TAP 357 is a small-batch whiskey, the connubial of two Canadian flavors: rye and maple, produced in the province of Quebec—where syrup tapping is native and was perfected centuries ago. The cask-aged 3-, 5-, and 7-year old blended rye whisky used in TAP 357 is produced at the oldest distillery in Western Canada, where it is distilled four times then matured in a combination of new, second and third-use bourbon barrels. Once aged, the Master Blender expertly blends the selected whiskies. then combines the blended rye whisky with pure “Canada 1 Light” maple syrup from the Quebec region. In a proprietary finishing process the maple-flavored rye whisky is then left to rest for an additional period until the Master Blender considers it ready for release. Lush notes of maple complement the rustic, rye, making it smooth and approachable with a rich, layered flavor possessing much depth. The aromatics and taste of the maple enhance rather than overwhelm the whisky flavors. This maple rye whiskey is an ideal introduction whiskey for the novice and a pleasurable one for the enthusiast. TAP 357 is a refined sipping whiskey that is best enjoyed on the rocks. SRP $30.
