Four Roses Kentucky Straight Bourbon / Japanese Import
A modern bottling of Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey from the Four Roses distillery in Lawrenceburg, Kentucky. Once always stated as a 6 year old, four Roses Master Distiller, Jim Rutledge, has confirmed that the modern iteration is a blend of 5.5 to 10 year old bourbons.
At one time the brand was produced by Seagram's who, preferring to promote their Crown Royal as the bourbon brand of choice in the US, limited Four Roses as a straight bourbon to the export market. US customers had to make do with a blended "light" whisky variant until the brand was acquired by Kirin in 2002, who re-introduced it to its native market.
This is the modern Kirin iteration, although it still an export bottle.
