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.

Beautiful flavors with a splash of water.

It’s ok. For the price point there are far better choices out there.
 
Marcus

Might be too sweet without that bite but that makes it perfect. Wouldn't even guess it is 100 proof!

Excellent- can vary barrel to barrel This is a must try and reasonable price for the quality
 
Mike
Mike,
Bought a bottle when the craze first hit. Really enjoyed it. Have not had a good pour since. Inconsistent flavor would keep me from purchasing another bottle

Super smooth, agree that it is sweet, fruity, and caramelly.

My favorite of all time. Best for old fashions
 
Charles
Charles,
A very solid bourbon. Rye heavy. If you can find a private barrel pick which is significantly more expensive, they offer 10 recipes. Half are higher rye, half are higher corn. I prefer the higher corn...these are 9 or 10 out of 10 in my book. Well worth the price.

One of the most favorable bourbons out there for a very decent price. Top five.
 
Wesley
Wesley,
Sweet thick and smoky oak. It’s a higher rye mashbill but don’t let that scare you away. I have tried several rye’s and liked none of them. I do however, really like this.
 
Lynn
Lynn,
First hit very aromatic. Then long pleasant finish
 
Chris
Chris,
Pretty strong for bourbon, but after a drop or two of water it'll open up more flavors and is just delicious and smooth.

Patrick
Patrick,
I enjoyed this a lot. The only thing I didn't really like about it was the charred oak was a little more prominent than I'd prefer. Other than that it was good!

Larry
Larry,
smooth, with just a hint of a sweet finish, very nice
 
NICK
NICK,
Sweet aroma with hints of vanilla. Initially is sweet and transitions to carmel followed by spicy notes. Decently smooth for a bourbon. If I wasn’t having whistlepig I may go for a bottle of this.
 
guest
guest,
Nice
 
Marie
Marie,
Smells lovey, somewhat harsher than expected!
 
Nicholas
Nicholas,
This is the typical floral-y Four Roses mash blend, but at a slightly higher ABV, so it has a bit more intense/sparky hit ahead of the usual herbal finish.
 
Dale
Dale,
One of my staple bourbons.
 
Nicholas
Nicholas,
Spicy definitely taste the vanilla. Goes down smooth with a spice at the finish.
 
Matt

My go to burbon

Shawn

Full Cask strength, 112-125 proof with excellent hints of caramel, vanilla, etc... definitely my go to bottle
 
Kenneth
Kenneth,
I can’t say enough about how good this is.
 
Kerry
Kerry,
One of my favorites. Currently have a bottle of the private selections from Friar Tuck (OBSV), but Barrel proof versus the 100 proof standard. Well balanced. Caramel, vanilla, oaky.
 
Eric
Eric,
It's tasty, warms you right up in the winter months and will get you drunk enough to make poor life choices quite quickly. Mmmm...bourbon.
 
Ross
Ross,
Nose: light vanilla, toasted coconut. Tasting Notes: astringent, lightly sweet, long warm burn. Finish: long warm peppery burn, lightly sweet end. A little lacking for sipping, but stands up nicely in an old fashioned or julep.

Undrinkable
 
Glenn
Glenn,
A very good whiskey. It's a shame you can't list the recipe in your "details" as each single barrel is different. It has the recipe right on the bottle. A great woman's whiskey. My wife loves it. Neat.
 
Mark
Mark,
I'm just getting into bourbon and I liked this one a lot. It has a kick, but is smoother than some and is full flavored.
 
Doyle
Doyle,
My go-to favorite bourbon. Smooth and lingering flavors of caramel, fruit. Perfect for a late evening cigar conversation.
 
guest
guest,
An extremely good whiskey. It is a wonderful balance of flavor and ABV. In a world of many premium bourbons and escalating prices, Four Roses Single Barrel is an outstanding choice and value. I might add, their distillery tour is highly recommended. I also appreciate their own unique style of creating flavor profiles.
 
guest
guest,
Very flavorful. Floral and creamy as a bourbon should be. Super intense, you can feel it go all the way down to your stomach.
 
Johnnie
Johnnie,
Excellent mix of flavors and smooth
 
Eric
Eric,
Classic and timeless. Smooth finish with just a little bite. If you're a bourbon drinker, then you have to have this in your collection.
 
Chris
Chris,
Super smooth great whisky not quite Blanton's but a damn fine single barrel
 
guest
guest,
I find Four Roses Single Batch to be one of the most balanced bourbons on the market. It isn't as "caramel" as Maker's Mark. It isn't as "oaky" as Woodford Reserve, Larceny and Knob Creek. As a mixologist/bar tender, I find that this bourbon works perfectly in an Old Fashioned! This is one of my favorite spirits!!!
 
William
William,
Put bottle in freezer, when you want some pour it in a glass, no mixing needed. Great for sipping and sharing with friends. Also goes great with homemade lemonade.

I enjoyed the floral notes and bounty of flavors here.
 
Joseph
Joseph,
Floral, sweet, and smooth. Both this and their small batch are excellent, both in price and quality. Tastes deceivingly like a bottle twice the price. Enjoyed neat or with a few rocks. Because this is warm, smooth and not too boozey, it is a great steppingstone for introducing a friend to the world of bourbon.

I found it a bit harsh, though it mellowed nicely as ice melted. Finish was lingering, but a bit biting. I'm not getting the characteristics most seem to be. Will give it another run.

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
 
guest

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%!

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.
