Four Roses Single Barrel
A premium Single Barrel Bourbon with a taste you’ll want to savor again and again. Complex, full bodied and surprisingly smooth with a delicate long finish that’s unbelievably mellow. Contains hints of ripe plum and cherry tastes with fruity, spicy aromas including maple syrup and cocoa. Drink straight up or on the rocks. 100 proof. 50% alcohol/volume.
While most distilleries age bourbon in warehouses that are many stories high, Four Roses ages its bourbon in a one-story warehouse to ensure that each barrel is aged in a similar environment. In addition, each bottle of Four Roses available through Caskers is the product of a single barrel (rather than a blend of multiple barrels), giving each bottle a unique flavor profile and history.
Four Roses Single Barrel Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is made from a mash of 60% corn, 35% rye and 5% malted barley. Straight bourbon must be aged for a minimum of two years - Four Roses Bourbon is aged for a minimum of eight years in newly charred, white-oak casks.
