Beam Suntory’s brand Jim Beam distiller Freddie Noe has released the third whiskey expression under his Little Book whiskey series.

The expression, ‘Little Book Chapter 3: The Road Home’, is a blend of four small-batch bourbons.

The batch of four bourbons includes 9-year-old Knob Creek Bourbon (9-Year-old (Yo)), Basil Hayden’s Bourbon (9 Yo), Booker’s Bourbon (11 Yo) and Baker’s Bourbon (12 Yo).

With this new release, the distiller intends to pay homage to his family roots in the Kentucky bourbon industry.

The 122.6 Proof expression offers flavours of the original small batch collection, which includes vanilla, caramel and spices.

Noe said: “This particular blend carries a lot of sentimental value for me. Each of the individual bourbons is special to me, just as they were to my granddad. I really wanted to make sure they came through the final blend in a way that would make him proud.

“Every aspect of Chapter 3 had to be absolutely perfect, the vanilla notes, the finish, the aroma. So I meticulously tested each blend to get it to a place that represented the entire Small Batch Collection while creating something totally new that I think people are really going to love.”

From this month, Little Book ‘The Road Home’ will be distributed across the US market in limited quantities for a suggested retail price of $124.99 per 750ml bottle.

Last September, Freddie Noe released the second expression of its blended whiskey series, ‘Little Book Chapter 2: Noe Simple Task’.

The expression offers a blend of three uncut and unfiltered Kentucky and Canadian whiskies.
