$1139.88 Dozen
ABV: 40%
A big value, one litre direct import of the Kentucky Bourbon standard.

The Four Roses distillery is located in Lawrenceburg, Kentucky on the banks of the Salt River in Anderson County. The distillery has a unique Spanish Mission-style architecture rarely seen in Kentucky and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The company attributes their product's quality to several factors: A unique Limestone water source, the spring-fed Salt River; a high quality grain source (Four Roses are the only distillery using the same grain source for 45 years, paying a premium for quality); Two Mash Bills in daily production - one mash bill contains significantly more rye than any other Bourbon, resulting in a spicy, full-bodied taste; and five proprietary yeast strains, each producing uniquely different flavours.

Other Reviews... Nose: High-toned, crisp and citric: lemon, lime and tangerine peel with a hint of mintiness. Palate: Zesty. Lemon, honey and spice. Nice rye balance towards the finish. Finish: Touch of light woodiness getting oily as rye shows its hand. Comment: Very well-balanced. The uptown sophisticate, a discreetly charming member of the bourgeoisie. 40% Alc./Vol. Rating: 8/10 - David Broom, www.whiskymag.com
