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:

    This is a Total Wine house brand that is sourced from TerrePURE in the Carolinas - a company that "hyper ages" distills products by attempting to age them faster than conventionally possible using a proprietary method. They claim that this process will revolutionize the industry by providing producers with products that are comparable to well aged bourbons and ryes, in just a fraction of that time. Let's see how it is.

  • Nose:

    Musty, caramel, pepper, clove, cardboard, still fake and sweet

  • Taste:

    Oats, musty, clove, caramel, some body

  • Finish:

    Short, very hot, musty and fake, caramel

  • Overall:

    For the love of God, pass on Winchester.
