    Jim Beam Devil's Cut

    A new bourbon item has popped up on the Ohio list for February. Jim Beam Devil's Cut is listed as a 90 proof NAS bottling priced in the 24.00-26.00 range for 750ml.

    What is the scoop on this one?

    Re: Jim Beam Devil's Cut

    I thought it had something to do with bottling residual amounts of bourbon post dump after the barrel had settled. May have been some technique to force it from the wood more efficiently.

    Re: Jim Beam Devil's Cut

    I believe you are correct.

    My initial search before starting this thread came up empty, but Google later found the reference in the KC single barrel thread.

    One of the local whiskey reps was trying to describe it as being the opposite of the "angel's share". I replied "You lost me at Beam......."

    So... that would just be whats left in the barrel... just like every other whiskey.
    Hope is subversive, for it limits the grandiose pretensions of the present by calling into existence the possibility of something better.

    I would think the opposite of Angel's Share would be barrel proof.

    As long as you have good whiskey you're not "unemployed", you're "Funemployed!!!"

    Apparently the name is a marketers take on Angel's Share.

    We all know what shenanigans the marketing folks are capable of...

    Fred Noe was in Little Rock a couple of days ago, I went yesterday to the store he visited and my understanding was what you said, Robert. Phil said that Fred said they roll the barrels after dumping them and that brings out a little more from the wood. Then they pour all of that together for the devils share. Had I been there I'd have asked if they have a special machine for rolling, do it by hand, or what?
    There's no such thing as bad whiskey, there's only over priced whiskey.

    Yes, when attending the MM46 soiree Joshua and I got that same story from a rep there. Something about the way they dump barrels leaves a little bit in each and this is getting that last little bit and maybe a little rinse as well, I can't recall all the details.
