Three Chord Small Batch Blended Bourbon Whiskey 750ml
$122.99 price per bottle
Three Cord is made of Kentucky and Tennessee bourbons, aged between four and twelve years, all in first char American oak. The mash bill is 74% corn, 22% rye, and 4% barley malt.
Color: Amber hued with dark golden highlights the classic bourbon look.
Nose: There are immediate scents of caramel, toffee, and sugared apricot. There are more nuanced notes, but the overall scents are pleasant, if not sweet.
Palate: The sweetness continues on the first sip. The approach is one of honeycomb and sweet resin, caramelized fruit, maraschino cherry, and sugared vanilla. Interestingly, there are back notes that echo deeper flavors, though only minimally: cinnamon spice, cracked black pepper, elements of rye, toffee, orange zest, floral overtones and a barely noticeable component of coffee and condensed milk. There is a nice lingering finish, tingling as it does, and heat that will last for quite a while.
