I toured their distillery a few weeks ago. Great time for anyone that has the opportunity. They give you great information on the differences between their three primary bourbon offerings. This gives a good breakdown of how and why the different recipes vary: http://fourrosesbourbon.com/the-process/
Also, little known fact about Four Roses: they produce two bourbon lines that are not available in the United States. They are only available in Japan.
