Lately we’ve been spending a lot of time with friends and crafting some great cocktails. One of the whiskey’s we’ve had on hand quite often and really enjoyed has been Four Roses Yellow Label. It’s easy to find, inexpensive, and does well in a number of different cocktails. In the past few weeks when enjoying some time with friends I have heard some great feedback from those who I’ve enjoyed this whiskey with. It is with great pleasure that I announce Four Roses Yellow Label as our September 2014 Whiskey of the Month. Please see our full review below.

Four Roses Yellow Label Our Rating: 83%

Name: Four Roses Yellow

Bottled By: Four Roses Distillery

ABV: 40%

Proof: 80

Age: Unknown

Notes: Our nose detects some toffee and caramel in Four Roses Yellow. Upon first sip we tasted some vanilla along with a sweet corn taste which mellowed out and in came a slight caramel taste. The finish is rather long with a spicy cinnamon taste with some slight oak flavor. Four Roses Yellow label is value bourbon and most likely used as a mixer by many. We tried ours on the rocks and with a splash. We enjoyed it best on the rocks.

Price: This bourbon is priced fairly low and should be available most places at well under $20 dollars.

History: The brand was introduced by the Frankfurt Distilling Company and was purchased by Seagram in 1943. Four Roses brand was a top seller for many years until being discontinued in the US at the end of the 1950’s. Four Roses was then marketed in other countries and became a top seller there. Four Roses continued to be unavailable in the US for more than 40 years until the brand ownership was changed again in 2002, when Seagram was purchased by Vivendi who sold most of its brands to Diageo which sold the Four Roses brand to Kirin. The master distiller at four roses is Jim Rutledge who has held this title since 1995.
