Four Roses has a unique approach to their bourbon making. Whereas most distilleries will have a single bourbon recipe, Four Roses actually has 10 distinct recipes that they can utilize. This is a combination of 2 different mash bills and 5 different yeast strains and only the very best is selected for their Small Batch series. In fact they are so good that Four Roses 2018 Small Batch – 130th Anniversary won World’s Best Bourbon at the 2019 Whisky Magazine World Whiskies Awards! Bottled to celebrate the 130th birthday of the Four Roses Distillery, this bourbon has a nose of vanilla, raspberries, creme brulee and ripe berries. The palate has apricots, mint, cinnamon, apple and oak, while the finish is long with cinnamon, fruits and vanilla.
