Jim Beam Takes the Devil's Due

Jack Bettridge
Posted: March 4, 2011

(continued from page 1)

APPEARANCE: Extremely dark amber, fat quick legs.

NOSE: Molasses, maple syrup, slight olive oil.

PALATE: Hits the tip of tongue with a slight burst of tannin and then spreads out across the palate like a fruity hard candy, In the roof of the mouth, it gets very spicy and rooty with a certain nutty and toasty quality and some more of that olive oil.

FINISH: The toast lingers into the after taste with wood and then a finishing bit of fruit.

This could make me a bourbon drinker again.

Jack, did they tell you how much regular Jim Beam they have to add to the Devil's cut to bottle it. I wonder if the proof would be stronger without the mixing? What would you compare this to (other bourbons)?

Just tried this at a cigar and bourbon pairing event. Excellent! A bit of a bite, but not harsh at all.
