It began when Paul Jones, Jr., the founder of Four Roses Bourbon, became smitten by the beauty of a Southern belle. It is said that he sent a proposal to her, and she replied that if her answer were “Yes,” she would wear a corsage of roses on her gown to the upcoming grand ball. Paul Jones waited for her answer excitedly on that night of the grand ball…when she showed up in her beautiful gown, she wore a corsage of four red roses. He later named his Bourbon “Four Roses” as a symbol of his devout passion for the lovely belle, a passion he thereafter transferred to making his beloved Four Roses Bourbon.
Amber color. Even aromas of floral honey, toasted grain, buttery caramel, and peppery spice. A silky, soft entry leads to a dryish medium body of cinnamon bark, caramel, and honeyed toasted rye and cornbread. Finishes with a long, vanilla, sweet corn, and sweet baking spice fade. Nice smoothness, balance and proportion.
