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.
