Released in a Limited Edition format, this monstrous bottling from Beam pays tribute to Prohibition and its repeal with a new, non chill filtered release in the company's line of bourbons.
Sweet cream, caramel, honey and melon. Not a ton going on here, but what is there is pleasant and ditches some young grain notes I get in Jim Beam White.
Medium mouth feel. Cream, caramel, a light hint of cocoa and oak. No real heat, pleasant enough.
Short to medium finish, plenty of nutty oak, cream and toffee here.
Honestly, pretty surprising. For under $20, this performs really quite well, and it was featured as a Sleeper Bourbon in 2020's Whiskey From Home for a reason.
