Jim Beam Black 8 Year Old Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey

Best Buy

Opening nosings detect sweet notes of light caramel, toffee and yellow fruit; aeration stimulates baked, dry aromas of tobacco leaf, oak resin and breakfast cereal. Palate entry is firm, semisweet and mildly grainy; by midpalate, there's a slight oiliness to the texture that I like while the taste becomes narrowly focused on the grain/wood interplay. Finishes elegantly, emitting more dry than sweet flavors of toasted grain and oak. P.P.
