Whiskey Discourse #4: Three Shores Black Label
Released: December 15, 2016
Three Shores Black Label, our latest whiskey, is NOW AVAILABLE at the distillery! 94 Proof | 750ml
The very limited (only four barrels produced!) fourth release in our conversation-starting Whiskey Discourse series, Three Shores Black Label combines our Three Shores Blended Whiskey with an additional year of aging-in French Oak-Cabernet Sauvignon barrels from one of the top Cabernet producers in Washington State. You'll recall the "discourse" with the original Three Shores Whiskey involves a conversation with iconic whiskeys from three different countries: a Highland Scotch, our own American high rye Whiskey, and a deep, rich and smooth Canadian Whiskey.
Distiller's tasting notes: “Don't be mislead by the shy way this rare Whiskey introduces itself—the light nose blossoms into a richness on the palate with notes of sweet salted caramel, baking spices, and candied orange peel. The most outstanding attribute of this lovely whiskey is the incredible, long finish so aptly described by one of our distillers, John Fausz: ‘The ghost of a whiskey spending its eternity on the palate.’ Well said. Enjoy!”
“All three Whiskeys are top representations of their respective styles. The goal here was to create something that excels beyond the individual components—the sum is definitely greater than the parts in this beautifully-balanced spirit. The flavor profile takes a new and sophisticated turn with the additional year of aging in French Oak Wine Barrels. We now have the French, Americans, Scots, and Canadians bellied up to the bar—You know this conversation is going to be interesting!”
