Slaughter House Whiskey 750ml







American Whiskey

This is a new American Whiskey procured by Dave Phinney. If you don't know Dave Phinney, he started Orin Swift Cellars after quite a distinguished run as winemaker at some of Napa's finest wineries (Opus One, Mondavi, Whitehall Lane). After spending 9 years in American oak, the spirit was further matured in Orin Swift Papillon (Bordeaux-style blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc) barrels ,which added perfumed aromatics and rounded out the mouthfeel. The spirit was then tamed with pristine water originating from a natural hillside spring found on Dave’s property 2000 feet above the Alexander Valley in California. Slaughter House's profile is intense and inviting with caramelized sugar, baking spices, dark fruits, butterscotch, vanilla and subtle smoky notes. The palate is smooth, ultra rich and layered. The finish is impressive with honey, toast and loads of caramel.
