Released in 2009, this limited edition is named after the French word for marriage and celebrates the blender’s art, and perhaps also the story of when Four Roses founder, Paul Jones Jr. proposed to a beautiful Southern belle.

This 2009 Mariage release is made from 19-year-old and 10-year-old bourbons with recipe code OBSK blended with 12-year-old OESO. (OB indicates a 35% rye mash bill and OE 20% rye) Bottled at barrel strength without chill filtration, 3,432 individually numbered bottles were released.

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 03/01/2011


(bottle No. 1890) Clear, burnished copper colour.


Spicy, Worcestershire sauce, woody nose with clove, cinnamon spice, pipe tobacco, tea tannins, lemon zest, stewed cherries and fresh mint aromas.


Tenderly watered to approx. 40% abv yielded smoky oak wafts over a cinnamon and allspice palate with cherry, caramel, lemon zest and minty flavours.


Smoky oak continues through the stewed fruit, tobacco finish with ends with coffee cake. One to remember for Desert Island Disc requests.
