    375mls of Four Roses?

    As mentioned in another thread, I like this size of bottle since I love collecting and tasting different bourbons but don't drink them quickly enough.

    I saw this posted on a friends Instagram this morning:

    Those sure look like 375ml bottles, don't they? Otherwise that is a monstrous flask.

    Anyone know about this?

    That's the flask that comes in the Small Batch gift set. Those are full size bottles.

    Standard 750 bottles and a 6 oz. flask.

    They have 50 mls if you want to simply taste.

    Re: 375mls of Four Roses?

    Random thoughts: I would guess that Four Roses has bottle costs that exceed the average (excepting for YL) and that dissuades them from extending the size range. However, in my limited experience Four Roses bourbon doesn't really get better with air-time - usually it's as good as it gets in short order and can lose some magic when open for long. OTOH, when I have a bottle open, it seems to drain faster than average... So, summing it all up, do we need smaller Four Roses bottles? No.

    Cool! Thanks guys. And that is indeed a sizable flask.

    I have yet to meet a bourbon that has not improved with airtime, but this is good information to have. If anyone's small batch or single barrel bottles have gone too long I will happily dispose of them for only the price of shipping! Cheers.

    Re: 375mls of Four Roses?

    When I first looked at the picture it looked like a bad photoshop job - image of flask dropped in and not resized correctly. Then I pulled a 6 oz Four Roses flask out of my kitchen cabinet and a took an empty 750 ml single barrel bottle off of the top of my fridge and stood them next to each other. I was wrong, big flask + standard size bottle.
