Hillrock grows all the grain used in their whiskeys on their farm and processes the malt in their own malthouse, the first distillery to do both since BEFORE Prohibition.
Notes from the Distillery:
After aging in the Solera and Napa Cabernet casks, this unique American whiskey is then finished in fine Spanish Sherry casks.
Nose: offers a caramel-vanilla nose full of fruit (cherry, blackberry and citrus) and sweet desserts (taffy, caramelized sugar, plum and caramel).
Palate: Warm and sweet notes of vanilla, toffee and French oak complimented by a bouquet of floral and fruity notes of black cherry, currant, violet and nuts complete the palate
Finish: Long and vanilla-focused finish, highlighted with cherry and cabernet flavors.
90 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"This wine cask aged Bourbon offers a big, raucously oaked palate. Tamed with water, dusty cocoa segues effortlessly into warming, nutty tones, finishing with a distinct black cherry note on the tingly, cinnamon-spiked finish."
