with a hint of cooked fruit. The finish is of good length with a touch of toasty oak spice.

User Reviews of the Jim Beam Black Label

Smooth, full of character

So, far, the best Bourbon I have had. Tasting it after getting disappointed with the Dalmore 12. I dare say it's more drinkable than the Dalmore.

Lone gun

Tried them all and I always go back to black .Not fruity or too high proofed .Dry and smooth.

At its price point, nothing can touch it for drinkability. And no, it's not in the same price range as Elijah Craig. If you're familiar with regular Beam, Black has less sugar tones and a nice charred finish. Neat drinkers can easily skip the rocks. My scotch drinking has fallen off, and Black is the reason.

A good bourbon.

Not very sweet. Not very harsh.

Overpriced and Underdeveloped

A simple, linear, unsophisticated and quite mundane commercial spirit lacking any profound complexity or nuance. Hot, dry and somewhat bitter, this product tastes like it was aged for 8 weeks rather than years. Generally unappealing neat, perhaps tenable mixed. For a few extra bucks, Elijah Craig is in a whole different solar system.

Almost the Worst

This is the worst Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey I've had in quite a while. I can't even finish the bottle.

If you don't like spicy bourbons this is for you.

If you like your bourbon heavy on the caramel and sugary flavors then this is a great choice. Smooth and creamy with a wonderfully charred finish.

Great stuff

Jim beam black is the next step from the white. The light vanilla of the white has deepened and the flavour is now darker and more robust. The nose is hardwood, leather and aniseed. The taste is akin to brown sugar, spice and the afformentioned vanilla. The finish is spice and wood with a sharp bite of liquorice. Its a fantastic bourbon and is superb for sipping or mixing. Personally I think the white or green label is better mixed as its lighter , the black is great neat or on the rocks. Its also superb with crushed ice and mint if your looking for a more refreshing drink.
