    #5 of 6 for the evening with regard to tasting order. I’ve pined for a taste of this - and it did not disappoint. It immediately reminded me of some very good single barrels but with a bit more dustiness and maturity on the nose. The bubblegum and buttered toast are there in spades. The palate is medium thickness in viscosity but is soft and almost playful. There’s zero heat and a burst of Juicy Fruit, chalked candy necklace and a spice almost resembling sandalwood. I could drink this all damn day. Interestingly, it reminds me in ways of the balance achieved with Cream of Kentucky 13y. Profile is quite different, mind you, but the easy going and balanced palate is there. Now Jim Rutledge left four roses in 2015 and this limited edition would be the craft of Brent Elliott, but I would argue there’s a silver lining that carries over at least to this 2017 blend that has Jim’s touch.

    Not my cup of tea at first. Hot with a ton of spice, but lacks the sweetness of a true bourbon and the nuance of a high rye. I suspect it would go well in an old fashioned but obviously you’re not pulling this bottle off the shelf for that. This gets significantly better as it opens up. The sweetness intensifies, the spice mellows into rich cinnamon, warm oak, black pepper and chocolate. The finish is medium at best.

    Very good lots of cherry oak and a tobacco finish.
