As bourbon ages a portion of the 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. That's called the Devil's Cut. To create Jim Beam Devil's Cut, an extraordinary new bourbon experience, Jim Beam developed a proprietary process that actually pulls the rich whiskey trapped inside the barrel's wood after they're emptied. This barrel treated extract is held until it develops the proper balance of bourbon notes, then blended with a 6 year old bourbon and bottled at 90 proof. The result: a robust premium bourbon with deep colour, aroma and character. 45% Alc./Vol.
