Little Book Chapter 7, titled "In Retrospect," is a masterful creation by Freddie Noe, the 8th generation master distiller from the James B. Beam Distilling Company. This installment stands out as it artfully blends seven cask strength American whiskies, incorporating one from each of the brand's six previous releases and introducing a new addition to mark its seventh chapter. This blend not only showcases Noe's reflective journey in whiskey making but also his forward-looking vision in exploring the vast possibilities within American Whiskey.
"In Retrospect" is distinguished by its complex aroma profile, starting with a strong caramel impression and unfolding into layers of red fruits, bubble gum, coconut, floral, walnut, clove, and corn grain scents. The palate is fruit-forward, transitioning into caramel sweetness, and the finish brings out the rye spice, dry oak, clove, and a hint of cigar box, with a touch of smokiness. The blend's components range across various types and ages of whiskey, presenting a challenge that Noe skillfully navigates to achieve a harmonious balance.
The whiskey, bottled at 118.1 proof, is recommended to be enjoyed neat or on the rocks, aiming to deliver an approachable experience even for those new to cask-strength whiskey. "In Retrospect" is available in limited quantities nationwide, emphasizing Little Book's commitment to expanding whiskey fans' palates and exploring the limitless taste profiles possible through blending.
