Jim Beam Double Oak Whiskey is a replacement for the discontinued Jim Beam Black. Double Oak has been aged for 4 years in new charred-oak barrels before getting a secondary aging in newly charred American oak barrels.
Launched in 2016, this is a bit more matured version of the Jim Beam White Label, containing its classic sweetness but with addition of spices.
I received this as a gift by Master of Malt while making a big whisky order for our local Finnish whisky community. Nicely done MoM!
Double Oak is surprisingly nice. Could I even say it’s a bang for buck bourbon? Definitely a step up from the ordinary Jim Beam. This one has character but also that typical bourbony sweet smoothness.

“Add the ingredients above to a shaker with cubed ice and shake hard for 4 seconds. Strain over crushed ice in a rocks glass and garnish with a sprig of mint and a lemon wedge.”
