Four Roses is an iconic distillery producing some of
the world's most sought after bourbon. Their limited edition
bottlings and many of their single barrel bottlings that gain
notoriety trade on the secondary for many times their retail value.
The head of production is the Master Distiller Brent Elliott. What
makes Four Roses different is that they have two mashbills and five
different yeast strains that produce 10 different bourbon recipes.
Brent is arguably the world most experienced expert when it comes
to yeast's impact on the flavor of bourbon. Yeast is a tricky
little organism that loves to mutate, which is terrible if you are
trying to maintain consistency of flavor. Every whiskey nerd
has a drive to understand why our whiskey tastes the way it does.
This short but information packed episode is a must
watch for every whiskey enthusiast.
