    Re: Jim Beam white whisky ?

    Lots and lots, these distillerys that opened up after Prohibition have been doing it for more than 75 years now.

    Re: Jim Beam white whisky ?

    Jacob's Ghost is unique it that it is aged a year and then heavily filtered to remove all of the color and a lot of the harsh, white-doggy taste that remains. The taste brings to mind malted milk balls or maybe white chocolate. It's a little sweet, a little malty, but not very whiskey. I'll take the black label or the coming-soon 12-year-old, thank you very much.

    Well, as a mixer it is different.

    This stuff is selling like hot cakes here in Kentucky. I haven't tried it, and have no desire to try it, but a lot of people are buying it, especially those were regulars at the "moonshine" section of my local store.

    I get a lot of white dog taste for it to havebeen in a barrel a year. Must have been a used barrel?

    I expect so, it would be a waste of a new barrel since the end product will be heavily filtered.

    Nope, new barrel. It's Jim Beam bourbon at one-year, plus the filtering. They could legally have labeled it bourbon but chose not to.

    Prices for used barrels are strong right now, so 'wasting' a new barrel is less of a concern than it might otherwise be. It's getting a lot of sweetness from the barrel.

    Jim Beam Jacobs Ghost!

    Saw this on a shelf today. Label says its not moonshine but Whiskey aged in new white oak for at least a year. At 23.00 a bottle, I think I will pass!
