Chattanooga 1816 Cask, 56.8%

Price: $40 Issue: Fall 2015 Reviewer: Lew Bryson

More nose than on the Reserve (see below); no surprise. Sweet spicy candy, alcohol heat, and oak. The spicy candy—clove, cinnamon, allspice—blooms in the mouth, firing up oak and corn, with a meaty fullness and a warming finish. Quite a bit more complex and interesting than the Reserve. Sourced whiskey.
