Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
Upon decanting, Four Roses Bourbon greets the eye with a sumptuous amber hue, replete with golden undertones that reflect its rich corn base and aging process.
The olfactory experience of Four Roses Bourbon is multi-layered, with dominant notes of caramel and vanilla juxtaposed against subtler nuances of dried fruits and baking spices. A mild oaken undertone enriches the aroma, denoting the whiskey's time spent maturing in charred barrels.
The first sip unfurls a nuanced balance between sweetness and complexity. Rich caramel, custard-like vanilla, and a burst of floral notes are enriched by a subtle blend of clove and cinnamon. The bourbon’s high rye content (for a bourbon) adds a level of spiciness that contrasts elegantly with its sweeter elements.
The finish is notably long-lasting and warm, with a residual sweetness that fades into a mellow spice and oak profile. A final note of toasted almonds adds a sophisticated edge to the aftertaste.
Smooth and medium-bodied, Four Roses Bourbon offers a plush, almost velvety mouthfeel that complements its balanced flavor profile. The texture enhances the sipping experience, providing a harmonious canvas against which the whiskey's array of tastes can shine.
