Jim Beam is a very underappreciated whiskey.Jim Beam Black is a low cost very good quality sipping whiskey. A guy I know told me about it last year and I liked it. I went to get a bottle this past weekend and it was sold out. Went to 4 different stores and all sold out. I appears I aint the only one that likes it. Each shop said there will be no more until next year because they didnt make enough for the demand. Taste like a 100 dollar bottle. So I got Woodford instead because that was my preference before I found the Black.
I asked for a whiskey and Coke once at a bar. The bartender asked me what was wrong with the whiskey that I had to water it down.The good stuff is wasted on me because I generally only use whiskey to water down my coke.
If you happen to like whiskey & coke, I recommend Legacy.
Its not quite as smooth as Pendleton but still has that sweet Canadian blend taste.
I did receive a bottle of Basil Hayden recently so I will give it a try.
Don't start on any highlands Scotch, then. Most Basil is pretty mild stuff. I keep a bottle of that around.As I posted earlier, I received a bottle of Basil Hayden and tried it out tonight.... it tastes just like a bag of peat moss smells.
