Four Roses Limited Edition Single Barrel (2013 Release), 60%

Price: $90 Issue: Fall 2013 Reviewer: John Hansell

Thirteen years old, but it shows its age nicely. It's peppered with complex dried spice notes (mint, cinnamon, ginger, vanilla),

yet it also has interwoven sweet notes (maple syrup, caramel, honey) to keep the whiskey from being too dry. Hints of dark chocolate and berried fruit add complexity. Dry, spicy, tobacco, and leather-tinged finish. Great complexity!
