Chattanooga 95 Proof Islay Scotch Cask Finish Straight Bourbon Whiskey

  • PRODUCER:

    Chattanooga Distillery

  • REGION:

    Tennessee, United States

  • AGING:

    4 Years

This limited-edition finishing series celebrates the union of Tennessee High Malt into a variety of classic finishing casks. Crafted from a combination of unique bourbon mash bills – each containing at least 25% specialty malt - each batch is made to complement the flavor characteristics of the finishing barrel.

For the second finish in this series, the distillers sought out one of the most famous whisky styles of Scotland - Islay scotch. Each batch is made from a blend of three finishing casks, sourced from three different distilleries in the southernmost part of the Isle – near Kildalton. This region of Islay is renowned for their rich, earthy and peat-forward scotches which are made from barley malt that is dried and smoked with peat moss native to the island.

Tasting Notes:

Earthy smoke, heather, honeydew, toasted oats, & toffee pudding.

Product Details

This limited-edition finishing series celebrates the union of Tennessee High Malt into a variety of classic finishing casks. Crafted from a combination of unique bourbon mash bills – each containing at least 25% specialty malt - each batch is made to complement the flavor characteristics of the finishing barrel.

For the second finish in this series, the distillers sought out one of the most famous whisky styles of Scotland - Islay scotch. Each batch is made from a blend of three finishing casks, sourced from three different distilleries in the southernmost part of the Isle – near Kildalton. This region of Islay is renowned for their rich, earthy and peat-forward scotches which are made from barley malt that is dried and smoked with peat moss native to the island.

To highlight and enhance the qualities of these finishing barrels, our distillers selected a pair of complementary-flavored mash bills, including B004 – a peated bourbon recipe containing peated malt, naked oat malt and honey malt.

Aged for over 4 years - including 3 months in 250-liter Islay Scotch hogsheads - the result is a celebration of one of the world’s most iconic whiskey styles, alongside our very own Tennessee High Malt.

About the Producer

Chattanooga Distillery craft whiskey at two locations: The Experimental Distillery and The Riverfront Distillery. The Experimental Distillery, open to the public for tours and tastings, pushes the boundaries of whiskey-making, crafting one-of-a-kind whiskeys that can’t be found anywhere else. Our Riverfront Distillery serves as the production home of our signature Tennessee High Malt bourbon.

Opened in March 2017 and located in downtown Chattanooga, the Riverfront Distillery transformed a historic car dealership into one of the largest craft bourbon distilleries in the South. This location serves as the production site of our signature Tennessee High Malt, our unique style of straight bourbon whiskey.

This grain-to-glass distillery is home to the custom-made 30ft Vendome copper column still and 100-gallon pot-still style double. With room to age more than 4,500 barrels of whiskey, the dunnage-style heated barrelhouse ebbs and flows with the hot & humid summers and mild winters of the Tennessee River Valley. Nestled inside the 46,000 square foot distillery is our 4,000-gallon charred, white oak Solera barrel, which finishes the signature Chattanooga Whiskey 91.
