Raided Score is a conversion from an external site's score, to our in house uniform scoring system. Please see the FAQ for more.

  • Intro:

    Aged a bit longer than standard Jim Beam White Label, Jim Beam Black Extra Aged occupies the same shelf space as the Double Oaked expression.

  • Nose:

    Caramel, honey, light funky peanut brittle. A little bit of youth here, but not a ton.

  • Taste:

    Sweet vanilla bean, a light hint of caramel. Faint oak, but also a bit of grainy youth.

  • Finish:

    Medium finish, pleasant oak and caramel. No major complexity, but plenty of character, from the extra time aging.

  • Overall:

    Honestly not bad. Not great, but it’s good enough for an occasional sipper and cocktail duty.

  • Score:

    4
