Jim Beam Rye Bottling Note

Great value rye whiskey from Jim Beam. It's a favourite of whisky bible author Jim Murray, and won best rye aged under 10 years in 2010, scoring 88 points. The label received a bit of a redesign in 2016, changing from a yellow label to this rather stylish green label.

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...

Deceiving in the punch it packs
This Rye packs quite a punch with the pepper and caramel right off the bat. A very good rye in my opinion and will definitely purchase again. I like my drinks neat and this was a good one.

Excellent value, nice surprise.
I really like this, like a decent scottish whisky mated with a bourbon. I can't understand the negative reviews - take a punt and you won't be disappointed.

Very good
As are all the products off Jim Beam: honest! Tastes as good as it gets for that price, a no nonsense drink... I happen to love it and it makes for great Manhattans at home

A Nice Whiskey
A very nice, balanced whiskey. I find the adverse comments puzzling.

Not earth-shattering, perfectly OK in cocktails
Makes perfectly acceptable, swiggable Manhattan, which is what I bought it for. Nothing to write home about when drunk straight. It's...OK. Damned with faint praise, I suppose!

A side note though, prompted by reading other reviews: Canadian Whiskey is not necessarily rye whiskey, per se, even if it's often referred to as such. There needn't be much rye in it for it to be called Canadian Rye Whiskey, and not everyone realises that. Why does that matter? Well, simply because it gives a bit of context to some of the comments about how this stacks up...

Great Rye at any price. Good mixer. Go To.
Great value for $. I remember when this & Old Overholt were about all on the shelf usually. It's a fine Rye without pretensions still, even in a world of MGP pretenders (of course I'm not saying that's a bad thing, just that the dominance of marketing BS is).

Witholding Basic Info
It peeves me that the mash bill and aging is kept secret. I like to know what I'm working with; therefore, although this is a pretty smooth and decent whiskey, I will not be purchasing another bottle.
