    Default Costco Single Barrel Bourbon?

    While at Costco today I noticed that they are selling a single barrel bourbon listed at 103 proof. Anybody ever try it? I should have bought a bottle to try but the line was too long at the checkout.

    Reportedly made by Jim Beam, but reviews are not so good.

    I have a bottle at home. Its ok...drinkable and not a bad price, but nothing that I would seek out again.

    In a tasting I attended a while back, the group found it tasted a lot like Knob Creek did a few years ago. It's sweeter and simpler than current Knob Creek, and of course has a bit of that Beam "grassiness" that everything they've made since the late '80s has exhibited to some degree. Try it in a blind tasting some time compared to bourbons you know you like and decide for yourself.

    I came to the same opinion. It's ok but I don't see the need to purchase another bottle.

    I love the stuff. To ME it tastes of Bookers with a little water.
