    Re: Jim Beam white whisky ?

    Oh I understand the distinction Scott, in much the same way some clear rums are actually aged a couple of years in barrel then filtered back to a near colorless liquor. Beam must've had some specific goals when in mind when they decided to go this route.

    I have seen basically the same pricing as well,the decal on the bottle of Jacob Beam must be worth and extra $8.I also think it's funny it is labeled as a new product yet the price has already been slashed,must be selling well.

    Re: Jim Beam white whisky ?

    I remember trying this in KY and thinking I might buy a bottle of this to have around. Not an every day sipper but it's interesting.

    I imagine there is still some of it left sitting comfortably in the sample release bottle, brought out to New Hope KY last KBF, for the original recipient, who somehow missed the driveway .

    It was a mental lapse.

    well, this has shown up in NY. 24 bucks. Now I have stated many times I like young whiskey. This stuff is good. Has a little bourbon taste and plenty of that Beam yeast mash funk that lets you know this stuff is not far from white dog.

    Glad you like it Tom, think I'll hold out for something more grown up.

    Re: Jim Beam white whisky ?

    I tried this at a store tasting last weekend. I wasn't expecting much and was very pleasantly surprised. The stuff is really pretty good. Unlike Tom, I didn't pick up the "Beam Yeast" thing that we all know about. I found it pleasant all around. I'm not sure what I would do with it but I'm sure there are some pretty good cocktail recipes that it would work great in. Worth a try I would say.

    Re: Jim Beam white whisky ?

    lets put it this way. there are a lot of micros out there that would give their left nut to have one year old whiskey taste that good. It is not all about putting hal a million bucks in a still and having it magically make whiskey. Lots of know how and craft goes into what the big distillers do.
