Drink Review: Hudson Baby Bourbon

Tuthilltown Distillery Half Bottle

A half-bottle of the splendidly-named Hudson Baby Bourbon – the first legal aged grain spirit to be produced in New York since Prohibition ended over 75 years ago. Unusually for bourbon, Hudson’s spirit is manufactured in a potstill at the Tuthilltown Gristmill (a heritage site) and is aged in small new oak casks.

Baby Bourbon Review:

The Hudson Baby Bourbon is a wonderfully complex whiskey: passionate, earthy, intense, and delicious. The floral notes in the opening, along with the honey-like notes in the finish, are all powerfully on the nose, but the palate is purely a savoury one. The Hudson Baby Bourbon is full and warm, and the entrance of an orange citrus note (and a very tantalising pinch of salt) suggest that this might be the most balanced and rounded bourbon in the Hudson family.

Since its beginnings in 1857, the Hudson family have been closely associated with New York City – particularly Manhattan, since the distillery is located on the western bank of the East River on the north side of 42nd Street. Various family members have had a hand in the distilling heritage of the Hudson Bay Company, one of the oldest privately-owned companies in America, and for this reason alone, Hudson Baby Bourbon is extremely appropriate for Manhattan, New York’s pre-eminent metropolis.

Baby Bourbon – a fitting and impressive name for a whiskey which brings a hint of the marvellous city to you.

The floral notes in the opening, along with the honey-like notes in the finish, are all powerfully on the nose, but the palate is purely a savoury one. The Hudson Baby Bourbon is full and warm, for a first impression its a bit too tightly controlled, but once the spices and honey begin to emerge, it becomes a much more pleasant whiskey. Hudson Baby Bourbon – an interesting and interesting drop, with some tangy sweetness in the mix. Hudson Baby Bourbon is a very pleasant whiskey, and it will be interesting to see if they make changes before another batch is bottled.

Review Hudson Baby Bourbon:

Tuthilltown Baby Bourbon is quite good. Very good. Not perfect – but very good. In its first 12 months on the market, it proves to be one of New York’s best whiskies. It’s got a nice balance, wheaty fruit and honey with more than a peck of spice. Its also very smooth. A big success.

Baby Bourbon – a beautifully simple, memorable and tasty blend, which is also quite unusual.
