    Re: 7 or 8 YO Jim Beam

    I agree, learning bourbon is a helluva lot more fun than learning wine.

    And, in the long run Tim, probably cheaper.

    Re: 7 or 8 YO Jim Beam

    Surveying the local liquor stores its 13.29 for the Seven Year Old and 16.29 for the Black Label.

    I liked the sweetness of the 7YO and don't know if the Black is as sweet as the 7YO. Does anyone know about the sweetness of the Black Label Jim Beam?

    Thanks,

    Paul C.

    I would say 'fruitier', but whether or not that translates into 'sweeter' is a matter of personal taste. It may be the only way to know is to try it.

    Re: 7 or 8 YO Jim Beam

    My wife didn't like that I was collecting so much whiskey. But I did just by a fifth of the 8YO Black and am drinking it neat. It is very good. I think for now I could stop and say I have found my drink! I can drink this stuff straight up no problem. I appreciate your and others sharings on that you liked the Jim Beam Black. I like it too. I don't think its that expensive really considering how much better it tastes than the cheap stuff. But I still might go back and try the seven year old again, maybe when I am travelling and have to get a little bottle or something so I can see how it compares.

    My wife doesn't like to see so many bottles around LOL!

    Thanks,

    Bring home something that sparkles for her with every bottle and I bet she's not going to mind much

    Re: 7 or 8 YO Jim Beam very confusing

    Just to throw some confusion into the mix. I went down to Marshall TX on travel for work and got a bottle of Jim Beam Black, a half pint. It was behind the counter so I just told him to give me the half pint. The full pint looked like a funny shaped bottle but the half pint is a nice hip flask. So I am in the car checking it out and its 7 years old and 90 proof!.

    Well, the Beam Black I have at home is 8 YO and 86 proof!

    I think whiskey is cheaper in TX than KS too because a half pint of Black was 6.30 and white label four year old woulda been about 5 bucks. The full pint was ten bucks but the bottle was shaped funny like a fifth bottle so I got the half pint since I'd only be here one night and i have a fifth at home.

    The age difference is weird though.

    Paul C.

    Oh by the way, I think I'd a liked the 7YO white label travelling on the rocks cuz I think its sweeter than the black. just a thought. still haven't done the side to side.
