  • Excerpt: It's a solid bourbon with a very respectable 101-proof bottling, and although it's a bit young, it portends good things to come.

  • Excerpt: I think a few fruit notes could have balanced this pour a touch more, but I’m not upset with that. At about $30, when I want a caramel bomb to sip on this is the bottle I’ll be grabbing.

  • Excerpt: For a bourbon this young, this is seriously impressive. Well on it’s way to becoming something very solid while already performing well.

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 OZ Tyler, this bottling is the joint work of the distillery and Latitude Beverage. Containing a blend of 2-4 year bourbon, I'm pleased it's bottled at 50.5% ABV with no filtering. There's rumors of a single barrel program on the horizon as well. Curious.

  • Nose:

    Not super complex on the nose, but there’s some brown sugar, a hint of toffee. Light graham cracker.

  • Taste:

    Sweet on the palate - almond, brown sugar, some sweet oak. Lacking youthful must or weird young notes which is great. Impressive oak character as well.

  • Finish:

    Short finish, but plenty of caramel, some toffee, clove and pepper.

  • Overall:

    For a bourbon this young, this is seriously impressive. Well on it’s way to becoming something very solid while already performing well.

  • Score:

    6
