Bourbon Tasting Notes
Jim Beam White Label Nose: A robust nose, with lots of Cola without being sickly sweet. It’s uncomplicated, but a green apple note is there with autumnal spice. Jim Beam’s better than the price point suggests as it doesn’t feel like a punishment.
Jim Beam White Label Taste: Maple syrup, cinnamon, leather: easily drinkable although slightly industrial. Classic corn taste – very simple – but enjoyable. Makes me want a girlfriend from Kentucky. Rather than over-think it, I’d generously pour with ginger ale and lime.
Jim Beam White Label Finish: Short, savoury finish. Works wonders alongside a cheese sandwich, with wholegrain mustard on nutty bread – it masks a mild solvent sensation and compliments the cereal notes.
