Wine Enthusiast Review
Rated 96
From master distiller Dave Pickerell, this estate-grown, field-to-flask offering makes good use of oloroso Sherry barrels. Look for peach and vanilla aromas, bold raisin and brown sugar flavors and a gentle exit that just hints at Sherry. At nearly 93 proof, the alcohol makes its presence known, so add some water or vermouth if you must. Attractive and substantial squared bottle.

Hillrock Bourbon is the only Solera aged Bourbon in the market. It is made by Master distiller Dave Pickerell. Too many that would be enough to purchase this Bourbon. For those of you not in the "know," Dave Pickerell is the Master Distiller for Whistle Pig. Whistle Pig is considered one of the finer Bourbons and can cost over $500 a bottle. Now you're in the “know.” Hillrock is his personal brand of Bourbon.

So, what is a "Solera?" A solera is a stack of barrels where a small portion of whiskey is removed periodically and new whiskey is added. You never fully empty a barrel. This allows the whiskey to age and gain complexity.

The full-bodied palate opens with rich notes of brown sugar, molasses and toffee, followed by roasted corn, clove, cinnamon and a touch of spicy rye. Oloroso Sherry notes of walnut, fig and candied fruit merge with caramel and butterscotch on the long-balanced finish. Current average age of the Hillrock Solera Bourbon is over 6 years and is one of the most awarded American whiskeys available.

  1. Smooth bourbon

    Posted by DL Stepp on 22nd Aug 2018

    A nice, smooth bourbon. Slightly sweet with a little burn at the end, very easy sipping. I put a little ice in it and it really opened up the flavor.
