    So now that Four Roses will be available outside KY...

    ..which do I get? I have family travelling to NYC this summer. I will order them to pick me up a bottle (or 11enty billion) when they go. Apparently only the pauper yellow label, the small batch, and the single barrel are available in the US. Will they extend all those to the Big Apple? WTF I gots to know! Thank you!

    My guess would be that the entire "domestic" line will be unveiled in New York.

    If you're only going to get one, my vote would be for the small batch.

    I'll definitely try all that are available unless the yellow label really isn't worth it (but I'll still probably get it anyway). Anyone know where I can get approximate pricing on this stuff?

    Just a thought I was having. Is Four Roses so sought after simply because it's only available in one state? Is it worth all the hype?

    In Kentucky, Four Roses yellow runs 16.00-18.00, Small Batch is about 25.00 and Single Barrel runs 30.00-32.00. The higher prices are from the distillery gift shop and the lower are from the open market.

    Haven't tried the standard yellow label but as for the other two: It's worth it... believe me, it's worth it.

    As someone who has access to pretty much everything, I can certify that all of the Four Roses expressions really are that good. They are both exceptional and distinctive.

    Re: So now that Four Roses will be available outside KY...

    Just wondering...does anyone know what the time table for Four Roses expanding its distribution is? And does anyone know what markets it will be in? All I have is a bottle of the yellow label that I have yet to open. Been meaning to take a drive to KY, but just haven't had the time.
