What's in a name? Four Roses Single Barrel 100 Proof whiskey is called whiskey because it's produced in America. Were it from Scotland it would be spelled Four Roses Single Barrel 100 Proof whisky, rather than whiskey.
Nose: A balanced, rich, fruity nose. Notes of spices and chocolate. Toffee and vanilla.
Palate: Tart stone fruits, prunes, spices, morello cherries, cocoa and vanilla.
Finish: Oak, chocolate, butterscotch.
We tried the sampler at the Old Talbott Tavern in Bardstown, KY.
seeing all the bourbon distilleries, I could remember 4 Roses.
Neither my husband or I were great fans of Bourbon, but the Smoothness of this Bourbon was warm and satisfying.
We bought a bottle for the old homestead and plan on many enjoyable sips.

I have to rate this one high as it is certainly one of the smoothest and easiest to drink Bourbons around. Very warm sensation without any burning. Good balance, some spice, but fruity in nose. Oakey finish. Just a good Bourbon, nothing fancy or out of the way different from other great single barrel's, but in my opinion, one of the best single barrel's...best part is, it's probably the most affordable good single barrel produced....JP from KY

smooth and a sublime single barrel Bourbon. When this bottle is empty I will be definitely be buying another.

This is a bottle i pull out on occasion, not an everyday sipper but can be if its the only bottle on the shelf. Pure quality and at 100 proof needs no water. Tasty and elegant is the best i can describe Four Roses bourbons.

I've seen it for under $30, it's a great whisky, but this site is wallet rape.

I'm sure our Scottish friends would say the same thing if they saw what we pay for their single malts over here as well! But yes, this is a 40-45 dollar whiskey tops. A good one tho.
