Jim Beam Signature Craft Triticale 11 Year Old Bourbon

Your Price: $29.95
This is one half of the final Jim Beam Signature Craft release, which included six different bourbons in three two-bourbon batches. Each of the six highlighted the incorporation of an unusual grain in the bourbon realm. Here, Jim Beam and master distiller Fred Noe deserve credit for turning to triticale, a hybrid grain of rye and wheat. While several experimental craft distillers have turned to triticale in recent years, Beam did so over a decade ago for this release which has been aged for 11 years. Note: This is sold in 375 ML pint size bottles only.

Jim Beam Signature Craft Triticale 11 Year Old Bourbon 375 ML Pint

This is one half of the final Jim Beam Signature Craft release, which included six different bourbons in three two-bourbon batches. Each of the six highlighted the incorporation of an unusual grain in the bourbon realm. Here, Jim Beam and master distiller Fred Noe deserve credit for turning to triticale, a hybrid grain of rye and wheat.

Triticale is a rye/wheat hybrid that is rarely used in distilling. We know of a few examples in craft distilling, but it is not used by the larger producers . This may be due to the fact that it needs to be milled in a specific way, or more likely because many people do not know what it is and larger producers may be reluctant to spring something strange on them. In this case, since it is a bourbon it is still at least 51% corn with this being a minor grain less than 49 % of the total mash bill. Beam does not state how much triticale constitutes the mashbill.

TASTING NOTES "The nose is enticingly sweet, with vanilla and cocoa. Immediate impressions on the palate are far drier, with oak and spicy notes, nutmeg and pepper. A warm finish brings the sweetness back with a rich chocolate at the forefront, followed by fainter notes of oak, cinnamon, pepper and toffee. The palate and finish complement each other well, rounding out two distinct portions of the tasting experience into a grander whole. Add ice and find more consistency from start to finish, with dominant notes of dry oak and cocoa working in unison. "

This is a fantastic bourbon. To be honest, it reminds me of Old Grand-Dad with more age even though it's made with a different flavoring grain and yeast. It has a nice spice, and the floral notes are delicious. I'm really, really impressed by this one.
