Jim Beam Red Stag Arrives for Review

red-stag-by-jim-beam.jpgWhen we first heard Jim Beam was coming out with a cherry-flavored bourbon, we have to say we were a bit...skeptical. Once we read Rick's review of the stuff on Martini Groove our mood shifted to cautiously optimistic. When we received the bottle, popped the top, and took a swig, things shifted even more in the positive direction.

Full disclosure, we're Jim Beam guys for a decade and a half now. We will always take Beam over Jack when given the choice, and we were concerned about some syrupy glop closer to Nyquil than our old standby. You'll have to wait for the full tasting notes, but we have to say...our fears were not justified. Red Stag will get a wide release in June, so you have that to look forward to, and our review will be done well before then.

If you absolutely can't wait, keep refreshing the page on JimBeam.com until they announce it's been released. [Update: They've actually got their own site over at TheRedStag.com...that's where you want to fiendishly refresh]
