Freddie Noe, Eighth Generation Beam distiller, and son of current master distiller Fred Noe has released the second chapter in his acclaimed Little Book whiskey series, called “Noe Simple Task.”
Following last year’s inaugural Little Book release, “The Easy,” Freddie continues to showcase his innovative spirit and passion for blending with the creation of Little Book “Noe Simple Task.” Inspired during a trip to Alberta, Canada as part of his continued education, Freddie admired the differences in the Canadian whisky distilling process and the delicate flavors aged Canadian whiskies can achieve. He knew immediately that he wanted to find a way to incorporate some of these whiskies into his latest release, while still honoring his roots in Kentucky. The result is one-of-a-kind blend featuring three distinct, uncut and unfiltered liquid streams:
- 8-year old Kentucky straight rye whiskey
- 40-year-old whiskey made from 100% corn
- 13-year-old rye whiskey
As the name implies, creating this blend was “Noe Simple Task” for Freddie, who created nearly 40 different blends before deciding that #29 was the one. Bottled uncut at its natural proof of 118.8, “Noe Simple Task” features both floral and fruity notes that balance out the spice from the rye whiskeys in the final blend, with a finish that is long, lingering and spicy with notes of caramel.
“Noe Simple Task” is now available nationwide in limited quantities with a Suggested Retail Price of $99.99/750mL bottle.
