Unique blend of four excellent Bourbons.

Four Roses Distillery is a special place with a special page in history. One of only six distilleries that were permitted to operate during Prohibition to produce medicinal Bourbon, it has an intriguing history. Sitting on the banks of the Salt River in the serene rural part of Kentucky, it saw ups and downs, until it was resurrected in 2002. Today, the Lawrenceburg distillery creates top-notch Bourbons, each with its special twist.

Small Batch Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey is one of the special ones. Four Roses has two different mash bills and five different yeast strains, which creates ten unique recipes. Four of those recipes are blended to make Small Batch, a unique and perfectly balanced Bourbon. Each Bourbon is aged for at least four years, hand-selected and blended. The rich spicy flavors come from high rye content of two of the Bourbons, while the other two bring lighter fruity flavors. Four Roses Small Batch won 21 awards, including two gold medals at San Francisco World Spirits Competition. The best way to enjoy this amber beauty is neat or on the rocks.

Ratings & Reviews
guest
guest,
Caramel and spice in smell and taste. It has a nice sweet taste with a medium bite. Good to sip but a good cocktail candidate.
 
David
David,
Agree with the Flaviar tasting notes as this is a really nice sipper. Love the vanilla and dark chocolate finish. Just ordered my second bottle!!
 
Richard
Richard,
go small batch - not single barrel - a great chewy bourbon.. deep dark fruit flavors (plums and blackberries over lemons) and a complex spicy palate and finish....
 
Jeff
Jeff,
Tad harsh with simple notes.
 
Patrick
Patrick,
Strong floral notes
 
Jason
Jason,
Sweet smell but not strong sweet taste. Spicy, get a long drawn burn at the end. Def a complex flavor.
 
Matt
Matt,
Good flavor and lasting in the back of the throat
 
Ivan
Ivan,
A fine tasting mature bourbon. There's a lot of complexity here. Some spice, vanilla, and oaky notes but none are too overbearing. It's very subtle in its flavoring. The finish is long and warm and the spice is what stands out in the finish.
 
Gabriel
Gabriel,
Seems very muted. Can definitely pull out things but most things are very faint, on my nose/palate at least. Nose: Sweet, subdued, faint potpourri Palate: BBQ (faint), savory, well rounded, spicy (peppery), rye, barley
 
Thomas
Thomas,

Probably one of the finest and most honest takes on this website. I'm sold, thanks Charlie.
Ira
Ira,
Nice simple everyday sipping bourbon. Lots of corn and caramel. Maybe not my first dram of the night if I want to have something special but it's an excellent follow-up. I'm looking forward to trying some of their next-tier stuff.

Very smooth and yet deep flavors. This is a good bourbon to be a bar staple
 
Shawn
Shawn,
With a splash of water - sweet and spicy with some ethanol heat for sure. Aroma is sweet and boozy as well. Not as much oak as I was hoping but good to keep in the regular rotation.
 
Michael
Michael,
Nice every day drink, has a sweet vanilla taste that can be enjoyed neat in the summer
 
Anderson
Anderson,
This is my current daily driver bourbon. I has a nice sweetness on the nose and tongue. It has a little bite, but not too bad. It finishes nicely. It's a good value. Makes a good Manhattan.
 
Todd

Smooth taste and nice finish, a great value for the price and my go to Bourbon after a long day of work.
 
Sergio
Sergio,
It has a sweet smell to the nose. It also has a honey taste but a kick of spice for a finish. Not my go to drink. For the price it's ok.
 
Mark
Mark,
Unless you put it on the rocks, it bites.

Great every day bourbon. Could go back and forth with Elijah Craig as my go to, everyday bourbon.

Frank
Frank,
Spicy to start then mellows to a full flavor. Very smooth for a 104 proof bourbon. Great on the rocks or with a splash of water.
 
Alex
Alex,
Smooth
 
Scott
Scott,
Another of the great value bourbons. I like the slightly sweet start and slightly spicy finish. Its similar, but a lesser version of the Single Barrel 4R. Overall a really good bourbon, especially at its price point.

Got a bite. Don’t get smooth. Decent flavor and finishes well.

Spicy and good! Great whiskey for the price but I don’t think the flavor evolves too much
 
Leo
Leo,
A great daily sip!
 
Paul
Paul,
Not a bad whiskey for the price. Could I sip on it all night...probably not. Nice spicy flavor that does linger in the mouth. Not to sweet.
 
Antonio
Antonio,
Great for the price. Will definitely be getting again.
 
Constantine
Constantine,
Interesting flavor mix. A bit of a bite but still delicious.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Flavors of dark cherry and brown sugar on the palate. Very good bourbon.
 
Colton
Colton,
Spicy Peppery with a nice Sweetness
 
Alexander
Alexander,
Regularly my go to whiskey. Caramel notes and slight spice go well together. I can comfortable drink it straight or make a cocktail with it and it compliments well and can hold its own against whiskeys of a similar price and higher.
 
Jason
Jason,
Easy drinking, great bourbon. Smooth and light bite at the back end.
 
Beau
Beau,
Very nice, sweet, smooth bourbon.

Right up there as one of the top bourbons in my stock. Smooth, very enjoyable.
 
Tom
Tom,
Such a unique flavor. My go to bourbon
 
Aaron
Aaron,
This is one of the best buys in bourbon. While it holds its own in a cocktail I prefer it neat. I get mostly woody notes on the nose, stonefruit and cinnamon on the palette. The mouthfeel is very smooth and decadent with a long, spicy finish and notes of vanilla. If I had to keep just one bottle in the cabinet this would be a contender.
 
Nancy
Nancy,
Bought this and Elijah Craig. Like the Elijah Craig much better.
 
Dylan
Dylan,
I'm a novice, but I really liked this one aside from it being on the pricey side for my current taste/budget. Easy to drink, but has more character than Monkey Shoulder, which is another good beginner whiskey that I liked.
 
Luke
Luke,
Buttery caramelized brown sugar nose and flavor
 
guest
guest,
Smooth tasting with a very subtle spice at the end. Taste of sweetness of vanilla. Sweet smell of hint of cherry without over powering alcohol.
 
Anna
Anna,
This one tried very hard, but I still haven't found a bourbon that I actually enjoy. Predominantly sugary with a petrol finish.
 
Carlos
Carlos,
one of the best bottles I've had so far.

Too smooth. No bite at all. The single barrel is waaay better.

Vanilla, caramel, fruit and floral on the nose. Taste of caramel apple, vanilla, rose, spice and oak. Overall not bad, gave 6 stars because even my favorites have been rated 9 and I liked them much more.

Great bourbon for the price. Love the vanilla and plum notes up front. Just the right amount of spice and alcohol to finish. Simply smooth all around Really excellent value. I would consider this an ideal every day bourbon.

Delicious
 
Patrick
Patrick,
Was referred by a friend to this....big mistake! In the end it was the single barrel that was supposed to be recommended. This is too sour and overblown with ethanol flavor and aroma! One the worst bourbons I've ever had...and that says a lot.

Nice smooth vanilla fruity sipping bourbon. Nice spice.
 
Thomas
Thomas,
This is a solid everyday whiskey. It has a bit of spice on the front end and fades into a smooth fruit pretty quickly. The finish a bit short but pleasant.

This is a lot better than I thought it'd be.
 
Mike
Mike,
Love this one. Great flavor profile. Neat or with a single cube.
 
Jason
Jason,
Big fan of Four Roses in general. Small batch offers a more consistent experience than the single barrel and is much better than the base product. That being said I like the crazy variance from single barrels. But this is a solid product. Four Roses is a different kind of animal in the bourbon world with their various recipes/blends.
 
Rick
Rick,
Always a favorite for me. Just the right amount of sweetness balanced with a peppery spice on the palate and nose for me. One I'd highly recommend for the money that can compete with many higher priced bourbons
 
Daniel
Daniel,
Strong flavor but an extremely smooth finish. A perfect bourbon to have in a flask while skiing to keep you warm on the lifts!
 
Scott
Scott,
Strong bold flavor with a smooth finish

Little spicy for my taste, kind of dry. Burns more than expected.

One of my favorites along with the Single barrel!
 
Michael

Great value! better than many bourbons at twice the price.
 
Christina
Christina,
It's okay? Just so inferior to the single barrel I can't buy it again. Spend a little more and be happier.

Tasty!

Extremely smooth
 
Bruce
Bruce,
A very smooth bourbon which was enjoyed by all. An excellent choice for sure. Exceptionally Good!
 
Dane
Dane,
A very smooth bourbon, perfect for drinking neat. At it's price point it's in a league of it's own for a "small batch" bourbon.
 
Homer
Homer,
This is a go to when I have a few friends over and I don’t feel like pouring away all my sought after single malts. It’s a solid Bourbon that people tend to really enjoy and I’ve had plenty of these bottles in my home bar but maybe a bit sweet for my taste these days.
