Hillrock Solera Aged Bourbon (750ml)

$98.50

Hillrock Solera Bourbon is the first and only solera styled whiskey made in the US.

Solera aging is a process that has generally been reserved for aging cognacs, ports and sherries. It involves filling a series of casks at different intervals over a long period of time. As whiskey from the oldest cask is emptied and bottled, the cask is re-filled with an equivalent amount of whiskey from the second-oldest cask in the solera.

This cascading effect continues until the youngest cask in the solera is filled with new whiskey. As a result, no cask in the solera is ever fully emptied. In addition, as the younger whiskey ages and cascades through the solera, its average age and complexity gradually increases over time.

Hillrock marries small barrel-aged Hillrock Estate Bourbon with mature ‘seed’ bourbon before finishing in 20 year old Olorosso Sherry casks to balance the flavor and add layers of complexity.

Tasting Notes:

Nose/ Aroma: Pronounced notes of caramel, dried fruit, vanilla, oak and spice, accented by an elegant floral note.

Palate/ Taste: Complex, full-bodied that palate opens with rich notes of brown sugar, molasses and toffee, quickly followed by roasted corn, clove, cinnamon and a touch of spicy rye.

Finish: Characteristic Oloroso sherry notes of walnut, fig and candied fruit merge with caramel and butterscotch on the long, balanced finish.

Price: $98.50
