The Jim Beams Devil’s Cut has a very interesting story, which will leave you amazed and curious at the same time. Its unique bold flavours will also create some interesting cocktails for this Halloween season however; drinking it straight is also a suggestion from Jim Beam.
Jim Beam Devil’s Cut
When a distillery ages a whisky in a barrel, a part of it is lost to the evaporation, which is called the Angel’s share. Some of the whisky is also lost as it soaks into the wood. Jim Beam saw this as an opportunity to create something special.
In order to get this lost part of the whisky, Jim Beam takes the barrels of whisky, which have aged for at least 6 years and dump them for blending. With these barrels, they use a proprietary process involving water, mechanical agitation and heat to “sweat” the barrels, extracting the bourbon from the wood. They then add this extract with the previous dumped whiskey of at least 6 years and bottle it as Devil’s Cut.
Taste: Full bodied with an intense oak and vanilla note
Finish: Long, and soft with a touch of sweetness
