As an avid bourbon drinker (though not necessarily what you’d call an aficionado), I approached this previously unseen ready-to-drink four-pack on the bottle shop shelf with undiluted anticipation – after all, it carries the Jim Beam promise of quality, so what could possibly go wrong?
And my longtime faith in the longtime brand was upheld – this drop is quality-plus in the usually watered down and sugary RTD market.
This is by far my favourite premixed drink. Let alone just bourbons. It is so smooth it just trickles down the throat and has a pure aftertaste. By pure I mean, you don't drink it and get one flavour then taste the spirits or something in the sfter taste. Its like the after taste was as specially formulated as the drink it self.
Smooth, rich flavour, strong without too much of a 'spirit' taste, light on the fizz so you can slam it down fast. (Where have I heard that before?)
nothing really. A lot of people say its too expensive but I have not noticed that. Maybe a few dollars more per case.
