ABOUT DEVIL’S CUT™
Devil’s Cut™ is a new, premium bourbon whiskey that is created using a proprietary process that extracts the liquid trapped inside the wood of the bourbon barrel. The name Devil’s Cut plays off the notion of “Angel’s Share” in bourbon-making. As Bourbon ages, a portion of 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—it’s that liquid, and the rich flavors from deep within the barrel wood it contains, that we unleash and put back into our Bourbon to create Devil’s Cut™.
Devil’s Cut should be enjoyed whenever you’re looking for a premium bourbon. Additionally, it’s great for those occasions when you’re looking to unleash your spirit with a great night filled with the makings of bold memories.
Devil’s Cut™ is made by recapturing the rich bourbon and flavors previously trapped in the barrel wood, and carefully adding them back into extra-aged, six-year Jim Beam® Bourbon to create the finely-balanced, smooth 90 proof Devil’s Cut™ Bourbon.
The aroma of Devil’s Cut™ showcases the deep notes of vanilla and wood pulled from the extracted liquid of the barrel.
By extracting the liquid trapped within the barrel wood, bold bourbon notes of wood, oak and vanilla are unleashed and give Devil’s Cut™ an intense but smooth flavor that separates itself from other bourbons.
Devil’s Cut™ should be enjoyed neat, on the rocks, as a shot or mixed with cola.
Jim Beam® Devil’s Cut™ Bourbon is available for a suggested retail price of $23.99 for a 750ML bottle beginning May 2011.
