    Love this bourbon. Reasonably priced and very flavorful. I'm still a bourbon novice but even I can tell the difference. If you're interested in exploring the wonders of bourbon, this is an excellent baseline to start at.


Bourbon is a corn-based, aged spirit that, while legally can be produced anywhere in the U.S., is Kentucky’s signature liquor; in fact, Kentucky distilleries make 95% of the world’s bourbon and the Bluegrass State hosts over a million visitors annually for bourbon tasting tourism.
Because of the liquor’s aging process variation, bourbon’s colors range from light amber to dark caramel and each bottle must contain at least 40% ABV. Bourbon can only be called bourbon if it’s aged in an oak barrel; barrels must be new and are pre-charred to help the liquid extract as much flavor as possible from the wood.
Much like how a square is a rectangle, but a rectangle is not a square, bourbon is a whiskey — but because of the stricter standards set for bourbon distillers, most whiskies are not considered bourbons.
While both whiskey and bourbon are made from the same base ingredients (a predominantly corn mash, yeast and water), a spirit can only be called bourbon if it’s crafted in the United States, surpasses a minimum 40% ABV and is aged in new, charred, white oak barrels. Bourbons are generally on the younger side of the whiskey family (compared to older whiskies like scotch) and thus deliver a sweeter profile.
Bourbon’s ingredient list is short and sweet (literally): corn, other grains, water and yeast. Barley, wheat and rye grains are often featured in the mash composition alongside the liquor’s signature corn base, but even so, the FDA considers straight bourbon as a gluten-free product that is safe for those with Celiac Disease or for individuals who suffer from other forms of gluten intolerance.
Raise a glass to science: While rye, barley and wheat all contain the gluten protein, the actual gluten is removed during the bourbon’s distillation process, in which the gluten molecules are separated from the actual distillate used to make the final product.

Drizly's take

Experts selected four handcrafted Bourbon recipes carefully to fashion the heart of Four Roses Small Batch. Both mashbills used in these formulas combine high-quality corn with heavy rye content to give the drink a spicy kick. The marriage of Mashbill B with two proprietary yeasts produce rich, fruity flavors with hints of rye and baking spice, while Mashbill E combines with the same yeasts to add highlights of vanilla and enhance the existing aroma. 

Surprise friends by pairing this bourbon with southern delicacies like fried green tomatoes and a rack of grilled ribs at your next barbecue. For a real treat, break out the cigars. The spicy bite of this flavorful Bourbon plays nicely off the sweeter notes of a Padrón or Fuente. 

Peruse this and other Four Roses bourbon selections to find your favorite new tipple. Check to see if Drizly has made it to your city, or look for liquor stores on Drizly near you.
