Two pronged approach to the overall experience. Agnostic of price, the Jim Beam Distiller’s Masterpiece is a tasty sherry finished bourbon. The deep sherry notes with good rye spices, tea, oak, etc is complex and well executed. But I can’t get behind a $199 MSRP (I bought it for $180) bottle when I know there are other finished bourbons out there that cost less and taste just as good or if not better (High West and Belle Meade come to mind right off the bat). I’m glad to have a bottle but won’t buy another one.
