The extra aging makes this bourbon very drinkable all by itself

Bourbon /43% ABV / Kentucky, United States
- Kentucky, United States
Jim Beam Black® is a premium bourbon with a more flavorful character made to be sipped and savored. Our premium 86-proof, extra-aged bourbon ages years longer in white oak barrels than original Jim Beam®. It’s those extra years of aging that give Jim Beam Black® its full-bodied flavor with smooth caramel and warm oak notes.

Every time I order the black label Jim Beam from Main Street, they never have it. Had to buy white label which my husband does not like. Not sure if I got a credit on difference. Drizly needs to fix it so that if a store is out of product, it let's you know ahead of time.

My favorite bourbon …
Because of the liquor’s aging process variation, bourbon’s colors range from light amber to dark caramel and each bottle must contain at least 40% ABV. Bourbon can only be called bourbon if it’s aged in an oak barrel; barrels must be new and are pre-charred to help the liquid extract as much flavor as possible from the wood.
While both whiskey and bourbon are made from the same base ingredients (a predominantly corn mash, yeast and water), a spirit can only be called bourbon if it’s crafted in the United States, surpasses a minimum 40% ABV and is aged in new, charred, white oak barrels. Bourbons are generally on the younger side of the whiskey family (compared to older whiskies like scotch) and thus deliver a sweeter profile.
Raise a glass to science: While rye, barley and wheat all contain the gluten protein, the actual gluten is removed during the bourbon’s distillation process, in which the gluten molecules are separated from the actual distillate used to make the final product.
