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.
Not the original formula, used to be double aged, 8 years aged, now triple aged, 6 years aged. Still very nice, and can be drank neat, mixed and best consumed in large quantities, and shared in a group too.

I've tried a few bourbons here and there, but Jim beam black is not to be trifled with, it's a well-rounded full flavored bourbon

When you have black you don't go back.

I feel like having more - if you crave for bourbons like Elijah Craig 12, Buffalo Trace, Four Roses, Knob Creek, Rittenhouse Rye - you will love this one - if you crave for Maker's Mark or Jack Daniels, you won't like it too much!!

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.
