Culture By Photo by Griffin Sweet

Mixing two famous Canadian products such as rye whiskey and maple syrup may seem crazy at first, but the result is far from it. Tap 357 Maple Rye Whiskey is the culmination of a match made in heaven, a perfect blend of various aged rye whiskeys ranging from 3 to 7 years and fresh, “Grade 1 light” maple syrup from Quebec tapped at the first sign of the spring season. The nose is sweet and sugary with a hint of that notable rye scent, while the body features a bold maple taste that evens out to a smooth finish. If you’re new to rye, this is a perfect blend to start with. It’s great neat or over ice, and can be used in many a cocktail ideas provided by the makers of Tap 357 themselves. Just be sure to avoid adding this over your morning pancakes.Save that for the weekend.
