  • Excerpt: The best high-proof whiskeys are actually quite smooth; this needs water to find its sweet spot.

  • Excerpt: The palate sees more of that molasses, a slightly tannic grip in the form of cloves and a bit of petrol, with less sweetness overall, particularly on the slightly curt finish.

  • Excerpt: Here, there's plenty of alcohol wallop, but the flavor is thin, showing just a bit of almond and cinnamon.

  • Excerpt: I think the nose was the best part. I enjoyed the other parts but they were pretty astringent and thin, all things considered. That said, I've had far worse on this journey.

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 is a sourced whiskey that is aged in ex-bourbon barrels, hence the American Whiskey designation, rather than a bourbon designation.

  • Nose:

    Caramel, passion fruit. Honey, vanilla, waffle cone. Spirit-y, but not punishing. Some banana. Some oak.

  • Taste:

    Medium mouth feel. Shockingly light, not a ton of heat. Vanilla, cream, faint oak, pepper. Burnt plastic, astringency. Some fruits.

  • Finish:

    Medium length, but very hot. Bananas foster, vitamins, oak, pepper, cream.

  • Overall:

    I think the nose was the best part. I enjoyed the other parts but they were pretty astringent and thin, all things considered. That said, I've had far worse on this journey.
