Neil Giraldo "When I first began playing guitar, I realized that if I could learn to play three basic chords — the roots of the blues — feel their meaning, perfect their sound, I could have a career in music. I also recognized that the beauty of the perfect melody, the arrangement of those notes, and those tones' vibrations could impact one’s mood and elicit powerful emotions. One night as I was sipping bourbon with friends, the conversation naturally turned to music. Sound. Vibrations. I had an epiphany: take that same philosophy of making music and apply it to blending bourbon. Use the concept of sound and vibrations that affect our hearts and souls to alter and enhance the structure of bourbon. I understood how bourbon aged in the wood. Could rhythmic disruption blend a bourbon that embodies the influence of those three chords: balanced, bold, and Perfectly Tuned?
What did we know about bourbon? Well, we knew we loved it. Did we know if we could develop an innovative process using rhythmic disruption that would create a distinctive taste profile? Maybe.
But we wanted to do more than just create another bourbon. We wanted to shake up the industry yet maintain respect for the tradition and legacy of heritage bourbons. To look at the process differently. To create a taste profile comparable to the finest bourbons in the world. To craft a new classic bourbon with the same precision and passion with which I create music. The product we created is Three Chord Bourbon. The process with which it is blended we call “Perfectly Tuned Taste.”
The name refers to rhythmic disruptions that are used to finish this small-batch Bourbon blend. Overall, this is a relatively light sipper, melding warm nuttiness on nose and palate with maple, cedar and spice.
