The standard Four Roses Single Barrel Bourbon, not to be mistaken with the Four Roses Single Barrel Private Selection, is the distillery’s widely distributed single barrel bourbon that’s a staple at liquor stores across the US. Out of the 10 recipes they have, these single barrels always use the 35% high rye OBSV recipe, characterized as “delicate fruit and rye”. Unlike Four Roses Small Batch and Small Batch Select, which should be very consistent, the Single Barrel inevitably will have some variability. For your reference, this particular Single Barrel I’m reviewing came from warehouse JE and barrel 11-6V. This is my first time drinking this in a long time, so let’s learn more in this Four Roses Single Barrel Bourbon review.
*A big thank you to my friend Ryan B. for a sample of this bourbon.
