  • Intro:

    Distilled by Chattanooga Whiskey and finished in Tawny Port Casks, this wine finished expression from the Tennessee craft producer should be a treat. Aged for at least 3 years and finished for at least 6 months, we should see quite a bit of wine influence here.

  • Nose:

    Sweet wine, apricot, cherry, raspberry and cream. Some malt, plenty of oak - a welcome complexity.

  • Taste:

    Thin to medium on the palate. Sweet cream, apricot, cherry, fig and raspberry combine with plenty of oak, some tobacco and a great malt character. Drinks well for the age - much like a 6-8 year expression rather than under 4.

  • Finish:

    Long finish. The port brings a bit of complexity to the oak and malt. Nice caramel, cocoa, pepper, red berry and apricot jam here.

  • Overall:

    One thing I always appreciate about Chattanooga’s experimental nature is their reckless abandon to find the best of what works and what doesn’t. In this case, the Port Cask finish is a perfect demonstration of experimentation gone right - perfectly so. Tawny Port and Chattanooga’s High Malt Whiskey are great compatriots, and this bottling is a great success in my opinion.
