The jury's still out on this one for me. It's a little too floral which translates to a little too bitter at times....I like it as a nightcap, when my tastebuds are a little rundown, but it's too sharp & pungent for my early in the day. I don't think I would buy this again -- I'm having a hard time making it through the bottle. In contrast, I like the 4R1B quite a bit.
"A person can work up a mean, mean thirst after a hard day of nothing much at all . . . "
I don't think floral is the correct description of 4RSmB.
It reminds me of yeast that could have been shared with Dickel, if that makes any sense.
If you want to taste floral get some 4R Mariage, good floral, it is a very surprising bourbon.
God gave me wisdom but the Devil gave me style!
