First Four Roses line in 12 years.
 
The origin of the name “Four Roses” is a bit muddy – the most popular story says the distillery was founded by a druggist Rufus M. Rose, and that the four roses are his immediate family. What we do know for sure is that the company was established in 1888; that it was the only distillery that was allowed to operate during the Prohibition (medicinal alcohol remained legal – lucky doctors); and that they produce spankingly good Bourbon. The Master Distiller at Four Roses Is Brent Elliott and he came up with a ritzy and unique expression he calls Small Batch Select.
 
The exclusive line that joins Single Barrel, Small Batch, and Yellow Label, is a blend of six recipes, aged for 6 to 7 years. Four Roses produces ten base Bourbons and Small Batch Select utilizes the majority of them. It’s a completely new concoction that manages to be gentle and approachable despite being 104 Proof. Brent singled out eh “F strain” of yeast that was used for this release, saying it brings a complex character and a warm-spicy palate. Small Batch Select aims to please both the casual drinkers and Bourbon-heads. A little secret, though: adding a splash of water opens a whole new world.

Nicholas,
This is going to be hard to beat for a smooth sipping drink. Introduced my wife to Small batch bourbons and whiskies only to find out she “doesn’t like the hard stuff” and she hasn’t had the need to try others after Four Roses Small Batch hit her lips. This is now out “go to” and she’s always asking me keep it stocked. I would say that for the more distinguished connoisseur this is a premium dram. Can’t wait to visit the distillery this November!

First whiskey, goes down with a small burn but has the greatest flavor and finish.

Michael,
I keep going back to this, smooth with some pepper but not too much. It's mainstream bourbon, but just a little (little) "different" almost in an earthy way. Words fail me. I don't salivate for it while headed to the cabinet like some others, but I'll pick it almost every time anyway. I guess I'm trying to say that it's not a nectar of the whiskey muses but, well, yeah it is in its own way. I know... completely unusable review but that's my story (and I'm stickin' to it).

John,
I’m a Four Roses everything fan but this one wasn’t for me. A bit sterile and astringent tasting. Disappointed to say the least.

Michael,
Great addition to the Four Roses line up. Definitely like the higher proof with it being non-chill filtered. I put this one up there with the Single Barrel. Thank you Flaviar with offering this product as it is not yet available in my State.

Bret,
Good sweet, vanilla caramel start with a nice long oaky, cinnamon finish. Hints of spice in between. One of the better 4 roses I have tasted.

Favorite everyday bourbon.

Connor,
I dont usually like four roses but this was great. Totally worth the money and i dont say that 0ften.
 
Nick
Nick,
Much better than anticipated. Good balance of fruitiness and spice. Good mouthfeel and a finish that last longer than plenty of more expensive bottles... this is right up there with some of my favorite SiB offerings from 4R
 
Richard
Richard,
Instantly jumps to the top of my favorite bourbons. Baking spices on the nose, tiny hint of oak in the back. Flavor coats the tongue: cinnamon, tangy fruit and wood. Pleasantly lingers a while.
