Proof66 Notes

Four Roses 2013 Limited Edition Barrel Strength bourbon is aged for 13 years in American Oak and blended from what they call 10 different bourbon recipes--these 10 recipes are itemized on their website and include a variety grain bills, all of them used in Four Roses labels. 5 of these recipes are 60% corn and the other 5 are 70% corn... the remaining grain is mostly rye with a small content of barley lending for a spicy, robust bourbon. It is bottled at "barrel strength," meaning it is not blended down with water and will come in a very high proof. (It is up to the imbiber to add their own water.) They call it a "masterpiece" and suggest looking for flavors of honey, brown sugar, and nutmeg. 

About the Producer:

Four Roses Distillery prides itself on owning five proprietary strains of yeast that produce ten distinct recipes. The name of the distillery and their bourbon comes from founder Paul Jones Jr and his marriage proposal: a yes meant she would wear a rose to the dance and--in true legendary form--she wore four in a corsage. The brand itself--according to a brief write-up in the January, 2013 edition of Tasting Panel Magazine--was founded in the 1930s (with roots as far back as 1888) to be bought by Seagram in 1943. Seagram pulled the brand from the US market in the 1960s and it wasn't reborn until 1994 at the hands of Master Distiller Jim Rutledge, who in his words: "Seagram's destroyed the brand, and we had to overcome that perception. In a way it's been fun, but in a way it's been a challenge." Today, the brand is owned by Kirin Brewery of Japan who acquired Four Roses in 2002.
