Lip Service is the latest release from renowned winemaker Dave Phinney's Mare Island distillery. Supple three-year rye whiskey sourced from Tennessee and finished in Dave's Grenache barrels from one of his projects in France. This is an intense rye that will have your palate dancing. Candied orange peel, cloves and a hint of gingery spice open the aromatics and lead to a velvety palate full of jammy fruit, honeycomb and spice notes. The American oak spice and vanilla shine on the finish. This is a sensational first effort for a rye whiskey and you'll be hard-pressed to find one this full-flavored, balanced, and graceful for this price.
