Little Book

Price: $80 for 750ml]

Distilled/Owned by: Jim Beam / Beam Suntory

64.1% ABV

Mashbill: Blend of 4 year old bourbon, 13 year corn whisky, 6 year 100% malt whisky, and 6 year old high rye whisky

Aged For: Minimum 4 years

Cask Type: New charred American oak, and I assume ex-bourbon barrels

Chill Filtered: No

Color: Reddish copper

Drank: Neat, in a glencairn.

Nose: Corn, cinnamon, oak, vanilla, spices, young sharpness, caramel, and brown sugar sweetness

Mouthfeel: Thin and dry

Palate/Taste: Wood varnish, young mash, vanilla, oak, tobacco, and spices

Finish: Shorter, little warmth, vanilla, peanuts, and brown sugar

Thoughts: It’s a bit of a mess and all over the place, but it doesn’t taste bad. If you like strong American whisky, it’s likely you could enjoy this, but you’d be more apt to enjoy a Knob Creek Single Barrel pick if you are still a Beam fan.

Score: 80 out of 100
