When thinking about Jim Beam Black the words elegant, smooth and refined spring to mind; and that’s all thanks to the extra aging that goes into this premium bourbon. It possesses even more flavour and character, and is made to be sipped and savoured.
This 80-proof, extra-aged spirit ages years longer in white oak barrels than original Jim Beam. It’s those extra years of aging that give the Black its full-bodied flavour with smooth, satisfying caramel and warm oak notes. It’s no wonder it won the IWSC Award 2016 and is considered to be the world’s best and highest rated bourbon.
