An interesting whiskey. Not a single malt, it is made by Jim Beam. The name comes from whiskey mythology: the Angel's share is the whiskey that evaporates from the keg during ageing, the Devil's Cut is the whiskey that soaks into the wood of the barrel. When the barrel is emptied the wood is pressed to extract the whiskey. It has a noticeably more complex taste than the regular Jim Beam.

However, if it takes off, the Scottish whiskey trade is in trouble. The whiskey industry uses new American oak for their barrels and they can only be used once. They sell them to Scotland to age single malt, but if they start destroying the barrels to press out the last of the product, where does that leave Scotland?

And the Scots move to the rear. I am sure they will invent a way to continue our traditions.
