Notes from the Distillery:

Hillrock Solera Aged Bourbon is the first American whiskey to be aged in the centuries-old Solera method, used traditionally to create exceptional Sherries, Ports, Madeiras, and Cognacs. Solera aging involves a pyramid of barrels where a small portion of whiskey is removed periodically from the lowest tier of barrels and an equal measure of new whiskey is added to the top barrels. No barrel in the Solera is ever emptied, and over time, the older whiskey in the 

Solera mingles with younger whiskies to create unmatched depth and complexity.

After aging in American Oak and Oloroso casks in the Solera, this unique American whiskey is then finished in fine Rum casks.


Tasting Notes:

The Rum Finished Solera Bourbon starts off with inviting tropical coconut and vanilla bean. Next there is a rich scent of warm brown sugar and cinnamon that flirt with the high rye bourbon and sherry finished Solera base. The spirit is packed with light brown sugar, as well as flavors of cream filled sugar wafers and taffy. Next, floral notes of honeysuckle and wildflowers mix with the brown sugar and creamy vanilla as they fade and dissipate. The power and finesse of this spirit are found in the combination of toasted coconut, clove, and brown sugar. The flavors play off one another as the savory rum flavors linger.
