Review #676 | /r/Bourbon Review #389 – Four Roses Private Selection OESK, Molly’s Selection
The Schtick: Four Roses releases single barrels of a specific recipe at cask strength as their private pick program. This is one of the best values in cask strength bourbon that heralds quality and availability, in my personal opinion.
Distiller: Four Roses
Bottler: Four Roses
ABV: 56% ABV
Age: 9 Years 8 Months
Nose: Sweet vanilla, caramel, some pepper and faint fruitiness.
Taste: Medium mouth feel, bot of heat. Sweet caramel. Honey, floral fruitiness, oaky with some nice pepper.
Finish: Medium length, growing bitter.
Overall: This was interesting – it’s the first 4R I really found bitter and that’s saying a lot given my love of the OESK recipe. That said, this is the first time I’ve noticed it in 4R, so I’m not alarmed.
Thanks for reading!
