Tasting and Review by Daniel & Rex in the Whisk(e)y Vault
As bourbon ages, a portion of the liquid is lost from the barrel due to evaporationthat’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.
We call that the “devil’s cut.”
To create Jim Beam Devil’s Cut, an extraordinary new bourbon experience, we developed a proprietary process that actually pulls the rich whiskey trapped inside the barrels’ wood after they’re emptied. We hold this barrel-treated extract 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.
A distinctly bold bourbon with rich flavor unleashed from deep inside the barrel wood.
The TasteFull bodied with intense oak and vanilla notes.The FinishLong, smooth, with a hint of sweetness.
After aging, when the bourbon is dumped out of the barrel, some liquid stays trapped deep inside the wood. This is the “Devil’s Cut”
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
A robust, premium bourbon with deep colour, aroma and character, bottled at 90 proof (45% vol)
