The Devil’s Advocate, Jim Beam.

The Devil is in the details and boy does this thing have a plethora of details. Ironically, it’s more angelic than it’s name lets on and is quite ethereal. For $30.00 (Maine. Check your region for price.) You get something that is quite better than it’s normal, everyday counter part On the nose is a peppery, sweet vanilla, low ethanol scent. On the palate, you get wood notes, cherry, vanilla, apple, typical Kentuckian whiskey, peaty flavor, along with a slight peppery burn and a smooth, sweet finish. The best way to drink this is neat, as you really get all those great flavors. Drinking it with a bit of water turns it into normal Jim Beam and wouldn’t be worth the premium price. I haven’t mixed it with any soda, so I don’t know it mixes, but since it reminds me a bit of Captain Morgan’s Spiced Rum, I bet it would mix well. Shooting it is smooth as glass. Overall, a very good whiskey at a decent price.
