Rock Town Four Grain Bourbon is a home-distilled product from the Rock Town Distillery out of Arkansas. While still containing hints of youth, the short time this bourbon has spent in the barrel has surprisingly treated it well. It strikes a good balance of sweeter flavors with more earthy ones, all the while keeping more youthful flavors at bay. This is a company I’ll be tracking as it will be interesting to see what doubling or tripling the time in a barrel does for their bourbon.
The bottle being reviewed comes from Batch 13.
