2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tap at brewery during GABF 2009, listed as Reilley’s Oak Whiskey Red.
Pours an aroma of weak, watered-down bottom-shelf whiskey with a body of deep amber. Flavor is raisin vomit (yes, raisins can puke) and bottom-shelf whiskey. Watery mouthfeel. Hopefully, Reilley killed himself.

UPDATED: OCT 9, 2013 This one just isn’t right. Nose is candied pecans, slight hints of bourbon, and odd funkiness with a bit of a hint of tartness. Taste follows the nose rather closely, slightly sweet and yet definitely off, tart and just kind of off in the finish. Not terrible or undrinkable, but certainly not good.
Thought maybe age would make it better. I was deadly wrong. Even worse.
