Best Apple Flavored Whiskeys from worst to best

Drink Review: Jim Beam Apple Whiskey

By Mike Thayer

Blended and flavored whiskeys are red hot right now, consumer demand for brown spirits continues to rise with American Whiskey in particular seeing some phenomenal sales growth.

Regular readers know that I am a fan of flavored whiskey, I've always got a bottle of something in my freezer for a chilled shot or flavored specialty in the liquor cabinet to enjoy on the rocks.  My favorite in all this tasting fun so far, has been Yukon Jack Jacapple.

I've sampled five different apple flavored whiskeys in my tasting adventures so with that in mind, I've decided to go on an apple flavored whiskey run, to find out just who makes the best apple flavored variety, there are plenty of them out there.....

20190522_191706-1Today's tasting:  Jim Beam Apple Whiskey

As usual, I served this up in a straight shot and on the rocks. You definitely get the apple sweetness in the nose, the aroma is quite noticeable as soon as the cap comes off the bottle.  In the swirl and swallow the apple is pleasantly green apple tart but sweet.  You also get the classic Jim Beam warm base bourbon in the finish.  This whiskey is done right, with the apple complimenting the whiskey, rather than overpowering it.  Best enjoyed as a chilled shot, this whiskey is quite good.  Priced at about $15 for a 70 proof 750ml bottle, Jim Beam Apple Whiskey is reasonable priced and is a repeat buy.  I'm giving it 4 out of 5 Bachelor on the Cheap stars.  It's good, but not as good as Yukon Jack Jacapple.

4 stars
