Top reviews for Hillrock Solera Aged Bourbon Whiskey:

— Such a smooth Bourbon! Butterscotch and Vanilla are dominant flavors. Better buy a 2nd bottle because the first one won't last long. 10/10 would recommend!

— Loved it, shared it with some friends neat and couldn't believe the flavor. 4 of us did a blind taste test against some Blantons I also bought from you and Hillrock came out on top.

— One of my new favorites. Very smooth!

Excellent pour.
 
Gerard
Gerard,
Loved this stuff that I picked up while taking a tour at their distillery. Smooth but still complex has nice spice balanced out from the aging in sherry casks. Definitely worth the money.

Great complexity, very smooth. Initial notes of butterscotch and vanilla, finishes with a spicy taste but without the burn.
 
Dan

Sweet, smooth, good complexity. I had high expectations for this solera bourbon whiskey based off the reviews from and I was still pleasantly surprised
 
Rory
Rory,
Smooth, easy drinker with flavors of vanilla and dried dark fruit. Delicious.
 
Brian
Brian,
Well balanced and smooth. Good nose and flavor profile. Easy to enjoy neat. The flavors really come out if you put it over ice. Once you finish your first glass you'll definitely want another so you might as well order another bottle because the one you're drinking will disappear.
 
Scott
Scott,
Balanced, spicy, with great oaky flavor.
 
Tyler

Very complex and nuanced flavors, absolutely delicious. The absolute hit of a recent neighborhood (socially distanced) tasting.

I really enjoy this Whiskey. Has quickly become one of my favorites for sipping. I haven't tried it in cocktails yet but not sure I am going to considering how smooth this whiskey is straight and OTR.

Wow, I was blown away by the complex flavor and smooth finish. I did a tasting with a friend of several expensive bottles of whisky / scotch and this bottle was among the top choices.

Great!! A bit of bite, complex, full palate that isn't overbearing in any way. Great neat, wouldn't want to mix.
 
Jim

Good whiskey that’s fairly smooth and not very spicy, but be prepared...it’s realllly sweet. As long as you like sweet whiskeys, this is a good one.

Tim
Tim,
I enjoyed this bourbon, but I didn't taste anything that made it worth the price - I've had equally as good bourbons for half the price.
 
Julie
Julie,
A bit of a bite at first, but the more you sip, the more the deeper, sweeter flavors come through. A lingering finish ending with earthy notes of wood, walnuts, and spice. A very complex and truly enjoyable bourbon.

Great Choice neat or one rock. Sm. Good finish and caramel notes. Very smooth and easy sipping.
 
Jeremy
Jeremy,
Very strong flavor up front. Smooth profound caramel, vanilla oak sweetness followed by a strong spice/cinnamon kick. Some bitterness on the back end that rounds it out. Quite complex and one of the most flavor forward bourbons I've had in a while.

Great Bourbon. Very smooth and sweet. Was a little leery about buying a Bourbon made in Yankee land, but I wasn’t disappointed.

Ever since I discovered Hillrock, it has been one of my favorites. This most recent order was the 3rd I've purchased. Great neat or on a rock, as others have said it's very smooth. I just wish it wasn't so expensive!
