  • Excerpt: The finish has notes of butterscotch and vanilla with just a hint of oak. It’s a little harsher than current whiskies, but still represents the period well — and is worth trying for that reason alone.

  • Excerpt: The body is thick, burly, and racy, a frontier style whiskey that makes no bones about its brash, in-your-face character.

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 an anniversary bottling of Early Times American whiskey. It is quite vocally noted to be distilled at DSP-354 (Brown Forman) and it is bottled at 50% ABV.

  • Nose:

    Sweet honey, caramel, cotton candy. Clover, grassiness, toffee and confectioners sugar. Banana candy and light, faintly floral essence.

  • Taste:

    Medium mouthfeel, sweet toffee, confectioners sugar. Faint pepper, surprisingly oaky, and overall a very sweet dram.

  • Finish:

    Medium length, grassy essence returns, lots of toffee and sweet caramel.

  • Overall:

    This was really shockingly enjoyable. It is perhaps a bit too sweet, but still very enjoyable nonetheless.

  • Score:

    6
