Review #564 | /r/Bourbon Review #315 – Four Roses Private Selection OBSF MC’s Selection

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: 60.5% ABV

Age: 9 Years

Source: Sample

Additional Info: Barrel JE-64-4A


Nose: Clove, vanilla, caramel, allspice. Light, effervescent melon and floral fruitiness as well.

Taste: Thick, and rich, with the price of some heat. Lots of peppery spices like clove and allspice, some cocoa on the backend.

Finish: Medium length, with a bit of heat. Very spice forward, with cocoa and some sweet caramel tossed in also.

Overall: In sum, this was nice and rich but generally hotter than Id like. Im not sure that age and relative youth is a huge factor but its definitely a possibility. Overall, the profile leans a hair spicy for my tastes but I cant deny its high points.

Thanks for reading!
