Proof66 Notes

Jim Beam Double Oak bourbon is precisely what it's label claims: a bourbon first aged in new charred American oak (required for bourbon) and then given a second aging in oak... in another new charred American oak barrel The new char is often considered to carry the heaviest oak influences and following this thought, the early years in a "virgin charred" barrel would further intensify the flavor.

Community Notes

Introduced in travel markets in May of 2016. Available in US market beginning September of 2016. Jim Beam Double Oak is first aged in charred American White Oak barrels. Then we pour it into another freshly charred barrel to mature for a second time. The added interaction with the oak wood results in a liquid intense in flavor, smooth in taste.

I read through all your whisky reviews... good work, very informative. Except for this one. What happened? Nothing more to add? ;)

And why does this spirit has a 9.9 rabble rating?

Phizbin (2016-10-17):
I was very drunk and got excited about the new site upgrade. It turns out I'm a lot more boring than I think I am when drunk, apparently.

This is good. Best Beam labeled product I've tried to date. Light caramel in color with a great nose of barrel oak with honey, vanilla, varnish and a hint of leather. A splash or cube of ice brings dried fruit and pipe tobacco to the mix. Neat you get big oak backed by caramel corn, vanilla and brown sugar. All the traditional bourbon notes take a backseat to the barrel. A tad thin, but not overly so. It finishes with a drying oak astringency. A slightly sweet vanilla mint lingers on the palate (think an MGP 95 rye). Add a cube of ice and the sweet notes assert themselves a little more strongly on both the palate and the finish. While not a traditional bourbon profile, it was very enjoyable. It's the same price as the "Extra Aged" but is a better pour IMHO.

Thanks! If you do, I hope you enjoy it. To me this second barreling must get rid of a lot of the traits that I find off putting in the Standard Beam White Label. I also hope I'm not over rating it based on my low expectations going in, but I don't think I am as I've already polished off my second bottle.

Cranecreek (2016-10-06):
Very good review on this Beam. Have you ever tried Jim Beam SB ? your notes could apply to that one also.

BDanner (2016-10-06):
Jim Beam SiS is next up on my list of things to try. Lucked into a bottle of Weller 12 and a bottle of Blanton's, so it got pushed to the back burner again. My bourbon budget is shot until November.
