Whisky reviews for Hudson's Bay Best Procurable

3 users have left 3 reviews for this whisky. Average rating is 86.33 points.

  1. rdavek scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Not sure if this got much better in the bottle, or if it is just a testament to how much better whisky was 60+ years ago.  This stands head and shoulders above any moderately priced blend available today.
    • Nose
      Warm and fruity, light touches of lemon rind, hints of ripe yellow fruit and honey.
    • Taste
      Very creamy mouth feel. Starts with the ripe fruit and honey from the nose, warm cereal and lemon drops follow.  A nice light summery dram
    • Finish
      As the fruit fades the oak and spice wrap things up ending with a slightly tart dryness. The finish is longer and richer than I expected.

    Finally tried this today , not cheap but after thisother superb old Hudson's blend
    https://www.whiskybase.com/whiskies/whisky/117377/hudsons-bay-15-year-old
    I had to try this one.
    This is slightly older by about 5 -10 years and very similar profile wise but the bottle had been open a while but about 3/4 full so worth a punt.
    I did no notes but my second one for the American market, one of the best old blends out there for the money.

    A brown bottle with a warning embossed at the rear shoulder level regarding federal law forbidding the re-use of the bottle.  The label states that it is "The Governor and Company of Adventurers of England trading with Hudson Bay, incorporated 2nd May 1670".  Bottled by Hudson's Bay Company London, imported by Hudson's Bay Inc NY.
