Savage & Cooke Lil Guero 7 Year Old Bourbon Whiskey
50% ABV (100 proof), 750 ml
Master Distiller Jordan Via deftly selected 38 barrels that comprise this remarkable blend of 7 year old Bourbon that was aged for the majority of its lifetime in coastal conditions at Savage & Cooke.
Name: The name Guero is very near and dear to Dave Phinney’s heart. It was the nickname given to him at his first harvest job where he was the only white guy on an all Mexican crew. It translates to “light-skinned”, and the days and nights of working in the winery as part of a temporary harvest team with this skilled crew remain some of Dave’s fondest memories.
Sourcing Distilled in Indiana and aged at Savage & Cooke in Northern California.
Barrels A deliberate selection of 38 new charred American oak barrels.
Water Proofed to 100 with pristine water from Dave’s high elevation property in Alexander Valley, 40 miles from the distillery.
Mash Bill 75% Corn, 21% Rye, 4% Malted Barley
Profile Expressive on the nose with maple, caramel and toasted oak. The palate follows with intense dark fruits, cacao and vanilla. Distinctive, delicious and memorable.
