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 a well-proofed wheater from Buffalo Trace in the Weller lineup. Ive reviewed it before, but its been a few years and my palate has grown since then.

  • Nose:

    Sweet cream, caramel, big red gum, cracked pepper, maple sweetness.

  • Taste:

    Medium mouth feel, some heat. Sweet and cinnamon heavy. Vanilla butter cream, pepper, allspice. Theres more heat than Id like.

  • Finish:

    Medium length, more heat. Cinnamon, pepper, spices and caramel sweetness.

  • Overall:

    Overall, this is just fine. Its not great, its not terrible. Its incredibly overrated on the social media outlets of the world, though. Thankfully there are other great choices when this is not available for those who like it, but I wouldn't stress, either.
