Made as part of Jim Beams small batch range which I've greatly enjoyed so far. Hopefully this is as good as the Bookers and the Bakers bourbon.

Nose: Has nice overtones of spice layered with large smells of buttered corn, notes of nougat and caramel, nice notes of cooked vinilla and toasted oak.

Palate: Starts sweet and candy like, notes of sugar floss and sweet popcorn, some light honey, becomes dryer with nice notes of corn and breakfast grain, hints of cocoa, spice and oak.

Finish: Still dry but notes of Nougat, Nuts and other candy bar flavours arise, hints of browned butter and oak as it fades.

A Really nice bourbon. One that ticks all my boxes as well: It's well priced, it's delicious and it's above normal strength at 50%. If you like your bourbon this one deserves your attention.
