Member Reviews and Ratings of Jim Beam Black Label
My second favorite besides crown royal black when I need to knock the edge off. Smooth but bold, have to take easy on this one though. Enjoy in small quantities per sitting.
Better than the white label.
Great everyday bourbon which is excellent for the price point. A little on the sweet side but very smooth.
The shooter I tried has the "Extra Aged" name, rather than Triple Aged. Flaviar may want to update their site to reflect this new branding. I enjoyed it straight with a splash of water. Smooth and tasty but not overly refined. Just what you might expect I think.
This is my go to daily drink. No competition at this price point.
It was ok, nothing special that I’d want to drink very often
This is my standard go to. This is great solo or in drinks. Never fails me.
Great budget buy!
Ok on the palet
Smokey with a bite, I'd recommend this with a mixer, a bit harsh neat, but has a powerful finish.
Very flavorful compared to others with a pleasant sweetness but not over the top
Too sweet for my taste
A goo go to/ every day bourbon. Smooth and warm
My go to
Full flavored, but smooth
My absolute favorite for mixing with cola, or coffee.
Very solid. Great for the price, with more complexity than you'd expect
Cheap enough to mix, yet a pretty decent bourbon
Should be a staple of every bar. When you say boubon, this is what it should taste like.
Surprising taste for the price, a big mark above white label Jim, vanilla finish is best note. Great for a mix, can sip in a pinch
Easy to drink. I prefer it on the rocks.
The Jim Beam Black Label has a nose of creamy vanilla, oak, caramel, and corn. It is pleasant, but not powerful. The vanilla and caramel continue into the palate with a sip that is sweet with a consistency that is just thin enough to be called thin and with just enough oil to keep it from being dry. Towards the back, charred oak, pepper, and cinnamon lead to a finish where the vanilla, caramel, and oak linger for a shorter than expected time. It's got all of the classic bourbon flavors and feelings but not in a way I'll remember or crave. Excellent quality for the price and a very good introductory or well bourbon for your home bar. I would say it's something to keep on hand as it is well rounded and will be an excellent first choice for cocktails and a decent sipper, if there is nothing better on hand.
Oaky nose with hints of cinnamon
Taste is shallow and light on the finish but decent with vanilla and more oak spice. This is actually a pretty decent bottle to have around for novices aka a nice Well Bourbon. It won the IWSC best Bourbon for 2019.
nice and smooth
For the money, it's hard to beat this Bourbon. It's my everyday.
I actually like the Apple flavor but you didn't have it listed. I am a southern girl and our home bars have to have Jack, Jim, and Southern Comfort or you AIN'T REAL SOUTHERN.
Best bourbon at this price point
Caramel, oak and spice dominate the flavors. Not 100% sure it should be considered "world's best" but it is a good one. A repeat entry on my liquor shelf.
Pretty good "go to" for mid-shelf.
Another go to. Much better flavor than the white label.
So so, Jim Bean is my go to everyday but I think I'll stick with white label.
If you like the taste of ethanol...decent mixer, but I didn’t like it on its own.
Very surprising as I'm not a big fan of Jim Beam (white Label) Smooth taste mixes well or just over ice.
Seems fairly thin. Not much of a flavor. Only alcohol at the end.
Tasty. A little sweeet
Love it. Go to drink
Very smooth, good everyday type of bourbon.
Нормально так. Определённо выдержка пошла па пользу.
Excellent flavors, not to sweet
Quite good, bold vanilla sweetness up front with a strong spicy and oaky finish. Makes an excellent sipping whiskey for a pairing with a medium cigar on poker night with the boys.
Thought is was good little smoother than the regular Jim beam
