Saw a few bottles on the shelf today, 120th anniv, 40th anniv, 2009 marriage, and single barrel/small batch le's. Question is, I was leaning towards the 40th anniv (17 yr), but just wasn't sure. Anyone have a take?

2009 Mariage seems to be popular here

None of them will be bad, just go for what you think you might enjoy and your budget allows. :)

2009 Mariage just so you can trade it to one of the many Mariage junkies.:grin:

I wish I could find one of the Marriage bottle but based on Josh's comment I am guess that is why I cannot find it in the Metro Detroit area.

Best regards, Tony

That's like trying to decide which Lamborghini to drive today...there are no bad choices. 09 Marriage is a tasty one, as is the 2012 Single Barrel LE, but both very different. I've not had the pleasure of trying the others, but I do have the 2012 SMB LE and given what I've read about it, I think it's going to be right up my alley.

Don't blame me, blame the LCC! It was never sold here. I don't even think Four Roses was even sold in the state in 2009.

You're welcome to have as much as you want any time you stop by the RO. :cool:

Ah, now I see. I guess that is also why we do not have the SmB this year.

And looking forward to when we can get together again, wish I could make Chicago this weekend.

Back on topic, I would probably go for the Marriage but I love the 17yo SB I got at the gift shop so maybe the 17yo you have a chance at would be tasty.

Best regards, Tony

I would not hesitate to grab the Mariage over the others.

What SmB LEs? I'd grab the current year without hesitation if it was available.

I would definitely pick up the Mariage. Even though I figure I have a 10yr supply, I would absolutely buy more if I found it.

Damn, I wish I was in TN, I'd clear the shelves of all those 4R's!

My choice of the bunch is the Small batch expression, it just has a balance that appeals to me.

I'll have to look for a marriage, out of the selections that aren't barrel strength what is everyone's favorite?

I'm a big fan of the ordinary Small Batch (~$31/btl in Massachusetts) as a regular anyday pour. Great stuff.

I like the Yellow Label in summertime, affordable, pleasant and easy over ice.

I'm a big fan of the 2012 Single Barrel Le too, any opinions between the 08 and 09 Mariage?

This is simply awesome.
