Tap Rye Sherry Finished 8 Year Old will hit stores mid-October and retail for $39.99/750ml bottle.
The new TAP marque is an eight-year-old Canadian rye whisky blended with Spanish Amontillado Sherry. It is made in small batches at the oldest distillery in Western Canada and finished in Quebec by Master Blender Michel Marcel.
The Amontillado Sherry for Tap comes from the Jerez region in Spain. The whisky is distilled multiple times in small batches using a pot still and continuous distillation before it is placed in casks for eight years. Once the whisky has come of age, the rye is finished with a small amount of Amontillado Sherry and placed in charred white oak bourbon barrels from North America where it rests for no less than 60 days.
