bottle TS 69 2B On opening bottle there is a strong floral violet scent with sweet honey and vanilla After ten minutes in glass no alcohol note present but cherry,vanilla and mild citrus and spice develop. My wife thinks I have gone mad as I can sit smelling this for up to an hour without taking a drink. Taste, sweet on entry mid palate citrus and cherry carry through from nose and spices start to settle over top balancing the sweet with pepper and cloves. Long finish without any alcohol burn with spices giving the warmth. The smell of flowers still present 5 minutes after the last sip.

I am sure this will not be for everyone but I love this bourbon, little experience with tasting and first review but hope to progress as my limited scope expands.

Lifted this 2 points the nose has faded from floral to caramel and vanilla toffee with flowers in the back. The palate has developed with cherry and a stronger spice development and the finish is beautifully balanced sweet oak with a hint of star anise. The bottle has been open for 2 months half full.

Four Roses has been doing a lot of things very right for the last several years.
