Im surprised that this does not cost more money. I find this very smooth and quite enjoyable. Perfect for sipping!

A little harsh straight. Smooths out and becomes more complex with a dash of water. 3 stars straight. 4 stars with water

I'm just not a Jim Beam fan. Don't know if it's the rye in the mash bill or what but it's always a bit unenjoyable to me. This product definitely benefits from the extra aging and gains some real flavor and complexity. I'd drink this with just a touch of water but would be wishing for some Wild Turkey or Jack Daniel's in this price range.

Quite nice! Much better than what you think of when you hear "Jim Beam". A surprisingly good find and very reasonably priced.

Perfect! Amazing bourbon for the price.

As a mixer, this is a good bourbon. It has too much bite to be had neat, and you'll have to wait for the ice to melt before consuming it on the rocks. If you really like Jim Beam white, it is a smoother version of the elixir. But there are many more drinkable bourbons out there in this price range.

Reasonable price for an 8yr old bourbon. A bit drier than regular Beam but it makes the best Old Fashioned I've had.

JB Black is a good bourbon with a sweet smell and taste. Although, this is not as smooth as it should be considering it has been aged 8 years (Jack Daniels is actually smoother). Expect fiery dragon breath when taking shots. Mix with coke to remove the harshness and to really bring out this bourbon's sweetness.

Overhyped , did not have the smoothness that you would expect from a 8year aged liquor.

When someone asks for a mixed bourbon drink you will not feel slighted because JBlack is such a great value.

This is by far the best bourbon on the planet for the money. An absolute must have for any bar.
