Four Roses 12 year old Limited Edition Single Barrel (2011 Release), 50.9%

Price: $90 Issue: Summer 2011 Reviewer: John Hansell

Very floral and fragrant. Gently sweet, too: apple tart laced with cinnamon, pancakes drizzled with maple syrup. Well-defined oak and crisp, dry spice (cinnamon, anise, cocoa, nutmeg) balance the sweetness. An interesting whiskey: big in some ways, yet elegant in others
