Whiskey Dreams – Four Roses Small Batch

Four Roses Small Batch bourbon was actually one of the first bourbons I tried, and back then I was drinking Jack. Four Roses opened my eyes to a totally different level of quality, so I will always think of it fondly.

Now that my bourbon horizons have expanded, I still think of Four Roses fondly, but I also have some other bottles to compare it to. Four Roses earns a score of 66/100, putting it firmly ahead of two thirds of other other bourbons. I’m also calling it an “Everyday Whiskey” because its affordable enough to drink whenever you want.

Pros

  • Light and spicy on the tongue.
  • Great starter bottle for new drinkers and an everyday sip alike.

Cons:

  • Can have a little edge on the first sip. I find a little water or an ice cube opens up the whiskey and takes that burn away.
