    Jim Beam 90 proof green label rye.

    On Facebook, Jim Beam just announced a 90 proof green label rye. Glad to see a mid-proof offering from them. Can't wait to have a taste!
    If you have anything Michter's or Pennco and would like to sell it or share it with me, please let me know.

    Re: Jim Beam 90 proof green label rye.

    I mixed some Old Overholt and Knob Creek Rye 50/50 to see what it may come out like. I was pleased with my mixing results.

    Now, there's a thing to try. And I just happened to have an OO sitting in the back of the cabinet and a brand new KC rye I bought on sale awhile back.

    90 proof is still a little light. Would a 100 proof Jim Beam be too much like Knob Creek?

    Re: Jim Beam 90 proof green label rye.

    I think you could venture to say they would be nearly identical. I think the idea here is that the yellow label and the Old Overholt will be the inexpensive 80 proofers, the new Jim Beam green label rye will be the mid-proof, mid-price offering, and the Knob Creek rye would serve as the higher proof, more expensive offering.

    Mid shelf is my take as well.
