Nine year old Four had an entrancing brightness of darkened gold color that was topped of with an effervescent bubbling head.
Cider is evident in the nose with a peppery spiciness and then a dry cereal malt finish.
The flavors are interesting in that they don't really go together yet they seem to flow effortlessly. It starts with a lavender taste with some juniper. Then a wine like fruit flavor followed by toffee and pecans. Finally it ends in a peppermint like coolness which lends to feel.
You never know what your going to get after almost a decade but this one still looks and tastes good.
