Elegant. Smooth. Refined. That's what 8 years of aging will do to a bourbon. A premium bourbon with a more flavorful character. Meant to be sipped and savored. Our premium 86-proof, double-aged bourbon spends 8 years in new charred, white oak barrels. That's twice as long as original Jim Beam®. It's those four extra years of aging that give Jim Beam Black its full bodied flavor with smooth caramel and warm oak notes.
