Four Roses 12 year old 120th Anniversary (Barrel 7-1l), 55.4%

Price: $90 Issue: Fall 2008 Reviewer: John Hansell

Very creamy and gently sweet with a slightly oily texture. Notes of vanilla, toasted coconut, caramel, tropical fruit, honey-glazed almond, cocoa, and dusty corn. Well-balanced and soothing. A very easy-drinking whiskey. (Reviewer’s note: these are single barrel bottlings, and they will vary from one barrel to the next.)
