Jim Beam Gets Sophisticado
While your college self was extremely…shall we say…well-acquainted with one Mr. Jim Beam, as your palette has matured, you and Jim have grown apart a bit over the years. But perhaps you might like to spend some time with his high-stepping, top-hat-donning older cousin, (rī)1 Whiskey ($49.00) (pronounced “rye one”). Different from traditional rye, (rī)1 this premium Kentucky Straight rye whiskey is lighter and sweeter, with a softer, more refreshing profile, a sweet, citrus aroma, notes of dried fruit and cinnamon, and a kick-you-in-the-pants spicy snap. Why not throw on a top hat yourself and stir (rī)1 up in a delightful cocktail like a Whiskey Sour, New York Cocktail or a Vieux Carre? And speaking of top hats, give Mr. Peanut a ring—he’ll never let you drink alone.
