This was Tuthilltown's first whiskey and became the basis of their Hudson Baby Bourbon.  It's made from a mash of 100% corn.  This bottling is no longer in production, but Tuthilltown now makes a corn whiskey under the Hudson label.

The nose comes on sweet with a Tequila scent. I also smell grapes and that raw, sweet smell of unaged spirit.  The palate is smooth and slightly sweet, but a bit watery. Late in the palate there are citrus notes as well, which are common to very young whiskies. Then, on the finish, there's corn, buttered popcorn to be exact, very subtle but present nonetheless.  

 

There's good flavor in there, but I wish it were higher strength.
