Excerpt: RYE! It dominates the finish, but as the tempo slows notes of caramel, oak, citrus and some dark fruit come out. This long, slightly dry, finish slowly fades to oak and remains a pleasant dance partner the entire time.
Excerpt: Balanced notes of honeyed vanilla, soft caramel, a basket of complex orchard fruit, blackberry, papaya, and a dusting of cocoa and nutmeg; smooth finish. Sophisticated, stylish, with well-defined flavors. A classic!

This is Four Roses 2013 Small Batch Limited Edition release - it is a blend of 18yr OBSV, 13yr OBSK and 13yr OESK and bottled at cask strength.
Sweet caramel, honey and vanilla. Raspberries, syrupy butterscotch, berries, oak and pepper.
Rich pepper, lots of nice oak, tobacco. Faintly bitter, but that quickly fades to vanilla, caramel and a deep earthy tobacco.
Long with some heat, but it is mild. Rich pepper, caramel, toffee, vanilla and faint tobacco.
Great, and a departure from a lot of the floral characteristics I get from more Four Roses releases. Really enjoyable and I'm not surprised given the constituents - some of my favorite 4R recipes (OBSK and OESK are in my top 3 4R recipes).
