Distinctive and pronounced, this is the first release of Dave Phinney’s highly anticipated five-year-old American Whiskey.
Each barrel is hand-selected for its unique attributes by Dave. The youngest Whiskey in the blend is five years old. Tiny lots are procured from Kentucky and each barrel brings a desired characteristic to the final blend.
Aged for a minimum of five years in ex-Bourbon barrels and then uniquely finished in wine barrels from Dave’s Napa Valley Cabernet projects.
The mature Whiskey is titrated to 88 proof with pure, pristine water from Dave’s high elevation property in Alexander Valley in Northern California.
95% Corn, 4% Rye, 1% Malted Barley
The first impression is rich and bold with aromas of maple wood, cardamom, buttery toast, and black cherries. Impressive intensity on the palate with a plethora of honey, caramel, hazelnut, and baked dark fruits. The finish is layered and complex.
