Professional Wine Reviews for Hillrock Estate Distillery Rye Whiskey Double Cask

Rated 95 by Ultimate Beverage Challenge
Notes of grain and hay are refreshing, pure and pungent. Silken in the mouth, robust and fresh. Roasted barley is earthy with honeyed grain undertones. Peach blossom is floral more than sweet, adding dimension to each sip. (Ultimate Beverage Challenge, Finalist)
Rated 94 by Wine Enthusiast
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.

Additional Information on Hillrock Estate Distillery Rye Whiskey Double Cask

Producer Hillrock Estate Distillery

Region: New York

For over four hundred years, New York state has been consistently producing many of the United States finest wines, making the most of the oceanic climate and cool winds which blow over the many vineyards which surround the city. Indeed, certain wineries within the state boast an impressive heritage, with more than one dating back to the 18th century. The state itself has four key wine regions - Lake Erie AVA, Finger Lakes AVA, Hudson River and Long Island, and also features hundreds of smallholdings producing wines of a unique character made using more traditional methods. A wide variety of fine grape varietals are grown across the state, from esteemed old world grapes such as Riesling and Pinot Noir, to an expansive array of New World hybrid grapes which make the wines of this region so unique.

Country: United States

Of all the New World wine countries, perhaps the one which has demonstrated the most flair for producing high quality wines - using a combination of traditional and forward-thinking contemporary methods - has been the United States of America. For the past couple of centuries, the United States has set about transforming much of its suitable land into vast vineyards, capable of supporting a wide variety of world-class grape varietals which thrive on both the Atlantic and the Pacific coastlines. Of course, we immediately think of sun-drenched California in regards to American wines, with its enormous vineyards responsible for the New World's finest examples of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot based wines, but many other states have taken to viticulture in a big way, with impressive results. Oregon, Washington State and New York have all developed sophisticated and technologically advanced wine cultures of their own, and the output of U.S wineries is increasing each year as more and more people are converted to their produce.
