Jim Beam invites you to expand your palate. You game?
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.
While some of these special releases take you on a trip down the history of Jim Beam, Little Book Chapter 5: The Invitation literally invites you to “expand your palate”. Don’t mind if we do! This is a blend of young and old Bourbons plus some unusual Rye — all of them very close to Freddie’s heart as he was the one who developed them. First, there’s the very young 2YO Kentucky Straight Bourbon of an unusually low proof; although super flavorful, drams like these don’t get produced in huge quantities. Then, there’s a 3YO 100% malted Rye Whiskey. Add a 5YO and a 15YO Kentucky Straight Bourbon and you’ve got yourself one of the most intriguing blends out there, bottled at 116.8 proof.

The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in Little Book Chapter 5: The Invitation and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.
We invented Flavor Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.
