Raided Score: 76 Publication: SpiritSurveyor Excerpt: This is really nice in a classic bourbon way. A touch on the sweet side, but a good range of fruit, caramel, and oak. Read Full Review Raided Score: 90 Publication: WhiskyCast Excerpt: The taste is spicy, but still sweet with black peppercorns, allspice, honey, vanilla, molasses, brown sugar, and caramel candy. The finish is very long with lingering spices and a good underlying sweetness.

Read Full Review Raided Score: 82 Publication: Wine Enthusiast Excerpt: Palate entry is crisp, prickly; by midpalate, the flavor highlights the toasty barrel char as tastes of maple, vanilla bean and dark caramel dominate this stage. Ends fiery, grainy, but lean. Read Full Review Raided Score: 88 Publication: Whiskey Raiders Excerpt: Great nose and palate with a slightly disappointing finish, but nothing tragic.

This is a standard bottled in bond product produced by Heaven Hill
Very sweet, mildly fruity and loaded with vanilla and molasses.
There's some cinnamon and wood spice, followed by vanilla and a thicker buttery mouth feel. Good balance of sweet and spice, although the spice is much less prominent.
Medium to short with some mild heat. Its pretty well balanced though. Maybe a little young, but not offensively so.
In the end, this isn't half bad. Great nose and palate with a slightly disappointing finish, but nothing tragic.
