Four Roses Bourbon is a multi-award winning spirit, which hails from Kentucky. It's been around since 1884 and was founded by Paul Jones Jr. on Louisville's Whiskey Row. The name comes from a marriage proposal gone right.

It seems that Jones asked his love to marry him, via sent proposal. She responded that if she were to wear four roses to a certain grand ball, then, her answer was, "Yes."

Affirmatively, she was wearing the corsage.

Single Barrel (100 proof)

Our nosing and first sip were wrought with a distinctive astringency. We tried it neat and did eventually notice a fruity following. The Single Barrel version packs a smooth punch. But, a punch nonetheless.

If you are not a whiskey person, then you will want to consume the Single Barrel with something else. The Single Barrel is excellent for just such a thing!

Small Batch (90 proof)

This version of Four Roses Bourbon is also strong, distinctive, bold and smooth. An initial sniff brings up clove and cinnamon. A sip will coat your mouth and you'll barely notice individual spaces. It is also a strong finish.
