Jim Beam have taken some of their Kentucky bourbon and blended it with a small amount of peated Highland Scotch whisky for this limited edition release! This ‘hybrid’ release comes in a presentation gift tin.
Nose: Relaxed vanilla, a little caramelised fruit and just a hint of smoke.
Palate: More vanilla, greater oakiness, classic bourbon notes. There is a wood smoke peatiness, however, that’s more prominent on the palate tan it was on the nose (perhaps aided by some barrel char).
Finish: Wood spices and wood smoke.
Overall: Mainland Scottish peat and Kentucky bourbon, this should pique the interest of a fair few.
