Jim Beam Single Barrel Bourbon Whiskey is the first single barrel offering from Jim Beam. Bottling bourbon from a single barrel (rather than blending multiple barrels) leads to inconsistency in flavor. As such, each bottle of Jim Beam Single Barrel will vary slightly. The bottles are individually labelled and come from hand-selected barrels to ensure high quality. This whiskey is for the serious bourbon drinker. It is full-bodied, rich, and balanced with a kick. The finish is smooth compared to Jim Beam's other offerings. Single barrel whiskey fanatics will enjoy this neat, on the rocks, or with a splash of water, but it goes just as well in a Manhattan, an Old Fashioned, or any other whiskey cocktail.
