Whiskey Network Review #311 | /r/Bourbon Review #176 – Four Roses PS OBSQ KL Selection, 114.2pf | 57.1% ABV

Recipe: OBSQ

Pick: K&L Wines Select

Bottled: March 4th, 2016

Age: 8yr 11mo

Proof: 114.2pf | 57.1%

Warehouse / Barrel: LE 36-2C

Source: Bottle, Purchased

Nose: Floral honey, butterscotch, caramel, pepper, buttery toffee

Taste: Thick oily mouthfeel, mild heat, toffee floral perfume, caramel, pepper

Finish: Long and rich, warming but not too hot. Lots of toffee, fruity floral notes, caramel, cream, pepper and some faint melon (weird, right?)

Overall: Phenomenal bottle and I’m really quite pleased with it. This fella disappeared in record time and for good reason. Delicious, proofed well, complex and balanced. Sad to see it scoot off into the fading horizon. I’m rating this a Rank 7, no doubts.

Thanks for reading!
