Read Full Review Raided Score: 77 Publication: The Whiskey Wash Excerpt: While it’s not an exceptionally complex bourbon, for a daily drinker under $15, this would be great as a mixer or on ice. Read Full Review Raided Score: 84 Publication: Whisky Advocate Excerpt: Although not complex nor with a strong finish, it’s perfectly balanced by intense notes. Perfect for cocktails or table whiskey.

Produced by an Undisclosed distiller for Lux Row, this bourbon is a release under their brand umbrella, sporting no age statement and a 45% ABV bottling strength.
Fresh and fruit forward, with some vanilla to keep things interesting. Young apple, some pear.
Sweet cream, fresh honey. A bit of oak and pepper. Surprising oak character here as well. Cocoa and some caramel. Surprising complexity.
A bit young on the finish, but showing far more complexity than I’d have expected. Plenty of oak, caramel, spice and light pepper.
A surprising bottle that may just be a bottom shelf gem. Great complexity for what I perceive as a fairly young bottling, with some great flavor along for the ride as well.
