  • Excerpt: The finish is warm (as you’d expect from a 100 proof whiskey), but easier than you’d think. Lovely wood tones and flamed orange peel round it out. Probably the best Taylor of the three bottlings released so far.

  • Excerpt: Tornado Surviving is a great pour, and a damn good bourbon. Novelty aside, the quality is there and this drinks really nicely.

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:

    When a Tornado tore through Buffalo Trace's campus, a handful of warehouses lost their roof and some wall material. As a result, a handful of barrels were left to bake in the sun and brave the elements while the buildings were repaired, no doubt influencing their contents.

  • Nose:

    Caramel, praline, clove, honey and pepper. Spicy and dessert forward, faintly fruity with some melon notes, some peach, some apple, scattered in.

  • Taste:

    Moderate mouth feel, some heat, but well placed on the proof. Sweet cream, honey, apples and peach, pepper and dry oak. Pretty bold set of flavors with a great undercurrent of fruit to keep the profile interesting.

  • Finish:

    Short to medium finish. Sweet cream, light peach, caramel. Toffee drizzle and a bit of pepper, tobacco and clove.

  • Overall:

    Tornado Surviving is a great pour, and a damn good bourbon. Novelty aside, the quality is there and this drinks really nicely.

  • Score:

    7
