Review #5 – Four Roses Single Barrel

Review #5 | /r/Bourbon Review #5 – Four Roses Single Barrel

The Schtick: This is a 100pf OBSV recipe release that sits on shelves next to Four Roses Small Batch and Yellow Label. Here in Wisconsin, it can be had for around $35-$40.


Distiller: Four Roses

Bottler: Four Roses

ABV: 50% ABV | 100pf

Recipe: OBSV

Age: NAS

Source: Bottle, purchased.


Nose: Vanilla, floral sweetness with a nice spicy note after a deep whiff. It’s all really well blended, very pleasant.

Taste: Butter, sugar and a nice rye kick. There’s some caramel, cloves and rich maple.

Finish: Surprisingly long and consistent, lots of butter and a little rye spiciness following through. It’s sweet and spicy, with the bourbon notes and higher rye playing well off of one and another.

Overall: This is a great budget bottle that exhibits top shelf flavor at mid shelf price. I don’t take price into account for reviews, but this is really a winner and there’s a reason it’s a well recommended gateway product.

Thanks for reading!
