Four Roses Strength

Four Roses Barrel Strength Wine Details

Description: In 2008, we celebrate the 120th anniversary of the Four Roses name with this Barrel Strength Limited Edition Single Barrel Bourbon. This is an uncut, non-chill filtered Single Barrel Bourbon that has matured slowly and gracefully 12 years in the consistent temperatures of one of our unique single story rack warehouses. Rarely has Bourbon aged this long in oak become so rich and mellow. Robust spiciness and delicate, fruity flavors greet you with hints of nutmeg, vanilla, toasted almonds, baked apples and pears. The long, smooth finish carries suggestions of caramel and chocolate. More than 100 proof.
