Tasting Notes

Hillrock Single Malt is the result of a farm to glass operation at the distillery grounds in New York's historic and picturesque Hudson Valley. All of the spirit that goes into bottle comes from barley that is grown, floor malted, pot distilled, and aged at the estate. Before bottling, all of the whisky is finished in select Pedro Ximenez sherry casks. Flavors and aromas of chocolate malt and seasoned wood spice are complemented by a creamy textured spirit with a lovely toasty finish. Additional notes include dates, maraschino, panettone, cigar tobacco and a hint of truffle oil.

Staff Pick Notes

Two hours north of the city is the pre-prohibition Hillrock Distillery in the Hudson Valley. The estate overlooks rolling hills of homegrown barely that is used to make the incredible craft spirit you see here. Hillrock's newest release features Speyside peat that has been smoked for 20 hours to achieve a complex whiskey that is layered with smoke, salt water, caramel, tobacco and chocolate. After a few minutes in the glass you'll notice the peat subsiding to allow more aromatics to come through. Finishing in a sherry cask gives the whiskey a nice spice and contributes to the long delicious finish. Hillrock Distillery's craftsmanship is bar none, I recommend their Single Malt to whiskey lovers of all kinds.
