Little Book Chapter 5, “The Invitation,” is the fifth chapter in 8th Generation Beam Distiller Freddie Noe’s acclaimed Little Book Whiskey annual release series. The Invitation offers a chance for any curious whiskey drinker to expand their palette - both seasoned connoisseurs and newcomers alike.
Little Book Chapter 5 is a blend of four different liquid streams with a vast range of ages, flavors and distillation styles. The base of this blend is a 2 year old bourbon that has been blended with a 3 year old Malted Rye, 5 year old bourbon, and a 15 year old bourbon. The way these liquid streams complement each other makes this Whiskey extremely approachable, even for those who haven’t given cask strength whiskey a try.
The scents of rich molasses, pleasant oak and baking spices are followed by cinnamon sticks and gingersnap cookies. Flavors of caramel and toasted bread with brown sugar undertones lead to a lingering finish of warmth and smoked vanilla.
"Little Book Chapter 5 is my way of inviting Little Book drinkers into different aspects of the whiskey space, regardless if they’ve been along for the ride since Chapter 1 or are just tasting Little Book for the first time." Freddy Noe, creator of Little Book, Great-Great-Grandson of Jim Beam.
