Jim Beam Double Oak Bourbon is uniquely aged twice in two separate charred oak barrels. It’s first aged in charred American white oak barrels, and then we pour it into different freshly charred barrels to mature for a second time. The added interaction with the oak wood results in a bourbon that’s intense in flavor, smooth in taste.
On the nose full-bodied vanilla, old oak, milk chocolate, and a kick of cardamom. On the palate a subtly peppery/oak-y at first. Soon enough, waves and waves of vanilla ice cream bring balance to the palate. A few touches of fruity malt. Finish: Charred oak toastiness lingers long on the finish.
