Amplify Rye is Three Chord’s signature rye whiskey. It definitely shows signs of youth, but makes up for it with a mixture of interesting flavors that somehow work together. Erring on the sweeter side, its combination of sweet, herbal, fruit, and spice notes explores quite a range. While there is no age statement on the bottle, a little reconnaissance reveals the combination of ryes in the blend are aged three years or less. This explains the whiskey’s youthful underpinnings, but despite the young age it is surprisingly drinkable and complex. With that being said, rounding out the component whiskeys with a little more time in the barrel might help this whiskey reach new heights.
