Four Roses

Four Roses Single Barrel Limited Edition 2012....$63.99
Barrel Strength  57.4%
"For this year's Limited Edition Single Barrel release, our Master Distiller has hand selected one beautifully aged, Barrel Strength Bourbon from our 10 district Bourbon recipes.  This uncut, non chill-filtered and highly nuanced 12-year old greets you with a delicate smoky oak nose featuring ripe red cherries, nutmeg and hints of toasted almonds.  Creamy vanilla and caramel flavors combine with layers of rich honey, cinnamon and brown sugar, finishing long and smooth with soft undertones of toasted almonds.  Pronounced strokes and subtle touches can define a masterpiece, especially when you can pour it into a glass." -- label
