THE FOURTH ROSE COMING SPRING 2019
blog | 02/05/2019
We are very excited to share with our Mellow Moments Club members that we’re adding the fourth rose to our permanent lineup of Bourbons this spring—Small Batch Select. This special bottling will be our distillery’s first permanent product-line extension in more than 12 years, joining Four Roses Single Barrel, Four Roses Small Batch and Four Roses Bourbon.
Small Batch Select will be non-chill filtered and bottled at a 104 proof, and it will launch this spring in Kentucky, New York, California, Texas and Georgia. It will be available in additional locations in the future.
This entirely new Bourbon marks the biggest addition to Four Roses’ storied history since Brent Elliott became Master Distiller, so we sat down with him to get a bit more information about this new product. Here’s what Brent had to say:
“We wanted to add something to our lineup that brings that pure experience you get with a non-chill filtered Bourbon, while also showcasing some of our recipes and flavors that aren’t as forward facing in our other existing bottles.
While Small Batch Select can certainly be one of your special occasion Bourbons, we want it to be more accessible so you don’t hesitate to open up that bottle and enjoy it any time.”
-Brent Elliott, Four Roses Master Distiller
On the nose, Four Roses Small Batch Select offers raspberries, clove and nutmeg. As it hits the palate, it opens into flavors of apricot, ripe berries, vanilla and light oak. The finish lingers with notes of spearmint and a touch of cinnamon.
Each of the Bourbons selected for Small Batch Select have been aged for six and seven years. We look forward to sharing those Bourbon recipes, and more details, with you in the coming months.
