  • Excerpt: 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.

  • Excerpt: There was a light smokiness from the charred oak and a sweet, creaminess from the malt that balanced each other out nicely.

  • Excerpt: Chattanooga 91’s biscuit-heavy profile, touched just so with a bit of sweet honey, makes for an intriguing dive into an American take on malted grains. Or perhaps it’s refreshing for once not to have to review another young craft bourbon that tastes like nothing but popcorn.

  • Excerpt: Well done Chattanooga. For a 2 year whiskey with a unique mashbill, this is doing extremely well for the youth and I reckon it'll provide an excellent base for future releases.

  • Intro:

    The first of its kind, Chattanooga 91 is Tennessee's first high malt whiskey, and pulled from a solera vat to add even more complexity. Aged at least two years and bottled at 45.5% ABV, Chattanooga 91 promises plenty of flavor.

  • Nose:

    Caramel, sweet honey, faint nuttiness. Light oak, big cocoa notes and plenty of sweetness.

  • Taste:

    Thin to medium mouth feel. Cereal, cocoa, plenty of fresh biscuit. Lightly malty, some youth is apparent. Lots of complexity though, the malt is clearly pulling far more than expected and for the better.

  • Finish:

    Long finish. A bit young, but abundant with caramel, lemon poppyseed, black tea, pepper and toffee.

  • Overall:

    Well done Chattanooga. For a 2 year whiskey with a unique mashbill, this is doing extremely well for the youth and I reckon it'll provide an excellent base for future releases.
