Jim Beam K&L Exclusive Single Barrel #JB5456 Kentucky Bourbon (750ml)
While Beam may have hired Mila Kunis to do its commercials, the distillery won't need to invest much in marketing if it can continue to offer single barrels like this one to key retail accounts. Our latest selection K&L cask selection from Beam's gigantic warehouses is a bright, supple, and incredibly balanced Bourbon that brings serious value to the single barrel category. There's a lovely sweetness that envelopes the sense from the first sip and sways between sweet vanilla and earthy grains all the way across the palate to the finish. It's not an anomaly by any means; it's classic Jim Beam. But with the flurry of cinnamon and cloves on the finish and the pleasant presence of sweet charred oak still glowing minutes after you've swallowed, this is truly a keeper. A must try for those who have continually overlooked Beam's namesake label in favor of the "craftier" Booker's, Baker's, and Basil Hayden's.
