Taking a page from the scotch-making handbook, Jim Beam releases its signature bourbon in a new Double Oak edition. Aged for four years, the bourbon is double-barreled in charred American Oak barrels to enhanced its flavor profile. The taste is described to have a "distinctive spiced oakiness with intense caramel and toffee flavors" while its aroma has "rich notes of caramel and vanilla with hints of toasted wood." Double Oak hits shelves this September.
