Three Fingers High is a complex and balanced blend of 100% Rye Canadian Whiskies with a classic, spicy palate.

Pacific Edge Wine & Spirits was founded in 2002 by Joel Beth and Richard Trachtenberg in Agoura Hills, California — about half way between Venture and Downtown Los Angeles. The team has decades of experience in the Spirits industry. Not only do they act as the distributor for major international Spirits brands, but they have a portfolio of Spirits that they own and manage as well, spanning a wide range of Whiskies, Tequilas, Liqueurs, Cognac, Vodka, Gin, and just about everything else you might imagine.

Perhaps the best way to think of Three Fingers High 12 Year Old Canadian Whisky is as the Johnnie Walker of Canadian Whisky. They assemble a blend of twelve year-old 100% Canadian Rye Spirits and marry them in a variety of Sherry casks for finishing. The Spirits came from both pot still and continuous columns, resulting in a complex expression of a true Canadian art form with plenty of classic Rye spice and an undertone of caramel apples.

Smartass Corner:
"Three Fingers High" refers to the depth of Whisky poured into a glass — roughly equivalent to three shots and a goodly portion no matter how you measure it.

Stefanie
Stefanie,
Love the warm spices. Smooth and mildly sweet. Kinda reminds me of a good dessert.
 
Christopher
Christopher,
The nutmeg sticks out right away... really not that spicy of a finish but over ice was enjoyable.
 
Gabriela
Gabriela,
It was alright, but unremarkable. Will do, but won’t make it to the shopping list.
 
Nathan
Nathan,
Advent #10. Got the aromas but didn’t taste much. It was definitely smooth but it didn’t work for me overall.
 
Maryjo
Maryjo,
With ice. pretty good. Nice use of nutmeg and cinnamon.
 
Holly
Holly,
Did not enjoy from the advent calendar. Needed water or ice to make it drinkable.
 
Dan
Dan,
Really Good.
 
Louise
Louise,
It’s really smooth. You could sip it all night. The nutmeg is the main thing.
 
Skip
Skip,
Spicy but still vey smooth - this showed up in my 2020 Advent Calendar and was a "100% Buy" review!
 
Lawrence
Lawrence,
Rye spice lingers in the throat
 
Jason
Jason,
Not as spicy as I expected. Lasting burn, some you would want to drink on a cold night.
 
Sean
Sean,
Ok, pretty mild, nothing that stands out, but glad II tried it, eh?
 
Augustine
Augustine,
Very smooth & mellow rye. Age has soften the rye bite out of this drink. Solid value at $35-$40 range if you are a fan of rye drinks.
 
Tommy
Tommy,
It's just OK. Not a great taste, but at least it doesn't have a bite. Pretty smooth. Wish it had more flavor.
 
Neil
Neil,
ok for something this old I figured it would be more complex
 
Stephen
Stephen,
Potent notes of spices like nutmeg and cinnamon. It’s ok, but it doesn’t all work out to be a terrific drink.

Nutty
 
Stephen
Stephen,
Nothing I’d go out of my way for but it was pleasant. Chocolate notes on the finish with the addition of some water

Good flavor
 
Kris
Kris,
Better than average rye.
 
Paul
Paul,
The apple and spice are coming through pretty strongly with this one. A bit less complex than I like most though.
 
Dustin
Dustin,
A bit more sharp and terse than I would have thought for a Canadian whiskey. Some of the flavor of an apple peel with the spices and not much of a finish
 
Jason
Jason,
The alcohol burn on the nose was a bit much at first. Made the overall smoothness surprising. Sweet and a little spice. Easy sipping, nicely balanced.
 
Vincent
Vincent,
Advent Day 10 - a nice warm, refreshing dram. Carmel and spice on the nose with notes of cinnamon. Strong black pepper on the palate. Smooth, warm finish perfect for a cold day.
 
Barry
Barry,
Apple Pie meets whiskey. Mellow, easy to drink. Sweet after taste. Apple, cinnamon, nutmeg and brown sugar. What’s not to like.
 
Mark
Mark,
A good sipping whiskey, clean, refreshing with a hint of spice and sweetness
 
Mike
Mike,
Rye right on the nose. Caramel start and spicy finish.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
This isn't something I'm going to ever reach for, but if given a glass I wouldn't turn up my nose. Overall, feels fairly inconsequential for a 100% rye. Get chocolate and green apple up front and the vague herbaceous quality that I associate with rye. I actually don't taste baking spices as much as ... maybe bay? Some herb I associate more with savory dishes than sweet. Finish has sweetness and a bit of bite, but not very much.
 
Lea
Lea,
Earthy, spicy notes.
 
Nicholas
Nicholas,
A little too simple, watery. I like the pepperiness, but for a rye I enjoy the usual rye bite and it's not really here for this one.
 
Derek
Derek,
Mildly sweet nose with tones of cinnamon and a touch of nutmeg. Opens on the palate with a fairly smooth taste of cinnamon followed by a decent kick of spice. Not really much of a finish to speak of after that. Overall, it’s pleasant enough but not particularly complex or memorable.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Tastes distinctly Canadian. Like maple trees in the late fall just before winter starts to set in. Nutmeg and cinnamon caught me off guard, but its short-lived with a quick spicy finish.
 
Julie
Julie,
Once you get past the alcohol vapor... a touch of grass and tart green apples on the nose. It lures you in with a sweet, syrupy kiss on the tongue that's immediately followed by a big spicy rye bite which slowly fades into a soft pepper finish.
 
Thomas
Thomas,
Overly sweet and one dimensional for me. Not a fan.
 
Todd
Todd,
Not my favorite but also not bad. The nutmeg cones through which is why it isn’t rated higher.
 
Frank
Frank,
(Advent 2020, #10) In the nose I get some spiciness & cinnamon. You get more of that on the palate, some baking spice, but not too complex with a decent finish.
 
Bob
Bob,
Flaviar Advent Sampler Day 10. I'm not a big fan of Canadian whisky but I'd buy a bottle of this. Nice flavor profile, very sippable. I'd keep a bottle of this in my home bar because I believe it would appeal to a variety of tastes.
 
Jesse
Jesse,
Way to much pepper and bitterness for me
 
Adam
Adam,
As far as Canadian whiskeys goes, this is pretty good. Flavors are good, but I’m not getting the complexity described on the spiral. Spicy, vanilla and rye is about all I get.
 
Ryan
Ryan,
This is like the taste of autumn. Tastes a little woody and like toasted nuts with a little apple at the end. It does have a strong alcohol nose, but I would love to sip this in front of a bonfire as the air starts to chill.
 
Andrew
Andrew,
Apple, cinnamon, nutmeg- a great Canadian rye
 
James
James,
Applely, spicy, cinnamon, nutmeg—tasted like fall smells
 
Todd
Todd,
This one is okay, and has an element of smoothness to it; at the same time it’s somewhat non-descript, as nothing special stands out.
 
Kent
Kent,
I like the complexity of this blend, but it lacks a flavor that takes the lead. Overall enjoyable.
 
Susan
Susan,
Advent #9 Didn't pick up any sweetness and it has a notable bite to it. Will agree that it is lacking for flavor and it does have warmth. Rubbing alcohol on the nose has to be noted. Would not purchase.
 
Bryan
Bryan,
Sweet but an overall lack of lasting flavor doesn’t impress me
 
Daniel
Daniel,
Advent 2020 #10 - hints of spice, good warmth. Decent smoothness to it with a bit on the back end. Wife rates it a 2 but I like it!
