Named in honor of the nickname Freddie's grandad Booker gave him,
Little Book is an annual whiskey series featuring new, unique blends-
a first for the family. Uncut, unfiltered* and always one-of-a-kind, each limited
release offers Freddie the opportunity to follow his curiosity to create a new
taste profile greater than the sum of its parts. From each spirits' mash bill and
age to where they were stored in the rackhouse, there are a million decisions
that go into the final blend. The possibilities are endless. Which is good.
Because Freddie has no intention of stopping any time soon.
Knob Creek 15 Year
In some ways, Knob Creek 15 Year offers exactly what you might expect it would. Aged oak dominates with sweet flavors underneath, it drinks right at its 100 proof point, and doesn't ever quite find itself out of bounds. Unfortunately, it probably won't knock anyone's socks off either. It maintains a traditional Kentucky bourbon flavor profile, and leans towards dry oak in the same way older Elijah Craig releases tend to do. Given the fact that many older bourbons being released nowadays either originate from Tennessee and share a familiar flavor profile, or are just very difficult to obtain due to being limited releases, those looking for more dominant aged oak with sweet undertones don't have a ton of options. Knob Creek 15 Year certainly delivers in that sense, offering drinkers a more traditionally flavored bourbon that shows its age.
Maker's Mark Wood Finish Series 2021
Our third limited release from the Maker's Mark Wood Finishing Series joins our previous years' expressions in honoring our signature bourbon - this time, amplifying the naturally present dried fruit and woody richness in a distinctively Maker's way. We like to say it tastes exactly how our barrel warehouse smells, with rich figgy notes complemented by tobacco undertones and a pleasantly dank woodiness.
*Alcohol cannot be shipped outside the State of Indiana. We will do our best to accommodate the winner.
