Four Roses Small Batch Limited Edition Al Young's 50th Anniversary (2017 Release), 54.49%

Price: $150 Issue: Summer 2017 Reviewer: Fred Minnick

A caramel-laden fruit bouquet, followed by unending vanilla, leather, tobacco, cotton candy, marshmallow, quince, cinnamon, hints of juniper, and wildflowers. Then, brown sugar butter and maple syrup over buttermilk pancakes, Cracker Jack, raw honey, bittersweet chocolate, and hints of pecan shell. Extremely long finish with a fried apple pie note. An incredibly complex and intense, must-have sipper. Perfection.
