Jim Beam Choice, a.k.a. Jim Beam Green Label, is straight bourbon whiskey just like Jim Beam's original offering. The major difference with Jim Beam Choice is that it is charcoal-filtered and aged for five years (the original is only aged for four years). The filtering and extra year give Jim Beam Choice a smoother, sweeter, and creamier taste than Jim Beam's original. As such, you can think of Jim Beam Choice as a step up from their flagship offering and one of the best bourbons out there to use in a whiskey cocktail.
