Beam's Eight Star

I had never seen this before it was offered to me as a free drink at hotel happy hour in early 2018. It may still have been a little over priced. It is a 40% ABV blend of neutral grain spirit and straight whiskey. The nose is quite light and woody with some hints of vanilla.   The taste – if you want to call it that – is thin and lacking in sweetness with a slightly spicy, woody finish. This one is more about what you don’t taste than what you do.  If it is an “eight star” whisky then I can only assume it is 8 / 100.
