  • Excerpt: Easy, light and slightly astringent, it is pleasant enough but without the sort of robust backbone current whiskey drinkers seek.

  • Excerpt: The tone feels gimmicky, and uninspired, not to mention slightly intentionally obscure.

  • Excerpt: Not really too impressive, this is clearly young and should have spent more time aging before blending - since it's clear that not even a blend could cover some of the flaws here.

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:

    Distilled by a variety of producers and blended in Michigan, this release from Three Chord promises a "harmony of flavor, structure & finish" and comes to us from Batch 007 at an ABV of 40.5%.

  • Nose:

    Sweet, musty, young and funky. The youth is unmistakable and there's a bit of grain here too. Caramel, grass, cream and lemon.

  • Taste:

    Sweet on the palate, but thin on mouthfeel. No apparent ethanol on the pale, but it's light on flavor as well. Malty, some cream, lemon, pear.

  • Finish:

    Short finish. Pepper, caramel, cream and some honey.

  • Overall:

    Not really too impressive, this is clearly young and should have spent more time aging before blending - since it's clear that not even a blend could cover some of the flaws here.

  • Score:

    3
