Chattanooga 91 Proof Straight Bourbon (Batch 19F17R), 45.5%

Price: $35 Issue: Winter 2019 Reviewer: David Fleming

This four-grain bourbon (corn, rye malt, caramel malt, and honey malt) starts with aromas of herb garden and notes of strawberry, dried apricot, orange, and licorice. There's more apricot and orange on the palate, as well as candied almonds, tiramisu, light oak, and pepper spice. The finish has maltiness and is also spiced and nutty, with chocolate sauce and an earthy back note. Rich and sweet, with balanced herbs and spice.
