John
John,
Loved the caramel finish. Nice and smooth but maybe nothing speciall.
 
Christopher
Christopher,
Buttered popcorn flavours were overwhelming and the alcohol was not incorporated well at all. Very young, not my cup of tea but worked ok in a highball.
 
Joe
Joe,
I have no idea what the fascination with this distillery's bourbon is. Every bourbon I've tried from them is all corn. Makes a decent enough cocktail but it's a young, young, bourbon.
 
Alex
Alex,
Great strength to flavor ratio. A bit grassy tasting, which makes it unique amongst other bourbons in this price range, easy to tell on a taste test that it's Hudson.
 
Shawn
Shawn,
Unique toasted oats taste with smooth caramel finish. Small bottle for the price.
 
Bryan
Bryan,
Good smooth
 
Martin
Martin,
100% corn!!
 
Max
Max,
I live 1 mile from this distillery. What a shame! This is the worst whisky I have had the misfortune to try. "Rip your face off liquor." If you like a "bite" to your liquor, you get it in spades here. I do not. I pray that this improves as I prefer to "shop local". Also note" 350 ml rather than 750 ml bottle. Very expensive.
 
Patrick
Patrick,
Goes down smooth. Almost a bit too smooth. Lacks complexity. I'd drink it again, but not sure if I'd have another on my shelf.
 
Rok
Rok,
Top! best recommendations!
 
Elliot
Elliot,
It has a very interesting backstory and it’s certainly worth tasting, but I felt like one taste was enough.
 
Craig
Craig,
Strange initially, but tasty smooth finish
 
Giuseppe
Giuseppe,
I love this bottle of Whiskey, it’s smooth and I always make sure I have a bottle in my cabinet for all types of events!
 
Craig
Craig,
Really enjoyed this, smooth and sweet. No bite in the beginning, smooth finish.

Great all by itself
 
Donald
Donald,
Shared it with my good friend, what a wonderful surprise. You can definitely taste the vanilla with great undertones. I'll be purchasing more in the near future.
 
Tom
Tom,
Smells like corn and carmel, but taste is very grainy and harsh.
 
Joe
Joe,
Disappointed
 
Patrick
Patrick,
Great sipping. Sweet and spicy
 
Sunil
Sunil,
I think this might be my favorite whiskey ever. Bold, but not harsh. Sweet, but not cloying. Balanced on the front and back end. Amazing.
 
Wesley
Wesley,
I have tried this several times, and the primary tasting note is burnt rubber. Not one of my favorites.
 
Kelsey
Kelsey,
A sweet but not too sweet finish and would make excellent cocktails or on the rocks.
 
guest
guest,
Really liked the flavor. Little sweet and Carmel.
 
Tim
Tim,
100% corn so it has a unique flavor and taste. Mellow, sweet.
 
Jared
Jared,
Smooth excellent flavor throughout. At the price point I find some better options. However would never pass up a glass of Hudson baby.
 
Thomas
Thomas,
Sweet and smooth at first, underlying caramel, vanilla, maple notes, then smoky and spicy with a long, slightly burning yet pleasant finish. Not bad but overpriced in comparison.

Tried it in a bar. Nice vanila and caramel tones and quite smooth on the rocks.
 
Joel
Joel,
Smooth with a lot of carmel.
 
Hilary
Hilary,
I liked it. But yes, it is a Baby. Has so much potential. I would appreciate it more if it were aged a bit more, I think.
 
Michael
Michael,
Not great. Heavy cereal and overproofed (and overpriced). Good for cocktails.
 
Scot
Scot,
I drink mine with ice. I loved this. A little sweeter and has a bit of the oak, Carmel and such as you’d expect. I’m getting a little banana, as well. I’ll be getting this one, again!
 
guest
guest,
Popcorn, but in a very good way
 
Adam
Adam,
Decent mixing Bourbon.
 
Alex
Alex,
Strong on the corn, not a huge fan of the aftertaste.
 
Bradley
Bradley,
Unique process results in a unique and likeable flavor
 
Michael
Michael,
Tastes very young. If that's your thing, I can respect that.
 
Patrick
Patrick,
Particularly smooth and sweet. When I added a touch of water, the alcohol bite quieted down and was very good. I agree that the price is on the high end.
 
Timothy
Timothy,
Strange and sweet - not bad, but not for me
 
Stephen
Stephen,
Not as sweet as I anticipated. Actually had a bit of an herb-like taste.
 
Jon
Jon,
Would be a good mixing bourbon if it was cheap, but doesn't have enough going on to stand on it's own.
 
Joe
Joe,
Yes, it’s very sweet and very smooth and nothing like a ‘typical’ bourbon but I really enjoyed it. No burn at all, considering the slightly-elevated proof. My wife (non-whiskey drinker) even liked it. I’d definitely keep this on hand for a relaxed sip, but I think it’s just too expensive.
 
Sunni
Sunni,
Tastes very young and rushed to market. I enjoy a white dog (unaged whiskey) but not at this price point. Was not expecting the weak flavor and strong corn taste at $50-ish per bottle.
 
Jared
Jared,
If you like a sweeter taste to your bourbon, this is a go-to!
 
John
John,
Sweet up front and subtle bite throughout.
 
Theodore
Theodore,
Very sweet. My wife actually enjoyed it. It’s very easy to drink. Flavors just aren’t that I was hoping for. Very corn based. Nothing wrong with that. Just nothing amazing
 
Shannon
Shannon,
Not a fan
 
Daniel
Daniel,
Not a "typical" bourbon, in a good way. Strong finish, mellow taste with sweetness on the back. Warm, complex whiskey that rewards you.
 
Garison
Garison,
Pastry flavor.
 
Laura
Laura,
We enjoy this one because it is local, we stop by the distillery and tasting room once a year or so, and we have some nostalgia for it, but it is not as complex as some others we usually get. It is trying to be soft and sweet but hasn't quite gotten there and still is a bit harsh. We do love some of the small batch liquors they are trying, so I think they are perfecting their craft and will get better over time.
 
Gavin
Gavin,
The 100% corn mash bill hurts this whiskey. It’s sweet but will taste youthful and unfinished due to the lack of barley and wheat/rye. For the price, there are options that are worlds better. Pass on this one.
 
Michael
Michael,
OK sipper but tastes a little young...
Gavin
Gavin,
That won’t change with age. This has a 100% corn mash bill. I agree and for the price it’s a no go whiskey for me.
jonathan
jonathan,
This must be mixed as when I had it with 2 cubes I labored to finish my glass.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Nots of Carmel nice and smooth
 
Lucas
Lucas,
Just got this in my last tasting box and loved it! Will go get a bottle this week.
 
Brian
Brian,
Too much of a corn note for my taste
 
Ian
Ian,
Hints of cinnamon, dark fruit, and malty flavors. A well balanced whiskey that I like a lot.
 
Jeanne
Jeanne,
It's okay. Smooth, but too sweet / corn forward for me.
 
Donald
Donald,
Starts as butterscotch finishes as melted plastic. One star might be too much
 
Danny
Danny,
High corn flavor not much to my liking. Finish too flowery for me. Like bourbons that make a statement. This one not saying much.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Exceedingly too much corn and completely unaged.
 
Sky
Sky,
Nice sipping bourbon. You can taste the corn and has a sweet finish. Would drink again
 
Leslie
Leslie,
This bourbon is really awesome. Delicate flavor, delicious
 
Allen
Allen,
I don't get it--this has come reliably recommended to me, gets good ratings, etc. But each time I try it, I just taste a metallic, immature (Baby?), off-putting wannabe. The rest of the bottle sits on my shelf, waiting to be mixed or shared with guests who may like it.
 
Lisa
Lisa,
On the nose, caramel, sweet corn, vanilla. One of the sweeter whiskeys I've tried. It is thicker on the tongue than most. Slight hug at the end. Very friendly.
 
David
David,
just ok
 
Mark
Mark,
Do not like
 
Kendra
Kendra,
Love it
 
Jeremy
Jeremy,
Not smoky. Not sure why people would think that. Good $40 bottle.
 
Stephen
Stephen,
Smooth, with a bit of a bite. Great on the rocks.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Thought it would taste better
 
Jack
Jack,
could maybe be a little sweeter. as it is, great body with a less than perfect finish
 
Debrenee
Debrenee,
For being aged in under 24 months, I think this is pretty good. Not as intense of a flavor as other well aged bourbons, but it’s price reflects that. Nevertheless, I wouldn’t mind having this on my shelf. Glad I got to try it!
 
Nelo
Nelo,
An ideal whiskey for the beginner whiskey connoisseur.
 
Peter
Peter,
I'll give it a five. His doesn't live up to the reviews. Maybe I got a bad batch. I got this because I read it was sweet. It's NOT! Very musty..maybe see corn husks fell in this one? I'd only buy it again in hopes of getting a better batch.
 
William
William,
This is definitely for the fans of smoky. It's not as sweet or mild as I had hoped.
 
Kristen
Kristen,
Love the sweetness and Smokey flavor
 
guest
guest,
Still new to tasting different whiskeys and developing my palate. Can definitely agree with the app that this has sweet and corn notes with a caramel aftertaste. Average ruggedness for what I’ve tasted so far
 
Ross
Ross,
Smokey flavor, goes down nice. A little too burnt for my liking.
 
Bianca
Bianca,
Earthy but sweet and sippable. A winner in my books!
 
Lindsay
Lindsay,
SWEET CHAR, SPICY BURN FINISH. EASY SIPPER
 
Johnny
Johnny,
I was surprised at the difference in flavor and profile and can appreciate that but I wasn’t impressed.
 
Robert
Robert,
I never spoke with anyone who liked it and after trying it myself, I have to agree.Not my style of bourbon.
 
Ann
Ann,
Our tasting party had four members and they all agreed this Bourbon was the best. The sweet start and warm finish had everyone fighting to finish the glass.
 
Robert
Robert,
Bit of a burn, covered in spice
 
Simone
Simone,
Liked it more as I drank it more.
 
Corey
Corey,
Not for me. High corn alcohol flavor.
 
Bret
Bret,
Sweet up front with a little bit of spice to finish. Just didn't have as complex a flavor or finish as the other 2 out of the Off the Bourbon Trail box.
 
Lukas
Lukas,
Smooth!
 
Jeff
Jeff,
Overall a light spice bourbon. The nose was nice , but flavor on the needs a little more barrel time . Light heat in the finish . A mixer
 
Michael
Michael,
Love this
 
Laura
Laura,
Smooth. I liked it.
 
Craig
Craig,
This is a good Bourbon, but I didn't find it exceptional in any way. It tastes like several other good small batch bourbons I've tasted.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
I liked it. I was rough at first and then finished smooth. Which I liked.
 
Deja
Deja,
Unique flavor. I like it.
 
Katherine
Katherine,
Complex. Smooth. Delightful
