Tuthilltown Spirits New York Corn Hudson Whiskey

The next stop on my journey thought the wonderful world of white dog is Tuthilltown Spirits Hudson New York Corn Whiskey.

Located in the Hudson Valley, about two hours away from New York City in a town called Gardiner, Tuthilltown Spirits is another fantastic micro-distillery using local grains, small batch distilling and a hand-crafted process that ensures each bottle of spirit they produce is the best it can be.

Hudson New York Corn Whiskey (92 proof, $35 for 375 ml) is made from 100% New York corn and has a nose of wet concrete and buttery popcorn. Its heritage corn taste has deep earthy tones, not as sweet as other corn whiskeys, with more savory flavors like corn bread and corn roasted in the husk notes. It has a nice finish with some good heat and a nice long tail with excellent flavor that is exceptionally smooth and focused.

Hudson’s is not as sweet as most corn whiskeys I’ve had, but that’s not a bad thing. There’s a simple elegance to the savory notes it delivers and it’s one of the smoother and more supple white dog whiskeys I’ve tried.

The only thing I don’t like about the Hudson Whiskeys are their bottles. Sealed with a hard wax, it’s difficult to open, and then once open, little bits of wax need to be tended after so they don’t get into your glass. I found it more difficult to pour from these stout shape bottles and was more apt to have whiskey running down the neck of the bottle or the side of my glass. But, it’s hard to complain about the bottle when what’s inside is so good.

It’s important to note that this whiskey is sold in the smaller 375ml bottles so the equivalent full bottle would net out at a dizzyingly spendy $70, which is even more than the Charbay Double & Twisted White Whiskey and double the price of Finger Lakes Distilling’s Glen Thunder Corn Whiskey.

Hudson New York Corn Whiskey Rating :
Solidly Recommended – Extremely skilled crafted whiskey, unique and flavorful but priced pretty high
