Leopold Bros. Three Chambers Rye Holiday Edition builds off of the brand's initial release of Three Chambers Rye. Where the initial Three Chambers Rye is aged 4 years, this year's Holiday Edition consists of a blend of barrels that are just under and over 5 years of age. The company plans on Holiday Edition being an annual release. This year’s release will be available in NY, MD, DC, NJ, GA, IL, CO, MO, FL, and TX.

The extra time in the barrel is notable as the sip brings an extra depth to it compared to the first edition. It still contains the base undertones of creamy malt and rye spice, but also adds layers of sweetness such as honey and summer fruits along with chocolate and more noticeable earthy notes. It’s suiting to call this a Holiday Edition since its extra depth makes it a great sipping whiskey to share with others. It’s not necessarily better than the initial Three Chambers Rye, instead offering a nice complementary sip. This is another hit from Leopold Bros. and should be on rye lovers' list to try.
