Jim Beam Rye Reviews

Very disappointing. Too harsh and not worth the premium price attached to it: Buffalo Trace and Wild Turkey in the next price bracket down are far better Bourbons. Don’t understand how it got such high ratings?
I bought this rye whiskey a few days ago, I was hesitant at first, because I usually buy single barrel Woodford Reserve, which is an absolutely wonderful whiskey. However, I was a little curious and a little tighter on money this week, so I decided to give Jim Beam Rye a try. To my surprise, I've actually enjoyed it very much. Obviously it has that Jim Beam familiarity to it. It's very spicy and peppery, with hints of vanilla, some cherry, a softer but noticable flavor of white oak. All around not a bad whiskey at all, I'd definitely buy this again for a camping trip, or small bonfire with friends. I give Jim Beam Rye, a four out of five.
My first impression of this whiskey was that I'd left the ice too long before my first sip, but having gone back for seconds straight up it becomes obvious that this is a smooth sippin' whiskey. There's a familiar spicy edge in the initial hit, but that quickly fades. The mouth feel also feels a little thinner than other examples in the class like Jack Daniels Rye and Bulliet Bourbon Rye. For the price, it's a good buy, and it mixes well with either a lime tonic water or ginger ale. In summary, a great whiskey for novices or your grandma but leaves a serious drinker wanting something more complex
My first rye whiskey. I love it. Very smooth on the pallet. Much better than original Beam. Love the smooth spiciness. One of my new favourites. Very enjoyable drink.
A lovely drink. Think of a soft, balanced bourbon. Very agreeable.
Let it sit for a few minutes, and it opens up, that classic sweet vanilla Jim Beam nose and taste with the spiciness of rye coming in the end, nice sweet and minty aftertaste. One of the thing I like the most about Jim Murray, is that what he likes bears no relations to how much things cost, seeing this this rye made his best of list a few year's back, knew I needed to try it, and is not displeased at all that I did!
