Four Roses Private Selects are arguably the best value in bourbon. Producing 10 different recipes regularly bottles at cask strength, plenty of variety is available to even the average consumer.
Vanilla, butter cream, caramel, toffee and a hint of oak. Almost sweet / savory combo of notes.
Medium oakiness, with a mildly rich mouthfeel. Middle of the road Id say. Sweet caramel, bitter floral notes and some cocoa. Really leans towards the peppery, cocoa, oaky, bitter side of the spectrum.
Medium in length but some really fierce heat. Theres some brief sweetness in the form of vanilla and caramel, but the oaky peppery cocoa and tannins dominate.
It's not bad, but its a bit too tannic, oaky, and bitter for me to really sing its praises. It's just fine.
