Answering the call for a bolder, burlier rye, Jim Beam master distiller Fred Noe has turned to one of the distillery's oldest recipes. Pre-Prohibition Style aims to recreate the rowdy frontier style of a rye from the days before the Roaring '20s.

Tasting Notes

"This is a rye that tastes like what you think a rye whiskey would taste like: big rye spice and pepper on the nose, but also strawberries, chocolate covered cherries, and faint floral notes. Flavor is big and bold, with a burly helping of spice alongside a medicinal tang. Licorice, bitter mint, and caramel come along for the ride. It's heavy and substantial, the kind of whiskey that holds up to a cocktail while still being sippable neat. "
