The American whiskey industry is taking a leaf out of the Scot's marketing manual, offering increasingly rare and extravagantly packaged bottlings at the high end of the market. This new addition to the Beam family even employs x-Sherry butts, a practice synonymous with Single Malt Scotch Whisky.

The "Distiller's Masterpiece" is being promoted as the most exclusive offering within the Beam family, initially released in limited quantities at the Jim Beam American Stillhouse in Clermont, Kentucky in time for the famous horse races of May. It is an extra-aged Kentucky Straight Bourbon bottled at 100 proof, barrel finished in Pedro Ximénez (PX) sherry casks located in an optimal rack-house position.
Beam have not disclosed the age of the whiskey.

Other reviews... ...“Extra-aged” bourbon finished in Pedro Ximénez sherry casks. The third Distiller’s Masterpiece release, the previous two being over a decade ago. The PX sherry is certainly evident, with its lush, dark fruit (raisin, prune, ripe plum), marmalade, and layered dark sugars (toffee, molasses, maple syrup). A peppering of spices (cinnamon, allspice, vanilla) and dry, resinous oak round out the palate. Certainly a mood whiskey. Perhaps with a cigar after dinner? 88 points www.maltadvocate.com (Vol. 22, #3) Reviewed by: John Hansell
