Four Roses Super Premium
Four Roses Super Premium aka Four Roses Platinum, is a Japan only export. It seems fairly popular among US whiskey fans, but it's hard to know if that's just because it's unavailable here. You know, the whiskey is always greener on the other side of the ocean, or something like that.

The nose is rich caramel and toffee, very Four Roses. The palate is spicy with mint, clove and preserved orange rind. The finish is peppery with menthol.
This is a good, straightforward Four Roses. Nothing I would fly to Japan for, but something I would gladly drink if I happened to be there.
