    Four Roses

    I just found out the a friend is going to Louisville for the weekend an offered to pick some Bourbon while they ar there. Got to love Good Friends. Anyway all I could think to ask for was a bottle of Four Roses Single Barrel. So if they are lucky enough to find any how much am I likely to pay for a bottle? Thanks in advance

    Seems like I paid about $38 for mine in October while in Bowling Green.

    38 is on the high side. Best price I saw a few weeks ago was 29 in Lexington. Try Liquor Barn in Louisville.

    Well, not being able to find my receipt from 2 days ago, I'm gonna say under $30, but not much under.

    Don't forget the Small Batch, both that and the Single Barrel are great!

    Not sure if the Very Rare Old Heaven Hill is available in your neck of the woods, but for the $12 I paid when in Kentucky I found that to be a very good bargain!

    Don't overlook the Four Roses yellow label either. They're all good.

    Just don't do what I did, made the trek all the way out there and broke 1 of 2 bottles on the drive out of KY! DOH! Although the car smelled fantastic.
