WE 92 Pts - According to Wine Enthusiast - This maple-syrup-flavored whisky is sure to please anyone with a sweet tooth. The base is a small-batch blend of 3- 5- and 7-year-old Canadian rye whiskies, lending backbone to the big maple and vanilla flavors, with a touch of peach and clove on the finish. Good for sipping over ice or mixing, as in Tap 357’s suggested cocktail, The Montreal––a riff on the Manhattan.
TAP 357 is a small-batch blended Canadian maple rye whisky. It is a marriage of two purely Canadian flavors: rye and maple.
TAP 357 is crafted from cask-aged 3-, 5-, and 7-year old blended rye whiskies that have been expertly blended with pure Canadian maple syrup derived from maple trees tapped at the first hint of spring in the province of Quebec.
The 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, Master Blender Michel Marcil expertly blends the selected whiskies. Next, Marcil combines the whisky in Quebec with pure “Canada 1 Light” maple syrup from the region. In a proprietary finishing process the maple-flavored rye whisky is then left to rest for an additional period until deemed ready for release.
Our syrup comes from the world-renowned maple syrup region of Quebec; only "Grade 1 Light" Canadian maple syrup is used in the production of TAP 357. 40.5% ABV.
