A couple of months ago I fell in love with a bourbon that was filled to the brim with malva pudding and dark sweet cherries. The Woodford Reserve Double Oaked promised and delivered a wonderful taste experience. At the same time, I also found the Jim Beam Double Oak in the shop and just had to try this too. The Jim Beam Double Oak is CONSIDERABLY more affordable than the Woodford Reserve Double Oak. Could I get the double oak taste experience at a more affordable price? And further, will this Jim Beam Double Oak rival my other Jim Beam favourite, the Jim Beam Black?

The 14th of June is National Bourbon Day. A whole day to celebrate the magic that is the golden liquid from the USA. For a whiskey to classify as bourbon it must be made in the U.SA. In addition, its mash bill (mix of grains from which bourbon is distilled) must comprise at least 51% and no more than 79% Indian corn. Besides corn, the other grains used, include malted barley and either rye or wheat. Bourbon must be aged at least two years in a new, charred oak barrel made from American White Oak.
