Raided Score is a conversion from an external site's score, to our in house uniform scoring system. Please see the FAQ for more.

  • Intro:

    Sourced from distilleries in Indiana, Kentucky and Tennessee, this release features whiskey at the 6, 7, 10, 15 and 16 year old age range, that are all blended. As a result, the age statement reflects 6 Years, the youngest component, and features bottling at barrel proof.

  • Nose:

    Bold, buttery, toffee. Pure buttery popcorn, spice drops, candied nuts and a nice wafting oak scent.

  • Taste:

    Rich on the palate, loaded with honey and praline once more. Brown sugar, toffee, cookie batter, toasted almond and sweet oak. Great mouthfeel, proof seems placed well. Yum.

  • Finish:

    Long finish, hits all the right notes. Lingers on the palate, quite a bit of honey, leather, tobacco, bright butterscotch.

  • Overall:

    Delectable - a lighter profile that uses oak and a sweet, dessert character and texture to impress. These batches always raise questions with drinkers, particularly wondering whether batches are vibrantly different from release to release, and the answer is a resounding yes.

  • Score:

    7
