Review #1544 | Bourbon Review #665

Distiller: Four Roses

Bottler: Four Roses

Brand: Four Roses

Selection: Twin Liquors

ABV: 57.7% ABV

Age: 8 Years 7 Months

Nose: Waffle cone, herbal spice, big hint of pine and toffee.

Taste: Medium mouth feel, some heat, but it’s behaved. Little closed off, but then the toffee, cherry, graham cracker and tobacco.

Finish: Long, but powerfully ethanol forward – very hot. Loads of dessert and fruit spice here but the heat is sort of out of control.

Overall: Heat aside, this is really quite nice. The palate has lots of great flavors despite it not exploding with flavor,

Thanks for reading!
