Hudson Manhattan Rye Bottling Note

Thanks to Tuthilltown Spirits, we can once again enjoy whiskey from New York, with this one in particular harking back to the pre-prohibition age of whiskey distillation in and around The Big Apple.

Ponder for a moment the earliest Manhattan cocktails being mixed up using rye whiskey. Now think about New York rye whiskey being a 'thing' back then. That.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Honey'd cereal, baked strawberry and a dusting of cinnamon.

Palate: Cedar, vanilla pod earthiness, a core of juicy apricot.

Finish: Peppercorn, polished oak and green apple.

Hudson Manhattan Rye (35cl) Reviews

A great drop!

Surprising whiskey. Enjoyed it more than I thought I would. The nose on the whiskey cannot prepare you for the intensity and complexity of the taste on the palate. Smooth and syrupy on the palate. There's sweetness, combined with vanilla, cinnamon, a bite of pepper and Oak. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

A rye to die for!

Fantastic rye, my absolute favorite for both sipping and in a Manhattan (mix with Carpana Antica Formula and it’s unparalleled!). However, I understand the divided reviews, it is a harsh rye that really bites and it’s thus very much an acquired taste.

Nail bar bathtub brew

Very harsh. Notes of Paint stripper and nail polish. A mixing whiskey, not to be enjoyed on its own.

Love this whisky with ice

This is one of my favourite whiskeys ,loved it when I was in New York a few weeks ago, shame that it’s a bit pricey,but I’ve nearly finished my bottle,so now ordering another.

Overall disappointing. Bit harsh and opening the bottle was a mission in itself. you can get considerably better for less

Save yourself the pain and bye a bottle of Sazerac Rye

Bought a sample of this to try and it was absolute dishwater. I am sure it appeals to some people but even at £20 a bottle i would not buy.

31st August 2018

One of my favorites

i love this whisky smooth but with a full flavor

A rye to be proud of.

My wife has just found me a bottle for £12.99! Normally I like a Isle, full of peat and smoke, so this shouldn't be my thing. However I like it. I can taste coconut, which is nice. And the full flavour lingers on the pallet for a long time. Would I pay £30? Maybe not, but is it better than £12.99? Yes.

Good but too expensive

Very sharp but also interesting teste.
So, to be honest, I like it but it is too pricey for the quality it offers in my opinion.

12th February 2018

Bites like a rabid dog

The previous reviewer is 100% correct. This is a very expensive and young rye. Neither the smell nor its taste is attractive. It has a very aggressive bite and is simply not enjoyable. Even if this were USD $20 per bottle, I still don't know if I'd recommend or purchase.

4th February 2018

So so, young and expensive.

Quite rough on the edge. Really tastes young and is not very enjoyable on its own. The smell of nail polish remover covers the spiciness of it.
The spices are quite present in taste along with some vanilla but the feeling of new make is too persistent.
The final falls quite short and a feeling of oak taste that has been added (due to fast aging?).
It's easy to find way better for two third of the price, not mentioning the quantity. Can't stend the comparison with Rittenhouse 100 proof or Mitcher's Single Barel rye.

18th January 2018


furniture polish and shoe rack aromas followed by similar taste. Fortunately only a 3cl sample so tipped it away with no guilty feelings.

22nd December 2017


Was expecting something a little more refined for the price, its very rough, maybe its a little young, I don't know. Not a fan at all. May just have to try it in a Manhattan just to try and getter a better perspective of this rye spirit, this is possibly here its strength lies.

21st December 2017


had a snort for the first time mainly because i fell in love with New York last June loved it.

26th October 2017

You can find just as good if not better for cheaper.

Average whisky not worth the $50 price.

11th September 2017

Unbeatable in an Old Fashioned

On it's own it is slightly too rough to fully enjoy, however, as the basis of an Old Fashioned it is outstanding and I have yet to try a rye that is better in this instance. In a lucky position that I can acquire bottles discounted but can understand the apprehension with cost for little volume in return.

8th September 2017

Good but too expensive

I love rye whiskey and this is a good one, without being outstanding. The main problem is the price - at that price point, it puts the liquid in competition with some MUCH better products. I don't really get the price point at all if I'm honest. If I want cheap, Jim Beam rye is VERY good value for money. Mid-range, you can't beat Rittenhouse 100 and top-of-the-range, why would you not go for Sazerac 18yo?

9th March 2017

Grace and grass

Pricey sure. Herbaceous and great length. A sipping rye. A dash of water no ice releases the magick. I have made manhattans and old fashioneds with this and sure is great. But too much like polishing the silver with silver. Try it first. Excellent with smoked food and BBQ. I also like adding dash of bitters in the manner of pink gin.

11th February 2017

Nice rye, poor cork stopper

I enjoy the vanilla oak grain in this little no. Cork stopper fell to pieces on its first removal and on inspection the poor quality and total lach of any "craftsmanship"I am not surprised. I would never buy a second bottle @ uk prices.

26th April 2016

smooth pleasant and err Boring

Its nice to drink but its not as spicy or flavorsome as the hype made me believe it should be, it is smooth thou with very delicate woody notes (they are gone the minute you add water let alone a mixer). Pleasant but for the price i want a lot more woody vanillas and spice, basically way over priced in the uk
but then i mixed some with haven hills mellow corn and BANG the perfect bourbon

19th March 2016

Way too much hype

This rye is way to rough aroung the edges. Compared to Mitchners or Dickel it really rastes like moonshine

14th March 2016

Best Rye I've had

I got this for my birthday and I let it sit in my cabinet for awhile because I generally don't prefer rye's. I pulled it out to make a Manhattan and WOW it was the smoothest Manhattan I'd ever had. That led me to trying it neat and I must say it's amazing. Very sweet and smooth up front and then kicks in with a crazy good spice at end that hangs on. Do yourself a favor and splurge for this Rye.

29th January 2016

My favorite Rye so far

I love everything Tuthilltown puts out, especially their whiskeys under the Hudson name. The Manhattan Rye is my favorite Rye that I've had so far. Spicy, yet not hot. Mellow, yet flavorful. Lots of vanilla, caramel, and a little pepper. It's fantastic.

18th December 2015

we need the 75cl...

lovely levels of spice backed up by sweetness from the corn and barrel. ridiculously supple, sipping dram.
when we finally get the larger, cheaper bottlings over here i will drink litres of the stuff, but for now, little out of my budget...

16th December 2015

Fantastic, but pricey in the UK.

Took me a while to appreciate the nose. I get cut acrylic, polished wood, with an undertone of fermenting grass(?). An initial acidic bite on the tongue, with a fantastic oily texture. Fantastic depth of flavour. Spearmint and dark maple syrup to earmark a few from the below reviews.
If I get this at the US price, I'll definitely be purchasing more. A little pricey in the UK.

6th November 2015

Good but pricey

VERY good rye but, at such a high price, it makes a Manhattan prohibitively expensive for your average cocktail bar. Definitely one for the home collection though. Crazy good.

8th July 2015

Where have u been!

just had Manhattan up w HMR. WOW!! Very smooth and crisp..... will have bottle in house by next week!!!

14th June 2015

Just got our 6th bottle in at The Albion Winchester

Blind on blind with any other Rye Whisky this one destroys the playing field! Keep it going!please!!

5th September 2014


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.

8th February 2014


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.
