World's First Solera Aged Bourbon. "Solera" - a stack of barrels where a small portion of whiskey is removed periodically and new whiskey is added. No barrel is every fully emptied, and age and complexity gradually increase over time. Hillrock marries small barrel-aged Hillrock Estate Bourbon with mature seed bourbon before finishing in 20 year-old Oloroso Sherry casks to balance flavors and add layers of complexity...Current average age of the Hillrock Solera Bourbon is over 6 years and the rye content is approximately 37%.

Wine EnthusiastFrom 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.
