Hillrock Estate Solera Bourbon Pinot Noir Barrel Finish (750ml)
Hillrock Estate Solera Bourbon Pinot Noir Barrel Finish
After aging in the Solera, this unique American whiskey by Hillrock Estate is then finished in fine Shea Vineyard Willamette Valley Pinot Noir wine casks. The multi-barrel aging of this copper/amber whiskey with slight chestnut hues offers a nose full of bright red fruit (ripe cherries, blackberry and plums) and sweet desserts (taffy, crème brulee, creamy caramel and candied almonds). Warm vanilla and cherries, with sweet notes of toffee and french oak complimented by a bouquet of floral and fruity notes – complete the palate before leading to lingering rye spice, dried plums, allspice, nutmeg and vanilla flavors.
Region: New York
Color: Light copper /amber
Aroma: Mellow caramel.
Palate: The drying palate opens relatively woody, with cedar and spice, and a hint of raisin. A bit of water creates hints of cocoa powder, vanilla and almond tones and rounds out the oaky edges.
Finish: Long with a flurry of cinnamon, clove and nutmeg.
