  • Excerpt: It has plenty of spice and balancing sweetness to give it the kind of kick you look for in a rye but smoothes out into a something you want to drink over and over with the sweetness.

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 rye released under the Colonel EH Taylor line. This is also released as a Bottled in Bond product.

  • Nose:

    Molasses. Caramel and vanilla followed by some light rye spice. This nose is surprisingly large and full bodied.

  • Taste:

    Sugar and spice combo, lots of nougat and caramel sweetness with brown sugar on the side. The spice kicks in after and blends really well.

  • Finish:

    Shorter than the single barrel but also less hot. Its still fairly hot but its delicious sugar bomb. Long and sweet.

  • Overall:

    This is definitely a barely legal rye given the uncharacteristic sweetness. It drinks more like a bourbon. Its not a bad thing, its just interesting.

  • Score:

    6
