As bourbon ages, a portion of the liquid is lost from the barrel due to evaporation—that's the "Angel's Share." After aging, when the bourbon is dumped out of the barrel, a certain amount of whiskey is left trapped within the wood of every barrel.
They call that the "devil's cut."
To create Jim Beam® Devil's Cut™, an extraordinary new bourbon experience, they developed a proprietary process that actually pulls the rich whiskey trapped inside the barrels' wood after they're emptied. They hold this barrel-treated extract until it develops the proper balance of bourbon notes, then blend it with 6 year old bourbon and bottle at 436%ABV. The result: a robust, premium bourbon with deep color, aroma and character.
The Essence -
A distinctly bold bourbon with rich flavor unleashed from deep inside the barrel wood.
