As the label notes, Jim Beam’s new Black Label 8 Year Old is double aged, double the age of Jim Beam White Label, that is, spending eight years in barrel instead of four. Very rare Jim Beam Black Double Aged, the 1 Liter bottle is a collector’s dream. A premium bourbon with a more flavourful character. Meant to be sipped and savoured. The premium 86-proof, extra aged bourbon spends twice as long in white oak barrels than original Jim Beam. It’s those extra years of ageing that give Jim Beam Black its full bodied flavour with smooth caramel and warm oak notes. Note this product is different to the Australian tripled distilled aged for 6 years version.
Jim Beam was founded in 1795 and has been operated by one family for seven generations. The Jim Beam family has been making bourbon in Kentucky for more than 200 years. Bourbon history, much like the Jim Beam family bourbon dynasty, mirrors U.S. history. Rebellion. Progress. Heroes. Facts. Legends. It’s why bourbon is, and will always be, America’s native spirit.
