  • SJ's Pro tip
Jim Beam is no new name to any whiskey lover which is world famous for its line of whiskies. It has been around for over 200 years way back in the late 1700's. It apparently has a rich history passed along family generations and distilling one of the best bourbon's in the world. 
Jim Beam Devi's cut was released in 2011- a slightly sinister bourbon made from the liquid that becomes trapped within the wood of the barrel during ageing. The way they do that is by filling those barrels with water and rolling them, the trapped whiskey gets out that way. It is the opposite of the term Angel's share where whiskey is evaporated and taken by the angels.
