Color: Orangeish Copper

Nose: Cinnamon, the high rye presence makes itself known. Oak, touches of vanilla.

Taste: Peppermint, Cracked peppercorns, and cinnamon demonstrate the rye presence. Carmel, butterscotch and sweet corn give it a sweeter second half.

Finish: Spicy and lingering. Nutmeg and Coffee. Quiet a dry finish.

Overall: Complex and spicy is the Four Roses consensus and I would have to agree. A great high proof, high rye bourbon.
