Hudson Baby Bourbon Whiskey

Hudson Baby Bourbon Whiskey – is distilled in New York by Tuthilltown using 100% New York corn before being aged in American Oak barrels.   The distiller’s website states that this is the first legal pot-distilled whiskey made in New York since prohibition. 

(92 proof) – Year 12, Batch 2, Bottle 1218

$45 for 375ml

This was gift for Jason after his wife had a fantastic weekend in New York City.  This was a present and is really neat to have in your cabinet for guests to try. We must mention that this is a unique bourbon as it 100% corn and made in Gardinier, New York.

Tasting was done on the rocks.

Rater Comments
Jason A really unique flavor one that you should really try – quite expensive at 375ml.  Not one I will reach for but if someone is looking for different this is your choice. I have no plans to move to NY and this does not help.
Tripp Come on New York; you can do better! As a native New Yorker, I was really hoping to love this bourbon. Fail. Not sweet and not particularly pleasant on the palate.  I would not reach for this and the price makes it hard to buy. However, it remains a great novelty bourbon especially when considering the bottle. Not worth the money is the key thing to remember – yet a great gift idea.
Gill & Tony No further commentary – we are just drinking tonight
