Hudson Baby Bourbon Bottling Note

Hudson Baby Bourbon is the first legal pot-still whiskey to be produced in New York since prohibition!

In the days before prohibition farm distillers could be found throughout the state of New York and Tuthilltown are doing their bit to put New York back on the whiskey map with this classic bourbon, full of caramel and sweet vanilla notes, it is made from 100% New York corn.

Aged in tiny 2 gallon barrels, the spirit is 'sonically matured' with the help of bass speakers that agitate the cask and the liquid! Each bottle is then hand-filled, waxed and numbered, without the use of carbon or chill filtration.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Robust vanilla, new oak warmth, popcorn and a lingering whiff of sugared almond.

Palate: Marzipan and candied ginger, with a thick layer of caramel on top. A touch of rye spiciness develops.

Finish: Chocolate peanuts, buttered corn-on-the-cob and a light glaze of honey.

Hudson Baby Bourbon (35cl) Reviews

Not even worth one star.

Terrible. Never again.

Crowd pleaser!

Not sure where all the negative reviews are coming from on this - found it to be sweet, rich, smooth and well rounded. Lacks a bit of complexity being 100 percent corn but I can see it going down well at my next bbq!

I bought a bottle (70cl) of this when it was on sale thinking I'd got myself a bargain. Boy was I wrong! The initial nose isn't too bad with a hint of sweetness, corn and weirdly Play-Doh! Then on the palette it's just awful, briny and like fermented corn. It actually tastes like they've bottled the Hudson River itself, and next to a sewage pipe. I'm open to most bourbons and have had some bad ones, but this one is definitely the worst. I even invited a few friends around for a second opinion and theirs was worse than mine. I'm not even sure this should carry the mantle of 'Bourbon' as it's made in New York. Anyway not for me, maybe back to the sewer from where it came.

Hudson Bay - stay away!

Its up there with Cooper's Craft and Clyde May's as the worst bourbon out there. Save your money

The smell isn't too bad and the initial taste is OK but the after burn is terrible. Am going to struggle to finish this dram!

Gut rot in a glass

Fiery in a bad way- could barely finish the glass - avoid

Not bad

Noticeable oakiness, big corn flavour and a nice bit of spice which was pleasant.
Had been dying to try it but not blown away which was disappointing.

Not fit for man or beast

They served it at a Blues Festival. It’s what I grew up known as rot-gut whisky. Thank God they used massive amounts of ice to lesson the harm it will due to your internal organs.

Moonshine Corn liquor not bourbon.

I tried this at a restaurant and was immediately dissapointed. Peaty and tasted more like a scotch/whiskey. Yuck. Was completely dissapointed when they charged $20 for the single pour

The One

Outstanding, I always come back to this One.

Me Either

I'm not a super seasoned bourbon sipper, but I was excited to try this due to the high corn content. I guess I don't have the developed nose and taste buds for this. I didn't detect vanilla, oak, popcorn or any of that. To me the smell and taste are completely overpowered by fermented corn (I guess because that is what it is). Wish I could have returned this.

Got it in the excellent Advent Calendar. Smells a bit nutty, not like any bourbon I've tried before. A smooth drink, if that's what you like. I prefer Blanton's, or Michter's (also in the calendar) for the same kind of money.

Will buy another bottle.

Like this. Very smooth, quite sharp but no burn which for me is a good thing. Received as part of the tasting set. Definitely on the short list to buy more.

29th December 2017

Not for me...

I know everyone has different ideas of what is good and to some this Bourbon is probably ok. My honest opinion after giving it a serious try is that it is not for me. In fact it is probably the worst bourbon I have had in quite some time. Total waste of 57.00, I wish I could return it for pretty much anything. It taste to me like a middle of the road homemade corn whisky that just came from the woods. I did taste a hint of vanilla which was all I found that was acceptable. Again, to each his own but it was just not for me. Sorry for the negative review.

28th November 2017

will keep buying

its my favorite of many tried

Rich sweet char , hot and young

Great rich colour , I like the idea that they play dubstep to the casks to vibrate them to improve maturation . Personally I would play the stranglers , JJ Burnel on bass would do the job . I find the flavour good with some sweetness from the corn , good cask char coming through . Yes it's got some warmth to it because it's young but all in all , it's pricey but it's real hand crafted stuff.

One step shy of gross. It's shtick is "young" and 100% corn. Well it taste of it. Rough, hot, unrefined. At this price point there's so much better.

26th February 2017


This bourbon surprised me with it's rich flavours
Warm mouthfeel
And spice on the finish
Would definitely like more!

Session dram

color: deep ruby amber
nose: sharp grain, some oak
palate: very gentle, sweet delivery. Oily texture. A hint of mint and licorice.
finish: clean
This is 100% corn whisky. There is no rye bite that is typical in a Kentucky bourbon. This is an easy drinking "session dram". I wish they put it in full bottles.
