The 1816 Cask is the second introductory product from Chattanooga Whiskey Co., the first whiskey brand in Chattanooga since Prohibition. It features the same MGP-sourced whiskey as 1816 Reserve, with a 75 percent corn, 21 percent rye and 4 percent malted barley mash bill. Here though, it's bottled at cask strength, 113.6 proof. Chattanooga Whiskey's Tennessee Stillhouse opened in March 2015, as they begin distilling their own whiskey.

Tasting Notes

"As should be expected, 1816 Cask packs a more potent punch than its 90 proof brother, 1816 Reserve. On the nose, there's caramel and butterscotch, with a rye spiciness and hints of pepper. Lingering in the background are lighter touches of honey, floral and melon. A modest smoky and charred molasses component is discovered as well. Full bodied and smooth, there's a pleasant warming on the finish but no burn, leaving spice as the lasting component. Add a few drops of water to bring out a richer, deeper sweetness, along with baked fruits and honey. "
