New at the Wingtip Bar: Four Roses Single Barrel Bourbon

Beginning next week, Wingtip members will be able to enjoy a single barrel bourbon from Four Roses distillery of Lawrenceburg, Kentucky. The bourbon was selected by the Wingtip Bourbon Committee, who were tasked with tasting 10 different barrel selections from Four Roses before making their judicial decision.

They picked a barrel of bourbon that had been waiting for nearly nine years to become the flavor of Wingtip circa 2013.

The bourbon has only been tasted by the committee so far, but Wingtip Bartender Brian MacGregor tells us that the bourbon has a strong spice content, and was among the younger bourbons tasted. It is made up of 75% corn, 20% rye, and 5% malted barley. It’s also a whopper at 59.3% ABV.
