When you drink Four Roses Single Barrel, don't rely on your taste buds alone. Your sense of smell is actually 10,000 times more powerful than taste. While this isn't ideal at a festival, it does wonders for enjoying bourbon. Known as the nose, your first smell of this bourbon provides a floral, spicy, woody and fruity aroma with hints of caramel, vanilla, cocoa and maple syrup. When you bring it to your lips, it tacks on hints of plum and cherry while offering a robust, mellow and full-bodied finish. While these flavors may sound like they pair perfectly with a mixer or even breakfast, don't let anything sully its complexities. Drink neat or on the rocks for the true experience.
