In a couple of weeks, we will be attending an unbelievable charity event where we’ll sip Four Roses Bourbon to raise money for the Special Ops Xcursions. If we’re able to chat with Master Distiller, Brent Elliott about the new release, we’ll be sure to do so!

Here’s what Brent shared so far:

“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.”

Here are the notes provided by Four Roses:

“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.”

The Four Roses Small Batch Select will be a blend of multiple recipes, each aged between 6 and 7 years.

Considering the age and proof, it’s likely the price point will come in a touch higher than the single barrel price point. Between $45-$60 seems reasonable for this product.

We’re big fans of Four Roses and we’re excited to taste this one, so as soon as we have the opportunity to try it, we’ll let you know what we think!
