Proof66 Notes

Hudson Single Malt Whiskey is made from a classic tradition of 100% malted barley--that is, "single malt." It is the same method in which scotch whiskies are made, only this one is done in New York using New York grain. Thus, Tuthilltown calls it an "American reinterpretation of traditional Scottish and Irish whiskies." The price quoted is for a 375ml bottle, as 750ml bottles either are not produced or are extremely hard to find.

Tuthilltown Spirits was founded in 2001 on the site of Tuthilltown Gristmill, which had been grinding grain to flour using the local river as power for over 220 years. Ralph Erenzo and Vicki Morgan purchased the property and put a microdistillery on the site. We were told that they at first wanted to make a world-class climbing facility over the rocky terrain but that local opposition squelched the idea and they had to something else... and that something else turned into spirits. They first produced a vodka two years later. Since that time they have expanded into several spirits and hope to renew the pre-Prohibition New York spirit of craft-distilling. Tuthilltown's Hudson Whiskey brand was acquired by Willaim Grant & Sons in 2010.

A interesting whiskey with somewhat unique flavor profile. A bit young and harsh but interesting. Rather a hybrid between a proper Irish Whiskey and a bourbon - qualifies for a Irish Whisky by mashbill if not geography, bourbon by wood and not mashbill. A bit similar to the young whiskeys you see in Spain and Italy where they like them a bit rough and ready.

Rather pricey for what it is - bottom line I can't really recommend it unless you are a hard core collector of whiskey. Not something I would choose to drink on a regular basis and would put my $40 toward something else frankly.
