Jim Beam Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey
Another reliable release from Jim Beam, which according to the company, has been distilled in a pre-Prohibition style. As most Rye whiskeys, this one isn’t afraid to make its presence known on your taste buds. Rye whiskeys have notoriously been considered as a whiskey thatis ‘not for everyone’, and the Jim Beam Rye falls comfortably under that description. For the ones who love it, there could be nothing better but for the ones that don’t like it, they might never really develop an affinity for it.
So is the Jim Beam Rye any good? Definitely. It brings to the fore everything that people love about Rye whiskey, and has been known to really elevate a whiskey cocktail. Quite spicy, as one might expect, and there is that caramelized Oak, some hints of vanilla and leather. It’s not the smoothest Rye whiskeys out there, but it is definitely not one of the bad ones. Famously scored an impressive 92 points at the Ultimate Spirits Challenge in 2015.

More whiskies in the league
Jim Beam White Bourbon
With Jim Beam white label, it all comes down to what you’re looking for. Compared to other budget bourbons, it’s probably one of the best inexpensive bourbons on the market. Many people are also probably planning to mix it with something else. If you’re someone that doesn’t want to have a strong bourbon taste in your mixed drink, Jim Beam is your bourbon. Its mellow flavors will probably blend well with just about anything. But, if you’re someone that wants to sip their bourbon and enjoy its finer points, Jim Beam white label is not your bourbon. This is why Jim Beam also sells their Double Aged and Single Barrel, not to mention their small batch series. Again, it all comes down to what you’re looking for in a bourbon and how much you want to spend.

HEALTH BENEFITS OF WHISKY
An Irish man once said, “What whisky will not cure, there is no cure for.” Of course, the world has since found out that he was quite right. Over the years, many researchers have found out that this liquid sunshine contains a plethora of health benefits. But, what has today become a drink for the affluent class was once upon a time enjoyed by the cowboys and construction workers, and was even used as an antiseptic on battlefields. What’s even more surprising is that in the 1920s, whiskey was considered as medicine and sold in pharmacies as a tonic. Intriguing, right? So, whether you like to sip on a tiny glass of Jim Beam Whiskey, or prefer to enjoy your Jack Daniel’s Whiskey on the rocks, know that every drop of this fine drink is helping your body in some way or another.
