The Bottled-in-Bond Act of 1897 dictated that Bonded Bourbon be bottled at 100 proof, aged at least 4 years in a federally bonded warehouse, and produced in a single distillery within a single distillation season. Jim Beam® Bonded adheres to these guidelines and is created from the highest quality ingredients to give you a taste of history. Bonded bourbon is preferred by bartenders as a superior mixing whiskey with fuller body and flavor that stands up in a mixed cocktail.
Smoother than expected for a 100-proof product, this four-year-old Bourbon has a bold vanilla-caramel aroma. Slightly drying on the palate, it offers bright butterscotch and apricot melting into caramel. Brisk and well structured, this Bourbon holds up well to dilution and would work well in mixed drinks.
