Moderately full-bodied. Marmalade, honey, maple. Rounded and fragrant on the palate. Ample fruit is brought forth with rich woody components. Long, smooth, sweet and delicious finish. This small batch bourbon from Jim Beam is aged 9 years in flash-fired white oak barrels. The depth of charring forms a layer of red caramelized wood and gives the 100 proof whiskey its deep amber color and sweet flavor.
