Four Roses 2009 Limited Edition Bourbon
Four Roses Bourbon is releasing its latest limited edition single barrel collection. The Four Roses Single Barrel Limited Edition 2009 Release will be uncut and not chill filtered and should hit stores next month. The distillery plans to produce up to 1,800 bottles from the selected barrels. The 11-year-old whisky offers notes of honeysuckle, roasted nuts, toffee and dark chocolate with a mellow finish of sweet fruit and honey.
Chuck Cowdery received a preview of the limited edition last month and reports that the bourbon has an unusual bite that persists in the aftertaste" with tastes of citrus, licorice, honey, and wheatgrass. Four Roses generally sells for around $40, the cost for the limited edition is usually a bit higher.
