This has a great old dusty nose with tons of caramel and some oak but then a few soapy notes come out. The palate is much drier than I would have expected with medicinal notes and some spice but not much beyond that. It's dense in a way that it seems like there should be more to it, but if there are more layers of flavor, they aren't showing themselves. The finish is dry with some spice and then medicinal.

 

This had some good notes, and it's much more complex than most current Beam, but it felt like it was missing something. These decanters sometimes have looser seals than regular bottles, and this one had seen some evaporation, so I wouldn't use this to pass judgment generally on older Beam bourbon.

Butterscotch candies in the nose, varnish, figs, leather. Palate is sweet and nice, fairly what the palate advertised. The finish is lacking though, it lasts at length mostly in an alcoholic, spiritous way. Not quite the Stagg I once loved, but still great stuff.

Lots of brown sugar in the nose becomes a somewhat buttery glass with fall fruits and caramel, then lots of dried darker fruits, figs, etc. Certainly pleasing and tasty, though perhaps lacking a certain magic seen in previous releases. As most great bourbons do, this has more to reveal as the glass drains, and it becomes a sweet-enough bourbon with a great tannic chew lasting just long enough to wish it were longer.

The nose is light with canned pears then more malty notes and some sea breeze.  I was expecting fruit but the palate is all salty malt. It's surprisingly dry.  The finish has nori and sea water, and maybe a touch of white wine.

 

Very nice.
