Jim Beam Black Label
Premium bourbon with a more flavorful character made to be sipped and savored. Our premium 86-proof, extra-aged bourbon ages years longer in white oak barrels than original Jim Beam. It's those extra years of aging that give Jim Beam Black its smooth, full-bodied flavor.
Opening nosings detect sweet notes of light caramel, toffee and yellow fruit; aeration stimulates baked, dry aromas of tobacco leaf, oak resin and breakfast cereal. Palate entry is firm, semisweet and mildly grainy; by midpalate, there's a slight oiliness to the texture that I like while the taste becomes narrowly focused on the grain/wood interplay. Finishes elegantly, emitting more dry than sweet flavors of toasted grain and oak.
