Review #508 | /r/Bourbon Review #290 – Chicago Distilling Company: Stouted Whiskey
The Schtick: This is a craft expression from Chicago Distilling company using a stout mashbill
Distiller: Chicago Distilling Company
Bottler: Chicago Distilling Company
ABV: 46% ABV
Nose: Green, caramel, big stout notes. Lactic sour milk, wet carboard, ethanol. Smells hot
Taste: 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 don’t integrate well with the whiskey
Finish: Short, hot and oddly lactic, stout notes are rich here. Not in a great way.
Overall: Funky, hot, young. That’s it, lets move on. Get me out of here.
