Barrels of bourbon are like snowflakes - no two are ever the same. Placement in the rack house, intensity of the seasons, length of aging—all of these factors affect a barrel’s unique flavors. And every once in a while, these factors come together to produce the perfect bourbon whiskey in one, single barrel—a blessing of circumstance that occurs in fewer than 1% of all barrels. It is these and only these that are hand selected by Beam's expert distillers to become Jim Beam Single Barrel. Then, every bottle is individually labeled and hand numbered as a true testament to the unique flavor and profile of each batch.
Nose: The aroma is surprisingly shy; you really have to coax it up, which is unusual for a 54% bourbon.
Palate: Welcoming notes of pecan coffee cake, dried dates, all served on a bed of smoothness but deeply infused with ethanol and the caramelized wood sugars of the barrel it aged in.
Finish: Medium length but pleasant with the cinnamon-like echo of the oak tannins from the aging barrel.
