The nose is pretty decent with some brandy like sweetness and some solid rye spice. It actually smells like it has some age on it. The palate is also nice and spicy with some wood notes and a nice sweet, caramel note at the end. The finish retains that sweetness and again gives some brandy type notes.

 

Despite the four year age statement, this tastes much older than four years; it has that rich, caramel flavor that I've seen in older bourbons from the '70s. I'm guessing this one is a glut whiskey, filled with older stocks that the distilleries didn't know what to do with back when bourbon supplies far outstripped demand.
