Jim Beam Devil's Cut
|Region||United States, Kentucky|
We take the liquid we extract from our barrels, blend it with extra-aged Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey and bottle it at 90 proof to create a premium bourbon with extra depth and complexity. Designed to be enjoyed neat or on the rocks, Jim Beam Devil's Cut has a robust flavor with deep color, aroma and character. Deep char aroma with a smoky backdrop. Flavor is full bodied with intense oak and vanilla notes.
The backstory behind this bottling is that Master Distiller Fred Noe uses a "barrel sweating" technique to coax out Bourbon that has soaked into barrels during aging; that extract then is combined with newer whiskey. The end result is a lean and austere Bourbon, with brisk espresso, black tea and fig flavors highlighted by black pepper and clove. Seems made for mixing.
