The titular invitation right here is much less distinctive than you’d suppose. It’s mainly an invite to, nicely, drink this whiskey, once more a singular mix of bourbon and rye.

What’s within the combine? 4 totally different whiskeys, together with:

2-year-old Kentucky Straight Bourbon
3-year-old 100% malted rye
5-year-old Kentucky Straight Bourbon
15-year-old Kentucky Straight Bourbon

Proportions are unspoken, as is typical for this model.

As with many a bottling of Little E book, the whiskey is a little bit uncommon, although this one sticks so much nearer to a basic bourbon formulation than another bottlings within the collection. Pretty conventional on the nostril, the whiskey pours on basic bourbon notes, with numerous barrel char, cloves, and recent pepper within the combine. Nicely-charred brown sugar provides sweetness, however lower than you would possibly suppose.

On the palate, there’s some youth clearly evident within the combine, with telltale peanut and popcorn components initially dominating. This veers towards a creamier peanut butter character because the palate evolves, with inexperienced herbs and recent reduce grass changing into stronger. Because the end approaches issues get extra boldly natural, with notes of thyme and sage, a nod maybe to the rye affect. Floral and a bit doughy on the fade-out, there’s a nice and lingering be aware of vanilla and only a little bit of baking spice to shut issues out.

It’s a enjoyable little whiskey however nothing wildly sudden. Price sampling at the very least.

116.8 proof.
