  • Excerpt: As is, it delivers a nice above-average sipping bourbon. With a few more years of experience under their belt, the sky’s the limit for what may come from this Washington state distillery.

  • Excerpt: While I don’t find anything incredibly exciting about this expression, it’s beautifully done bourbon and one that deserves the awards it’s won.

  • Excerpt: Those big barrel influences are the star of the show, undoubtedly, but luckily there's some secondary flavors like spearmint, wintergreen, and oregano that show up on the finish of this oaky whiskey.

  • Excerpt: Unique from KY bourbon, and yet very enjoyable. This particular pour has a distinct nose that could be recalled anywhere (in a good way) but the palate is more in line with what one would expect from a classic bourbon.

  • Publication: Drinkhacker
  • Excerpt: It’s a bold whiskey that drinks a little bigger than its 90 proof but with a syrupy mouthfeel and generous, cinnamon-filled finish that isn’t nearly as drying as I would expect. Water is an all-around friend to this one, subduing the wood and enhancing the underlying flavors and aromas.

  • Excerpt: Not astounding, but for a NAS 45% release from a relatively new outfit (they started in 2010) this is hitting pretty 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 Woodinville Whiskey Company in Washington State, this bourbon whiskey comes to us devoid of an age statement but bottled at respectable 45% ABV.

  • Nose:

    Lots of cocoa, cream, caramel and malt on the nose. A bit young, but not too much. Kind of faint root beer note.

  • Taste:

    Thin on the palate. Sweet cream, caramel, vanilla bean and pepper. Light oak character. No real heat. Some toffee.

  • Finish:

    Medium finish. A bit more complex than expected here. Cocoa, toffee and that nice roasted malt character is back.

  • Overall:

    Not astounding, but for a NAS 45% release from a relatively new outfit (they started in 2010) this is hitting pretty well.

  • Score:

    5
