The Essence: A distinctly bold bourbon with rich flavour, unleashed from deep inside the barrel wood. The tatse: Full bodied with intense oak and vanilla notes. The finish: Long, smooth, with a hint of sweetness. 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. Jim Beam call that the devil's cut. To create Jim Beam Devil's Cut, an extraordinary new bourbon experience, 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 colour, aroma and character.
