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.

Bourbon must be made from a grain mixture that is at least 51% corn.
Jim Beam has recently allowed its signature Whiskey to be used in several food products, including Bar-B-Q sauces, steak sauces, and an increasing number of specialty foods.
Straight Bourbon must be matured for at least 2 years. If a bottle has no age statement, it’s at least 4 years old.
Bourbon only needs to be placed in a new oak container for a few seconds to be called Bourbon. Fresh from the still and unaged Bourbon is called a White Dog. Recently, many of the larger distillers have started packaging this harsh, clear grain spirit for sale.
Bourbons are very high in vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
At any given time, there are more barrels of Bourbon in Kentucky than there are people. The population of the Bluegrass State is about 4.4 million. Today there are more than 5 million barrels of Bourbon sitting in the rick-houses of that Old Kentucky Home. That’s nearly 300 bottles of Bourbon per person, or about 60 gallons each.
