    four roses choice

    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.

    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.

    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.

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