Hillrock Estate Distillery Double Cask Rye Whiskey New York USA
Bold aroma of caramel and vanilla, with hints of prunes, apricots and rye. Notes of caramel and rye dominate the palate, and are complemented by touches of cinnamon, cloves, mint, and butterscotch. Long, warming finish that is slightly sweet.
This 100% rye whiskey is named Double Cask because it's aged in two different barrels, the last the most heavily charred. The end result is a deep, rich rye that shows off espresso, toffee, sarsaparilla and caramel. The finish reverberates with long echoes of clove, dried orange peel, nutmeg and baker's chocolate.
