In my non stop search for affordable and delicious bends I have tasted some rather “interesting” drams. I have tried some excellent blends. And I have tried a few where I look at the bottle and wonder if the person who bottled this, tasted it before it was bottled. This year have been slower than usual in my search for affordable blends. I have found some stunning blends in the mid range level. Blends like the Rock Oyster and the Timorous Beastie that retail for around R 750 – R1000 range. But very few in the affordable range around R500.

A couple of months ago I fell in love with a bourbon that was filled to the brim with malva pudding and dark sweet cherries. The Woodford Reserve Double Oaked promised and delivered a wonderful taste experience. At the same time, I also found the Jim Beam Double Oak in the shop and just had to try this too. The Jim Beam Double Oak is CONSIDERABLY more affordable than the Woodford Reserve Double Oak. Could I get the double oak taste experience at a more affordable price? And further, will this Jim Beam Double Oak rival my other Jim Beam favourite, the Jim Beam Black?
