Three Chord comes out strong with their first limited release that’s a 15 year old Kentucky-sourced bourbon. While its age statement is certainly eye-catching, it's the whiskey itself that truly makes its mark. With a mouthcoating viscosity and its dark berry, brown sugar, and old oak flavor profile, it makes a great impression. With only two batches of 10 barrels a piece that produced 125 bottles per barrel on average, this is a very small release. You’ll likely have sticker shock from its $190 price tag, but ultimately find repose in its persuasive sip.
