Four Roses Small Batch is a step up from the classic Four Roses Bourbon, showcasing the variety of mashbills that the distillers have to work with in Lawrenceburg - and their talents at making them sing together.
Ten bourbon recipes are produced by Four Roses, and four of then are blended together to create this approachable but flavoursome expression. Nose: The nose is quite subtle and smooth, there are notes of winter spice and buttered granary toast with thick honey. Palate: The palate is much fuller with a lovely balance.
There are notes of manuka honey, winter spice, toasty oak, a little crème anglaise and thick fruit.
Finish: The finish is of good length with a resurgence from the crème anglaise.

16th November 2018 A really nice sip-friendly bourbon, with loads of typical bourbon notes, amped up a bit. Some well balanced spice, dark sweet fruit and buttery, juicy oak.
Will be perfect for the summer, having a wee bit of dram during barbecues. Would love to know where Mr expensive can get this for under £20??
The Whisky Flaneur 23rd September 2015 I was really surprised by this, but not pleasantly.
I've bought a lot of bourbons high and low priced and this was the only bottle I have ever got bored of and couldn't wait to move on from.
It does have a unique taste and that's obviously going to be a subjective thing, but if you like your bourbon rich and full of caramel flavours you're maybe better of spending your dollars/pounds/euros/krugerrands elsewhere.
