Nose
High rye spiciness: allspice, Chinese five spice powder, intense camphor and bruised red fruits with sweet oak behind. Intense and captivating.
Palate
Peppermint to start with, alongside cherry throat lozenges. There's a genuine head-clearing quality to this. Pleasant dustiness starts mid-way, while behind some big citrus and cooked fruits are massing.
Finish
Spiced apple. Oak.
Comment
Great balance. Bold but with finesse. Very Four Roses in fact.

Nose
Sour fruit. Unripe plums, cranberries. Oak shines through. Old furniture. Cedar wood. A floral note. Parma violet.
Palate
Sweet then getting very crisp and dry. Somewhat abrasive. Turkish delight, crystallised violets. Rich oak. Very aromatic. An earthy hint.
Finish
Dry but with a sweet rice crispy note.
Comment
Elegant and rich.
