New York Hudson Rye Turning Heads
Created by Tuthiltown Spirits in Gardiner, New York, it is 92-proof, not that high for Rye and many of today's boutique whiskies. But it's high enough to give it a bit of heat on the tongue. The bottles, in limited supply, are hand-filled, capped and waxed. The starting price is $51.00. But the distillery also offers custom labeling and engraving for extra fees.
For Rye drinkers, there is only so many choices for experimenting. This expression, aged in American oak casks, is very much worth having on the shelf. Smooth, spicy and a touch of sweetness. Medium finish. I drank it straight, as well as having it in a Manhattan.
It's best to go to the website to find retail locations, which include Ace Beverages in Washington DC and Daly City, CA and 1st Avenue Wine and Liquors in New York City.
