Review #562 | /r/Bourbon Review #312 – Four Roses Private Selection OESK McScrooge’s Pick
The Schtick: Four Roses releases single barrels of a specific recipe at cask strength as their private pick program.
Distiller: Four Roses
Bottler: Four Roses
ABV: 57.1% ABV

Additional Info: Barrel EN-52-3L
Nose: Super prominent honey, caramel, toffee – everything sweet and pleasant. Like a really bold Werthers with a faint melon note.
Taste: Thick, rich. Medium heat. Sweet honey, confectioners sugar, caramel and toffee. Minute floral notes with some white pepper and faint fruitiness. Nice oak presence.
Finish: Long, no heat. Nice blend of pepper, oak, caramel and general sweetness. Really something.
Overall: Another home run 4R pick. The sweets and oak balance well and deliver another tried and true OESK combination for the win.
Thanks for reading!
