On the way home from work I picked up a bottle of Jim Beam Black Label. The fancy decanter one to be exact. Not being a die-hard Beam fan I must say that I am pleased with this bourbon. Some have likened it to a low-proof Booker's, and I can see where they're comming from. I do have a question though: Some people have stated that they preferred this bourbon when it was a 7yo, instead of the current 8yo. Now, Beam white label has a 7yo variant. Is the 7yo white label similar to what used to be the 7yo black label? It is about $3 cheaper for the white here in Lexington, and I'll give it a try if there are any advocates out there.
