This is a Four Roses Single Barrel OESF selected by Liquor Barn. It was aged for 10 years and 8 months before being bottled at 56.6% ABV.
Nose: Dried herbs, virgin oak, strawberries – it lacks the typicaly vanilla/brown sugar notes I’d expect.
Palate: Vanilla, sawdust, mint, herbs de provence. Quite dry overall with very little sweetness.
Finish: Oak heavy with dried herbs and vanilla.
Value for the money: These barrel picks usually range between $50-$60 and are some of the best buys in bourbon currently. I’d pass on this particular one again though.
