Layered and complex, this is the first release of Dave Phinney’s highly anticipated three year-old Rye Whiskey. youngest Rye in the blend is three years old. Tiny lots are procured from Tennessee and each barrel brings personality and intrigue to the final blend. Aged for a minimum of three years in new charred American oak barrels and then uniquely finished in wine barrels from Dave’s Grenache project in Maury, France. Intense and exciting on the nose with appealing notes of orange peel, clove and candied ginger. Creamy and velvety with bright white pepper, berry compote and honey. The finish is persistent with layers of exotic spice and toasty vanilla.
