The first rye whiskey to be made in New York State since prohibition - well legally anyway - Hudson Manhattan Rye Whiskey is pot-distilled from 100% rye grain, matured in small new oak casks in New York state.

Each hand-filled and numbered apothecary-style bottle is finished with a natural cork stopper and wax seal which must be cut with a knife to open. Bottled without chill filtration.

There is no minimum age requirement for the term whiskey in the USA (only 'straight' rye whiskey must be aged for a minimum of two years) so don't be misled by the label's, "Stored in New Oak Less Than Four Years" - the key words here being "less than". However, Tuthilltown uses unusually small oak casks which affect the spirit's flavour more quickly and differently to full-size barrels.

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 19/10/2014


(sample year: 13, batch: EZ, bottle: 365) Clear, deep coppery amber.


Newly sawn oak, nutmeg, cracked red pepper corns, nubuck leather, toasted brazil nuts, breakfast tea leaves, toffee apple and faint clove spice.


Powerful dry oak, pencil shavings, roasted nuts, stewed apple, nutmeg, cinnamon, black pepper and clove.


Long lingering, toasted nuts and dry spicy newly sawn oak. Overall: Overly oaked but in a strangely appealing way.
