Tasting Notes

"Forty Creek creator John Hall is a musician who has taken musical sensibilities and applied them to whisky layering. Three Grain Harmony is restrained like Miles Davis where building a melody over time is more important than a flurry of notes off the top. Complex aromas of vanilla toffees, gentle flowers and fruity citrus are accented by a rye-spice back beat. Slowly these develop in the mouth with candied fruits in a Flintstones vitamin kind of way. Exotic sandalwood flashes during the finish for a final muffled timpani roll. Yes, John Hall has figured out a way to rock the timpani."
