post icon

I didn’t know much about Four Roses Bourbon other than that my friend Ingrid really, really likes it!  We recently received a bottle of the Four Roses Single Barrel Bourbon with the identification of Warehouse DS and Barrel 3-1I.  Apparently, each of the Four Roses Single Barrel Bourbon bottles come marked with their barrel identification and warehouse storage location.  I thought that was pretty cool as bottles from different barrels can conceivably taste pretty different.  … Read more
