    Bourbon — Kentucky, USA

    I think this release showcases some interesting expressions from Jim Beam that aren't always noticable in other releases. This batch has some dark fruit, plum raisin, cherry which I usually associate with BT bottles with a nice hint of the peanutty flavors from 2020-01. If you can find this under 95 and can afford to, I think this is a great pickup.

    This bottle does it's job very well, a great pour to help prepare for a barrel proof. This shares well with friends and will cause some upsets in a blind, I think everyone should own a bottle in their collection.

    A real good, inexpensive, "bourbon-y bourbon". This is great for nights where you don't know what you want to pour, for nights when you're working up to a high proof, for when you want to have a solid glass of bourbon.

    This bottle packs a punch, lots of heat. The flavor is very strong as well, lots of depth and maybe the most vanilla I've gotten from a Booker's in a long time, and I'm a fan. If you dislike Booker's then *surprise* you won't like this. I know it's more expensive now, I know it used to be a $60 bottle, but here we are. If you're reading this you're probably looking for an excuse to buy it, so... Buy it.

    This bottle is incredible, I have 2 on my shelf and I feel like I'm running low. This is a 50pf that punches way above it's weight, I'm confident this would do very well I a blind against barrel proofs. It's vanilla bean, it's chocolatey, it's spicy, it's one of my favorite all time bottles.

    If you can find a store pick of this bottle- buy it. I really enjoy this bottle, and it is so different than anything else I have on the shelf. A good amount of honey and citrus and a light salty finish. The bottle is beautiful, the liquid is beautiful, what's not to like here- buy it

    If you're reading this, don't put the bottle down. Don't wait until next time, yes the label/name is tacky but the whiskey is legit. I very much enjoyed this neat and bought a bottle the day after trying a pour from a friend of mine. Flavors are quite developed for a bottle this cheap... Buy it

    I think this is closer to a 3.9 but that's not an option so here we are. I am really fond of this bottle and maybe if it wasn't a BT bourbon it would be more kind to it but they've become so hard to find anywhere near MSRP that I can't give an unbiased review. The flavors were very very good, proofed correctly (for my palate), with a nice finish that had nice depth. As far as non barrel proof bottles go- this is a very good option.

    A solid scotch, but I don't drink scotch. The flavors offered are rich and definitive, but a bit too floral for me to crave but for rare occasions when I need a break from Bourbon and Rye. I appreciate that this bottle takes a stand offering bold flavors compared to other blue scotches where the flavor profile is largely muted.

    A fine drink, I wasn't expecting it to blow me away- it didn't. Makes for a nice shelf trophy but it will mostly gather dust on my shelf. I don't often have reason to pour from a *sometimes* $300 bottle, and for that price I'd much prefer 3-5 different bottles.
