Winner of the Best Bourbon 7 years and under award at the 2010 World Whiskey Competition, the Four Roses Yellow Label Bourbon is very Jack Daniels esque, but for shots or sipping, we give Four Roses the edge.  Not only is the Four Roses Yellow Label a couple dollars cheaper than Jack Daniels, the Yellow Label has an overall more complex and enticing flavor.  The Yellow Label is sweet and smooth with a great finish.  Although a bit tart and dry, this bourbon is also crisp with hints of fruit and honey.  The flavor is exceptional for a middle shelf bourbon and is perfect for a mixer.  Next time you reach for that bottle of Jack Daniels Tennessee Whiskey, reconsider the Four Roses Yellow Label Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey.  You won’t be disappointed.
