Review #1534 – Four Roses OESV Private Selection 107 Liquors Selection

The Schtick: This is an OESV recipe single barrel Private Selection from Four Roses that was selected by 107 Liquors. At 10 years and 3 months old, this one is on the older side, so I’m looking forward to this one. Let’s dive in.

Review #1534 | Bourbon Review #662

Distiller: Four Roses

Bottler: Four Roses

Brand: Four Roses

Selection: N/A

ABV: 56.1% ABV

Age: 10 years 3 Months


Nose: Toffee, waffle cone, red berries and custard. Sweet, fruity, fairly decadent.

Taste: Medium mouth feel, some caramel, praline, honey, red berries and a rich clove note. This is quintessential four roses and it is delicious. Heat is in check, clearly a lower proof bottling.

Finish: Heat grows a little with time, rich clove, tannic oaky structure and some toffee. Really nice transition here, without becoming too tannic.

Overall: I don’t always find myself a fan of OESV but this is striding just right. Yum.

Thanks for reading!
