This is my go to on a daily basis. Maybe not as complex as pricier bourbons, but it is an excellent pour and very affordable. I think it delivers well for the price point

I ran a "tournament" of sixteen everyday whiskies--mostly bourbons. Jim Beam Black was the winner, edging out Evan Williams Bottled-in-Bond. Smooth and drinkable, with a lovely nose of apple and spice. Congrats, Jim Beam!

Great taste. Very smooth. Great nightcap. I enjoy it with an ice ball, but smooth enough without it.

Very good , smooth and tasty
Because of the liquor’s aging process variation, bourbon’s colors range from light amber to dark caramel and each bottle must contain at least 40% ABV. Bourbon can only be called bourbon if it’s aged in an oak barrel; barrels must be new and are pre-charred to help the liquid extract as much flavor as possible from the wood.
While both whiskey and bourbon are made from the same base ingredients (a predominantly corn mash, yeast and water), a spirit can only be called bourbon if it’s crafted in the United States, surpasses a minimum 40% ABV and is aged in new, charred, white oak barrels. Bourbons are generally on the younger side of the whiskey family (compared to older whiskies like scotch) and thus deliver a sweeter profile.
Raise a glass to science: While rye, barley and wheat all contain the gluten protein, the actual gluten is removed during the bourbon’s distillation process, in which the gluten molecules are separated from the actual distillate used to make the final product.
