Member Ratings and Notes
Sku
 

Nose is sort of yeasty with wood notes.

 

Palate has rye, some bitter, medicinal notes,

 

Finish is medicinal at first but then trails off into some nice candy notes.

 

Overall: The bitterness really dominates the middle section which throws it out of balance. Four Roses has a way of straddling medicinal/bitter notes, sometimes wonderfully and sometime going just a bit over the line.  This one's just over the line.
