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 15 year old Whiskey Drummer Kentucky Straight Bourbon, 58.95%

On the nose, figs, nuts, and integrated spice mingle with caramel-swirl brownie and tobacco barn; candy apple and grape Kool-Aid emerge with water. The palate has nutty, sweet, savory, and spicy flavors in abundance: dark chocolate-covered mint, Cherry Coke, cinnamon, pepper, allspice, roasted pecans, maple syrup, and polished oak. It’s consistent into the finish, which has cinnamon, black pepper, mint, dark chocolate, and lengthy varnish. Seamless to the last and, for a whiskey this mature, no water is necessary.

Finished in pinot noir casks. Stewed fruit on the nose, along with cream soda, lemon oil, graham cracker, honeyed granola, and herbal tea.

There is great length on the finish, where rich almond nuttiness emerges with ginger and more cocoa powder. With water, berried sweetness and honey roasted almonds. Well balanced.

Three Chord Blended Bourbon (Batch 0007), 40.5%

Fruit-forward on the nose with apples, blueberries, cinnamon, coffee ice cream, and chocolate-caramel milkshake. It’s silky and light-bodied in the mouth, with a heaping slab of dry oak, peanut shells, walnuts, pepper, cacao nibs, and orange peel. The oak persists on the finish, which is a bit abrupt.
