A couple months ago the RCWS tried Russell’s Reserve 6 year old Rye. It did not get a very high rating…mostly because the rye was very strong. Richard, RCWS Member #8, decided to give the rye another shot and turned to one of his favorite distillers, Jim Beam.
He paid $15.99 for a bottle of Jim Beam Rye and discovered it was money well spent. The taste started as a basic, good whiskey then finished with a solid rye. If you enjoy uncomplicated whiskey with a little “extra” give this one a try.
