This expression uses the same recipe as the regular Four Roses Single Barrel, but is aged for 17 years. The nose has notes of cinnamon, cloves, and black pepper to go along with hints of vanilla and chocolate. The taste is thick and chewy, with a cherry sweetness and a hint of vanilla after the initial spicy blast fades. The finish is extremely long with a complex mix of pepper and vanilla notes. An outstanding whiskey!
