Old Tub // Kentucky, USA
Before Prohibition, Jim Beam was known as Old Tub. The name change was probably for the best. Old Tub Kentucky Straight Bourbon is bottled without chill-filtration. It is also bottled in bond. Previously, Old Tub was only sold in 375ml bottles at Jim Beam's American Stillhouse shop in Clermont, Kentucky. However, as of June 2020 this has been released as a limited edition version nationwide in 750ml bottles.

"The aroma is full of sweet vanilla, caramel-covered popcorn, cinnamon, and a moderate amount of char smoke and oak. The bourbon is slick, but the proof helps to keep it moving on your palate. Still, it's a chewy mouthful of a bourbon. Spicy and bittersweet, this is not especially dynamic, but it's a solid bourbon for a weekday evening. "
