My first Four Roses bourbon. It has 25-35% rye in the mash bill.
Nose: alcohol, sweet butterscotch, rich dried apricot, cooked apple note, spice notes, vanilla, oak and honey in the background. Cherries.
Taste: quick arrival, velvety mouth feel, black liquorice, sweet malty fruit, smooth rye spices kick in, wet tobacco.
Finish: medium to long, caramel and spicy finish, lightly bitter and dry with black liquorice notes and some mint, nice finish.
Conclusion: nice, i like it from the 1st tasting. An enjoyable bourbon, better than Knob Creek Small batch IMHO. At 45% ABV, it numbs my toungue. Would I buy it again? Yes
