Color: Pale Amber
Nose: Mostly Oak and Cherry
Taste: Cherry NyQuil
Finish: Sweet and Lingering
Score: I will not be scoring this as it would be unfair!
This was the last bottle of the four pack of samplers I bought. I want to preface this article with the simple statement of: “I DON”T LIKE FLAVORED WHISKEY”. With that said, I thought I would go ahead and try it again. My first time was Fireball, which I didn’t like either, but I like cherries and whiskey so what the hell…
The color is a decent pale amber color you would expect from Jim Beam. That is where the comparison stops. This is a college drink. Something frat boys keep around for dates. No discerning Whisk(e)y drinker would enjoy this. I took a sip and had to fight the urge to spit it out.
This stuff tastes like nasty cherry flavored off-brand NyQuil. I love Jim Beam, my last two reviews have been great. The Jim Beam Black, and the Jim Beam Devils Cut were awesome. I actually bought 2 bottles of Black and one of the Devils Cut I liked them that much. This stuff on the other hand was a total disaster.
I finally got it down and the finish is saccharin cherry sweetness, and like cough syrup, it seems to coat the throat. I was completely disgusted with this. I poured the rest down the drain. Not something I would by or accept even if it was free. I have definitely learned my lesson.
Until Next Time,
