75 General Review of Four Roses Small Batch Select

The accolades of Four Roses Small Batch Select have been many over the past few years. Because of this, I expected a little more from it based on this, some of the reviews, and the fact that it's aged 6-7 years. Here are my brief thoughts.

Detailed Tasting Notes

Nose Review - Rating: 75

Very mild cinnamon spice aroma. Initially, there's not much on the nose other than that note and mild ethanol and spiciness.

Palate Review - Rating: 75

Four Roses Small Batch Select has a nice proof level at 104, but the flavor lacks. Black pepper, oak, and spice. Very little complexity. No viscosity.

Finish Review - Rating: 77

The finish's flavor is one-dimensional. However, its length is good; medium length, radiating, and warm going down.

Uniqueness Review - Rating: 75

There is nothing unique about Four Roses Small Batch Select.

Value Review - Rating: 75

Smell IS taste. I am just a guy who has been hit with the bourbon bug and who has come to the conclusion that life is too short to drink average tasting bourbons. Go Gators!
