Jim Beam Rye

Sorry about this...

We can't actually ship Jim Beam Rye to you in United States at the moment. We're working on a solution.

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...

Jim Beam Rye Reviews

A decent Rye for under £25, yes please.

Love it.

Ok

Not bad, works really well as a mixer.

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.

Smooth & Tasty

Smooth and tasty, and for a good price. Me likey.

It's OK. Nothing special

It's OK but not much to it. Isn't that complex get a little bit of spice but it soon dies down. For the price I'd buy bulliet rye over this any day or if you got a little more change spare go for rittenhouse rye.

Bring back the old one.

I don't care for the new green label Beam Rye. I like the old yellow label Rye.

I will definately putchase this whiskey in the future.

Well, the first glass was decent but very different than what I was expexting. I saw the rye label and being Canadian assumed it would be a nice rye whiskey..... Yeah, no. My first impression was that it was more like a scotch, I did enjoy it but as I mentioned, not at all what I expected. Then the next evening I had another glass. What a difference, it is very much a bourbon with the warmth of a rye. Finish/after taste is incredibly oaky, which I love. I really enjoy it as a sipping whiskey but would like to try it in an old fashioned. Also, reading other reviews, anyone that gets a hangover from only 2oz of alcohol shouldn't drink.
