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
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!
