This is an unusual sort of review for me, but I've done a couple new makes before. Recently, I sat with Bourbonr, Breaking Bourbon and Dads Drinking Bourbon to select Chattanooga Whiskey's first ever single barrel select. In the tasting kit they sent us, they sent along some new make. I wanted to take a few minutes to give it a review. Expect reviews of the Single Barrels we tried soon. In the meantime, let's dive in.
Blackberry, french toast, nutmeg, maple syrupy. Rich and loaded with smells despite being new make. Wooooooo baby.
Rich on the palate despite the (complete) lack of age. Sweet syrupy, confectioners sugar, a bit of heat.
Short but lots of flavor - big malty notes, blackberry, toffee and french toast.
It’s clear to see how their aged spirit has so much flavor so young. This is excellent new make, perhaps the best I’ve had. I don’t rate these, but I’d consider having a glass of this if the time was right. I wish more producers gave us access to taste their new make without having to set foot on prem for a tour to get a drip.
