Beam sells different labels in Australia than in the USA. It is shipped in bulk then bottled and labelled in your land. I would expect it is standard Beam distillate. If it was something unique like the six grain made for the export market a few years back it would probably make some reference to that.

If white was aged 8 years would it be beam black?

what beam small batch is closer to beam white and old grand Dad? Im thinking Bakers is it. But the descriptions sounds like Wild Turkey Rare breed and it was too hot and nutty and not mouth coating.
Have you tried vintage beam. They are so smoky it will have wood smoke coming out you nose.
