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

    nice but only when you serve it really cold. A lot of cherry,sugar,cinnamon and "sweets" but where is Jim Beam Bourbon ? Good quality product , great for a weekend or birthday party.

    Found a 40% version here in the UK. Tastes very good. Quite sweet even for a bourbon and with a nice cherry flavour upfront.

    Used to love this product!!! Recent bottle tasted horrible, couldn''t figure out why. Thought maybe my taste had changed. Nope, they cut the alcohol content and now this is just abysmal. Can''t drink this crap. Bring back the original or you''ve lost a customer forever.

    I have to agree with the other reviews, the new "Black capped Red Sag " is now watered down and is missing it''s former good taste. I will no longer buy this unless it is restored to it''s original "80 proof"

    Jim Beam has now cut Red Stag Black Cherry to 70 proof and it tastes watered down now. Jim Beam has effectively taken one of my favorite flavored bourbons and made it horrendous. It now has a medicinal taste to it, like old time cough syrups. I refuse to buy this any more until they restore the original recipe!

    Yes, it may be a bit ''thick'' & ''treacle-y'', but I like the dark cherry tang in this spirit, better than the southern comfort version. Would give it 5 stars but for the ''kick'' in the head it gives me the next morning

    I am surprised on how smooth this whiskey is. I t has a very nice candy like smell. On the palate it''s a bit too sweet and the cherry flavor is dominant it is more of a cherry liqueur than a whiskey. Still for those who like sweet alcoholic drinks it would make a nice treat for them.
