  • Excerpt: I actually bought this whiskey a few times at my local liquor store because it was very easy to drink and because it's so reasonably priced.

  • Excerpt: The finish is warming with char hash-marks and toasted marshmallows. A solid reminder of the hallmarks that built bourbon’s reputation.

  • Excerpt: hough, the most interesting thing was the lack of a yeasty profile I often get with the lower proof Jim Beams. It’s something I never get in Booker’s or Knob Creek single casks and I’m not getting it in this. Makes me wonder if it’s a result of the chill-filtering

  • Excerpt: There’s nothing wrong with young whiskey per se, but putting in a fancy bottle isn’t quite enough to get me excited about it (even at a sub-$20 price).

  • Excerpt: 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.

  • Intro:

    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.

  • Nose:

    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.

  • Taste:

    Medium mouth feel. Cream, caramel, a light hint of cocoa and oak. No real heat, pleasant enough.

  • Finish:

    Short to medium finish, plenty of nutty oak, cream and toffee here.

  • Overall:

    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.
