Jim Beam Double Oak Bottling Note
There's an old axiom that claims "Two heads are better than one". Can that theory be transferred to whiskey barrels? Jim Beam's Double Oak might answer that question. You see, they initially mature this bourbon in freshly charred American oak barrels, and then move the whiskey over to a fresh set of freshly charred American oak barrels for the second part of its maturation!
A worthy replacement for the now discontinued Jim Beam Black.
Try in a Peach Smash:
50ml Jim Beam Double Oak
20ml fresh lemon juice
20ml peach puree or 1/2 a muddled fresh peach
15ml sugar syrup
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.
