I spotted a Jim Beam Black bottle at a supermarket yesterday. The label read as "Triple Aged. Aged for 6 years". This was one of the newly shaped bottles. However, since I regularly drink JBB and know that it's aged for 8 years, I hurried to the JBB website for a verification. The site has the same information as me, i.e. JBB is aged for 8 years. Then, what was that bottle I spotted yesterday? The bottle shape, style, etc. everything was ok except the age statement. Does anybody know anything about this?

There have been several export variations for the JBB, including a NAS in the last few years. Unless your eyes fooled you, this could possibly be another such export version, possibly only for that region or even Turkey alone (assuming you are there, if you saw this in the US, I am really confused!)

There is an active thread last posted on just 3 days ago that has pretty much covered this: http://www.straightbourbon.com/forums/showthread.php?t=15219.

Jim Beam pretty much screws their over seas costumers that's why they are #1 in the world. JBW is only 70 proof in Australia for example, they sell some bourbon mixed with port crap there too in place of KC.

Triple aged at six years, wow, that's a good one. Sell the sizzle not the steak.
