    Jim Beam Bonded?

    It has been quite a while since I have thought about or seen anyone mention this stuff, who here buys it regularly?
    My last bottle was about two years ago around the time it was reintroduced into the Australian market, and I enjoyed its higher proof, but cant remember much else about it.
    Recently I have stumbled across a few "dusties", the old label stuff from the early 2000's, havent pulled the trigger but really want to simply because its rare, would anyone here consider this older expression much different to the current release?

    Unfortunately, Bonded Beam is not available in the States.

    Sure we do but here it's called Knob Creek.

    I doubt bonded beam is 9 years old.

    It is when it wears a Knob Creek label.

    Isn't Old Tub, sold in the Jim Beam Visitors center, essentially the only bonded Jim Beam in America?

    If Knob Creek was bonded, it would say so on the label. I'm not sure why people feel the need to confuse others.

    I won't pretend to be a Knob Creek expert, but I did read an article recently that said some brands intentionally choose not to mention "bond" on their label even if it technically meets the requirements because they deem the labeling passť.

    Re: Jim Beam Bonded?

    I would agree that Old Tub BIB is essentially Bonded Beam. And as much as I want to like it, its no "Baby Knob". When you water it to 80 proof it tastes nearly identical to ... you get the idea.
