Whiskey Review by FWL Contributing Editor Commander Glendidit

With this latest entry from the Cooper Spirits Company, Hochstadter’s Vatted Straight Rye Whiskey, American Rye has achieved near Islay-quality fineness.

Of course, this marvelous dram from Pennsylvania exists in a completely different whisky taste dimension from its single-malted Scottish cousins. As opposed to the single note sweetness of the Canadian labels, Hochstadter’s provides a more “full-spectrum” supply of fruit and spice notes. Hochstadter’s is a specialty blend conjured by the talented Mr Robert Cooper, a third-generation distiller.

He’s the alchemist responsible for re-animating several extinct liqueurs, such as St-Germain, an artisanal French liqueur made from fresh elderflower blossoms, Crème Yvette, a rich berry and violet liqueur and called for by name in vintage cocktail books dating back to 1890; Slow & Low Rock and Rye, a popular snort from the saloon era of the 1800's, and Lock Stock & Barrel, one of the world’s finest expressions of 13 year straight rye whiskey. His alchemy for Hochstadter’s Straight Rye Whiskey involves "A complex blend of hand-selected straight rye whiskeys, aged 14-15 years and curated from distilleries across North America. Kentucky, Pennsylvania, Indiana and Alberta.”

No way to call that “Too Canadian”!
