Four Roses 2013 Limited Edition – Small Batch 125 Anniversary Edition [Re-Review]

Thanks to?/u/devoz[+177]?for pouring a sample for me. A few years ago one of those “odd” moments happened with Bourbon. Four Roses 2013 Limited Edition – Small Batch 125 Anniversary Edition, a special edition from a large company, was released in large enough quantities that most could have it. It wasn’t NAS, it wasn’t watered down, and it wasn’t bad. This was their anniversary edition. Taters… Continue reading Four Roses 2013 Limited Edition – Small Batch 125 Anniversary Edition [Re-Review]

Four Roses 2016 Limited Edition Barrel Strength

Thanks to /u/devoz for pouring me this sample. Four Roses 2016 Limited Edition Barrel Strength is something I almost feel like I shouldn’t have to explain. I mean, by now, even the newest of the new whiskey fans know of this, right? But that’d be unprofessional. Or something. Or more than I usually do. So for those of you not in the know, each year there’s a new… Continue reading Four Roses 2016 Limited Edition Barrel Strength

Four Roses Private Selection (OESK Prav Saraff)

Thanks to /u/devoz for pouring me a sample of this. It’s good one of us is reviewing it. We’ve all been here before, right? You are at a tasting, and someone has a Four Roses Private Selection. And you’re like “Hey, I already reviewed every single recipe. Why do another?” Then someone mentions that they all have different ages, are in different warehouses, how different barrels react differently,… Continue reading Four Roses Private Selection (OESK Prav Saraff)

Four Roses Private Selection (OBSF – Fine Wine & Good Spirits) [MYSTERY]

When people leave my nation of preference, Canada, and head to the country beneath us (in geography, not in a mocking sense), they ask me (and many other of my whiskey friends) what they should pick up. Yes, it’s interesting to go through lists and lists of whiskies and figure out which ones are worth it and which aren’t. And then there’s a simple yet… Continue reading Four Roses Private Selection (OBSF – Fine Wine & Good Spirits) [MYSTERY]

Four Roses Private Selection (OBSO Liquor Barn)

Thanks to /u/devoz for sharing this dram I am proud to say that I have reviewed one of each of the recipes from Four Roses. And after that, I declared that the most amazing part of any US company is the ability to make different whiskies and then blend them well. So of course I keep ending up with different single casks of each recipe. Just… Continue reading Four Roses Private Selection (OBSO Liquor Barn)

Four Roses Private Selection (OESF Tippins)

Thanks to /u/devoz for pouring me a sample while others reviewed something I’ve already had. Four Roses. I’ve said many times that they are one of my favourite bourbon companies. Why? Because they pay me lots and lots of money. That, of course, is a lie. A bald faced lie. If I was being paid, I’d say so. Seriously I make negative money writing these reviews. No,… Continue reading Four Roses Private Selection (OESF Tippins)

Four Roses 2015 Limited Edition Small Batch

Thanks to /u/devoz for sharing a dram of this whiskey. Number 2 of a recent tasting. No mysteries yet. I haven’t lost face yet. Except the wives are along this time. What if I say something truly horrible. Thank goodness not all of these are Cask Strength, just…. 8 of them. Fuck. I’m going to offend someone. Better keep drinking. Four Roses and I seem to… Continue reading Four Roses 2015 Limited Edition Small Batch

Four Roses Private Selection Single Barrel [All 10 Recipes]

I’m doing things a little bit different for this review, so apologies if it makes no sense, or is hard to read. There may not be mention of whisky being conscious and having genitalia. But no promises. So, Four Roses Private Selection Single Barrel. I finally get around to reviewing these. For those of you who don’t know, shame on you for not sleeping the… Continue reading Four Roses Private Selection Single Barrel [All 10 Recipes]

Four Roses Single Barrel (Dual Barrels)

Thanks to /u/devoz for these samples. I decided recently I’d try a little experiment. I have two different samples of Four Roses Single Barrel from 2015. I tried them blind, chosen by my wife, while making a very early Thanksgiving dinner before I collapsed after cooking for 8 hours. To say the least, I was trying them blind, but I was also knackered. Some people… Continue reading Four Roses Single Barrel (Dual Barrels)

Four Roses 2013 Limited Edition – Small Batch 125 Anniversary Edition

Geez, thank goodness I’ve got all that pomp and self-congratulations out of the way with the milestones. Time to get back and just enjoy some Bourbon now. With Zeus. Yeah, now is the time to take your mushrooms. I’ll wait. Good? Okay, let’s go. So last year the Four Roses Distillery were nice enough to come down from Mount Olympus, or up from Salt River,… Continue reading Four Roses 2013 Limited Edition – Small Batch 125 Anniversary Edition
