Old Tub Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey

$24.99

Size
750ml, bottle

Old Tub Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is a limited-edition Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey from Jim Beam that pays homage to the Beam family's original pre-Prohibition brand. It's a bolder, unfiltered expression of bourbon with a focus on oaky character, vanilla, and hints of grain.

Description

Old Tub’s unfiltered nature sets the stage for a richer, more robust bourbon experience compared to its filtered counterparts. Poured into a glass, it boasts a warm amber color reminiscent of honey and citrine gemstones.

On the nose, the initial wave is dominated by bold oak notes, a testament to its time spent maturing in charred oak barrels. This oaky influence is then woven with hints of sweet vanilla, creating a classic bourbon aroma. Some tasters also detect subtle whispers of grain, a gentle reminder of the bourbon’s base ingredients.

The first sip delivers a full-bodied mouthfeel, carrying forward the oak influence from the aroma. However, Old Tub isn’t a one-note wonder. The robust oak is pleasantly balanced by warming notes of caramel. This sweetness adds a touch of complexity, preventing the oak from becoming overpowering. Hints of grain can reappear on the palate, offering a subtle grainy texture.

As you savor the finish, the experience remains clean and lingers with a touch of warmth. The oak influence carries through, but it’s softened by the lingering sweetness of the caramel. This creates a satisfying conclusion that invites another sip.

In essence, Old Tub offers a journey through the heart of bourbon. It’s a celebration of classic bourbon flavors, presented in a bold, unfiltered style that’s perfect for those who appreciate a more rustic bourbon experience.
