Jim Beam Single Barrel

Jim Beam has gone has released a Single Barrel expression of its wonderful Bourbon! As you can probably guess from the name, each bottle is drawn from a single barrel - no blending here. Less that 1% of Jim Beam barrels are selected to become Single Barrel releases! The ones that do get chosen are impressive indeed, full of deep, rich, oaky vanilla and generous caramel notes that top-notch Bourbon is known for. Decadent stuff.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Apple pie and rye spices, with buttery corn and oaky vanilla.

Palate Oak char leads into creamy vanilla, brown sugar, burnt caramel and peppery spice.

Finish Hints of dried apricot, toasty oak and baking spices.

Reviews for Jim Beam Single Barrel
Best bourbon in its price range
One of my favourite bourbons...very smooth, sweet but not overly so and a nice little burn as it goes down. Not quite as nice as Makers Mark 46 but beats the likes of Woodford Reserve/Gentleman Jack hands down.

Dont waste your money, buy 101.
Really poor and nothing special, harsh on the throat, tastes like a young whisky not balanced or any real length.

Better than I thought it would be
I think this is better than I thought it would be. Now I know SB are variable but the one I got was good. I frequently drink Eagle Rare, Woodford Reserve, Foresters and I'd give this the edge.

Smooth, warming, sweet and spirity.
I'm new to bourbon, having enjoyed single malt scotch for a number of years. I started with Jack Daniels and then Buffalo Trace. This is the first 'serious' bottle I've tried. So my comments are firmly those of a novice.

Drinking neat, for me, the nose is gentle and subtle, less forward than BT. A bit more 'spirit-y' than I'm used to. Vanilla, ripe melon and a little smoke.

The taste surprised me - considerably hotter mouth than I expected, even compared to Scotch at a similar ABV. Not at all unpleasant or harsh tho, despite the warmth the sip is smooth and silky.
The flavours grow and expand, the initial hit of flavour is more restrained than either of the other two I'm used to. But give it a second or two and a lovely flood of sweet vanilla and oak underpinned with the same spirit-y esters in the background. Half way through I tried a little water in it and feel that this opens it up a bit.

The finish is long, slow and satisfying, with a fruity, cinnamon linger.

Overall, as I step away from 'supermarket' choices, this has introduced me to the complexities of bourbon. I really enjoyed it and I'll need to make space for a selection of decent bottles.

Quid Pro Crow
Bring back the original formula for Old Crow which will place it back on the top shelf where it belongs

Jim's other side of the pillow
Jim beam is obviously a giant in the American whiskey sphere but does get tared with a certain brush amongst some aficionados. Many dismiss it for its wide popularity much like Jack Daniels, the white lable is probably to blame for that. But like JD, reach past the standard core expression and you will find some master crafted treats. The single barrels are particularly nice. Great abv, dusty warehouse muskyness, rich depth of flavour I'm guessing 8 years+ with a medium finish. Great all round sipper.
