Excerpt: On the tongue, the whiskey is again bold with peanut character and a stronger butterscotch note. It’s a bit sweeter, but that’s held in check by notes of peanut, chocolate, and a hazelnut note.
Excerpt: Sipping this bourbon reminded me a lot of sitting next to a campfire and the aromas you got from those fall nights. This bourbon is still young but it can definitely hold its own in flavor and complexity.

Chattanooga 111 is a 55.5% ABV barrel strength release from Chattanooga Whiskey in Tennessee. Aged at least 2 years, this malt heavy whiskey certainly promises to be interesting. It's also funny that this review falls on today, as the Chattanooga Barrel I helped select for Seelbach's launched today as well. Let's dive in.
Cocoa, fresh baked cake, orange peel, spice drops and toffee. Interesting, almost Dickel like but in a good way. Excellent oak on the nose.
Medium mouth feel, bit of heat. Sweet cream, oak, cocoa and praline. Rich oak structure, far more than expected. Orange marmalade, some pepper. Really nice.
Medium in length, lots of toffee, honey, orange peel, some cocoa. Really impressive overall, even with a little heat.
Big fan of this. Lots going on with great structure and presentation despite the youth.
