    I guess this Four Roses is from the early 1960's. Decent old-skool bourbon at a time that not all good FR stuff was exported to overseas markets.
    • Nose
      Juicy buttery oak intermingled with some delicate fruity notes of strawberries and glazed cherries. Cedar wood and dried flowers. Beeswaxed furniture and dusty polished leather. Old-fashioned bourbon nose which you don't come across in modern American whiskey.
    • Taste
      Now more on caramelized apples. Toffee and butterscotch. Brown sugar as well. Acacia honey and a little vanilla. Roasted chestnuts. Touch of milk chocolate at the background. Nice liquorice chewability.
    • Finish
      Medium long. Cinnamon. Some rye spiciness. Hints of mint and pine at the end. It's all very well balanced.
