Review #565 | /r/Bourbon Review #316 – Four Roses Private Selection OESO Warehouse 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: 59% ABV
Age: 9 Years 8 Months
Additional Info: Barrel FN-81-41
Nose: Spicy and hot. Lots of clove, allspice and lots of fruity notes. Really prominent maple and that signature 4R spice.
Taste: Super fruity, loads of melon and strawberry. Also lots of heat. Medium mouthfeel. Backend womps with a lot of cinnamon, allspice and faint caramel.
Finish: Medium length with much more severe heat. Sweet vanilla and some fruity essence set in before more searing ethanol lead it out.
Overall: On one hand I liked that this was a unique profile but it was unbalanced and quite hot.
Thanks for reading!
