Chattanooga Whiskey is known for their willingness to push the envelope of what it means to distill and age whiskey. Aging a high malt bourbon for 3 years and finishing it in rare Extra-Anejo Tequila barrels for 7 months isn’t a common occurrence. It’s rightfully part of the distillery's Experimental Single Batch Series, as the three barrels that made up this release provide a tasting experience that is equally as unique. Even though this whiskey spent a total of just over 3.5 years in barrels, you would think it was more based on the sip. And what a sip it is. It will challenge even the most experienced whiskey drinker due to the amount of scents and flavors this packs in. If you’re a fan of unique barrel finished bourbons, this is one to try to track down.
