Proof66 Notes

Rock Hill Farms Single Barrel bourbon is made in Kentucky at the venerable Buffalo Trace Distillery (owner of the Ancient Age Distillery, which is often cited as the source). It is considered a "rye recipe" bourbon, which means that after the requisite 50%+ corn grain for all bourbon, there is a heavy percentage of rye as opposed to wheat or barley. This creates a spicier, more robust flavor.

Arguably the most complex bourbon I've had the pleasure to enjoy! Where do I even begin!? Been wanting to try this for a while but a cheaper option always got in my way - I paid $55 for my bottle. This is Buffalo Trace mash bill #2 just like ETL & Blanton's - 2 of my favorites. When I first opened the bottle, I got very heavy oak on the nose (in a good way). After about 3 days, the oak toned down a little bit and I started to pick up sweet corn and vanilla. On the palate I picked a lot of toasted oak, intense spice, and pine trees, almost like juniper berries. I've never had a bourbon that tasted this "piney" - very unique. It also added to the enjoyment of drinking this during the Christmas season! Then I get baked apple pie, clove, wintergreen tobacco, mint, caramel, creamy butterscotch, and toffee. The finish was surprisingly long (based on others reviews) and was very sweet with more corn, vanilla, and toffee. With a merely a splash of water, you would never know this is 100 proof. I LOVE the old school decanter style bottle and glass-top cork. I've had higher strength bourbons, but this is the most masculine tasting I've ever experienced. If you appreciate a complex bourbon, buy this if you can find it! Five stars all the way!

Excellent review. I'm having a glass of RHF as I read your review and I think you nailed it better than I did.

KaiserSoze (2016-01-10):
Thanks Muncher. Definitely a bourbon I will be buying next Christmas season again. The perfect bourbon to sip on next to your Christmas tree and in front of your fireplace!

I only found this for sale once in Wi. I will not let it get by me if I see it again.

Decidedly my favorite open bottle of bourbon right now. As others have noted, a strong sweet tasting bourbon, and for me, my favorite aspect is the creamy mouthfeel. It really feels good in the mouth, and lays an oily coat on everything it touches. I feel fortunately to have found 2 bottles that I'll have to baby until I can find more.

This bourbon is like Buffalo Trace, but with the modifications that I think make it better. On the nose the two are very similar. I get vanilla, dried fruits, and caramel (just like BT). The palate has that same wonderful, velvety caramel character, but it has more of the rye/oak spice that I wished the BT had when I wrote my review for it. The rye spice and oak/char hang around on the finish. Is it worth double the price of a bottle of Buffalo Trace? Probably not, but it's still an awesome bourbon presented in a beautifully elegant bottle.

The spirit journal gave RHF five stars. Neat or on the rocks, RHF has great opening notes of honey and subtly transitions into flavors of marshmallow and butterscotch. Long, lingering finish is surprisingly tempered considering its 100 proof. A fantastic bourbon.

A wonderful sipping whiskey! Beautiful candied nose with a crackling rye backbone. This one sips nicely neat (more than I would have expected given the proof) but certainly takes well to a bit of water.

This is an excellent bourbon in every respect. I buy a bottle every time I travel to scout where I can find it. Ohio has an issue with good liquor ....... The refuse to carry it.
