Four Roses has been around since 1888, making it through the prohibition period before disappearing from shelves for 40 years. Nowadays, the brand is a staple for Bourbon-loving Americans who enjoy it neat or on the rocks for the ultimate experience. It won several taste competitions over the past decade and works well as a versatile spirit.
It comes in at $47.99, narrowly skimming the $50 bracket with no satisfaction spared. It’s just one of Four Roses’ many successful bottles.
With notes of caramel, vanilla, raisins and a hint of charred oak, it’s safe to say that Four Roses’ Single Barrel Bourbon is a crowd-pleaser. This whiskey covers a lot of ground with a floral, spicy, woody and fruity aroma, a medium colour and a lingering finish.
