Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey […]

In almost every shop we can meet the basic version of Jim Beam, lets call it classic. Jim Beam 6 years old - Triple Aged appeared less frequently and now we have a new one to the collection - Jim Beam Double Oak Twice barreled, 43% ABV. What in this case double oak or twice barreled mean? The point is that the distillate is poured into fresh charred barrels made of American white oak, and then after some time of maturation is again poured into fresh charred barrels made of American white oak. Just like the classic Jim Beam would be poured again into fresh barrels for some time of mataration. [caption id=attachment_6572 align=alignnone width=1602] Jim Beam Double Oak Twice Barreled[/caption] What such an operation has given us, lets see: C: deep amber; N: here can be no doubt that we are dealing with bourbon, very sweet, layers of vanilla, toffee and caramel, coconut, but also raisins and milk chocolate, after a while, here is also something sharper, like a little bit of chili and distant traces of burnt wood; T: sweet, vanilla, toffee and caramel with the addition of something smoky or smoked and a pinch of chili, over the time it gets quite dry, a trace of grapefruit and maybe a little bit of candied orange appears here too; F: medium length, still sweet passes to dry. Score: 80. Jim Beam Double Oak Twice Barreled is a nice bourbon for a relaxing sipping. Quite typical for a species single direction - ie. toward the sweet notes is here spiced with a hint of chili, which gives the drink the character.

    Wandering through the streets of downtown Chicago, I came across a grocery store, which was not at all easy, with all these skyscrapers. Inside, I met the shelf with bourbons. I could not pass by indifferently, the choice fell on Russells Reserve Small Batch 10 years old Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey, bottled 90 proof - 45% ABV. Despite the less well-known name this is basically Wild Turkey with specified age. So after a while I ended up with a glass in my hand in a hotel room....

    So far, here appeared only one Bourbon and it was a classic Jim Beam. Time for another representative from Kentucky, Makers Mark. Recently, in the world of Bourbon became loud, as the manufacturer intended to reduce the ABV. However, because of the criticism, they decided to leave 45% ABV. Bravo, a company that listens to its customers. Probably the main reason for trying to reduce the ABV was, present also in the Scotch or Japanese whisky, growth in demand and declining stocks. The price...
