Member Ratings and Notes
The nose on this one is pretty traditional bourbon with caramel notes, but it has a sweetness that's reminiscent of old, dusty bourbons. The palate is very unBeam. It's got strong mineral notes, almost like a Dickel (and tasting blind, I would definitely have guessed Dickel), which give it a lot more texture and depth than a typical Beam. Those mineral notes really blow up on the finish, which is quite long. It's quirky, but I like it. 
Rounded body with the balance between the wood and corn coming together nicely. It has a nice, creamy vanilla center that is enjoyable and tasty. Comes off as an all-corn bourbon, but the brown rice really changes the flavour profile (meaning I would not guess this is Jim Beam). Of the entire line-up I liked this one best. [B/B-]
