This isn't terrible and it isn't great. It's just okay to me. This is very affordable, however, and it could be a nice bourbon to share with friends. Just not your best friends. Save some Blanton's for that.

Like liquid candy barrel aged just for me. This is my go to value whiskey. I really dont buy any cheaper whiskey unless l am making 7 and 7s. So much better than the white label they should make this their flagship brand.

My "go to" bourbon for visitors when I don't want to share a premium brand. A great value. Much better than the white label.

This was a pleasant surprise... Far far better than I expected. The flavor is rich (char?). I can see this being my new go to at bars. The other praise I'll add is that we tried this along side Evan Williams 2003, a good bourbon in its own right, this was the clear winner...

Better than the white label. Everything is nicely balanced. A must for your bar/liquor cabinet.

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.
By: jfatt340 (15) 8/5/2010Cheers!(1)
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.
