Jim Beam Black- Extra Aged Bourbon

Today,I am reviewing Jim Beam Black- Extra Aged Bourbon. Reads the product label "Our premium 86 proof, double aged bourbon spends 8 years in new charred white oak barrels, that's twice as long as our original Jim Beam". Found it quite interesting so am giving it a shot...enjoy my tasting notes!
