Four Roses makes some of the highest crafted whiskey in the world. It tastes wonderful. They are also well known for their blending and vatting abilities. Which is shown in their Yellow label bourbon(750ml for $17)

They are presently shut down because their warehouses are full. They really need to advertise.

Wild Turkey is right behind Four Roses, in my opinion. And both are way ahead of most others.

Wild Turkey runs a different style of operation from Four Roses. But, both make outstanding whiskies.

Where Four Roses makes many different versions of their juice...Wild Turkey prides themselves as making one distinct style of whisky(full bodied).

What makes both of their whiskies so good is the fact that they use a low distillation proof and barreling proof, which makes the whisky age faster and taste better.

....And Four Roses doesn't need to advertise more. That's retarded. Advertising doesn't make the whisky taste better...it makes it cost more. I try to buy whiskies that I have not seen adds for. Especially Makers Mark. Talk about overadvertised. How much do you think those adds and wax is costing you per bottle? I am guessing about $10 per handle??? Don't be a sucker...look for value in your liqour purchases.

...also, Informed.

If you are not a fan of full powered bourbons...WT might not be the whisky for you. It has alot of spice and alcohol content. Which, some are not acustom to. It is similar in power to an Islay Scotch, but of coarse they taste quite different.

My favorite WT product is...Wild Turkey Striaght Rye Whisky 101 proof($20/750ml). It's like eating fresh rye bread from the deli. Very rich, thick and spicey.
