Member Ratings and Notes
Ries
 

n: nice golden oak, overbaked cornbread, mixed whole peppercorns. Oatmeal cookies and shellac. Classic bourbon profile on the sweeter side.

 

t: cracker jacks in a waxy box, with a nice balance between the wood influence and distillate. Gingerbread and orange bitters in the middle. Toffee, rye spice, and oak in the smooth finish.

Nose is meh. Some baking spices and usual four roses notes. With air gets a little sweet. Palate has a nice complex spice from start to finish. Creamy and rich (like all the good four roses), but not a show stopper. Texture was my favorite part, but this doesn't live up to the famous Small Batch releases. [12/6/15]

The nose has deep rich caramel with some orange rind and lots of oak. The palate opens with huge caramel, then oak, followed by some tannic notes. The finish picks up anise, rye and some medicinal notes. There is some astringency on the late palate, but it fades with air.
