Little Book Batch #1 The Easy Blended Straight
Little Book Batch #1 The Easy Blended Straight: The Easy is the first whiskey created by Freddie Noe, 8th generation whiskey maker and grandson of Booker Noe. Booker nicknamed Freddie “Little Book” hence the name of the whiskey.
Named after the childhood nickname given to Freddie by his grandfather, legendary master distiller, Booker Noe, Little Book is an annual, limited release series that will feature a new blend each year, presented uncut and unfiltered.
This will be an annual release with a different blend each year, and like Booker’s Bourbon, will be uncut and unfiltered. This whiskey is not a bourbon, but a blended American whiskey comprised of all straight whiskey. The components: 13 year-old corn whiskey (aged in used barrels), 4 year-old bourbon, and rye and malt whiskey each aged about 6 years. No neutral spirit, no color nor flavoring is added all of which are allowed in this category. Expected to hit shelves in October 2017.
