- Smooth. Elegant. Refined. That's what extra aging will do. And that's what it takes to make the world's premier bourbon. Jim Beam Black has been formally recognized as the best bourbon in the world, taking home the Bourbon Trophy at IWSC 2016.
Our premium 86-proof bourbon is extra-aged in new charred, white oak barrels. It's the extra aging that gives Jim Beam Black its full-bodied flavor with smooth caramel and warm oak notes. A smooth bourbon with a more flavorful character, meant to be sipped and savored.
Serve Jim Beam Black on the rocks or neat to allow the more robust oak and vanilla flavors to shine through. (from Jim Beam)
