Wheeler’s Raid Original Blend 01 is a sourced bourbon that aims to be in the 3-4 year old range. The company then finishes it with hand-selected double toasted American oak staves. This finishing process really pulls through in the delivery of intense sweet flavors. However, it has the opposite effect on the finish, pulling forward drier and earthy flavors to end the sip. Even with the finish not meshing with the rest of the sip, Original Blend 01 is an easy-sipping bourbon that will please those looking for a sweeter whiskey.

The bottle being reviewed is from Batch 3, Bottle Number 961.
