Jim Beam's White Label - 5 YO

Jim Beam's White Label - 5 YO

American as apple pie and a testament to quality, tradition and passion, Jim Beam® is the best-selling brand of Kentucky straight bourbon in the world. Seven generations of craftsmanship go into every bottle, along with corn, rye, barley malt, water, time and pride.

Jim Beam® is the flagship product of the Jim Beam® distillery, founded in 1795, and family operated for seven generations. It was given the name "Jim Beam" in 1933 after Colonel James B. Beam, who rebuilt the business following Prohibition. When you take a sip of Jim Beam® Original, you're savoring a Kentucky bourbon whiskey that has been produced essentially the same way by the same family for more than 200 years. Isn't it good to know some things never go out of style?

Jim Beam 5 yo ‘white’
I've got this baby on my shelves since a long time, time to crack it open. According to Wikipedia (I know, I know), today’s ‘white’ is 4yo whereas the 5yo is the green label. Colour: full gold. Nose: quite nice! It’s a tad rawish and dry for a bourbon but it’s packed with aromas from the ‘toasted bread’ family, with even a smokiness that I didn’t expect. It’s also a tad sour – is this sour mash? Notes of cider, compote, coffee… Also rocks, mint, soot... Maybe some OBE? Mouth: hey hey, this is nice! Punchy, fruity and grassy, with a lot of grains and touches of marshmallows. The problem is that it becomes very dry after that, and even drying. Chalk and tea tannins. Finish: quite long but very cinnamony. Comments: not everything is great here (the finish isn’t) but it’s a very nice dra… excuse me, shot. These old bottles are worth buying, they’re usually very cheap at auctions. SGP:442 - 81 points.
