    Re: Four Roses For the Novice

    I've only had one bottle of SB, about 2/3 finished by now that a friend bought me last fall. Are all the single barrels one recipes by default or is the marking somewhere? Just looked at mine and don't see anything about the recipe used.

    Re: Four Roses For the Novice

    I asked the same thing last week. All the standard SB offerings are OBSV: 60/35/5 mashbill, delicate fruit, spicey and creamy.

    Re: Four Roses For the Novice

    I started with the Yellow Label. I still like it as a mellow summertime pour and makes a very good mint Julep. I'd start there with an open mind. I remember when ANY four roses was very hard to find anywhere. The yellow label was a delicacy. Yellow label helps me appreciate the ltd eds and the single barrel.

    Re: Four Roses For the Novice

    I know where I can get one in 1B. What is a "reasonable" price for that?

    That may be the first one I get.

    Just the standard single barrel, you mean? It's about $30 here, but depending on where you live could vary a bit.

    Just dropped by my LLS, the one they have is Small Batch, for $26.00.

    I'll probably go back in a couple of hours and pick one up.

    Re: Four Roses For the Novice

    Keep in mind when you say single barrel there is the standard Single Barrel (OBSV?) and there are many different retailer single barrel picks that are typically barrel strength and can be any of the 10 recipes. Also remember it's a single barrel bottling and there are some differences from barrel to barrel even in the shelf juice.

    This bottle says "Small Batch" on the label. Not "Single Barrel".
