Tasting Notes Of Four Roses 100 Proof
A balanced, rich, fruity nose. Notes of spices and chocolate. Toffee and vanilla. I’m greeted with an incredibly delicate and light nose. A bouquet of soft scents consisting of cork, dried raisins, vanilla, and fresh picked flowers . Also a very small amount of alcohol is detected upon first whiff. It’s a nice but incredibly subtle nose.
Tart stone fruits, prunes, spices, morello cherries, cocoa and vanilla. Wow, the palate is not what I expected after such a subtle nose. The most apt description is “Flavor Burst.” Upfront I’m greeted with a heavy dose of rye spice immediately followed by honey, peaches, and subtle hints of brown sugar and light oak. The palate isn’t deep as much as immediate, since you’re bombarded with all of the flavors at once. It coats your tongue ensuring you get a healthy dose of flavor with each sip
Oak, chocolate, butterscotch. his bourbon delivers a long, lingering finish, which has the exact opposite spice effect of the palate. With the palate, you’re greeted with spice upfront, quickly followed by a blast of flavors. With the finish, you’re initially greeted with very little spice, however that changes as my mouth is slowly filled with a delicious spicy heat over a minute or two. This spicy heat then takes another minute to slowly dissipate from my taste buds.
