  • Excerpt: This isn’t the most intricate design when it comes to a bourbon, but it is nice when a little water is added to it. I’d consider it a simple sipper.

  • Excerpt: This is drinking well, and the variety of ages are well represented and blended here. The bottling proof was an excellent choice (thank you for no dilution) and I’m a fan. At its price point, Stellum is hard to ignore. It’s worth a try.

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:

    Stellum Spirits is a new brand developed by the brains behind Barrell Craft Spirits. This is Stellum Bourbon - a blend of 4-16yr bourbon, comprised of mostly MGP, with a little undisclosed KY and TN distillate for taste. Bottled at barrel proof, in this case 57.49% ABV.

  • Nose:

    Bold on the nose - creamy with notes of pecan, tobacco, rich caramel and a touch of brown sugar. Some oak, the ethanol hides well.

  • Taste:

    Medium to rich mouthfeel. Ethanol hides once again. Rich brown sugar, a bit of toffee, clove, some oak to it. Creamy and sweet, a faint cocoa note.

  • Finish:

    Long finish. I like what’s coming together here - more oak, cocoa, some coffee, big bold maple and brown sugar notes, and a pepper presence.

  • Overall:

    This is drinking well, and the variety of ages are well represented and blended here. The bottling proof was an excellent choice (thank you for no dilution) and I’m a fan. At its price point, Stellum is hard to ignore. It’s worth a try.
