JIM BEAM Rye 7 years old 40%

Good fatness on the nose lays the ground for attractive juicy fruit and hard candy. Firm spices spearheaded by cloves broadens the palette.

More or less a continuation of the nose with some chewy toffee added for good measure. Alluring spice bite.

Lemon cough drops aided by ozone-fresh spices. Perhaps a bit on the short side.

I have no idea whether this is a discontinued whisky or merely limited to certain regions. It´s a 1000 ml bottle which points firmly towards an airport existence. Perhaps not as fun as the younger and zestier standard version but retains enough qualities to be able to save the day.

Rating: 8/10
