Jim Beam White Label

Sorry about this...

We can't actually ship Jim Beam White Label to you in United States at the moment. We're working on a solution, but until then, here are some alternatives:

Jim Beam White Label Bottling Note

Jim Beam bourbon undergoes distillation at lower temperatures and is distilled to no more than 62.5%, the White label is aged for four years and has quite a high percentage of rye in the mashbill.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Quite sweet with gentle notes of vanilla and cut hay, a touch of fresh corn fields and a little cereal sweetness, like the bluegrass fields of Kentucky.

Palate: Good body with notes of toasty oak and all the requisite notes of vanilla and crème anglaise, a little spice and pepper with an acetone note.

Finish: Toasty oak and resin with a some sweetness.

Jim Beam White Label Reviews

horrible and nasty

I bought a bottle to try and i honnestly wish i never its the worst tasteing drink ever and i woke up next day very ill and vomiting so as far as im concerned this is a no for me.... sorry jim you failed

14th September 2020


Better than jack daniels n7 and benchmarck n8 nice buzz too : ))

11th August 2020

Worst whisky

Worst whisky ever tasted, you will vomit in first sip, really horrible

3rd August 2020

Great entry level bourbon

Much better than I was expecting considering the many negative reviews. Simple tasty budget bourbon - nothing overtly complex or outstanding, just a straight-up classic bourbon.

14th July 2020

Great bourbon for the price.

A great sipper for the price, this and JD old. 7 are my go to's. Very smooth on the rocks, simply great.

24th June 2020

Nice budget drink

I never drink it neat, but with a mixer, it’s a very nice ‘session’ drink.

22nd June 2020

One of the WORST whiskeys I've ever had.

I love whiskey. Being on the lower end of the wage scaje I seldom have the opportunity to try many of the higher priced brands that I would like to try. So I tend to drink many of the lower cost brands. On that end I find that my fave is Wild Turkey. ButI also enjoy the underappreciated Canadian Hunter and most of Seagram's whisky offerings. But the acidic bitterness of Jim Beam is terrible to my pallet.

22nd June 2020

Not bad...try Xtra Aged or Devil's Cut.

Trying white label for the first time. I've been drinking Beam Xtra Aged and Devil's Cut...both smooth, oaky, just right. I'm trying to be fair to this White Label...its ok...maybe it needs to breathe some more. It's kinda mediciny, weak. A starter bourbon I guess...if you don't like this try Xtra Aged or Devil's Cut...both mellow, sweet, oaky.

18th June 2020

You're not going to get a better bourbon for the price.

Easy, good body and nice finish.

4th June 2020

Just nice.

Quite tasty.

24th May 2020


My favourite whiskey ever and i have tried them all and keep coming back to white label nectar of the gods for my daily pour .

21st May 2020

Good enough for Ol’ Bocephus, good enough for me.

Everyone on here crying about Jim Beam being terrible are snobs that are overlooking the fact that this is a low cost, introductory level bourbon. It’s purpose is to serve as a starting point for those who have never tried bourbon, as it is very mellow in all aspects. It will mix well in any cocktail for this same reason. Those of you complaining need to get off your high horse; obviously there are much better options, But for what it’s worth, it does the job. This is the bourbon that you buy as a round of shots at the bar, not what I’m going to pour neat and sip on at home. Hank Jr. sang about Jim Beam in many of his songs, and if that doesn’t count for something I’ll be damned. Overall a fantastic cheap bourbon.

9th May 2020

Buy something else

Unappealing, mediocre taste, no aftertaste whatsoever. The price is low, but that is the only advantage. There are so many good bourbons, buy one of these!

27th March 2020

a weak budget bourbon.

My first review on this site.
Cheap is the word that comes to my mind when I drink it. Has bourbon flavour. Drunken neat, it is weak.

21st March 2020

Warm on a cool night, without the campfire. All around good bourbon for the price.

For me it's heavy on the corn with a nice rye bite. Nothing too complicated. A bit of a sour mash nose and a nice barrel flavor on the finish. This is my first bottle of JB that I've mostly drank neat and I have to say it's a pleasure. Smooth with just enough rough edges to keep it interesting. I'll buy more in the future. It helps keep me out of my 18 year old scotch collection.

15th March 2020

just ok

ok drink but if you go cheap get Evan William 1763 instead

7th February 2020

How is THIS the best selling bourbon????

Sweet. Unappealingly sweet. With a molasses aftertaste. As a Kentuckian, I cannot for the life of me understand how this swill is the best selling bourbon in the world. Pure garbage. There are better options at even lower prices than this horrid swill.

25th January 2020

Dirty Dance

Awesome whiskey when you drink you feel like 😉 hell 😈 boy

26th December 2019

Best Budget Bourbon!

I have tried almost every bourbon and Jim Beam white label is an excellent budget bourbon.

Many people shit on Jim Beam. I've tried Markers Mark, Four Rose's, Woodford, Knob Creek, Wild Turkey, Wild Turkey 101, you almost of them. Jim Beam is the only one I enjoy neat.

If comparing to Basil Hayden, then Hayden wins but the price point is much different. Blantons is inconsistent. Wild Turkey regular bottle is decent, Knob Creek is good too but the others Jim Beam has a nice smoothness with a bit of kick.

Just cuz it's not as popular, especially for whisky/bourbon snobs, doesn't mean Jim Beam is bad.

I highly encourage you to set a blind tasting with different bourbon's and see what you really like.

Jim Beam for me is perfect. It's not complex but that's ok by me.

17th December 2019

Love it

Great spirit and great value for money.

14th November 2019

Best value buy it!

Tried Jack Daniels found it raw and almost undrinkable. This I found smooth with a great aftertaste. Really enjoyed it great value. Have been drinking Knob Creek , Makers Mark, Mellow Corn is my favourite. These are top whiskies and the Jim Beam isn't far behind them .

23rd September 2019

A cut above the rest

Jim Beam is always consistent and that is what makes them the king. Jim Beam is my Go To daily bourbon. Yes it is nice to have an expensive glass once in a while but my first love has to be Jim Beam and it’s sweet Carmel and vanilla with a nice toasty oak finish. Need I say more

27th August 2019

Vodka with brown food colouring.

This is harsh, with no taste.
It is little more than watered-down grain alcohol with some added food colouring.

13th June 2019

My go to Whisky and go to Whisky generally!

Not the nicest Whisky out there but at this price range it is unmissable!

4th April 2019

Poured down the toilet

It has a smoothness, but the flavour profile is bland and forgettable in every way. I couldn't finish it and ended it throwing it away rather than drink it.

25th February 2019

Good for what it is

I think that a lot of the people that give Jim Beam a hard time go in with the wrong mindset. You can’t compare this with a single malts or a bourbon from a completely different price range. It is what it is, which in this case means a reliable, inexpensive classic bourbon. Will it blow anyone’s mind? Probably not. Is it a good whisky for its price range? Absolutely. If you can afford better then go for it, if not then Beam got you covered.


21st February 2019

Good non offensive cheap bourbon

Smells seeet , maple syrup, vanilla , figs ,oak . And taste the same . Its good but not earthshaking experience. Simple but thats not always bad , in this case its goooood.

22nd December 2018

Jim Beam again?

Jim Beam is faithful, Jim beam white is what made Jim beam, Jim beam! You know what your's

11th December 2018

An solid classic!

For the money a good bourbon for an Old Fashion with Bob's Vanilla Bitter's and turbinado sugar!

29th September 2018

A truly blessed drink I will drink from now on, mellow, rounded, smooth, drinkable.

I bought a bottle but it has a white cap but never mind that. I’ve had another brand that was okay but when I tasted the one I bought today I couldn’t believe how smooth it is and with no nasty bite. I think I have found my drink of choice from now on. I’m not a drinker but now and again I just fancy a tipple at bedtime. I will sleep soundly tonight.
Thanks very much for this experience and thanks for the beautiful young lady who advertises Jim Beam over here in Wales 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿.

6th July 2018

Beam has done more damage to American Whiskey than prohibition

Dreck. Abysmal dreck. For a few dollars more, inexpensive Jack Daniels is always solid.

1st May 2018

A great bourbon good enough to compete with whiskey's twice the price.

I'm a whiskey collecter and have almost 200 bottles in my bar. I swear by Jim Beam. They do Bookers, Bakers and Knob creek. It might not be Bookers but certain flavours are still there. For under £20 you cannot find. Better Bourbon.

17th April 2018

Not good

Bought a bottle from Tesco - tasted horrible .. think I got a bad bottle worst drink I've ever had.. will try again in future

4th April 2018

Drink it on the rocks or mixed

The taste and finish do not live up to the aroma. The taste is weak and comes off to me as room temperature piss. Add some ice, however, and it transforms into something drinkable. Drink this on the rocks or mixed.

25th February 2018

A Budget Bourbon - best used in mixed drinks

Let's be honest about this bottle and not mince words. This is a high volume, lower quality, lower price bourbon that is only suitable to mix in drinks. This is best mixed in Coca Cola. It has less sweet taste than Jack Daniels. This bourbon is not suitable for sipping or drinking straight.

If you'd like a budget sipping bourbon, it's best that you look for something like Larceny.

20th January 2018


Awful - tastes of furniture polish. Why is this the best-selling bourbon in the market?

Will be using this as a mixer

30th December 2017

Lousy Bourbon

Jim Beam white is terrible has an after burn Jim Beam Black is excellent

26th November 2017


I drank it for 40 years. They changed the bottle and age it for 3 not 4 years now. Tastes horrible. Ill never buy it again. Switched to turkey.

22nd November 2017

An average.

Another whiskey which I bought in Montenegro. This one smells fine, though there is a hint of artificial flavor in both smell and taste. Is it allowed to add artificial flavors amd color to bourbon? This is probably a futile question. However, a decent whiskey, but really far from great.

21st November 2017

It is what it is.

Jim Beam White Label is THE American bourbon standard. You can get fancier (more expensive) bourbons, you can get special batch bourbon to suit your particular palette, but the comparison will always return to Jim Beam White Label. Jim Beam White Label is what bourbon is.

5th November 2017

I normally drink a Scotch but thought I would try bourbon it was ok but I will be sticking to scotch from now on

17th September 2017

Is my JB off

We did like it but our last two bottles from Tesco taste dreadful. What's happened to it.

16th July 2017

Alberto Viloria

Mucha Vainilla Fresca, Cereal, Madera Tostada y Algo Especiado, Excelente Bourbon.

13th March 2017

the Beam

Jim Beam is quite good. Quite flavorful. It's almost like a mixed drink in itself and has a coca-cola like sweetness to it. I drink on the rocks, but it would probably be a smooth mixer too.
I can definitely taste the corn in this, it's almost like corn and corn husks in a way, it is bourbon after all.
Nice stuff, pretty rich tasting and certainly not odd like scotch.

11th January 2017

Simply osm

It is simply wow, just love it taste, purely meant for on the rocks.

23rd December 2016

Fine to start with

The first smell was bitter and sweet at the same time. First smell of cherry, pepper, vanilla fudge and milk chocolate. And corn gave me a slight vision about the fields in rural Kentucky.
The taste itself was bitter as I expected. Then it became sweet with the taste of corn and vanilla. Later on I got notes of candy, fudge and cherry. Chocolate was distant. Eventually the taste got a note of bitter, fine oak.
Ending mainly tasted like fresh cherries and corn, even some butterscotch.

To be honest, I have to say that even thou I didn't think much of giving a major notice, I still understand why this bourbon is told to be a fine start. It's sweet, bitter and simply, a classic. In my opinion this has more profile toward the taste than Jack, because this tastes more natural even thou it's a mass-produced product.
Give it a go, but don't wait too much of it. It's a good starter. Is there anything else to say?

4th November 2016

Jim Beam White Label (new black cap). It a pure tenner, and here is why....

Why I give this whisky 10/10, you will ask? Surely, there are Chivas 25, Jack Daniels Sinatra version, Glenlivet 25 etc, all those fancy cognacs we see in the supermarkets behind locked glass, right....You will say this, right? Even something like a normal Chivas 12 or JWB 12 surely must taste better, right?

My premise is that if you at some logic can not compare a 10.000 euros car to a 100.000+ lets say Mercedes SL 500. Sure merc is a tenner, and in comparisment all this small cars should mean that they are automatically garbage, right? Same you can not compare Jim Beam to everything fantastic your palate has tasted in the past. If you do that, you can not get higher than a solid 6. So its like all those 10/10 small cars can never be a true 10 against a Ferrari, Lambo...It doesnt work that way. At least not in my book.
But I say you have to look for what you pay for the product, and what expectations are, and what the nearest competitors has to offer. What is the value, what gives you maximum value and enjoyment for your bucks that you ve spent.

My current top 10 (in no particular order are): Chivas 18, Dimple 15, Glenmorengie 12 QR, Aberlour abunadh 55, Hennesy fine, Jack Daniels single barrel, Woodford reserve, Jack Daniels old 7, Laphroaig 10, Knob Creek.

18th October 2016

Royal visky

Really nice we enjoyed it lot with fun and we feel a good taste of real visky.....

New White Label with a Black Cap

There is a New White Label Jim Beam with a Black Cap. What is the difference?

27th May 2016


It's good but it's missing something.

1st May 2016

Something is amiss - Part II

I previously gave this drink a 3. There was about four ounces left in the bottle, so I poured a healthy sized shot in my favorite tumbler and drank it neat today. This bourbon has really revealed itself to me - it was as if I needed to become accustomed to one of it's elements. Now, the "chemical taste", that one element to it's character is no longer offensive to me. I was very surprised, to be honest, how different this drink tasted to me today. So, in the spirit of fairness I am writing a review part II and giving this Bourbon a 7. I may go out and purchase a second bottle. This is likely a case of a newcomer to bourbon needing to acclimatize his palate to the different flavors of bourbon. Just had another sip... next week this may evolve into an eight. Sorry for the premature review.

20th March 2016

Something is amiss

There is a key element - one of the flavors - in this drink that doesn't appeal to me. It's almost a sort of chemical taste. Mixed with seven and a lime wedge it's more tolerable, but still remains the most prevalent characteristic. I used to drink Jack Daniels all the time as a younger man, and since returning to the drink, I've tried Flatboat and Bulleit Bourbon. I may be a newbie at Bourbon, but I keep the Bulleit on the shelf now, and will look past JB White Label for my next "shelf worthy" bottle. I think one of the key flavor elements is just too strong for me... YMMV of course.

17th March 2016

jim beam white notes

I've had quite a few bourbons, am a converted scotch drinker. It has a spicy flavor, must be the rye, a definite woody oak aroma and flavor comes thru, since it is corn, sure enough highlights it with with a sweet taste, compared to a scotch, id say it's very flavorful American ingenuity...

15th March 2016

Awsm feel


19th January 2016


I'll try any bourbon you put in front of me, and even had a bartender spend his own money trying to convince me there was "more to life", but I always come back to this one. No ice, mixers, or even glasses needed. Straight from the bottle, it's my go-to for every occasion. If I'm feeling a little more cocktail-ish, it's decent with diet cola and a squeeze of lime, but it's always better straight!

12th January 2016

Overrated, but well advertised!!

There are far better bourbons out there for not much more money! but stick Mila Kunis on the advert and you're going to sell bottles! In my option try somthing diffrent, well to be honest anything diffrent! And you'll be glad you spent the extra! X

23rd December 2015

Tastes like peanuts

Tastes like oaky peanuts.

17th December 2015

Wouldn't turn it down.

I love good liquor, whether it be rum, tequila, or bourbon. Personally I prefer Knob Creek. It's a bit oaky and vanilla with the telltale linger of corn and rye. Sure it isn't the most unique blend but it's certainly no slouch and a worthy classic bourbon. I wish it had a smokeyness to the palate. If you want a no frills and affordable bourbon this is a great place to start. At least you won't spend 40-60 dollars to discover you dislike the concept of bourbon. Which really, this is an American classic and a piece of history you should at least try it once.

15th October 2015

OK inexpensive bourbon

I used to drink JB in my student days when it was 86 proof. When they went to 80 proof it lost some of its character. There's nothing really wrong with it, and nothing particularly memorable either. If you're having a party and most people will be having mixed drinks, you won't go wrong. It's acceptable for drinking on the rocks.

31st August 2015


No me convenció. No le encuentro muchos puntos a favor. No es un whisky para el disfrute. Cumple su función si te querés emborrachar, pero no pidas maravillas
de este whisky 4.5/10

23rd August 2015

Bought this at import prices, regretted it greatly

The most inexplicably popular whisky on the market. Tasted like vegetables and straight alcohol. This is hands down the worst purchase I made of any spirit, but I did once buy a beer that tasted like socks soap and bitterness, so I'll give Jim beam a 2. I probably average around 7/10 for reviews, I just really really hated this whisky.

26th July 2015

"Better' than JB Black

Having decided I wanted a change from Scotch, I bought both JB white and black label, Knob Creek 9, Wild Turkey 101 and Bulleit (NAS). I like them all, for different reasons, except the JB Black. I find that unpalatable and struggling to get through the bottle, even with mixers. The JB White is what I would regard as being a good, solid all-rounder. At the price, it deserves a 4.

13th March 2015

Loved it.

Just finished a bottle, Loved it straight... Definatly going to buy some more.

2nd March 2015

Shockingly Good!

OK, I'm an uneducated swine, but it's cheap, has no pretensions, and an utterly beguiling simplicity. Vanilla (lots!), toffee and maybe a little barley sugar all contained by a sweet, gentle oakishness. Corny, indeed, but in a good way.
Every time I drink this, it gets harder to justify spending more on a bottle of anything. Full marks on VFM alone -how do they do it? Enjoy a shameless, simple treat!

25th February 2015


Drank Jack for years but have gotten to appreciate Beam. A very good value for a good whiskey.

13th February 2015

A good beginners bourbon

The nose is very subtle almost tough to pick up on an aroma. I did pic up on light vanilla and oak. The sip is very light not a whole lot of flavor. There are hints spice, a lot of oak and light vanilla, but nothing special. The finish is dry with some spice. Overall white label is not bad, but nothing to write home about.

19th January 2015

Decent for price point

While this lacks some of the complexity and fruity notes of Jack Daniels, it's still very drinkable, and at about 8 bucks less per 750ml. While it doesn't have the richer caramel/bananabread flavors of Jack Daniels, it does have nicely balanced corn/nut qualities and a pleasing smoke flavor.

Would definitely buy again, not as rich as Jack Daniels but perfectly fine in its own right. I'd think of it as a budget "good" Bourbon whiskey. Bourbon whiskey that I've tried that's at a lower price point than this has universally been undrinkable.

10th January 2015

Good for newcomers

Smoky taste for that price is really nice, really good for novices to experiment liquors.

I experimented the same taste savoring expensive whiskeys, and that one is a first state to flavors for new comers.

13th December 2014

The Worst

It sucks and that's the truth!!

2nd December 2014

Not bad

woody note with hints of cola, corn, vanilla, floral, solvent and sweetness. rather sweet on the palate which tastes like how it smells. a short lived but precise finish as well. All in all not a bad bourbon for its price.

17th October 2014


A real Kentucky bourbon, which brings back memories of days gone by. Oh where has I.W. Harper gone? Great with ice on a long, hot evening

9th October 2014

the original

This is, in my opinion, the best whiskey you can get for under $30. Great whiskey

9th October 2014

Classic story

it's a bit harsh at first sip, but you'll get used to as the bottle goes down, it goes well with some ice and you can add some same range I prefer Jack Daniel's No.7 instead

5th September 2014

Scotch vs Bourbon

I'm usually a scotch drinker but scotch is a little low on stock in the remote area im from. So i picked up a bottle of bourbon, and drank it like i would scotch, the smell is pretty strong like woody and oaky, and the flavor is pretty much like the nose, it has a slight sweet oaky taste, and a kick, which i take to be the rye in the mashbill. The taste of corn is different then barley, but a grain nonetheless, not bad mixed with barley and rye....It's different then scotch, more oaky, more bite then scotch, but scotch is different.

31st August 2014

My love

Jim Beam is my love, it reminds me of the beautiful sunset of the old days.

7th August 2014

Too fruity

Easy drinking but some tutti-frutti, like bubble gum. I prefer Jack Daniels...

12th July 2014

Decent for the price

It's good neat or with a cube of ice. Don't expect a game changer at such a low price.. You get what you pay for cheap as$! Great introduction if your new to whiskey but there are much better offerings if you want to see what bourbon has to offer, but will cost you more for that treat... Jim Beam is solid, but not complex.

1st July 2014

Can't beat the price

I don't understand the negative reviews. This is a great bourbon! Sure you can find a much better drink, but you will pay a lot more. Don't expect a highly complex Bourbon at such a low price.

15th June 2014

Ice ice baby

Dont try drinking this stuff neat. Its hard as nails. Plenty of ice though and it softens it considerably and a wonderful yeast/rye sourness comes through. As you approach the bottom, you should still have plenty of ice left. It gets sweeter and more rye comes through the more dilute. Has to chilled or it tastes nasty. I can't explain why this is so good but on ice its the best booze going.

8th June 2014

My Favorite

My favorite as a mix in my Manhattans and Rusty Nails. Just makes them taste so much better.

26th May 2014

Nice on the rocks

I've tried a lot of the non-single barrel bourbons this month courtesy of some friends with expense accounts (!). On my desk I have: Woodford Reserve Distiller's Select, Buffalo Trace, Knob Creek, Jack Daniel's Gentleman Jack (yes I know but including for sake of supermarket sweepness) and Maker's Mark. Woodford is bloody vile. Its bottled at 43% and boy can you taste that extra 3%. Too much booze kills the normally sweet mouthfeel and leaves you reaching for ice. Which then does a JWB and it falls apart completely on the rocks. Astringent, wood but new wood not pleasant at all. Overpriced shyte! Buffalo Trace is great on the rocks but I feel again its too full blown. Too much of everything (very American I guess). Its nice enough but not something you want to drink just the one double. Knob Creek was just a huge disappointment. Granted its the entry level one. But still. Almost undrinkable. Booze, booze and more booze. Nothing much else. Maker's Mark was far more enjoyable; loads of oak and corn sweetness and plenty of 'spice'. Now this was a huge surprise to me too but Jim Beam White Label. On ice (4 smallish cubes) + three fingers. A minute to settle. Its just the best of the bunch. A perfect balance between sweet, booze, oak and a yeasty freakiness that just hits all the right bits of your tongue. I can't understand why a £15 bottle of mass produced 'filth' is the best 'cheap' bourbon you can pick up from Asda or the ilk. But it is. If you like to be blown away a-la-mouthwash then get some Trace. But if you like a sweet/sour/oaky apperatif of an evening then Jim Beam is a great product. Unpretentious and highly affordable. 10 from me.

29th April 2014


This is the only whiskey there is where i get a hangover from after 2 glasses

27th April 2014

not bad

Overall its decent and cheap obviously there's better in my opinion but for the price good choice

11th April 2014

Existential Bliss

I lay, struggling, staring at the half finished glass of Jim Beam from the night before. Every second the clock ticks, I question my manhood more and more. I know I'm better than that - to leave a half empty glass of whiskey - and sadly the glass knows I am too. It begs me to imbibe it's sweet venom, but I can't, can I? On a Sunday morning? Blasphemy! Society would never understand.

I try to move on, but the game of cat and mouse continues. I struggle to clean, emptying half finished beer after half finished beer, but I simply can't bring myself to pour out what's left of my fallen friend.

Playfully it bats its eyes, and nudges me to take control...I know what it wants, and part of me wants it more. I can't do this! The pressure grows! "Why have you forsaken me?" I scream to the heavens. It's at that very moment I realize this is my destiny.

I succumb to the sweet calls of the siren and place my lips upon the glass of (now warm) melted ice and sweet nectar of the gods. Memories of college apartments, black mold, wrapping paper on the walls, and faded glory flash before my eyes. The smell of molasses and sour mash take over. My tongue dances fancifully as the layers of smokey flavors take me on a path to total Nirvana.

2nd March 2014

Drink it in a long glass!!

This is a great product and brand drink it in a long glass full of ice mixed with ginger ale and a wedge of lime superb.

9th February 2014


This is good bourbon. Great? No. But is good and certainly great for the price. Be a man and order it up and enjoy.

1st February 2014

Jim Beam is Good

It tastes like heaven, you can't find any other bottle at this price range.

8th January 2014

Decent, value bourbon

WAY nicer than JD No7

5th January 2014


Anyone who rates this as under 4 stars is talking crap. Superb taste for the money, full-stop.

3rd January 2014

Aussie bogan

me mate gave me some of this the other day while we were down at the footy and I swear the barbecue sauce at the sausage sizzle had more notes in it. it's like someone's put some wood, dirty socks and some corn and left it in a barrel with
grey water for a couple of years and put it in a bottle. I feel sorry for me mate dazza who ended up with a 4.5 litter bottle of it. but seriously it's not bloody worth the hangover for it.

1st October 2013

forgot to rate

three and a half stars (being generous)

20th September 2013

a great point of reference

You have to start somewhere and Beam white is not a bad start as far as bourbon is concerned; I feel you can not appreciate a Wild Turkey 101 and Elijah Craig fully until you have tasted so called "baseline" products as a point of reference...Jack Nicholson drank Beam white in "Easy Rider"...nuff said:)

20th September 2013



10th July 2013

Real Bourbon

If you don't like Jim Beam,than maybe you just don't like straight bourbon whiskey.

I don't like the oak background taste at all, but that's probably just me. Not too shabby otherwise. Not too shabby at all. 7/10

Anyone saying that this isn't worth drinking, is a sissy- this is whiskey not a bottle of chablis. If you cant handle beam, pick your Michelob ultra and go back to the kiddie table. Beam has a very pleasant taste and compared to many other bourbons, Beam isn't too much of a gut rot. I drink it straight on the a dirty glass...and smoking a paul maul, unfiltered...were talking America pal! Happy Drinking all, be safe and don't drive

For the money the best

Never gives me a hangover and you don't need to mix it

not a benchmark bourbon.

Drinkable but better out there for the money especially if you drink neat. McFees Benchmark bourbon is by far the smoother man, cheaper too.

I'll see your half a star and raise you 5 stars

This is just to counteract the stupidity of the guy above who posted an unreasonably low rating twice.

Low rating not warranted

Jack Daniels and Southern Comfort are the only American whiskey’s I’ve ever tried and they were enough to completely put me off exploring American whiskey’s any further but I thought I’d better give a straight bourbon a try so naturally I went for the other major American whisky brand, Jim Beam. Having been a keen Scotch drinker the for a good few years and recently had some particularly fine Scotch’s I was expecting it to be a bit of a chore to get the Jim Beam down but I was very pleasantly surprised. Do not take heed to the low user ratings, this is very pleasant whisky, I would question whether the bright fella above who posted his review twice and that can barely string together a sentence that makes any sense has even tried this because to say this is tasteless is absolute nonsense. Having never had a proper bourbon before I was expecting it to be a bit of an oak monster but it isn’t, there is no doubt a fair bit of oak up front but just the right amount and it’s balanced very well against a honey and vanilla sweetness.

bloody horrible

a soft sweet nose was promising but this abomination is one of the worst things I've ever drunk. Avoid.

Love it

Drinking it right now, whilst looking at possible other beam purchases. its a good quality, easy drink. perfect with ice, i never mix my whiskeys anyway. its cheap and available almost anywhere. but you should buy all your drink off master of malt, their service is spot on.

Jim Beam No 1 fan

Are you people crazy - it is obvious they wouldn't know a good Bourban if it jumped up and bit them.

agree with the champ

agree with the champ, kind of...sometimes you just want that extra elijah craig 12 or something, but as far as basics go: two thumbs the way - nice ad by one ofe my fave actors: Mr Willem Dafoe!

The Champ

Anyone who would rate this whiskey poor is someone who simply doesn't like Whiskey. I believe Jim Beam to be one of the finest Whiskeys to drink on the rocks, or straight up in shots,and especially for the price. I have sampled many brands over the years, and can afford to drink what I want. Yet, my brand of choice, has remained the same. (still Jim Beam). Always a good experience from start to finish. Not for Snobs, who tend toward quirkier, generally stronger tastes, smells and finishes, but rather for those that simply want a consistently superior, smoother tasting Bourbon.

Its very bad, tasteless, unpleasant, not even good to your nose. i highly recommend not to have this if you getting it for free also. Please if you are a real liquor lover dont just go on the price. Rest your choice......

Richard Murfin reviews the white

Having just reviewed the black I thought I'd mention the white. Jim beam white is often labelled as a great mixing whiskey. This title is often used to desrcribe a mundane blend that can be hidden by coca cola or lemonade. Id say calling this a mixing whiskey only does it a disservice. Jim beam is a great sipping whiskey too. The nose is vanilla, corn and even marzipan. The taste follows very well , again with vanilla and mild spices. The finish is sweet with mild wood and a hint of vanilla. Overall a superb bourbon and better than most competitors in the same price bracket. The only other bourbon of the same price id put on a par is Evan Williams ( another underrated bourbon you shoudl check out) .

Maize infusion

The soft texture of this dram is very pleasant but the nose is too full of maize smell.
