Jim Beam Rye Bottling Note

A great value rye from Jim Beam, commonly referred to as yellow label because it has, as you can clearly ascertain, a yellow label.

It's a favourite of whisky bible author Jim Murray, and won best rye aged under 10 years in 2010, scoring 88 points.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: The spice is immediately apparent... nutmeg, cloves, freshly-ground black pepper. It's clearly going to pack a punch. There's also some maraschino notes too, with a thick caramel undertone.

Palate: The spice delivery is not immediate; first there's a brief caramel vanilla note before it plunges you in. All the notes from the nose are here, delivered with a pleasant, fiery warmth.

Finish: This rounds off to smooth cherry and pepper, with a slightly citric sweetness.

Overall: Right. This is simply great for the sub-?30 price tag. I'm off to make an old fashioned...

User Reviews of the Jim Beam Rye

Unusual twist

I was greatly surprised by this whiskey. Especially given not so favorable reviews on the net.
While being slighltly harsh and dull, which is typical for many rye whiskey, Jim Beam Rye posesses unusual depth. Dryiness of rye breaks through typical burbon corn layers, which gives interesting feeling. This also gently warms and relaxing, which adds to overall pleasure
Recommended for any burbon addicted, as an interesting insight into this realm

Slough water would make a fitting chaser after this. Good lord, I now know why the pet rock made money...because crap sells!

Jim Beam Rye Beams Strongly

Delicious rye whiskey that I have been drinking for over 20 years. Mixes very well in cocktails with flavors lifting through other ingredients to the top of the flavor profile of the cocktail. Great for Sazeracs and Manhattans. This rye whiskey was around years before all of the heavily marketed brands without the lengthy history, leaving one to doubt whether many newer rye whiskies will be around for the long run; but Jim Beam Rye Whiskey will still be standing with great flavor. I have to stop writing now so that I may go have a taste now!

We picked up a bottle of this while we were stateside to give it a try, Jim Beam should really stick to making Bourbon and I really did expect more. Maybe we are just a little spoiled here being able to pick up a true Rye whiskey... Alberta Springs 10 year old costs less and is considerably better. The Beam will serve as a mixer as it does not lend itself to sipping.

Don't kid yourself.

Templeton/Old Overholt it ain't. But it's reasonably priced, and despite it's basic flavor notes, very sippable. Not a bad offering from a brand better known for it's bourbon.

My favorite

I'll agree that it's beautiful on a hot summer night, but I'll also say that this is a wonderful rye on any occasion. Love this stuff. Drink it by the case.

Well made, without surprises

I do second the author of "Not much there, but refreshing", to drink purely you really don't get too much out of it in terms of taste and complexity. It's rather flat, doesn't rest a long time on your palate, but it's still very different to Jim Beam's white label bourbon while being very elegant and smooth, that's why I can't imagine anything better for mixing Manhattans and Sazeracs and that's why it's, above all critique, great value for the money.

Not much there, but refreshing.

A thin, crisp whiskey. Does not really taste like a rye. More like a bourbon/rye hybrid. There is no body and it gets boring before the bottle is done. But on a hot summer night, over ice, it can be quite nice, in the way that a shot of cheap scotch can be nice when it's really cold outside. Nothing special here.
