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. This year’s release is both a prompt to fans of American whiskey, as well as a reflection on Freddie’s experience blending and innovating chapters of Little Book over the last five years. Little Book Chapter 5: “The Invitation” invites whiskey fans to explore new and interesting blends, ages and flavors in the ever-evolving world of whiskey, specifically from the Beam family. The Invitation offers a chance for any curious drinker to expand their palette - both seasoned connoisseurs and newcomers alike.

The year’s release is also Freddie’s personal reflection on the diverse influences that have shaped his style as a distiller, leading him to create a diverse, yet cohesive, story for Little Book over the years. In addition to the spirit of curiosity and exploration that inspires the Little Book Whiskey series, each annual release features a blend of uncut and unfiltered1 liquid streams carefully chosen by Freddie Noe himself and meticulously blended until it meets his vision. Each liquid brings something unique to the final whiskey.

TASTING NOTES
  • A 2-year-old Kentucky straight bourbon comes off the still and goes into the barrel at a lower proof. With an almost creamy mouthfeel, sweet grain flavor presents itself, creating a complexity for such a young age.
  • A 3-Year-Old malted 100% rye whiskey brings in peppery notes to the final blend common to rye, with complexity of toasted grain/cereal and a hint of nuttiness.
  • A 5-year-old Kentucky straight bourbon has hints of vanilla. A complexity of corn sweetness on the nose and a smooth finish help balance the flavors from the younger whiskies and the 15-year-old bourbon.
  • The 15-year-old Kentucky straight bourbon provides a heavier barrel flavor. This liquid specifically adds a lot of complexity in the final blend.

Proof: 116.8
