WHISKEY DREAMS – Four Roses Small Batch Bourbon Manhattan

I’ve had people rave over Four Roses Small Batch Bourbon, and those people were not happy when they saw my rating of 66/100. I stand by that rating. I drank a few glasses of this Four Roses neat and the aftertaste costs it a lot of points.

The odd thing however is that when you add that to a Manhattan, it really kicks butt. The aftertaste turns into a nice spice, and this turns into an amazing Manhattan, boosting its score by a full 10 points to 76/100.


  • Turns a bottle with a strong aftertaste into a beautiful cocktail.
  • Cost effective. When mixed as a Manhattan, this is an amazing cocktail.


  • Four Roses isn’t really that expensive, so what’s the con to making Manhattan’s with it?
