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!

A worthy replacement for the now discontinued Jim Beam Black.

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

    Good bargain bottle

    Great choice in its price range, doesn't compete with other double barrelled bourbons though.

    OK

    It's Ok, but not A+

    Not Wild Turkey 101 but close. Not the same flavor and spice, but some is there. Smooth and easy drinking. Good sipper.

    Better than ever

    Lovely little pick me up

    Go for the complex oak with some smoke on the finish

    True to its price. Wild Turkey 101 is my preferred bourbon. Jim Beam Double Oak is my second preferred now. Tried JD No.7 and Bulleit 95 too, but couldnt find peace with them. Pour a dram and leave it aside for a few minutes before you sip neat or perhaps add a drop of water. Brings out the character.
    For reference: I enjoy Paul John Bold, Amrut Indian Single Malt, Sir Edwards Blended, Jameson Caskmates/Stout and Black & White.

    Underwhelming

    Undewhelming. Essentially a slighly lighter version of Knob Creek standard bourbon. Doesn't feel like double oaked at all. If you are craving oak, then I would go for Woodford reserve double oak instead - just way better.

    Improved version on the original

    I think of Jim Beam White label as a mixer bourbon. This double cask is the drinking version. It's rich, sweet, spicy and complex. Try it warm neat, with ice, or a dash of water. probably the best tasting bourbon I've had for under £25.

    More complex with each sip

    Very moreish butterscotch vanilla toastiness. By the 3rd or 4th sip, the finish becomes somewhat saltier like buttered popcorn. I like it.

    Worth a £20 spend, good starter bourbon

    Never tried bourbon but saw this on at £20 so why not. Great nose to this, richer and sweeter than the Irish pot stills I drink. Has a smooth taste, nice and mellow on the tongue and heat in the throat. A splash of water takes the heat out of it.

    A nice way to spend £20. Bizarre discovery ; this goes really really well with crispy duck and hoisin sauce.

    Meh

    Not a Beam fan. There mass market products are so disappointing. However, when I saw the double oak I am always willing to give a try. I think in the end the outcome was to be expected. This is white label rebarreled for no more than a year, likely less maybe 6 months to a year. Anyway, no surprise in such a short time all it picks up is charcoal. Amazing a producer of Bookers/Knob Creek and Basil Hayden/Old Grand Dad releases this stuff. I get it, obviously it works...good thing we have choices. At $20'ish the obvious alternatives are Old Forester 100, Old Bardstown BIB or Weller Special Reserve if you would consider a wheated.
