Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Lew Bryson for Whisky Advocate

    Smells like sweet, dead-ripe cherries, mashed up in bourbon with some brown sugar and just a dust of cinnamon. It's sweet, a bit thick, but 80 proof warming, and the bourbon - the Beam cinnamon note comes out clearer now - is dominant over the cherries here. The finish sees more cinnamon, even a hint of barrel oak, and manages to dry out a bit. 83 Points

    Very sweet compared to other Bourbons but great for an Old Fashioned. You won’t need any sugar.

    I have just bought a fifth of Jim Beam Red Stag because I like cherries and Jim Beam, so I figured why not? I also got a bottle of Cherry Coke as a chaser and I like it more than I expected. I have been drinking Devil's Cut for a while now and this is a nice change of pace. I did notice that my bottle of Red Stag is only 70 proof and not 80, I'm not sure if they changed it or its because I live in America. But overall I rather like it.

    Thought it is too sweet to begin with, changes well to more bourbon but still not great. Far to much cheery for me, quite sickly after a coule of nips...sorry could be better!

    I was disappointed. It was way too sweet, tasting more like syrup than bourbon. I tried it because they were out of the regular. I prefer the unflavored but it may work on top of pancakes.

    This is potentially a very good product, but as it stands at the moment, it is far too sweet. It tastes fine to start with, especially over ice, but then seems to develop an almost sickly sweetness. Someone also mentioned the cherry flavour as being 'artificial', well, I think I'd go along with that. Again, possibly due to the sweetness. As I said at the start, this could be a real good drink. Just needs to ditch the sucrose.

    Its as smooth as smooth gets, heavy bourbon taste and that lasting cherry aftertaste, well rounded and lingering

    Had to buy this from the UK as it’s no longer available in Australia, got here quicker than a parcel from Perth but the taxes killed me, ended up at $80 a bottle I’m going to drink it slower now.

    As a Talisker drinker, I was intrigued to try this, when it was bought as a present for me. It really is a 'marmite, love it or hate it drink in my opinion. I love it, especially as I like cherries and this, over ice or a drop or two of water, to release the aromas of cherry and cinnamon, is spot on. Well worth a try.

    80 proof is amazing but weaker stuff is horrible. Always check before you buy. Weaker stuff has no flavour.

    Didn't really hit the spot for me. I found it tasted neither of whiskey,cherry,or a pleasant blend. Not terrible mind,far from it. I'm definitely going to finish the bottle I've bought just,I'd be surprised if I buy another. Worth a try mind if like me,it intrigues u.

    It is amazingly smooth, and when mixed with pepsi it just completes itself for a rich fulfilling flavor.

    Seriously is this the best life has to offer drank some of my girlfriends thinking it was bourbon, I could taste bourbon a bit then got some artificial cherry taste. Overpriced by about ?17. If you have to mix spirits with cherry ,coke or lemonade then you obviously don't like spirits or you would drink them straight
