Hillrock 2020 Barrel Proof Double Cask Rye Whiskey (750mL)

$174.95

Hillrock Double Cask Rye is a unique American whiskey, handcrafted in small batches from rye grain, which has been naturally grown, milled, small batch pot distilled, aged, and bottled by hand all on our Hudson Valley Estate. After aging in new #3 char American oak casks, the award-winning Field-to-Glass® whiskey is then aged in #4 char new American oak casks which add layers of caramel and vanilla to complement traditional rye spice.

After aging in those two separate new charred American white oak casks, this unique triple cask matured whiskey is then finished in fine Spanish Port wine casks for sixty-nine days to add exceptional smoothness and hints of plum, raisin and candied fruit to complement the traditional rye spice notes.
