a really nice bourbon with a lot of flavor. only my 1st bottle but if they are all this good I'll make sure to always have one. warehouse TS, Barrel 30-3T
this is everyday drinkable and one to have on hand for guests...like Goldilocks says...not too weak, not too strong...this one’s just right! Caramel, Vanilla not overdone but not watery by any means. Yum...
pleasant corn/vanilla sweetness
rich, smooth corn and caramel with little burn
follows through nicely with my palate assessment...
Caramel, oak, vanilla and spices. Medium spicy finish
My first touch on bourbon. I was really excited to try this one since all of my whisk(e)y experience has consisted of scotch.
I firs decided to taste it without water.
On the nose it has caramel, vanilla, and strangely carrots? Never have smelled carrots before from a whiskey. Oak is quite dominant as well, but not too much.
On the palette, woah, the strong 50 % ABV kicks in. Oak is very dominant, as well as the caramel & carrot flavor. From the taste I also see now the difference between older and younger whiskeys. This being the youngest whiskey I have tasted, it is more dry and The finish is shorter. Maybe after oxidizing for a while it might taste different.
After adding some water the smell is way more familiar to the scotch whiskies, the carrot flavour changed to even more caramel. The taste is also more complex now, and has somehow liquorice background. But still, quite dry and short after taste.
This introduction to bourbon was definetly interesting. I might need to let the liquid oxidize for a little bit to get more out of it, but it definetly showed me the differences between scotch and bourbon, from which, at least now, I still prefer the first one.
Very floral, perfumy, lots of oak barrel, very little sweetness, smooth medium finish.
Notes of caramel and vanilla with a space and wood flavor
spice and caramel aroma
notes of caramel and vanilla with a spice and wood flabor
Definitely one for a spot in the cabinet from now on. Sweet and Spicy with a savoury finish.
Barrel char, white pepper spiciness. leather and oak.
tad bright on the palate followed by brown sugar molasses, slight earthy mustyness on the backend
spicy and herbal finish
Nase: mega viel Karamell, super süß, Alkohol für 50% doch relativ mild, ein paar Gewürze, leichter Klebstoff
Gaumen: überraschend milder Antritt mit der Süße aus der Nase, weicht aber schnell Pfeffer und anderen Gewürzen. Der hat richtig was zu bieten.
Abgang: hier kommt erstmals der Alkohol stärker durch, leichte Schärfe und Holz.
Fazit: Single Barrel Amis kannte ich bisher nur den Jack Daniel's, der dem von Four Roses nicht annähernd das Wasser reichen kann.
Surprisingly mild for 50%. Complex flavors, opens up after a few drops of water. Cherry is quite strong on this one.
Full-bodied, yet smooth and spicy with a very mellow finish. Unlike other high abv bourbons, this selection from Four Roses has a deceptively tame character.
The Best Bourbon for such a reasonable price
Vanilla, biscuit, old spice, cinnamon and Chinese five spice, some caramel fudge and a beautiful oaky nuttiness
the wood and spice lead with an overlay of vanilla icing and cherry flavoured candy floss.
fresh cherries, and caramel and a nice oak and chestnut.
Aggressively overpowering. The taste would be good without so much strength
Great bourbon. Very smooth. Also works well for an old fashioned.
This is a great bourbon with a good price tag and flavour.
Another very enjoyable one coming from Four Roses. A bit more feisty and complex than the regular bourbon. A bit less smooth aswell,
though it gets smoother as it sits a while.
Apple, maple syrup and vanille on the nose.
Oaky, spicy and medicinal. Very oily with a warm and pretty long finish.
The further the bottle empties the better I enjoy this one. Getting really accustomed to this one, definitely my favorite Four Roses
I get cherries and oak on the nose. Notes of oak, rye, and wood spice. Medium bodied, doesn't quite coat the mouth the way I would like. Finish is dry, medium in length, and mainly oak. Very enjoyable.
Really good. It is a little hot, but I really enjoyed it anyway. Will try to keep on hand from now. Maybe just the batch I got but lots of cinnamon in this one but enough sweet to go with it.
A little ethanol but not enough to turn me away and it does improve very quickly. Then it's kind of subtle with vanilla and oak.
Surprising after nosing with lots of flavor. Again, maybe it's just the batch I got but cinnamon jumps out at me making it pretty spicy as well as a little rye spice. It reminds me of fireball candy in a subtle way because once your through the spice some sweetness comes through as honey/brown sugar. Finally just a touch of bitter charred oak. Mouthfeel was pleasent maybe just a little hot on the tongue.
Medium but nice, a little burn but that's not to say it's harsh. Spicy and a touch bitter
a little hot
Great on the nose. High heat on the tongue.
high alcohol first impression..
Great whiskey, very similar to other bourbons though. A lot of pleasant aromas, like vanilla, clementines and black locust flowers, with deep oak and butter notes.
Very sweet and pretty. Vanilla and clementines, with the added perfume of black locust flowers, very similar to the distinct smell of the tree in front of my house in spring.
Simple with a lot of oak. Surprisingly pleasant for its lack of complexity.
Oak, with butter notes appearing later in the finish.
smooth and sweet. w some honey
Orange fruity nose.
Floral and more fruit in the first sip. Citrus and vanilla back for the finish. Pepper and some spice at the end of a medium long finish.
This particular pour is from a good bottle. However, my memory says the small batch I sampled a few months ago may have been a bit better. I tried neat, then with a splash that opened up sweetness. I tried with a few rocks and messed up. I found in a rocks pour, most of the good complexity dissapeared. The good news, this 100 proof dram is neither hot nor fiery nor spicy. It drinks neat very much like an 80 proof-er but with 100 proof flavor. Find another 100 proof SB that delivers all this for $39.(regular price $42)
Nice burn with a pleasant caramel sweetness.
Very nice ride through a hot summer day picnic rather than BBQ. Minty Cooling Herbal Tea finish with raw sweet peas.

makes you crave more
Immediately sweet, Carmel/toffee. No oily mouthfeel. Mild Kentucky hug, medium finish. Much more refined then their lower offerings. It doesn’t taste like liquorice - but has a similar sweetness.
Some alcohol burn, slight barnyard scent - but like a fresh barnyard, not manure. And light wood. Like wood you’d use to start a campfire. Fresh and light.
3 out of 5 for oily feel. Warm and burnt Carmel with a toffee sweetness. Crisp apple on the back burner.
Carmel’s and toffees. Light wood - cedar. Think a candy corn if it was aged...
Another good balanced spicy dram
Good bourbon. Alchohol and oak on the nose. Slight hint of rye but mostly vanilla, caramel and spice for sure. Decent finish with mouth burn on the edges and back.
Great vanilla and caramel aromas with oak tones and smooth finish. Very good whiskey and decent value.
lovely whiskey great smell and taste. liquid gold in a bottle
typical bourbon smell,vanilla oak caramel
lovely mouthfeel,it's oily,thick,sweet but not overwhelming,some spice,all in perfect balance
sweet and lingering
Caramel, bread pudding, and vanilla on the nose. Caramel, oak, spice, and pepper on the palette. Medium to long finish, with vanilla and spicy notes lingering
Spicy Vanilla with a long finish. Very much what "bourbon" should be.
great vanilla notes
Not a bad bourbon, interesting cherry notes. But I prefer the Knob Creek, which sits at a similar ABV and pric3
1st checkin, average finish
Spicey, with notes of vanilla, licorice and floral. Bold flavor and oily mouth feel. Nice long finish.
one of my favorites. Great add to any collection
Woody, vanilla, hints of dark fruit
vanilla, spice, oak, great mouth feel
nice slow fade, but not very long which is a shame for such a great tasting bourbon whiskey
spicy and sweet. it's a little harsh, but overall it's nice. I'd buy it again
Wonderful little bourbon, strong taste with easy finish
The more I drank this, the more I grew to appreciate it.

Spicy with notes of dark chocolate. Some fruity notes appear.
Oaky notes and dark chocolate on the finish.
strong with very defined taste
Too sweet for me. It was very smooth though. It's probably be good in a cocktail.
Great bourbon, love it.
sweet with floral notes and a surprisingly smooth finish for ~100 proof
very easy drinker with some burn
Was good in coke. Not a huge fan with ginger. Have yet to try it straight.
Very nice. Good balance and easy drinking for 100 proof.
One of my favorites
A good sweet bourbon, nice for sipping after supper.

robust but full, plumes, charred wood
Wood, spicy, smooth
Very smooth and tasty.
A good bourbon. High rye with high spice. Lower sweet and vanilla notes. ABV 50%.
Great all around blirbon.
Very smooth with Carmel and vanilla flavors. One of my favorite and a reasonable price
spicy, pear, cherry and toffee, some chocolate, toasted oak, really interesting, not an entry-level bourbon, but not out of reach either
sweet and smooth with a great medium mouth feel
A decent bourbon that rounds up over time in the bottle. Sweet taste with hints of caramel and vanilla. Works fantastic on an Old Fashioned. Shame it's just a tad over-priced here in Finland.
Awesome bourbon for the price. Notes of vanilla, cinnamon, and sweet spices with that classic Four Roses rye spice finish
Vanilla, spice, sweet cinnamon, hint of nutmeg, can pick up on the rye influence after a few sniffs and sips (Dill)
Cinnamon, smooth, rye spice, medium bodied, sweet
Spicy, a tiny bit briny, mellows out to a nice long spicy tingle
Excellent choice for my 1st single barrel bourbon. Subtle nose. A bit of burn but tons of flavor.
a very sweet caramel. little spicy neat due to the abv. small amount of oak at the finish. the finish is rather short. very easy bourbon neat.
strong alcohol nose with oak notes. med long burn that is tamed with ice. vanilla, Carmel, oak spice, sweet taste
Similar notes to the traditional Four Roses with caramel and brown sugar sweetness with a bit more bite and complexity that make it well worth ~$40 price range.
one of the better nothing I've had
nose is quite floral to me, rosewater and some lavender. On the palate the floral note makes way for sweet vanilla, caramel and cherry. Some oak too. No real bitterness on the finish.
Great bourbon for right around $40. Very enjoyable flavor for sipping with a little ice. The rye spice isn't overpowering and has well balanced finish.
taste of caramel
Not very consistent, but the good bottles are really nice. Rye spice, vanilla, leather, tobacco, apple notes.
burns from the second it hits your tongue all the way to the back of your throat. Makes it hard to taste any flavor
One of my favorites to sit and sip.
Easy sipping bourbon. Vanilla, banana, something a bit sour, but not unpleasant.
Un bourbon titrant 50 un cran au dessus des grands classiques.
Cherry, chocolate and oak all the way through for me. Can't really go wrong with any of the Four Roses, unless you way overpaid for some limited edition.
go to bourbon. caramel, vanilla and spice with a hint of cherries.
One of my all time favorite sipping whiskeys. very smooth with fruity notes
My go to sipping bourbon. Sweetness, fruitiness, oak.
Nose: berries, cherries, vanilla, caramel, and baking spices
Taste: berrries, pears, and allspice.
Finish: Long and sweet, dry, oaky, caramel and vanilla
Bold, spicy with a lasting flavor after taste.
Great bourbon with notes of plum, raising, cherry and vanilla. Complex but still smooth without being too friendly.
Vanilla and a tiny bit of honey
Ripe plum, vanillar, raisins and leather. Just a great great bourbon.
Dry finish with hints of oak
vanilla and caramel notes. Sharp and spicy on the tongue with oaky finish.
What a nice bourbon ... Was in to pick up a bottle of 4R Small Batch and found Single Barrel on the shelf. I secured a bottle and am glad I did. More complex than the Small Batch. May be a bit over priced at $41 USD, but I will add notes as the bottle expires.
Floral, but it works! Strong butterscotch, followed by brown sugar and light vanilla.
Toasted Oak up front followed by toffee, dark cherries and vanilla.
Almost a light medium finish; it is hard to believe this is a 100 proof bourbon.
Straight up or with a large cube good stuff.
Everyone is going to hate me. I was utterly disappointed by this bourbon. I expected a lot more. Perhaps it's because they haven't had 8 year old buck at half the price. It's still a pretty good bourbon. Everything initially reminded me of Buck Bourbon, except the fact that Buck is more well balanced and way smoother. Pun intended.
smooth with some spice. very floral at the end. sweet smell
Spicy and bold, Four Roses Single barrel is a go to bourbon. Floral and oak tones with a fruity finish
Honey, spice and flowers
Spicy, full bodied, oak
fruity and spicy
Spicy with a good taste at a great price. Add a single ice cube to lessen the harshness.
Great bourbon at a good price.
A hint of spice
sweet with just the right amount of spice!
Great whiskey for a bargain (€30)! spicy and Sweet with An 'Oily' mouthfeel. Better than the standard or small batch cousins and is a standard bottle you need to have in your collection! served well with Just a couple drops of water.
Very oak-ly, smooth and smells great! Better with ice instead of neat.
