Hudson Baby Bourbon 46% ABV (50ml)
A half-bottle of the splendidly-named Hudson Baby Bourbon - the first legal aged grain spirit to be produced in New York since Prohibition ended over 75 years ago. Made using local NY state corn with double distillation taking place in a small copper pot still, then followed by maturation in small charred new American oak casks. Non chill filtered to give a rich full flavour experience.
NOSE Robust vanilla with a new oak warmth, popcorn and a lingering whiff of sugared almond.
PALATE Marzipan and candied ginger, with a thick layer of caramel on top. A touch of rye spiciness develops.
FINISH Chocolate peanuts, buttered corn-on-the-cob and a light glaze of honey.
