A distinctly bold bourbon with rich flavor unleashed from deep inside the barrel wood. Full bodied with intense oak and vanilla notes. Long and smooth finish, with a hint of sweetness.
Background: As bourbon ages, a portion of the liquid is lost from the barrel due to evaporation—that's the "Angel's Share." After aging, when the bourbon is dumped out of the barrel, a certain amount of whiskey is left trapped within the wood of every barrel. This is called that the 'devil's cut'. To create Jim Beam®Devil's Cut, an extraordinary new bourbon experience, a proprietary process was developed that actually pulls the rich whiskey trapped inside the barrels' wood after they are emptied. This barrel-treated extract is held until it develops the proper balance of bourbon notes, then blend it with 6 year old bourbon and bottle at 90 proof. The result: a robust, premium bourbon with deep color, aroma and character.
