Four Roses Small Batch Bourbon
Four roses is a bourbon that I have heard about a considerable amount, but one that I have never tried. It did not disappoint.
This small batch bourbon has a deep, dark caramel color that is indicative of the years spent maturing in new oak barrels – one of the many strict requirements for an American whiskey to be classified as bourbon. The nose has the sweet aroma of molasses that is a predecessor to the smooth, warm taste.
The flavor of Four Roses is sweet and complex, with a deep, rich, chewy mouth feel. There are smoky notes of toffee, molasses, and caramel, with a quick finish that leaves you wanting another sip.
Four Roses small batch is a good whiskey, sweet and smooth with a complex flavor and excellent bouquet. One I’d recommend if you’re a bourbon fan looking for something new to try.
