Ultimate Beverage Challenge 95
Dark flavors of pipe tobacco, grilled tangerine, and smoked anise flow from this supercharged rye. The palate is equally bombastic with big sweet oak flavors battling toe to toe with the spicy rye. Delicious but not for the faint of heart.
To date, Sauternes casks have been used to age primarily Scotch whiskies and Hillrock’s release will be the first American estate-grown and crafted 100% Rye whiskey to be aged in Sauternes casks. The terroir-driven clove and cinnamon spice of Hillrock’s award winning Double Cask Rye marries perfectly with the raisined apricot and citrus notes of Sauternes. The Sauternes finished Double Cask Rye has a copper, amber color and offers melon, honey, vanilla and spice on the nose. Flavors of honey-coated cashews, citrus and rye lead way to butter toasted bread, roast nuts and a long honeyed finish which perfectly balances the rye spice.
