Nose of popcorn, sugar, candy corn, fresh apples, and raw nuts.  Palate is sweet and feels watery, delivers on the nose with a caramel apple flavor.  Finish is long and alcoholy.  I do actually like this, and though it's full of rough edges -- shall we say it could use some "refinement" -- Beam is just good 'ol drinkin' bourbon.  It don't need no refinement!  Drinks fine neat if you don't mind the heat, goes well on the rocks, and does great as a mixer.

This has a light nose with candy, medicinal notes and some rye notes. The palate comes on sweet with some medicinal/rye type notes and ends with a bitterness that carries into the finish. It's not good, but it's certainly not horrible.

N: Lightly spiced with a very faint touch of nutmeg, pepper, mainly a light bit of rye. Some caramel. Thin, a bit watery, some straight alcohol notes. 

 

P: A light trace of wood, corn sweetness, slightly vegetal. Caramel creeping in at the edges. A bit of the Beam raw sugar taste and some building heat. Watery and light. 

 

F: A bit hot, slighlty pepper, a little show of wood. Slightly sour presence. Faintly doughy. 

 

Watery and unremarkable. Fine for mixing, mostly unobjectionable neat but an awful boring pour.
