Ok… I continue to be a sucker for a pretty bottle in a box. The newest one is Little Book 3. The first version was barely ok, the second was actually ok, but neither were worth the price. Did they learn and make the third one better? No. This is by far the worst….
Nose is ok… pencil shavings, butterscotch and granola. Here is where is departs, once you drink it. The mouthfeel starts being pretty good, but then immediately the heat takes over and dominates everything. This is completely off balance, with heat being the dominant factor.
This is just sad. The mouthfeel is decent and the finish is actually ok after the heat subsides but the heat is just such the dominant factor here. I’m not sure how this passed through QA, but Beam needs to go back to the drawing board on this experiment. Hopefully this is the last Little Book I buy in the store before I try. 75/100.
