This limited edition offering was personally selected by Fred Noe, Jim Beam's seventh generation master distiller. The bourbon is aged for 5-6 years in new, charred American oak, but the whiskey is non chill-filtered. This step is typically done prior to bottling and skipping it will result in a fuller taste profile. The bourbon is bottled at 100 proof. Available beginning November 2017 nationwide.

Tasting Notes

"Jim Beam's new Distiller's Cut is a gem of an affordable bourbon. At 100-proof and bottled without chill filtering, it's full-bodied and flavorful. The taste profile is classic bourbon: vanilla, leather, a touch of smoke from charred oak, and an enjoyable bit of black pepper spice that lingers on the finish. It's a straight-ahead whiskey that can serve just as well sipped neat as it does in cocktails, and it's a fantastic value for the price."
