This is a Four Roses OESO single barrel selected by Ace Spirits. It was aged for 12 years and bottled at 55.5% ABV.
Nose: Fruit punch weighted toward grape juice. Pineapples, green apple, subtle aged oak, and cinnamon.
Palate: Apple juice turning bitter after a few seconds. New oak with nutty notes.
Finish: Dry & herbal and relatively short.
Rating: 81/100 – If only the rest of it lived up to the nose…
Value for the money: These barrel picks usually range between $50-$60 and are some of the best buys in bourbon currently. I wouldn’t buy this particular bottle again though.
