Three Chord 12 year old Twelve Bar Reserve Barrel-Proof Straight Bourbon (Batch 0007), 53.5%
Butter pecan ice cream, peanuts in the shell, oily grain, milk chocolate, cooked orange, cherry tart, and blueberries on the nose. The palate is spiced, nutty, and chewy, with milk chocolate, orange soda, cherry cough drop, baking spice, brown sugar, a hint of eucalyptus, and loads of peanuts. More rich spice, chocolate, and fruit on the finish, along with peanut butter, spearmint, and generous oak. Not a hair out of place.

Three Chord Amplify Rye Whiskey (Batch 0015), 47.5%
Golden amber color. Aromas and flavors of rye crisps, baked apricot, nutmeg, fresh dill, and sage with a satiny, crisp, fruity medium body and a sleek, compelling, medium-long finish. A smooth, well-integrated rye with both spicy and delicate flavors that delight the senses; practically cognac-like.

Three Chord Blended Bourbon (Batch 0007), 40.5%
This Bourbon created by musician/producer Neil Giraldo, distiller/blender Ari Sussman, and their colleagues at Steel Bending Spirits takes sourced Bourbons and blends them together, then hits them with tonal vibrations designed to bring out desired flavors in the final whiskey. The nose has notes of caramel apples, honeycomb, soft spices, and hints of orange peel and oak. The taste is smooth, velvety, and sweet at first, followed by spicy notes of ground peppercorns and chili powder that build up nicely while not overpowering the sweeter notes underneath for an excellent balance and complexity. The finish is long and lingering with gentle spices, caramel, and honey sweetness. An excellent debut! (December, 2018).
