Jim Beam Double Oak Bottling Note

There's an old axiom that claims "Two heads are better than one". Can that theory be transferred to whiskey barrels? Jim Beam's Double Oak might answer that question. You see, they initially mature this bourbon in freshly charred American oak barrels, and then move the whiskey over to a fresh set of freshly charred American oak barrels for the second part of its maturation!

Try in a Peach Smash:

  • 50ml Jim Beam Double Oak

  • 20ml fresh lemon juice

  • 20ml peach puree or 1/2 a muddled fresh peach

  • 15ml sugar syrup

    Add the ingredients above to a shaker with cubed ice and shake hard for 4 seconds. Strain over crushed ice in a rocks glass and garnish with a sprig of mint and a lemon wedge.

  • Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

    Nose: Full-bodied vanilla, old oak, milk chocolate and a kick of cardamom.

    Palate: Subtly peppery/oak-y at first. Soon enough, waves and waves of vanilla ice cream bring balance to the palate. A few touches of fruity malt.

    Finish: Charred oak toastiness lingers long on the finish.

    Jim Beam Double Oak Reviews

    A great tasting treat of a bourbon.

    I like what I like and try not to be swayed by the mass opinion about what I ‘should’ like just based on price or reputation. I like this.. a lot! I initially found the vanilla taste too strong and sickly but now I get caramel and maple syrup with a lingering afterburner of perfect intensity. This is my weekend special treat bottle. I usually drink JB white which is nice in a bland way. That only goes to let this one shine so much more when I drink it straight. You may not like this but neither of us would be wrong. For the price it’s absolutely worth a go!

    Meeeh

    It's ok for mixing, but cheap taste.

    Very good expression, solid bourbon.

    Amazing step up from the White Label. Sweet and peppery, oak bites just a bit but I haven't added any water. Good green, woody aftertaste. Defo gonna get a bottle of it (tasted it in a local pub last night).

    Solid daily drinker

    Solid bourbon that isn't overly sweet. The nose is very nice, and there's a good bit of spicy pepper to go with the oaky, vanilla sweetness on the palate. The finish is decent and rather dry. There's more complexity in this than the White Label or Devil's Cut, but is by no means a premium bourbon, and it can't take any water without going completely flat. For the price point, it's a good buy and a solid daily drinker.

    Simply unpleasant and aweful

    This is an absolutely terrible bourbon. It has a very unpleasant taste. I don't understand how it has received such favorable reviews.

    For the same amount of money, you are much better off purchasing Eagle Rare, Buffalo Trace, McKenna 10 year, or any of the Four Roses bottles.

    Well worth a try

    Tried this for the first time today. Usually I stick to single malts but have been known to try a bourbon or two. This one, I think, is very good indeed. There's plenty of vanilla and lots of spiciness which lasts a long time. Better than the white label and JD in my opinion, but I'm no bourbon expert.

    Very good bourbon. Will highly recommend to friends

    Spot on for the price. After reading your tasting notes I tried another taste and found the vanilla you described.

    Very good value at this price

    It may not be the worlds best bourbon, but at this price it might well be the best value.

    Excellent whiskey!!

    Crisp charcoal lyrics with a very smooth finish :)

    Disappointing

    A little bit disappointed with this one. I wasn't overly impressed with the Woodford Reserve Double Oaked and thought the double ageing might work better with a bourbon like Jim Beam, but the flavour is nothing but oak, with nothing else especially pleasant about it. It's perfectly drinkable, but nothing special. Jim Beam white label, while nothing special, is in my opinion far better value than this one is.

    Impressive bourbon

    Was a bit sceptical with this being Jim Beam but was quite impressed. It's smooth with good character. A bit like Bulleit but slightly more complex, a good addition at an affordable price point.

    Great value for a very solid pour

    This has exactly the flavour you would expect it to have as a premium Beam product but sits very nicely in the current range. It's spicy with a lengthy enough finish that it's clearly the middle child between Beam and Knob Creek. As long as the price point sits there too, it's worth having a bottle to hand.

    Outstanding

    Outside of regular white Jim Beam, the brand has a reputation for some of its spinoffs being a bit gimmicky (Honey, Red Stag, Maple, Apple etc.). I'm pleased to announce that this double oak stuff is nothing of the sort, and has a richness and maturity to it that takes regular Jim Beam to the next level. Unsurprisingly you're met with a big, bold hit of oak, but it's not overpowering, and it benefits from a smoothness not as pronounced in regular Jim Beam. It's still got those lovely corn and sweet rye notes of traditional JB, but with a more rounded, grown-up finish compared to its little brother. Well worth a try.
