Jim Beam Black, the 'triple-aged' statement refers not to three different types of cask (as that would not be allowed under bourbon regulations) but to the 6 year old age statement, which is three times the minimum maturation period for straight bourbon.
Very tasty and smooth. Really enjoyed this one. I first tried it from the sampler pack of 4 50ml tasters that Jim Beam put out. I will definitely be buying another bottle of this one.

As usual, black is better - reasonably smooth, worth an extra few bucks.
But still better the other 8 year Jim Beam Black double the original JB white label's 4.

I bought this purely because I liked the bottle, but it's also a lovely sipping Bourbon.

Silly to call it triple aged with this explanation. Everybody will think you used 3 different barrels (must be all new for Bourbon). This is false info to the consumer. Call it 6 years old or simply black again, but this is false and fake.
