This is what allowed me to start to enjoy bourbon. It is sweet but that helps when you are a newbie.

Hi bbwobbly... staff editor here. No shame in a little sweet! People have been doing that to smooth out the taste of alcohol for centuries! You might find that mixing a little Red Stag with unflavored, regular bourbon will mix nicely. The sweet will help out the bourbon but still allow you to enjoy the richness of barrel-aged bourbon. Plus, you can use whatever ratios you like!

Good but not great. Suffers the same fate as many cherry spirits.. being a tad medicinal. Shines when mixed.

Doesn't Jim Beam make enough shitty bourbons already?? Why did they need this one? At least for the price, it's really no worse than Knob Creek. Devil's Cut and Makers Mark are the inly Beam products that are even decent. Red Stag sucks. If you need to mix bourbon with something else to make it drinkable, you're drinking shitty bourbon.

Maybe this works in a mixed drink... Tasted like Cherry Cough Syrup (as many have mentioned) over ice.  Sweet enough as if to cover some foul medicinal flavor.  Did not like on the rocks at all though some may be able to make an argument for mixing with Cola or some other strongly flavored mixer.  Gave me the shivers it was so sweet.

Beating a dead horse here, but definitely too sweet. Too much like cherry cough syrup.

As mentioned early it pretty much tastes like cherry cough syrup. It was too sweet for me and I usually dont mind sweet drinks. I tried it on the rocks and with coke and did not care for either.

Neat this makes me think of Cherry cough syrup. on ice it was very drinkable. Per the person drinking the Stag it makes a good 'Cherry' Cola

Far too sweet and candylike for anyone over the legal drinking age or some measure of taste. I can see this being wildly popular with with young women ( and maybe men who don't know any better). The kind of drink where you wake up in a alley, in bed with a stranger, or in jail. Given the sweetness the hangover and sickness that will probably result from over indulgence would be of near terminal vileness. Avoid.

Quite liked it. Easy to drink, smooth on the rocks, and just sweet enough to take away the sting of bourbon.

It's not a he-man bourbon that makes you shake your head and wince after downing it; very sippable. Purists will disdain the flavor and sweetness, but it's a good bottle to ease into the bourbon arena.

Very drinkable - smooth, refreshing. This non-bourban drinker enjoys it!

"bourbon for girls" -- a little cloyingly sweet for my tastes. But maybe nice in a summer drink.

Very smooth. Very sweet. Best served up on the rocks, but also makes for a neat version of the Manhattan or the Old Fashion.

I have to admit when I heard that Beam had created a flavored bourbon, I wasn't sure if I would like it but the black cherry really complements the bourbon. It is sweet, so if you don't like sweet, then this one is not for you. For those who are not bourbon addicts and tend to stray towards the sweeter tasting cocktails, this is a great place to start your bourbon journey. I like it best over a couple ice cubes.
