  • Excerpt: While PX Sherry Cask finished bourbons can be over-the-top, Rabbit Hole manages to deliver a well-balanced experience that’s quite delicious. Dareringer is full of sweet fruit notes, but manages to hold to its bourbon base with flavors of caramel and oak weaving in and out.

  • Publication: Distiller
  • Excerpt: On the palate, full-bodied, moderately sweet and appealingly spicy, massively and dangerously quaffable. Its subtlety belies its strength, and it's a total winner.

  • Excerpt: Adding in a touch of water or ice cube really helps release the flavors of this finished bourbon. I wanted more of a finish but the minimal dryness allowed me to continue sipping.

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 Rabbit Hole in Kentucky and finished in PX Sherry casks, this finished bourbon release clocks in at 46.5% ABV with no age statement.

  • Nose:

    Jammy and sweet on the nose, plenty of cocoa, clove and caramel to keep things balanced.

  • Taste:

    Medium mouthfeel, some caramel, praline and plenty of juicy fruits. Cherry, blackberry, currant and a hint of peach, the PX is clear to find in the palate.

  • Finish:

    Medium length finish, no heat, more PX goodness. Caramel, praline, jammy sweetness on the finish once more.

  • Overall:

    With one caveat - you need to have a little bit of a sweet tooth - Rabbit Hole’s Dareringer is a well composed sherry finished bourbon. It’s not too sweet, it’s not artificial, and it manages the difficult job of balancing PX quite well.
