Review #0014 Iron Smoke Straight Bourbon Whiskey

Who makes it? Iron Smoke Distillery in Fairport NY

Mash Bill: ? 53% corn, apple wood smoked wheat, barley and just a slap tickle of rye!

Time to raise your fist to to whiskey and rock! We become bad-ass whiskey soaked scoundrels as we open this New York based bourbon coming in at 80 proof, aged 3 years with just a whisper of appley smoked wheat goodness. Before the review CEO and Founder Tommy Brunett gave us the skinny on Iron Smoke and the distillery just outside Rochester, NY.

Kris gave it 8

Erik gave it 7.6

How much: This will run you about 40 – 50 dollars

The 1816 gets its name from the trading post that was established on the Tennessee River in 1816.

Review #0013 Chattanooga 1816 Single Barrel & 91 Single Barrel

Who makes it? Tennessee Still House, bottled by Chattanooga Whiskey Co.

Mash Bill: ? (1816)75% Corn, 21% Rye, 4% Malted Barley, aged 11 years, (91 single barrel) Yellow Corn, Malted Rye, Caramel Malted Barley & Honey Malted Barley

We crack open a bottle of no longer made, can’t be found, straight from the experimental distillery Chattanooga 1816, 11 year 111.2 proof Single Barrel with Chris Helmly, who brought to the table, a bottle of Chattanooga’s FIRST EVER Tennessee High Malt Single Barrel coming in at 118 proof. We laugh, we cry, we sweat our balls off and remember the times of yesteryear when we froze those same parts. We have a great time, talking whiskey, single barrel selection and everything else under the sun.

Kris gave 1816 a (splashy)7 and 91 single barrel an 8

Erik gave it 1816 a (splashy)7 and 91 single barrel an 8.8

How much: The 1816 Single Barrel was limited release so it is no longer available but the 91 Single Barrel store pick can be found at Broudy’s Liquors for $59.99
