Each month, Flight Club selects a club-endorsed “Pick of the Month.” The parameters on the Pick of the Month are (a) locally available in Wichita, Kansas (b) under $40 and (c) something believed to be a good value or limited availability at the moment. We invite everyone (Club members or not) to break open a bottle and provide comment and feedback.
This month, we’ve selected a bottle that is also featured in Monarch’s Bourbon Heritage Month punch card: Four Roses Small Batch. While we have previously written about Four Roses’ private selection single barrel lineup and limited releases, the Small Batch is a mid-shelf staple.
An enjoyable pour, a good mixer, and priced to buy. We recommend it.
Bottle: Four Roses Small Batch Bourbon
Age: Not age stated, but Four Roses ages every barrel at least 5 years prior to dumping.
Mash Bill: A combination of two – 75% corn, 20% rye, 5% malted barley; and 60% corn, 35% rye, and 5% malted barley.
Location: Available at most well-stocked liquor stores.
