Layered and complex, this is the first release of Dave Phinney’s highly anticipated three year-old Rye Whiskey. Each barrel is hand-selected for it’s unique attributes by Dave. The 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.
51% Rye, 45% Corn, 4% Malted Barley
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 92 points – For a younger expression of a rye whiskey, this 3 year brings a full range of rye expression. Light on the menthol and more dominant on the sweetgrass greenness of the rye, this whiskey also brings forward a pleasing soft green banana peel as much as it brings sweet cedar and straw characteristics. – 2019 Ultimate Spirits Challenge (Excellent, Highly Recommended).April/2019
