Jim Beam Signature Craft Whole Rolled Oat 11 Year Old
Bourbon 375 ML Pint
Jim Beam Signature Craft's Whole Rolled Oat Bourbon is
part of the Harvest Bourbon Collection. This series of six unique bourbons
using differing grains and aged at least eleven years shows off the
experimental side of Beam, and allows bourbon enthusiasts to explore new grains
and how they contribute to the overall flavor of each of these bourbons.
Aged 11 years, this is a mild, light-bodied bourbon
that’s easy to sip. The oats mellow the spirit, giving it an almost nutty
flavor. They also introduce a welcome sweetness while retaining just enough bite
and warmth to keep things balanced, complex, and interesting. Enjoy it neat or
on the rocks.
TASTING NOTES "Nuanced is the most descriptive word
for this bourbon. Fans of big and bold bourbons need not apply. The bouquet is
light, with a solid grain note, medium oak, vanilla and caramel. After a few
minutes in the glass, a distinct oat aroma appears, and there is a mild
nuttiness in the background. On the palate, this red-amber liquid is deft and
restrained. Very mild spice notes, particularly cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg,
with medium oak and light grain making appearances. A quick finish with more
light cinnamon, reminiscent of Big Red chewing gum appears and then fades
quickly with a touch of mint at the very end.
