Little Book No. 5
Kris’s cousin Jason comes down to visit from Atlanta carrying something special to review. He brings Little Book No.5 “The Invitation”, his first foray into the more expensive whiskies. We pop it open, find out how Little Book got it’s name and that Freddie Noe is an 8th generation distiller! This a once a year bottling of blended whiskies that Freddie Noe personally picks out and has done so for the past 6 years. The nose on this one will definitely keep you on your toes with so much going on and it’s interesting that one out of the four components is a 100% malted rye and how much it really shows through. We have a debate over Atlanta vs. Buffalo snow and how when we all hear that glug glug sound and what we hope it means someone is pouring whiskey. Then we get down to business of nosing and tasting. Erik says she’s a thick lady while Jason enjoyed the heat and Kris thought it would pair well with a nice Maduro cigar. See what we rated it and if it gets the Whiskey and a Hammock stamp of approval!
