Proof66 Notes

Jim Beam Signature Craft is a line of "craft" bourbons that is meant to take advantage of the best of Beam's large, impressive inventory of whiskey. The Quarter Cask Finished edition is the third expression from the Signature line using bourbon aged for 5 years in traditional barrels and then given an additional aging in "quarter casks." These are smaller barrels (a "quarter" of the size so approximately 12 gallons) and an additional 4+ years are spent on the theory that the bourbon has greater contact with the wood in smaller spaces. This suggests a greater oak-forward flavor on the whiskey.

Quite possibly my favorite of the Beam Signature Craft series here. On the nose I get caramel, leather, and oak. There's no alcohol or burn at all so you can really take a deep whiff of the whiskey in the glencairn. The palate has similar characteristics to the nose, and all in great balance. The first thing you detect is the caramel and a honey like sweetness, then as you swallow the oaky spice and a hint of smoke gradually intensify and hang around for a while on the finish. After being disappointed with Beam's brandy finished bourbon I didn't have high hopes for this one, but this one is fantastic. I paid $32 for my bottle and it drinks well above that price point.

That's good to hear... I feel like Jim Beam should be good at this stuff. After all, they ought to have some great whiskey in their warehouses somewhere if they can find it! I've been thinking about trying the Sig Craft stuff for a while. I'll look out for this one.
