In a nutshell: A smooth and mellow Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey with a long and soft finish.
The lowdown: This brand of Bourbon, formerly known as Yellow Label, dates back to the 19th century and is made up of whiskeys aged for between 5 and 6 years. The hints of pears, apples and a gentle spiciness on the nose complement the crisp, soft and smooth flavours of fresh fruits with hints of pear and apple.It all leads to a smooth, mellow and lengthy finish.
The history of the Four Roses Distilllery goes back to the late 1800s, In 1888 Paul Jones Jr, the founder of the company, trademarked the name Four Roses and at that time the business was based in Louisville, Kentucky. Later, in 1922, they purchased the Frankfort Distilling Company, further expanding their operations. In 1943 the drinks conglomerate Seagrams purchased the Frankfort Distilling Co mainly to acquire the name 'Four Roses' by then one of the most recognized names in Bourbon. In 2002 Japan's Kirin Brewery Company purchased the brand and production facilities in Lawrenceburg, Kentucky and it's from here that their sought after bourbons are still made and distributed throughout the USA and wider world.
