  • Excerpt: From what I've seen, they are focused on making good things available for a reasonable price and I don't mean that in a bad way. Sometimes it is simply better to keep things straight forward instead of trying to be the next big thing.

  • Excerpt: The palate opens with rich helping of bread crust and caramel and ends with a strong ginger note, coating evenly from front to back. Good choice in a Manhattan.

  • Excerpt: My suggestion is the next time you need another rye to stock your bar, pick up a bottle of Wheel Horse Rye. You really can’t go wrong with rye at this price, especially when it’s this tasty!

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 with a 95% rye mashbill, this little number comes to us from OZ Tyler in conjunction with Latitude Beverage. A blend of 2 and 3 year rye, this is bottled at 50.5% ABV with no filtering. Let's dive in.

  • Nose:

    Honey, citrus zest, some clove. Orange peel.

  • Taste:

    A little young. Lots of sweet cream, caramel, a hint of pepper. Not super complex.

  • Finish:

    Short and a bit hot on the finish. No signs of youth or must Tons of promise here.

  • Overall:

    Impressed once again. I don’t love this as much the bourbon, but it’s starting in a great place.

  • Score:

    5
