Jim Beam Devil's Cut Bottling Note
This is the result of taking 90 proof Jim Beam Bourbon and extracting spirit absorbed into the wood of the barrels itself and blending them together. The result is a punchy oak-fest of a Bourbon, surely the drink of the devil himself?
Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt
Nose: Immensely woody, fresh cut oak and a whole heap of vanilla and wood spice.
Palate: The American oak vanilla remains powerful with a rich woodiness joining it.
Finish: Yep still oaky, the finish is reasonably long with a pinch of spice scattered on top of that persistent vanilla flavour.
Overall: Well this is definitely a woody drink, and it is an interesting experiment in what can be achieved through wood extraction.
