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