NON-CHILL FILTERED SMALL BATCH SELECT
blog | 03/07/2019
You may have seen a very special Four Roses announcement last month… 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 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 is so special because it marks the biggest addition to our storied history since Brent Elliott became Master Distiller, and it’s the first non-chill filtered product to ever be added to our permanent lineup. What does that mean? We sat down with Brent to find out.
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. Stay tuned in and make sure you are following us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for the latest Four Roses news. Cheers!
