Four Roses to Honor Al Young
Story by: Justin Thompson
Four Roses fans will have something extra special to look forward to this fall when the company releases their annual Limited Edition Small Batch. According to public filings with the Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB), it looks like Four Roses will be honoring their long-time employee and brand historian, Al Young, with his own commemorative bottle.
Their Certificate of Label Approval filings shows the company submitted a label that clearly honors Young and his 50-year career with the company. The label also shows the Bourbons that will be blended to make up this release include a 23-year-old OBSV, 15-year-old OBSK, 13-year-old OESV and a 12-year-old OBSF.
Young is a well-known brand ambassador with Four Roses and authored the book FOUR ROSES: THE RETURN OF A WHISKEY LEGEND in 2010.
