Adirondack Applejack Cinnamon! (NY)
Hudson Valley Distillers started out small, but each month they seem to be expanding more and more. I fully expect the burgeoning distillery to control the bottom half of Columbia County before year's end! Their line of whiskies, their gin and their vodka, have all been stellar and well recieved.
Recently, they released a new little ditty! Adirondack Applejack Cinnamon!!! Hudson Valley makes an exceptional, bourbon like Applejack, like a big, baked apple covered in caramel!!!
Now, with this new one, it's almost like eating a big baked apple pie with a load of cinnamon. What I really like bout this new elixir is that while the Fireball whiskies of the world are super-heating their whiskies with cinnamon flavor, sometimes to the point of turning it into Lavoris (the long vanished mouthwash), this whisky has a oft apple flavor that is complimented by the cinnamon, not overpowered by it. It's made by a couple of couples, Tom and Chris, the partners, and their wives Jen and Jennifer (who are fantastic), has show mature, adult restraint, in adding jut enough so you notice it, but not so much that you can't cleanse your mouth of it.
A lovely, lovely dram!!!!!
