"The notes for this bourbon say the barrels were chosen specifically for their clove and orchard fruit characteristics, and these are indeed the first things to register at initial sip. It's a very creamy bourbon, with notes of caramel and toffee, and a classic Four Roses oak-driven leatheriness. Considering its somewhat high proof, goes down very smooth."
