This is a single barrel from Four Roses using the OBSO Recipe. This is another fun one - I have the recipe, and the proof, and the tier. This is from Tier 2. But that's it. We're flying blind here, which has become sort of fun. Let's give it a go.
Brown sugar, baking spice, pepper and cloves. Rich and savory leaning in the dessert and spice forward direction.
Sweet brown sugar, medium mouth feel, faint heat. Spicy clove, rich herbal spice and some orange zest.
Long, rich and herbal. A hint of heat, but very well behaved. This is really quite nice.
This is pretty nice. That spicy B mash bill is bringing the spice, and the fruits are here in that orange peel I so often find in O yeasts. Delicious, despite the big question mark on selection, age and barrel. If I had to guess, I'd put this in the 9 year range.
