Tap Rye Sherry Finished 8 Years Old Canadian Rye Whisky
This Whisky is distilled in both a pot still and column stills. The Rye Whisky then aged for a minimum of eight years before it's given a small addition of Amontillado Sherry and briefly rested in charred white oak casks. The Sherry notes in this Whisky are subtle and therefore supporting the rich, rye core. Often Sherry finishing can takeover.
Tap Rye Canadian Whiskies now have three expressions of spicy Canadian Rye. This Sherry Finished Whisky is joined by a Port Finished Rye and their original Maple Rye that offers a hints of sweet Canadian Maple married with the rich Rye Whisky.
Brilliant, crystal clear. The aromatics are very grain focused with toasted grains and nuts with supporting notes of clove, allspice, cinnamon bark, rancio, vanilla bean, and black pepper. The palate echoes the nose perfectly with a lush, caramel accented sweet grain core with loads of spice, dried fruit, and pepper. Wonderfully intense without being over-the-top showing great balance with a generous dose of acidity that keeps it vibrant.
How to Serve
Tap Sherry Finished is great as a solo performer or served on ice. It is also great in cocktails making a fine addition to the traditional Manhattan.
