Review #946 – Four Roses Private Selection OBSK, Bounty Hunter Wines Selection

Review #946 | Bourbon Review #497 – Four Roses Private Selection OBSK, Bounty Hunter Wines 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.

This particular barrel was selected by Michael of Bounty Hunter Wines in Napa Valley, California. The OBSK recipe denotes a mashbill of 60% Corn, 35% Rye and 5% Malted Barley.


Distiller: Four Roses

Bottler: Four Roses

ABV: 60% ABV

Age: 10 Years 9 Months

Bottle: One of 132 Produced


Nose: Creamy vanilla, strawberries and faint cherry, honey, toffee and some spice. Mostly fruity, creamy and sweet.

Taste: Medium, oaky. Cocoa, pepper, toffee and caramel. Some light fruits like peach and cherry. Grows drier, with some tobacco and oak. Mild heat.

Finish: Medium to long but growing in heat. Lots of cocoa, oak, tobacco and come clove.

Overall: This was an interesting dram but it grew a little drier and hotter than I was hoping. The nose was great, though.

Thanks for reading!

Rank: 6
