Jim Rutledge takes time to carefully choose several barrels of varrying ages and recipes from the 10 unique recipes of Four Roses.

For the 2012 Limited Edition Small Batch, Jim told BourbonBlog.com this past week at a Four Roses dinner where we sampled the new limited edition, that this took a series of many months.

He finally decided on 17-year-old bourbon comes from Four Roses’ OBSV recipe, which expressed delicate fruit, spicy and creamy characteristics when he tasted it.

In addition, the 2012 Limited Edition Small Batch also includes a 12-year-old OBSK, a 12-year-old OESK as well as an 11-year-old OBSV, all married together to create one of BourbonBlog.com‘s favorite Limited Edition Small Batch from Four Roses ever! You’ve heard the phrase, “It just keeps getting better.”

With this particular annual Bourbon release, it is so true.

In June 2012 , for the second consecutive year, Four Roses landed third onthe list of the 140 Top “Five Star Spirits in the World,” compiled by renowned liquor industry critic, F. Paul Pacult, for the 2012 Limited  Edition Single Barrel release.

The 2011 Limited Edition Small Batch was also featured in last year’s list.

Approximately 4,000 bottles of the Four Roses 2012 Limited Edition Small Batch Bourbon are planned for distribution in September to U.S. markets where the brand is currently available.

 

 

Four Roses 2012 Limited Edition Small Batch Review

GlencairnCOLOR: Medium Amber to slightly dark amber

NOSE: Delicate and pleasant blend of the finest cuban cigar smoke, musky warehouse char backed with stone fruit.   As stated earlier, an alluring quality of walking into a lounge of the finest cuban cigars, chocolates, after an exotic meal

TASTE: Starts with rich yet mellow blend of DNA found Four Roses Bourbons with slighty sticky oak element. Then goes to chocolate truffles laced with caramel. A sophsticared verison of cadbury caramello, but think of Godiva or Vosges.

Midpalate, the bourbon kicks up both warmth and spice and delivering  hints of Indian cooking spices a mild note of sweet curry with coconut.

FINISH: Warm and creamy. Deep, rich mellow hallmark that. At the last breathe of this bourbon, it clings to the mouthfeel not in an annoying and sticky fashion, but in a luscious wonder

Alert your tastebuds to ready for  an adventurous swim. We believe that any who dare to add ice to this one will only be pulling the drain stopper too soon. Jim often recommends a touch of water to open up the flavours a bit.
