  • WHY: Four Roses Standard Yellow Label Bourbon is one of the softest, smoothest, and easiest whiskies there is, bringing serious value for the dollar. For classic cocktails or something delicious on the rocks, there are few Bourbons this easy to enjoy. Don’t let the price fool you; there’s nothing “cheap” about this whiskey other than the cost.
  • HOW: Four Roses used to be owned by Seagrams, which means the distillery needed to be versatile in its capabilities for blending. Even today, having been purchased by Kirin and dedicated entirely to Bourbon production, the distillery makes ten different Bourbon recipes: two different mashbills with five different strains of yeast. The Yellow Label is a blend of all ten recipes. 
  • WHAT: Four Roses’ versatility is what makes it so unique as a distillery. The brand’s various expressions, with the exception of the single barrel, are actually marriages of different recipes rather than the result of a singular mashbill. The distillery categorizes its ten recipes by mashbill and by yeast strain. Mashbill B is 60% corn, 35% rye, and 5% malted barley, while Mashbill E is 75% corn, 20% rye, and 5% malted barley. The five yeasts are also coded by letter and characterized by the flavors they impart to the whiskey. V = delicate fruit, K = spicy, O = rich fruit, Q = floral, F = herbaceous. Four Roses Yellow Label is soft and creamy on the palate with plenty of soft vanilla on the finish. It’s bottled at 40% ABV.
