Savage & Cooke Lip Service Rye
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.
The mature Rye is titrated to 90 proof with pure, pristine water from Dave’s high elevation property in Alexander Valley in Northern California.
51% Rye, 45% Corn, 4% Malted Barley
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.
