Subtlety different from the 2004, but still wonderful
Somewhat fruitier on the nose and has a lot more rye punch and oak than last years version (2005)
The 2011 release is somewhat less fruitier on the noise and is generally a bit lighter in character despite one of the higher barrel proofs in a while.
A bit pricey for what it is.
A stunning achievement in both whiskey distilling and aging. While Parker Beam did not live to see this whiskey bottled I am sure he would be proud of it.
I’m pretty sure if Parker Beam was still alive he would drink this – it’s that good.
Delicious, complex and smooth everything you might want for a great price.
A very unique bourbon, great example of a young, but well done whiskey.
Decent if a trifle simple. Available almost anywhere and a reliable choice.
Interesting variation from the Jim Beam Family but a bit overshadowed by the wood and lacking some finesse and balance overall.
A very interesting bourbon flavored with brandy. Well worth a try.
Interesting whiskey with malty chocolate overtones to it.
Nicely done 12 year old whiskey. Nicely balanced age and wood profile.
A failed experiment in my opinion
A premium single barrel version of an old standard.
Light, easy to drink, but not a lot going on flavor wise. Simple, easy, and cheap.
For a Jim Beam product actually quite outstanding.
Not only do you get the extra proof but a lot of subtle aging characteristics and aromas that would have been lost in the proofing down process! Worth the extra money for the extra proof and all the goodness that comes with it!
An altogether much drier version than the A120 Release.
A nice somewhat incremental improvement over the last batch with a bit more dark fruit flavors than the last batch. Nicely Done !
Delicious, complex and cheap for what you get.
It is very rare for us to chose a distiller twice in a row to have a product as spirits of the month but Last Shot Distilling has come out with another great product
Possibly one of the best bourbons to come out of New York State so far, by a distillery you probably never heard of.
An outstanding whiskey for a young small barrel bourbon from a distillery barely older than it is .
Damn fine for such a young whiskey.
This bourbon uses wheat rather than rye in its mashbill resulting in a lighter taste and body.
Maker’s Mark with a big infusion of French Cognac Oak
Complex and interesting especially for such a young whiskey.
An older style bourbon that just seems a bit tired and light compared to their others.
Old Crow lacks character- even bad character- it’s just bland, harsh and ultimately pointless.
Old Fitzgerald 15 Year Old is a nice whiskey, but I think it is a bit pricey for what it is.It lacks the complexity I would look for in that age and price range personally speaking.
