  • Excerpt: It’s not the best bourbon ever produced, but it is a really great example of what a bottled in bond single barrel bourbon is capable of becoming.

  • Publication: Whisky Advocate
  • Excerpt: Starts off sweet (rummy, burnt dark fruit, fig cake) then becomes dry, with dried spice, tobacco, toasted oak, and leather. Very exciting and distinctive.

  • Publication: Drinkhacker
  • Excerpt: Savory and thick, it’s a bit of a bruiser, so full of flavor that you don’t notice the heat until the finish starts to fade, and it punches you in the stomach.

  • Publication: Whiskey Consensus
  • Excerpt: The problem is that it is extremely hard to find and a lot of times gets marked up by retailers. I would say that if you can find this close to retail to definitely give it a shot.

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 single barrel offering from the same line as the Colonel E.H.Taylor Small Batch. It is also bottled in bond. It is important to note that, like Eagle Rare 10, no real barrel information is given.

  • Nose:

    Vanilla, some corn and woodiness, followed by lots of sugary sweet.

  • Taste:

    Vanilla, buttery nougat and some minor spice.

  • Finish:

    Long, spicier than I expected, complex and well blended. Some more vanilla, a little more sweetness and a gentle departure.

  • Overall:

    I want some more of it but its hard to find and expensive in these parts. I think Ill hold off for now, but it is a pleasant and enjoyable dram even if its not wildly complex.

  • Score:

    6
