    I have also heard Jim Rutledge say the 08 Marriage was the best bourbon FR ever made.

    Any ideas on the '09 Mariage? There is a bottle kicking around locally for $70, but I have only ever heard praise for the '08. Very floral indeed, a bit surprisingly for Four Roses, which I find to be all about balance and pleasant spiciness.

    And welcome Painkiller! That is an excellent price for the 08. You won't be disappointed.

    Buy it, drink it, tell us what you think about it.

    Well it seems as if I have no choice. I shall and I will. I believe the guy told me he has some way of getting more, not sure. Makes me hope he does. I'm so nervous I hope I don't drop the bottle and break it before I get home. Geez. I'll take a pic of the pour and post it (if I know how) and give you guys my thoughts. Hopefully tomorrow night. ( Rubbing hands with hidden glee ) Or maybe I should just leave it unopened as a collector bottle.
