" Our master distillers carefully select each barrel by hand—less than one percent are chosen for Jim Beam Single Barrel—ensuring the highest quality and craft. No two barrels are the same, and each is individually bottled, labeled and hand-numbered so that its heritage is unquestionable.
Every glass is full-bodied and smooth with attributes of oak, vanilla and caramel. Sip it neat or savor it on the rocks. After all, it’s some of the very best bourbon our family has ever produced." ~ Distillery notes

FRED BOOKER NOE II 1929–2004. Jim Beam's daughter Margaret married into the Noe family, and a new name was brought into the Beam family tree.
