Four Roses Small Batch Review

Distillery: Four Roses (owned by Kirin Brewery Company of Japan)
Expression:
Small Batch (approximately 11-13 years)
Category
: Bourbon
Region: Kentucky, USA
ABV: 45%

Ideally I’d be sampling this bottle in a rocking chair on a Kentucky porch during a  moonlit night while listening to crickets chirp away and breathing in some fresh Kentucky air.

But in the crowded hustle and bustle of Taipei City amidst a symphony of honking car horns  and the smell of 臭豆腐, it’s still a fantastic little bourbon.

Nice improvement on the Four Roses Yellow (Standard).

A well-balanced dram, and the higher rye content gives your pallet a swift kick in the pants.
