“From the beginning of crafting this year’s limited edition small batch Bourbon, two particular batches stood out to me as potential candidates to go into the blend – a 14-year-old recipe batch that is remarkably smooth and rich on the palate, and a 20-year-old recipe batch that exhibits the best fruit barrel and spice qualities of extra aged Bourbon,” said Brent Elliott, Four Roses Master Distiller. “The test blends revolved around those two batches until we landed on a liquid with a perfect balance that is unique, layered, mellow and elegant.”
The 2022 Limited Edition Small Batch Bourbon offers delicate aromas of brown sugar, dark cherries and seasoned oak. The Bourbon is complemented by the warm flavors of apricot and barrel tones that melt into a delicate and distinct finish, boasting creamy vanilla, ripe berries and light cinnamon.
Four Roses will distribute approximately 14,100, 750ml hand-numbered bottles of the 2022 Limited Edition Small Batch Bourbon to be sold in the United States with a suggested retail price of $179.99.
In addition to the special bottling rolling out to select retailers next month, Four Roses will offer a limited quantity for sale at the Four Roses Distillery Visitor Center via a public lottery draw. Individuals may register for the lottery from August 22 to August 26 by visiting the Four Roses website. Those who are selected via random draw will schedule appointments to pick up their purchase at the Four Roses Distillery.
