They say it all began when the founder became smitten by the beauty of a Southern belle. She answered “Yes” to a proposal by wearing a corsage of four red roses. Ahhh. The rest is history or is it?
 
Four Roses was established in 1888. It is somewhat unclear where the name Four Roses comes from, as several different stories are told about. It was probably named for company founder Rufus Mathewson Rose, his brother Origen, and their two sons. 
 
Around the end of the 1950s, despite the popularity of the brand, owners decided to discontinue the sale of Four Roses Bourbon in order to focus on sales of blended Whiskey. Four Roses continued to be unavailable as straight Bourbon in the U.S. for more than 40 years – until 2002, when they again focused exclusively on Four Roses Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey. 
 
Four Roses distills ten separate Bourbons using two mash recipes and five yeast strains.
 
Trivia:
Four Roses is the preferred drink of hard-boiled detective Philip Marlowe.

The temperatures of American warehouses are much higher, so the pace of maturation is much quicker for Bourbons than for Scotch Whiskies

I think that in 1963 it cost $4.99 for a fifth. Now.....wow
Kevin
Excellent Bourbon in my opinion. Smooth oaky caramel with a very long finish that enjoyably stays with you for a little while.

Couldn't believe it was from Four Roses. They have quite a history to overcome. John Wirth

Very smooth, a whisky for a less experience drinker. Sweet, honey, caramel, fruity, oak, nutty. This is one nobody wouldn't drink. The nose is not as good as a average SM in this category, typical Bourbon. It lacks a depth of a older single malt and the aftertaste is short, but I recommend this if your more a Lowland or Speyside drinker. I bought it in the sale for just € 26. So much better than Jack Daniel's Black. It's even a match against Chivas 12, Glenfiddich 12 and Glenlivet 12, totally different and therefore interesting to have it aside your classic SM. Not a disappointment, nice bottle. 50%!

Maybe the best thing I've ever put in my mouth.

Good
Eric
Smooth with a hint of citrus.
Steven
Of the Bourbons pack this was undoubtedly my favourite. Smooth and refined it was to my taste head and shoulders above the others. I may even have to buy a whole bottle.
Aleksandr
A bit too strong
Chip
One of the few I could probably drink neat
