Product Details

Utterly complex on the nose, this single barrel Bourbon boasts aromas of fruit, spicy, flowers, caramel, vanilla, cocoa, maple syrup and oak. The robust, mellow and full-bodied palate shows hints of ripe plum and cherries, while the finish is smooth and delicately long. Complex and surprisingly smooth, this spirit is made from a mashbill of corn, rye and malted barley, and aged a minimum of eight years in charred new American oak barrels; it won a Double Gold medal at the 2014 Denver International Spirits Competition.

About the Producer

In 1884, Paul Jones, Jr. opened an office in a section of historic Main Street called Whiskey Row; four years later, he trademarked the name Four Rose. In 1922, the Paul Jones Co. purchased the Frankfort Distilling Co. In 1943, Seagram purchased the Frankfort Distilling Co. primarily to acquire the most noted and recognized name in the business at that time – Four Roses Kentucky Straight Bourbon. Even though Four Roses was the top-selling Bourbon in the U.S. in the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s, Seagram made the decision to discontinue the sale of Kentucky Straight Bourbon here, and Four Roses was moved to the rapidly growing European and Asian markets where it quickly became the top-selling Bourbon and remains a top-selling Bourbon in Europe and Japan. In February 2002, the Kirin Brewery Company, Ltd. purchased the Four Roses brand trademark and named the new acquisition Four Roses Distillery LLC. Now back in the U.S. after a lengthy absence, Four Roses is quickly earning a reputation as one of the finest names in the Bourbon world. Four Roses was named American Whiskey Distiller of the Year in 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2015 by Whisky Magazine.
