Four Grain whiskeys are at their best when they are able to showcase all of their individual parts. Black Button Four Grain Bourbon does this well by showcasing the corn and wheat’s sweetness, the maltiness from the barley, and the spice from the rye during its finish. Its lack of age is evident on its sip, and more aging time is needed to bring out more complexity as well as its oak component. As is, its fruit notes and maltiness make for a fun sipper.
