Four Roses Distillery releases ad new Limited Edition Small Batch Bourbon, adding to its collection of special bottling showcasing Four Roses' ability to work with 10 proprietary bourbon recipes to create unique and varied expressions.
The Limited Edition Small Batch will highlight three of Four Roses' 10 recipes. The three bourbons have been mingled at barrel strength to create a rich, complex spirit defined by soft oak, caramel and honeysuckle aromas. Subtle favors of cherries, apricot, light spice, honey and raspberries and present giving it a creamy, smooth and mellow finish.
The release is limited to coincide with the Kentucky Bourbon Festival. Approximately 3600 bottles of this uncut, not-chill filtered bourbon will be produced and distributed in markets where Four Roses is currently available.
The new Limited Edition Small Batch comes on the heels of Four Roses' most recent limited edition product - a single barren bourbon released this spring to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Lawrenceburg distillery building.
Unlike the Limited Edition Single Barrel, which represents one Four Roses recipe aged to perfection, the new Limited Edition Small Batch represents a select few bourbon barrels, representing more than one recipe, mingled together to create complex and layered flavors.
"The three recipes chosen for this small batch bourbon each express unique flavor characteristics that collectively create an exquisite, timeless bourbon," said Jim Rutledge, Four Roses Master Distiller. " As this bourbon is being released during our distillery building's 100th anniversary year, we believe this is a classic, well defined bourbon you'll not just savor, but long remember."
