What's in a name? Hudson Manhattan Rye whiskey is called whiskey because it's produced in America. Were it from Scotland it would be spelled Hudson Manhattan Rye whisky, rather than whiskey.
Seriously, great stuff. I have had many single malts, some very expensive, but nothing compares. I really love this stuff. I never thought a great whiskey could come from the colonies. Its like a mouth full of cinnamon and spearmint marshmallows with hints of smoke and wood. This is the only thing I look forward to when I visit the states.

Feisty, but not too bold. The funky rye spiciness is actually more powerful on the nose than in your mouth. Oily mouthfeel, but not too resinous. Lots of dessert-like flavors throughout the palate and finish, mostly maple, cinnamon and allspice. A nice dram, but so very overpriced! Try to buy this one in the USA if you can - it's less than USD$40 a bottle over there.
