Tasting Notes

We've just received another round of incredible casks from our dear friends at Four Roses. This was one of these easiest and most difficult experiences I've ever had selecting a cask at Four Roses. That's because they rolled out a bunch of 10 year old whiskies. This was the oldest whisky in the batch which I was sure would make it to 11 years before we bottled it, but it was bottled 1 month and one day early so it sits a reasonable 10 years and 10 months. This cask was aged on the east side of warehouse G and is bottled at a seriously powerful 127.2 proof. This is REAL high for Four Roses since the whiskies entry proof is lower proof than most distillers in Kentucky and likely the result of a particularly hot and dry position in the warehouse. The whiskey itself is filled with tension and depth, but shows lovely nuance of dried stone fruit and exotic spice on the nose. The high proof is not obvious on the plate, but the chewy texture reminds us that this is some serious stuff. The flag ship OBSV whiskey from Four Roses offers a wonderful balanced experience combining the intense rye spice and sweet fruit that Four Roses is renowned for.

    This, to me, is the most classic of the bunch, but at a whopping 64%, a splash of water really opens it up. The rye influence is apparent, but paired with the higher proof, it comes off as more of a candied dryness. Super well balanced by the fruitier yeast, giving it a touch of grape/melon-ish flavors. A splash of water brings out a bit more, like a dry Christmas tree, and a nice mellowness.

    I always love when we get new exclusive single select barrels from Four Roses, and The OBSV 10 Year is definitely a bottle that is worthy in any bourbon drinker's collection. The nose is very pleasant and inviting, and of course, tasting it is another completely different experience in it's own right. Cinnamon, caramel, and also some citrus flavors, this a damn good bottle of Bourbon, and a fantastic exclusive from K&L.
