This is an OESV recipe single barrel Private Selection from Four Roses that was selected by 107 Liquors. At 10 years and 3 months old, this one is on the older side, so I'm looking forward to this one. Let's dive in.
Toffee, waffle cone, red berries and custard. Sweet, fruity, fairly decadent.
Medium mouth feel, some caramel, praline, honey, red berries and a rich clove note. This is quintessential four roses and it is delicious. Heat is in check, clearly a lower proof bottling.
Heat grows a little with time, rich clove, tannic oaky structure and some toffee. Really nice transition here, without becoming too tannic.
I don’t always find myself a fan of OESV but this is striding just right. Yum.
