Appearance: In the glass the Jim Beam Kentucky Dram is a pale clementine-amber.
Nose: The nose is sweet and smooth: toffee and cloves with just a hint of smoke and freshly turned earth.
Palate: Delicious. It opens up quite sweet, but doesn’t step over that fine line to become cloying. Apricots, licorice, and vanilla. After a moment the Scotch part of the blend shows itself… it’s subtle, but absolutely noticeable. An earthy back of the tongue finish that lingers pleasantly until the next sip.
