This is a craft expression from Chicago Distilling company using a stout mashbill
Green, caramel, big stout notes. Lactic sour milk, wet carboard, ethanol. Smells hot
Thin, sweet and very green. This is very young tasting. Prickly ethanol, wet cardboard. Cereal grains. Harsh wood. The stout notes are here but they dont integrate well with the whiskey
Short, hot and oddly lactic, stout notes are rich here. Not in a great way.
Funky, hot, young. That's it, let's move on. Get me out of here.
