What happens when you take the best casks from four premium Bourbon brands — heaven, that’s what.

Freddie Noe is the grandson of Whiskey legend Booker Noe. Booker gave Freddie the nickname “Little Book” and Freddie has lent that name to an annual limited edition release from Jim Beam’s premium lineup. Each is intended to be a blend of premium Bourbons and Rye Whiskies from Beam-Suntory’s various warehouses along with contributions from partner distilleries around North America.

We last wrote about the “Little Book” special editions in early 2019. And as the name implies, Little Book Chapter 3: The Road Home is the third in this series of limited releases, and boy-howdy it’s a good one. I’ve got to admit, this is right up my alley and after tasting it I am going to take a few bottles home for myself. Jim Beam has four brands in their Small Batch Bourbon Collection. Chapter 3 samples from each to create one of the best Bourbon blends we’ve tasted. Get this — it’s a mix of 9 YO Knob Creek, nine yo Basil Hayden’s, an 11 YO Booker’s and a 12 YO Baker’s. All of that Bourbon royalty is bottled uncut and unfiltered at 61.3% ABV. It’s like a blended banquet table in Bourbon heaven.

Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland and some other parts of the world distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and USA they spell it Whiskey.

Tasting Notes

Appearance / Color
Dark Rose Amber

Nose / Aroma / Smell
The aroma is thick and rich with notes of warm caramel, dried apricots and cranberries, and pumpkin-spice espresso.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
This gorgeous dram has great body and mouth-feel caressing the palate with notes of stewed pears, english toffee, hot oak, and toasted spice cake.

The finish is like adult candy — not too sweet, warm, and comforting.
Ratings & Reviews
My favorite of the 3 Little Book releases so far, a blend of all of the small batch Beam distillery releases (Bookers, Bakers, Basil Haydens, Knob Creek). Not for the faint of heart but doesnt drink as hot as most of the Bookers batches do.
It’s really good, no need to say more
It’s definitely meant for sipping, but it’s probably the closest thing to perfect that I’ve ever had.
Outstanding! If you love Bookers, you"ll love this. Beautiful blend of some excellent bourbons. Ton of sweet caramel, vanilla and toasted oak. Great spicey rye finish. Ultra smooth for the ABV! Highly recommend
Beautiful Mahogany color. On the nose there is little to no spice present but is abundant with vanilla, caramel, stone ground fruits and a hint of cardamom. The palate explodes with a pleasant rye spice and oak followed by a subtle smoky brown sugar and almost toasted cherry wood zing. Traces of traditional cinnamon and baking spices to follow. Leading into the finish is a full mouthfeel with charred oak spice that tapers off with a sweet note of cream brûlée. This is absolutely an amazing whiskey with multiple layers of oak, spice and sweetness developing at various stages. Well done!
