  • Publication: Breaking Bourbon
  • Excerpt: Although the bourbon is light on complexity, which is the only thing that gives away the bourbon’s age, its overall drinkability ends the bourbon on a high note.

  • Excerpt: This spirit may not be for everyone, but those who enjoy high-rye spirits may be a fan. At a very fair price of $30, this one is worth picking up.

  • Excerpt: Young but plenty of potential. I like what's happening here, and look forward to seeing what their line tastes like with a couple extra years of age on there.

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:

    This bourbon whiskey comes to us from Tennessee, distilled at B.R. Distilling. Produced using a mashbill of 70/21/9, this 20 barrel batch of bourbon is at least 3 years old. It is bottled at 46.5% ABV and is not filtered. Let's get to it.

  • Nose:

    Brown sugar, toffee, light oak presence, hint of youth but nothing egregious.

  • Taste:

    Thin on the palate, no heat. Brown sugar, hint of toffee. Light pepper. Not super complex, but what's there is pleasant.

  • Finish:

    Short to medium finish. Honey, pecan, fresh biscuits

  • Overall:

    Young but plenty of potential. I like what's happening here, and look forward to seeing what their line tastes like with a couple extra years of age on there.

  • Score:

    5
