The Schtick: This is a cask strength, single barrel release from Four Roses, featuring their OBSV recipe.

Distiller: Four Roses

Bottler: Four Roses

ABV: 62.8% ABV

Age: 8 Years, 10 Months

Warehouse / Barrel Info: MW-50-5N

Source: Sample

Nose: Clove, toffee, vanilla, allspice, pepper, caramels and sweet melon. Floral, sweet, spicy. Nice complexity here.

Taste: Medium, some heat, rich cocoa, honey, vanilla, floral fruits and pepper. Strong oaky backbone. Really diverse, and the cocoa is surprisingly prominent. The oak is a bit heavy handed though and it starts to dive into the dirt near the end.

Finish: Oak, tobacco, dry earthy pepper.

Overall: Too dry and oaky, spicy for my tastes. I was a little surprises since OBSV doesn’t usually come across ths dry to me, but this was an outlier for sure.

Thanks for reading!

Rank: 5
