The nose is understated with light rye and caramel. The palate has sweet hot cocoa, simple syrup and light medicinal notes but not a lot of rye character, which is typical of Beam ryes (though this one is supposed to have a higher rye mashbill than their standard rye). The finish is sweet and mild.

 

This is a perfectly decent whiskey that's soft and sweet but has very little rye character. As with most Beam rye whiskeys, it's a good rye for people who don't like rye. Those folks who like their whiskey "smooth" will love it.

This has a beautiful, old sherry nose with some fruit. The palate is sweet, fruity sherry with just a touch of sulfur at the end. It drinks strong for the proof. The finish has sherry and light sulfur nots.

 

This is a very well composed, classic sherried malt. Great stuff!

n:  WTF?!  Well, that's new.  Not bad but new.  Intense spices and sugar.  Condensed clover.  Very unique.

 

p:  The honey is there.  Is this whisky?  Almost more of a honey liqueur really.  They floral honey is fairly dominant over all else. It's easy to enjoy, difficult to categorize.

n:  Cashews and a field of springtime flowers.  

 

p:   Mildly malty.  Struggles to find a flavor.  Not helped by being watered down to 40% as it feels thin.  No off notes at all.  It's probably what the upper-tier blends shoot for (and charge more for).  Blind tasters would probably not guess it as whisky given how gentle it is on the palate.

n:  Caramel and shellac

 

p:  Young but not harsh.  Lemony hardwood.  Definitely not complex.  It comes it.  It goes.  A bit to fast, really.
