Beam’s Little Book Chapter 7 Brings The Hits Back From Previous Releases

Beam’s Little Book American whiskey series, over the years, has become a reflection of the whiskey interests of Freddie Noe, Eighth Generation Master Distiller of all things Jim Beam. For his latest offering, Little Book Chapter 7: In Retrospect, he takes a step back to revisit elements of each of the previous releases under this moniker.

Little Book Chapter 7: In Retrospect, according to those behind it, is a “blend of seven cask strength American whiskies – one curated from each of the brand’s previous six chapters and a seventh new addition.” It is thus not only a look back at what he’s created previously in this blended whiskey series, but also a “nod towards what’s ahead as he continues to explore new horizons of American Whiskey in his newly minted role of Master Distiller.”

“Being named Master Distiller was a humbling moment for me, and it inspired me to reflect on the whiskey journey I’ve been on so far,” Noe said in a prepared statement. “Little Book is a big part of that journey. Looking back on previous chapters’ liquid streams with fresh eyes to create something entirely new was an incredibly rewarding challenge – and a testament to the fact that there are so many possibilities yet to be uncovered in American Whiskey.”
