Jim Beam Signature Craft High Rye Bourbon 11 Year
Jim Beam // Kentucky, USA
From Jim Beam's Signature Craft line comes the Harvest Bourbon Collection, a series of six unique bourbons experimenting with different grains with each offering in the series being eleven years old. The Signature Craft High Rye Bourbon was distilled before the current rye whiskey craze had taken off. For fans of rye-forward whiskey, this bottling is a classic high-rye bourbon whiskey. Keep in mind, the $49.99 suggested retail is for a 375ml bottle.
BourbonProduced anywhere in USA; Mash bill of at least 51% corn; aged in new, charred oak barrels.

"This is a classic rye-heavy bourbon nose. Big cinnamon notes, with red apple, fresh mint, oak and freshly baked scones all appear in addition to barbecue smoke and saddle leather. In the mouth, this is a big, almost chewy bourbon. Cinnamon, ginger and toasted oak pair with apple pie, baking spices and a hint of rye grain and is backed by a light vanilla-pound-cake note towards the end. The finish is warm, and relatively quick, with fresh spearmint, cinnamon and Earl Grey tea flavors."
