The versions of these Kentucky straight bourbons are older and were a higher proof version than what is sold under those labels. Little Book Chapter 03: The Road Home is bottled at 122.6 proof.

"Little Book's third edition takes the drinker on a zig-zagging path. The nose starts with a dense, floral perfume and moves into a burnt bread aroma. The palate is dry and stony with a spiciness from the proof. With the addition of water, more fruitiness is exposed but the structure and body fall back quite a bit."
