Jim Beam Devil's Cut Bourbon
70cl / 45%
Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey
A devilish twist on Jim Beam's regular bourbon, blending their 6 year old whiskey with spirit extracted from the wood of the cask itself, where it's soaked in over the years of maturation. This gives us a robust and hefty bourbon with a nice added chunk of woody richness.
The so-called “angel’s share” is the whiskey that evaporates from barrels aging in the rickhouse. So it makes sense that the “devil’s cut” is that which remains trapped in the wood.
Through an extraction process, this whiskey is harvested, combined with 6-year-old bourbon, and bottled at 90 proof for a robust new take on Jim Beam. Jim Beam Devil's Cut is an extraordinary new bourbon experience. The expert distillers at Jim Beam have developed a process that pulls the rich whiskey trapped inside the barrels' wood after they have been emptied. They then hold this barrel-treated extract until it develops the proper balance, then blend it with 6 year old Bourbon and bottle at 90 proof (45% alc/vol). The resulting Bourbon is a robust, premium whiskey with rich deep colour, aroma and character.
The Essence: A distinctly bold bourbon with rich flavor unleashed from deep inside the barrel wood.
The Taste: Full bodied with intense oak and vanilla notes.
The Finish: Long, smooth, with a hint of sweetness

When Jacob Beam made the bold move of cooking up his first batch of bourbon back in 1795, debts were settled with duels. The American Dream was still taking shape. And you added more horsepower by, well, adding another horse.
A lot has changed over the past 215 years. But here at Jim Beam, we're proud to say that things have remained more or less the same. We've spent all that time painstakingly and passionately perfecting Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey. We're proud that the world's finest bourbon is still made by the same family, pretty much the same way. That's how it's been for seven generations.
Which is not to say we're stuck in the past. We've added to Jacob's first creation, now known as Jim Beam® Bourbon, by crafting a whole family of bourbons. Some are aged longer to add a little more character and complexity. One of our whiskeys is filtered through charcoal for a more rounded and mature taste. Another offers a spicy rye flavor. And a few are made in small batches, the way bourbon used to be made. They can be light and delicate. Creamy and elegant. Smooth. Balanced. Chewy. Crisp. In fact, we're convinced there's a bourbon for everyone.
