  • Excerpt: For now, this is an interesting release that’s worth its asking price, and proves its worth taking a risk on something that’s unproven.

  • Excerpt: If it sounds appealing and you miss it this time, keep an eye out for next year’s version. For me, I’m looking forward to seeing if anything has changed come 2018.

  • Excerpt: Weirdly sweet, floral and fruity, but not as the result of youth or poor production. It's very good, but you'll need to be in the mood for this to make your night.

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:

    Adding an extra grain into the mix, Colonel E.H Taylor Four Grain bourbon incorporates corn, wheat, rye and malted barley to produce a four grain mashbill for the annual release to the series. Said to be 12 years old, but not labeled on bottle with such an age statement, this release is still bottled in bond.

  • Nose:

    Sweet, fruity, malty and interesting. Vanilla bean, faint floral notes, lightly malty and a hint tannins keep this nose interesting all over.

  • Taste:

    Sweet, fruity and floral once more. Fun berry note, dry oak, light lavender character, kind of this fun orangsicle feel. Pretty sweet, lightly malty, faintly dry, fruity.

  • Finish:

    Short but pleasant finish. Pretty nice here though it's kind of funky. Malty, fruity, floral. Less sweet on the finish.

  • Overall:

    This is sort of all over the place but...it works. Weirdly sweet, floral and fruity, but not as the result of youth or poor production. It's very good, but you'll need to be in the mood for this to make your night.
