Description

This coveted 2016 release from Four Roses is a masterpiece of blending, showcasing the unique character of their various bourbon recipes. Bottled uncut at barrel strength, it packs a powerful punch (around 55.6% ABV) that’s sure to tantalize bourbon aficionados.

Aroma

The first whiff takes you on a journey. There’s a burst of fresh, orchard fruits like crisp green apples and sweet cherries, intertwined with the richer notes of ripe apricot. A subtle spiciness, characteristic of the rye grain used in some of the recipes, peeks through, adding complexity. Don’t be surprised to pick up hints of black tea leaves and a touch of baking spices like cinnamon and nutmeg for a truly inviting aroma.

Palate

The initial wave on the tongue might surprise you. While Four Roses is known for its fruit-forward character, this limited edition leads with a rye influence.  Expect flavors of cherry licorice and star anise, followed by a wave of warming cinnamon and citrus zest. As the rye spice subsides, the promised fruit notes emerge – think sweet rhubarb and a decadent caramel that coats the palate. Subtle hints of mint and aged oak add further complexity, creating a truly layered experience.

Finish

The finish is long and satisfying, a testament to the careful aging process. Lingering notes of honey and a hint of cool mint create a delightful conclusion that leaves you wanting another sip.
