We love maple syrup and we love whisky, and we’re wondering why we are just learning about Tap 357, a new spirit from Western Canada. This small batch whisky marries cask-aged rye with Canada 1 Light maple syrup. The sweet stuff was tapped in Quebec, which as it turns out is the birthplace of syrup tapping (who knew?). Anyone who’s spent some time in the country’s top cocktail bars should know how well maple and whisky go together – the makers of this spirit promise a blend that lets both flavors shine through. It’s 81 proof and should make a great base for some fall cocktails – keep your eyes peeled for a bottle, which will be available at your local liquor store for $29.99.
