So much about Tap 357 Canadian Maple Rye Whisky works, making it a superb example of the possibilities of flavored whiskies. It’s tasty, high proof, reasonably priced and it mixes well into cocktails. The brand sourced blended rye from the oldest distillery in Western Canada and added in just enough “Canada 1 Light” maple syrup to offer authentic flavor. It’s not saccharine or fake, it’s not overwhelming and keep in mind, this is a potent 98.6 proof, so it’s no joke. The dark rye notes shine through and it offers heartier-than-expected mouthfeel.
