    For me, the best bourbon I have tasted. It fills the mouth with all the taste of Bourbon. Spicy, sweet and powerfull, perhaps due to the 50% alcool content.

    FYI, whiskey labeled as Straight Bourbon, cannot have any coloring or flavoring added by law. One of the best values in single barrel bourbon. A high rye affair, sure to please!

    Good - rich, intense, loads of spicy oaky barrel with a sweet but slightly herbaceous finish.

    My first bottle was amazing. So I bought another and got ear wax. The difference was a five star bourbon and a 2 star bourbon. Batch variations I suppose

    I got the batch LE 49IG. Nice oiliness, with spicy vanilla twist like one should expect. On the other hand, feels very young to me, although it should be at least 8 yo. Adding a drop water helps out to bring some flavors, but overall not value for money. At least my money.

    Delicious, heads and shoulders above more pedestrian bourbons like Makers Mark, Woodford, JD Single Barrel, etc.

    This drink had been sitting on the shelf of my local off license for quite some time and me being the bourbon drink that I am couldn''t allow it to sit there knowing I had already tried the the small batch version and was a fan of that, so I made the purchase and I was not disappointed, very good bourbon with hints of butterscotch well worth the money and superior to its small batch counterpart

    Fabulous - strong, smooth and sweet. Great over ice but even better at room temperature. It''s already made my Christmas wishlist

    This has to be one of my favourite bourbons, very smooth and full of flavour which leaves you wanting more.

    Let me start by saying I love whiskey. I love ryes, bourbons, scotches, etc... This is by far one of the smoothest and well balanced bourbons I have had. Compared to other higher priced whiskeys, I would definitely choose this one. It is very drinkable, has great flavor, and will not break your wallet.

    very tasty and incredibly smooth, i've tried 15 different bottles of bourbon and this one is far my favourite, i'll be amazed if i find something better on my bourbon journey.

    A stunning bourbon and my favourite for the money equal to my other favourite - Eagle Rare. I think this is a little more special and as good as Gold label Blantons. Very smooth and it defies it's 50% abv rating. Will never be without a bottle!

    I love bourbon and out of all the bourbons I've ever tried this is by far my favourite, it is a truly outstanding whiskey. Probably in my opinion so far the best bourbon whisky ever made but I still have many more to try. But would certainly recommend this it is truly excellent.

  • Angelo, Pittsburgh,PA USA 15 December 2013

    This bourbon is absolutely outstanding. After my first taste, it was set in stone that this is my favorite whiskey. Pouring it in a sipping glass, adding a little room temperature water, then letting it sit for a few. MAN does this open up. Absolutely stunning!

  • James 29 November 2013

    I have quite a few pricier bourbons in my cabinet, but this is quickly becoming one of my favorite sipping bourbons. The nose is thick caramel with vanilla and nice spice undertones. It is a single barrel, so the taste can vary substantially between bottles, but the general flavors are sweet, rich and well balanced with subtle spice. The first bottle I sampled was heavy with honey notes, the second mostly caramel and vanilla.

  • Duggie. 11 February 2013

    four roses as a warm prickely feel in the mouth then a firey and warm taste very nice with a cigar and leather finish. smell the glass the next moning.

    I hated bourbon until I tried this.

  • pAd 19 June 2012

    Gorgeous! Think tropical fruits and tonnes of spice. As said below it is too good really to go in cocktails..having said that I just had one last double shot left in my bottle and ended up using it for the base of a Bourbon Stone Sour. Wow! Four Roses flavour profile perfect bourbon for this coctail!....but I'd not want to do it too often with this one. Maybe there lower priced range would be worth keeping in mind for that.

  • Essex Guy 15 May 2012

    Like it says above. This is an outstanding bourbon with loads of strong fruity flavours that my noob palate is still trying to work out. Don't you dare add coke to it or put it in a cocktail, just sit back and enjoy it neat one little sip at a time - which is the ONLY way to appreciate a bourbon as good as this one.

  • Swissguy 27 June 2011

    I can only agree with Dave here. Dangerously good for that money!
