Jacob’s Ghost White Whiskey Review

post icon

Jacob’s Ghost is new and old white whiskey from Jim Beam. Named after Jacob Beam, founder of Jim Beam, Jacob’s Ghost is a direct descendent of the white whiskey he distilled way back in 1795.  Unlike most white whiskeys, Jacobs Ghost is aged for 12 months in new white oak barrels.

In the words of Fred Noe, Jim Beam’s 7th Generation Master Distiller.

“Jacob’s Ghost represents both our past and our future. It’s a tribute to my family’s ancestry and our first distiller, while also showing our chops at innovation by perfecting what Jacob first created into a whiskey that’s unlike anything out there today.”

Jacob’s Ghost White Whiskey Review

Appearance: Clear, pale, faint gold with legs

Nose:  Clean, medium intensity, short aging with notes of oranges studded cloves, white pepper, rye, corn, cereal, rock candy and fennel.  Reminds of a dilute Jim Beam.

Palate: Dry, warming alcohol, medium minus body, medium flavor intensity of orange blossom water, celery, fennel, rye, corn and rock candy.  Medium minus, simple finish of salad (celery and fennel).

Rating:  Average.

It is a nice change from all the “moonshine” out there.

ABV 40% / 80 Proof

suggested retail $21.99
