From the Cascade Hollow Distillery in Tullahoma, I’m told this is the oldest Tennessee whiskey ever bottled [as of July 2017].
N: Despite a modest abv level, this is full-on laminated-fungal-emulsion. A nose-kicker.
T: Only 43.5% yet still super-charged/full of beans down the back straight. Vegetal=oily sweet with fenugreek!
F: Bitter-sweet, the 17 years of wood impacting hugely on all the things.
C: Wow, refreshing. I imagine that abv is what the angel’s left at natural cask strength. I wonder what the same spirit put in a refill cask for the same period or longer would have turned out like?Scores a B+
