Jim Beam Devil's Cut Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey, 70 cl - Amazon - £16 - Prime Exclusive

33
Found 7th Dec
Now that JD is up to a frankly eye watering £15, this seems far the better option at £16


  • After aging, when the bourbon is dumped out of the barrel, some liquid stays trapped deep inside the wood. This is the "Devil's Cut"
  • A devilish twist on Jim Beam's regular bourbon, blending their 6 year old whiskey with spirit extracted from the wood of the cask itself, where it's soaked in over the years of maturation
  • A robust, premium bourbon with deep colour, aroma and character, bottled at 90 proof (45% vol)

Same price at Asda for those Prime-less amongst us.

Jack Daniel's is not a bourbon - it's a Tennessee Whiskey. Jack Daniel's is dripped slowly - drop-by-drop - through ten feet of firmly packed charcoal (made from hard sugar maple) before going into new charred oak barrels for maturing.

bourbon, which has to be made from a mash that's at least 51 percent corn and aged in new charred oak barrels. The biggest difference is that Tennessee whiskey must be filtered through charcoal.

It's nicer than some other well known Kentucky whiskeys but less nice than some well known trifles.

Hope that helps.

Random answer to the question 'Is this nice'.

I really like this bourbon, and at 45%, it goes down really smooth. Recommended.

whats eye watering about £15??

Not sure why this is being compared to JD as they are different drinks.

Most Tennessee whiskey (JD included) meets the (less stringent requirements) of Bourbon.

Not all Tennessee whiskey is charcoal filtered; Prichard's whiskey gets an exception because it was never made in this way. Bourbon can be charcoal filtered.

Clear as whiskey eh?

For Whisky fans, Bourbon is good because it ensures a ready supply of oak barrels; Bourbon and Tennessee whiskey has to aged in new oak barrels, and many of these then go to Scotland for making Scotch.

It’s very nice. If you’re a fan of Jim Beam you’ll take to it. Personally the Double Oak is better (but about £14 dearer) but this is a fantastic bourbon to drink neat. Went through a bottle annoyingly quickly (was about £22 then - and a good deal) Very smooth and a quality taste

Nice stuff, I bought a bottle of this on Prime Day for a similar price and I really liked it.

Double Oak is only £2 more at the moment.

A bit different to the standard Jim Beam.

Despite the name and the higher proof(45%), this is a very friendly and non-aggressive bourbon. It's a hint sweet and goes down smooth without as much of the typical bourbon 'spiciness'. Actually a really good entry into bourbon if you're unaccustomed to or wary of it.

Not something that bourbon enthusiasts will necessarily find too exciting, though.

Balcones Baby Blue or Brimstone. Try them if you can stretch to the price. If you like Bourbon you'll love Texan Roasted Blue Corn Whisky.

May give it a try then thanks

Sweet girl's drink...man up Tinkerbells and try real whisky 🥃

I have a range of Jim's in my cupboard, they are good bourbons, full stop !

Tried this one last time it was on offer and didn't think much of it. Red Stag is cheaper and much better in my opinion.

It isn't. I was joking because JD had just gone up from £14 to £15

Double Oak is £18 at the moment from Amazon.

I am a JD fan, but this one is very nice. Heat for the price!

45% volume gets my vote... just bought it from asda same price

I wasn't aware that Jura made a bourbon. Got a link?

Thankfully I grabbed a couple of bottles of Jura's finest single malts over Black Friday.

Not bourbon, but it sure is better tasting and a better quality. No hangover when you wake up the next day

McDonald's strawberry milkshakes are dope.

Not a bad drop for the price.

This beats Jack easily!

My favourite ‘budget’ bourbon and one of the ones I find most enjoyable overall with a mixer.

Just use Pepsi Max not Coke if mixing, own personal tastes of course

£1 off. Hardly a bargain
