Jim Beam Devil's Cut Bottling Note

This is the result of taking 90 proof Jim Beam Bourbon and extracting spirit absorbed into the wood of the barrels itself and blending them together. The result is a punchy oak-fest of a Bourbon, surely the drink of the devil himself?

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Immensely woody, fresh cut oak and a whole heap of vanilla and wood spice.

Palate: The American oak vanilla remains powerful with a rich woodiness joining it.

Finish: Yep still oaky, the finish is reasonably long with a pinch of spice scattered on top of that persistent vanilla flavour.

Overall: Well this is definitely a woody drink, and it is an interesting experiment in what can be achieved through wood extraction.

Jim Beam Devil's Cut Reviews

A Fantastic Bourbon

My new favorite. It is very smooth & taste great neat.

15th August 2020

My first Jim Beam - but not my last!

This is the first Jim Beam product I've tried, and was impressed how good it was. I drink it neat without ice or water and it was spot on. Definitely will try other JB products.

All about the wood - devilishly special Bourbon made in a unique way

Don't be snubbed by the price - this is a SPECIAL bourbon, few know about it or the unique process of making it.

When any whiskey or whisky is made there are three cuts:
- the angel's cut (the bit that evaporates during aging)
- the man's cut (the content of the barrels)
- the devil's cut (the bit absorbed by the wood of the barrels)

It may be young but it's matured in old barrels that are at the end of their life, these barrells full of flavour then get destroyed and the devil's cut is extracted from the moist wood, this very dark liquid is then blended with the bourbon from the barrels to make an amazing creation, the best value bourbon in my opinion.

Yes the core bourbon could benefit from more aging, hence I think a premium version of this made with 12 year old (minimum) bourbon would be the best bourbon bar none!
As it stands it's exceptional value well deserving of the five stars for that alone, a unique drink and a great story.

Top shelf American

Excellent drop. Good raw bourbon for the seasoned rebel.

26th January 2019

One of the best bourbons so far

Beam has done it again awesome demonic drink

16th November 2018

Love oaky you'll love this.

Extremely pleasant drink. I absolutely love it.👍👍

3rd November 2018

Oak DeLuxe

My first taste of it here, and robust is a good word. Oakey. Classic Jim Beam underneath. Hank would have liked this version...

5th September 2018

Ok well drink for price.

Ok well drink. Hint of cordivan leather with oak door jam rising on back side. Could benefit from more oily mouth feel and stronger pepper finish.

10th July 2018

Too Much Wood!

Too much wood flavor which ruined what is probably a good bourbon. Jim Beam Black much more enjoyable.

Sweet and smooth

Absolutely outstanding. I have tried lots of "special" bourbons and "small batch" spirits. This one is my favorite. Sweet and smooth is how I would describe it. Something I can drink every day. I like it with a bourbon ball from my freezer.

8th March 2018

Nothing special. Not terrible

It's a bourbon, but it's not anything much better than the White Label, which isn't exactly a premium bourbon to start. It's not bad, but entirely forgettable.

5th February 2018


Enjoyable if not slightly muted flavour. It goes down very smoothly.

28th November 2017


Really love the taste of the Devil's Cut. I'm a more Jack drinker. Maybe that's why.

1st November 2017

good stuff

Bad thing is it used to be 75cl for £16 and now in supermarket it's £23 for 70cl definitely won't be buying anymore

17th September 2017

Really smooth bourbon

Really enjoy this bourbon. Used to find it in the half gallon but now can only find in 750ml. Has it stopped being sold in the half gallon?

3rd September 2017

oaky, pepper, undertones of sweet vanilla, black tea. very very tasty

This expression from Jim beam is one of the recent experiments that works. They've taken a bourbon and aged it two years longer than the Jim beam white and cut it down with water used to extract more flavor from the barrel. The result is a heavier, more aged, higher proof version of Jim beam white. Very pleasing, it brings back some of the older style favors lost in today's quick to market bourbons.

17th July 2017

For the perfect Old Fashioned

An OK sipping bourbon but where it really comes alive is in an Old Fashioned. The heavy oak flavour works well with bitters and the extra strength offsets nicely with the additional sweetness in an old fashioned - this adds a lovely complexity to the classic cocktail without feeling like you are wasting a pricey bourbon on cocktails. For the price you can get it at (if you look around, it can be found for around half the price of a bottle of Woodford Reserve) its worth every penny.

17th March 2017

You're drinking what they used to throw away.

Nasty ass swish. Left overs squeezed out of the aging barrel to make a quick buck, avoid at all costs.

25th October 2016

nasty stuff

WORST bourbon i've tasted. it was the first time i've ever had a hangover from bourbon & coke
I will never move from JimBeam Black EVER!!!

3rd June 2016

The last 5 drams left in the bottle are devine!!

Way better than the regular Jim Beam. And I can sip Jim Beam neat. I can not sip neat any of the lower (under 30) spirits besids Jim Beam. Jameson, Ballantines, CC are all total garbage to my palate. This or Woodford Reserve are my go to bourbons. But the last 5 drams felt almost like out of this world. I enjoyed that stuff until the last drop. Sure, I ve got better stuff in my bar, but this is an absolute (at least) 2 pieces rebuy. With backup bottle. Also bottle I ve had, I liked the fact that it was destilled and BOTTLED in Kentucky.

11th April 2016

Good stuff.

Picked this up for £16 (Was cheaper than JB white & JD) and am impressed. It's got plenty of character, smooth, sweet etc, would recommend.

PS, I think the last reviewer had drank a touch too much of it.....comparison with Laphroaig & Hennessy..!?

9th March 2016

Not as good as Jack Single barrel, but...

Not as good as Jack Single barrel, but it is sits at the supermarket at almost half the price. Better then Jim Beam White (sweeter, woodier, peppier) and Jack Daniels Old n.7 (2013 batch). Jack vs Devils cut, you can taste the quality of regular Jack, but Jack fails like a cheap scottish blend in comprisment to Devilsc cut (I did several head to heads). And I do like Old n. 7, I can drink it straight with no problem, and its up there with Chivas 12 and JWB 12 in rotation with no problem.
So in conclussion. If you ve never had a Devils cut, and you are not a girly dude who can only drink undrinkable sweet tasteless juices like Jameson, Balantines etc, buying one probably wont destroy your finances, and your taste buds.
But if you aim at higher levels...Then there has to be said that this one is nowhere in the hights of Woodford Reserve, Jack SB, Hennessy Fine, Laphroaigh 10, Chivas 18....It performes solid against Dimple 15 (head to head), but Dimple 15 is still Dimple 15 :)

9th March 2016

Good and well priced

This seems to be a love it or hate it Bourbon. I personally love it. Reminds me a bit of JD. I would buy it again. If you prefer something sweeter try Bulliet.

9th January 2016

just for cooking

Not worth to be called Whisky. You may use in a cake when you are not having any Vanilla near by.

2nd January 2016

Great fun, excellent flavour with rye-style richness

Was very pleasantly surprised by Jim Beam Devil's Cut, even tho not particularly a bourbon or Beam fan ... It has a very delicious & full flavour, & puts just the right amount of fire into the palate. Tho it's a bit different, the rich flavour character in Beam Devil's Cut reminded me of rye whiskies. Has converted me into keeping a bourbon around, with this as main representative.

mr stuart ashcroft

Very nice drink very smooth must be drunk neat no ice etc very similar to wild turkey but not as harsh most enjoyable

6th September 2015

Yes, it's oaky. And...?

Perhaps it helped that I had low expectations to begin with (I've never been a JB fan, and their Mila Kunis ads give the impression of a gimmicky product...not that I mind looking at Mila), and the only reason I had any to try was because the local Total Wine had some in those little 50ml sampler bottles near the check-out, so I grabbed a couple on impulse.

But I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed sipping some Devil's Cut neat. The heavier-than-most oak didn't bother me a bit, nor did it mask the other flavors to any significant degree. It's not close to being in the same as my beloved Blanton's, to be sure...but at $19.99 (vs. the ~$50 I'm currently paying for Blanton's....when I can even find it) it's a nice, easily affordable every-evening accompaniment to desperately trying to find something worth sitting through on TV before bedtime.

27th August 2015

Wood...Wood and more wood

A regular single malt drinker, opened this bottle as a change after some steller reviews. Thoroughly disappointed with the devils cut. Tried it neat as well as with ice and all you can taste is burnt oak from start to finish. Could be used a mixer maybe, I wouldn't know. But wouldn't recommend it.Looks more like a marketing gimmick from the folks at JB.

21st August 2015

Bitter. Harsh. Weak.

This is bitter and falls apart with ice unlike white label that opens up and smooths itself out this just becomes like liquorice. If you know the process of refilled and distressing casks Beam use to create the 'slurry' they pad this stuff out with, you know what you are tasting: charcoal. Its nasty shit. A shame!

9th August 2015


Tastes a little more oaked than standard white label.
This is nothing special. Which is a shame as I feel the Jim Beam brand really needs a 'premium' offering taking the best of Beam's youth and spice and introducing a higher proof and more lasting finish and depth.

9th August 2015


I had high expectations for this JB unfortunately it didn't live up to them. Harsh and too scotch like for my tastes.

8th July 2015

Not great

I love all different kinds of bourbon and was looking forward to trying this. what a waste of money! they tried too hard and ruined a good thing.

24th May 2015

Devilishly addictive

Always been a Jack Daniels kind of guy.Not any more love the woody taste with that little sweetness of Devils cut.

1st May 2015


So disappointed with this.I have a friend that makes a better drop in his garden shed.

26th April 2015

Little Devil

Jim Beam Devil's Cut is a nice dram and one of the few American whiskeys I can appreciate. The nose is sweet, you have to really sniff it up. Then you'll find a leading role for the vanilla, which is pretty nice (made me think of 'the naked grouse) and the bourbon seals the deal. A distinctive Jim Beam nose. On to the palate, the taste is much more ferocious than the nose would suggest. Strong sensations of the ongoing vanilla (you would expect vanilla to be smooth and soft, but no...), oak and more bourbon. Yes, this is devilish. The finish gets easier along the way. The peak is obviously in the middle. Nice work, Jim! (RB)

Read Review so I decided to try it, it tastes horrible! Not at all smooth, what a waste of money.

27th January 2015

oaky, strong and would buy again

Strong oaky taste that lasts well into the finish, enjoyable and different from the other products in the beam range. shared it with friends and went down well, makes a decent old fashioned with the help of its higher strength (unless rye is you choice). At this price, enjoyable and distinct taste, well worth a try.

14th November 2014


This bourbon is terrible. Only good for mixing with coke or soda. I'd drink it but its definitely low quality and not worth the price here.

4th July 2014


Tastes good not to woody but strong, its the lonnng after taste that reminds me of charred wood from a bonfire, that smell is the after taste. good variation on the normal black by jim B

31st January 2014

Absolutely beautiful

basically a woody version of the jim black 6 year old style taste.
bought a sample and im back now to buy a bottle.

30th January 2014

Not bad...but

A decent bourbon but too much oak for my taste. The description above is spot on. This is a very oaky bourbon. I would recommend Jim Beam Black if you like the Jim Beam style minus the hearty helping of oak.
