Jim Beam Black took home the International Wine & Spirits Competition’s Bourbon Trophy in 2016.
"It's got a good shape. This is a man's drink"
Anytime we can do a review with friends we have a great time. Getting to watch Larry drink bourbon was PRICELESS.
Man this review was a blast, we had special guests Marco Conti and Larry Vishak of Barber & The Brain podcast. The four of us reviewed Jim Beam Black and while it was not scored very high, it is a solid bourbon for the price. Full disclosure, Larry is not a fan of bourbon, so let’s just say the taste test was a little rough. We recommend you watch this episode on Facebook or YouTube, Larry’s reaction is a must see. Per the usual, we look at 5 different categories in our own terms: Bottle, Appearance, Smell, Value, and Taste. Enjoy the review, drop us a comment and make sure you subscribe to our podcast, YouTube, like us on Facebook and Instagram.
