Jim Beam Kentucky Fire

If you like cinnamon flavored whiskey but feel weird swallowing mouthwash, Jim Beam’s Kentucky Fire is your go-to beverage. It’s a smooth ride that’s built from the bourbon up, so it’s as much fun to sip as it is to enjoy as a shot.

Jim Beam Signature Craft Bourbon

Johnnie Walker x Bruce Lee

Johnnie Walker x Bruce Lee

If it wasn’t strange enough to see Bruce Lee reincarnated via CGI, it’s even more odd that his uncanny doppelgänger is appearing in a promo for Johnnie Walker Blue – since clean-living Bruce never drank. Still, it’s worth watching.
