What does a bourbon podcast do for its 300th podcast episode ?
Well of course we review a Tennessee Whiskey which is technically just a bourbon . There we said it!
We recently bumped into the guys from Three Chord Bourbon and they handed us a bottle of their Tennessee straight whiskey . This isn’t our first trip down The Bourbon Road with Three Cord bourbon or their delicious whiskey from Neil Giraldo.
Tasting Notes: Three Cord Tennessee Straight Whiskey
Vital Stats: This straight Tennessee whiskey has been aged for a minimum of 36 months and has a mash bill of 80% corn, 10% rye, and 10% malted barley with an MSRP of $35. Its 85 proof.
Appearance: A change from there standard bottle, makes sense with the glass shortage with honey golden whiskey inside. We much prefer this bottle for pours.
Nose: southern sweet tea with a zest of lemon and some minerals. Just a hint of caramel and a light spice from the lemon.
Palate: Flintstone vitamin minerals with that southern sweet tea matches the nose. There is a little bit of bitterness on the back end. The citrus gives it a little spice. A little sorghum molasses and caramel.
Finish: Medium with a slight Tennessee hug
Overall: A nice Tennessee whiskey that can stand on its own. We certainly could have one good whiskey session with it. The price point is not going to break you so this is a buy for us. Sip on this with some friends and listen to some Pat Benatar & Neil Giraldo. We guarantee you will enjoy both.
