LITTLE BOOK CHAPTER 6: “TO THE FINISH”
Little Book Chapter 6: “To The Finish,” is the latest chapter in Eighth Generation Master Distiller, Freddie Noe’s acclaimed Little Book Whiskey series. The name of this year’s chapter is inspired by Freddie’s passion for both whiskey-making and cooking, and more specifically his curiosity for how flavors come together.
The kitchen has always been a place where the Noe family has come together to share traditions from generation to generation. These traditions around family meals, and Freddie’s adventures around the grill, inspired his work in the rackhouse for Chapter 6. Freddie uses the traditional method of smoking hardwoods to create different aromas and flavors in food, and he’s applied that same method to the whiskey-making process, using unique wood staves and barrel techniques for Chapter 6.

Little Book Chapter 6 “To The Finish” is composed of five liquid streams using different wood staves and barrel techniques that impart a unique profile due to the secondary aging. These liquid streams complement each other, resulting in an extremely approachable finished product, even for those who have yet to try a cask strength whiskey.
