    Well other than Dojo staff praising Eagle Rare (on the birthday herf) which i will more than likely buy a bottle this week. Does anyone have any opinions on 4 Roses Bourbon?

    I've had the eagle rare a couple times and I love it. It's fairly inexpensive and very good

    I'd do Eagle Rare over Four roses any day. Four Roses has a nice vanilla and spice but it seems to be a tad light, I prefer the strength of Eagle Rare...just my thought's though....

    Eagle Rare is way better than 4 Roses in my opinion. And since Eagle Rare Singe Barrel is only $24 it's hard to beat the value.

    However, in that same price range I might lean towards Knob Creek or Larceny.

    Spend 10 more buck and get Knob Creek Single Barrel and really kick up the volume!

    Have to vote for Four Roses, but only if it is their Single Barrel. WAY better than their low brow stuff. It has been my go to for awhile now. VERY smooth. Similar to Blantons. Give it a try. You will not be sorry.

    I would say 4 Roses gets REALLY good at the Barrel proof stage. But it can be hard to find.

    Haven't found Barrel Proof in my neck of the woods. But would love to try it.

    I'll have to vote 4 Roses on this one (single barrel). With Blantons being my current favorite, 4 Roses favors it so much. Very smooth. Kind of lighter tasting though. I also enjoy Eagle Rare, though at times it is a bit spicy for me.
