Jim Beam Signature Craft 12

Country: USA
Region: Kentucky
Type: Bourbon
Bottler: Distiller
ABV: 43%
Score: 89 points

This Bourbon is scheduled for release in August of 2013, and marks the start of a new series of small-batch Bourbons under the Jim Beam label. The nose has notes of oak campfire smoke, honey, mild vanilla, cocoa, and a hint of molasses. The taste is chewy and mouth-filling with a good chili powder spiciness, tangy barbecue sauce with a hint of vinegar, and sweet touches of honey and brown sugar at the end. The sweetness on the finish is balanced with a nice oaky, dusty, and dry touch on top with just a hint of spice. (February, 2013)
