Produced using a variety of rye, malted ryes and corn, Chattanooga released their first rye whiskey with a minimum age of 3 years and a bottling proof of 49.5% ABV.
Enticing - brown sugar aplenty, alongside pepper, some clove, and a delightful cocoa note.
Moderate mouth feel. Proof rests nicely - great choice on the bottling ABV. Cocoa, honey, a bit of clove and spicy pepper ensure you know this is a rye. It reminds me a bit of Mexican chocolate a bit - spicy and cocoa forward in a rich, savory display.
Medium finish, heavy on the cocoa once more.
An excellent inaugural rye release from Chattanooga. A producer doing things right lands a swing and a home run once again. Watching future ryes from them with great anticipation.
