[ Home > Spirits > Bourbon / American Whiskey > Jim Beam Devils Cut Bourbon ]|
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.
We call that the "Devil's Cut."
To create Jim Beam Devil's Cut, they developed a proprietary process that actually pulls the rich whiskey trapped inside the barrels' wood after they're emptied. They 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.
The Essence: 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.
