As usual with Jim Beam, we had the choice of 3 barrels, Red, Green, and Blue. This one was tough because the rickhouse was almost 20 degrees colder than it was outside. We ended up thieving the barrels and taking our glasses outside where it was closer to 50 degrees. It's the only way we could try to taste or nose anything. The whiskey itself was chilled which always makes it tough to find imperfections. We tried it at barrel strength and watered down to a estimated 115 bottling proof. Needless to say, the group unanimously chose Blue as our barrel to take home. It had more balance and level of sweetness that the other two completely lacked. As hard as it was to nose anything, our runner up, Red, had almost a scent of hay or a horse barn. We had to revisit that one twice just to make sure we weren't smelling something off. But we're happy with what we came away with.
