  • WHY: Four Roses Small Batch Select is the distillery’s recent upgrade to the standard Small Batch Bourbon, adding in two additional mashbill recipes and upping the proof to 52% ABV for extra pep. The whiskey is rich and robust, bringing sweet spices on the mid-palate with loads of vanilla on the finish.
  • 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 Small Batch Select uses six different 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. The Four Roses Small Batch Select clocks in at 104 proof with somewhere between 6-7 years of maturation.
