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:

    Produced by harnessing science to extract extra bourbon absorbed into the barrel wood, Devils Cut is deemed the antithesis so the Angel's Share - alcohol lost to evaporation over aging.

  • Nose:

    Char, pepper, spicy. Hot, whew.A bit of ethanol on the nose. Peanuts and pepper.

  • Taste:

    Thin on the palate, but honestly not bad. Toffee, a hint of pepper. Sweet butter cream. Char.

  • Finish:

    Short finish, a bit hot, some peanuts, caramel and pepper.

  • Overall:

    I’ll take this over Beam White or XA any day. Honestly not bad stuff at all.
