This is a cask strength, single barrel release from Four Roses, featuring their OESF recipe.
Cocoa, graham cracker, ethanol, tobacco. Theres a nice oakiness and a very strong toffee note also.
Medium mouthfeel, no real heat here. Cocoa, pepper and oak are the front runners, some clove. Overall, its a hair muted.
Medium length, faint clove. Nice fruitiness comes out with a good cocoa, graham cracker finish.
I enjoyed this and found the oak and spice to be well balanced with the sweet toffee and graham cracker. I wish there was a little more going on in the palate, but this was far from disappointing.
