Barrel strength Kentucky Straight Bourbon hand selected by Master Distiller, Jim Rutledge. Recipe OESF: 75% corn, 20% rye, 5% malted barely mashbill. Light spearmint, cinnamon, and vanilla bean on the nose. The palate includes mouth coating apricot, peach and light spearmint. Long, smooth and slightly minty finish.
We tasted Four Roses Private Selection Single Barrel (OESF) at Meeting No. 27 on August 28, 2014. We rated it very highly at 3.59 out of 5. Four Roses Private Selection Single Barrel (OESF) ranks 19th overall in Bourbon. At a street price of $75, this spirit is on the pricier side, but well worth the money.

Coats the tongue with a thick mucous of bourbon glory. I rested in between sips for several minutes, enjoying the sojourn to Kentucky greatly.

Definitely an aroma on this one, getting an herbaly/minty fragrance with dat musky barrel smell. I really like this even though the burn/fume coming off this thing made me almost cough.

Hints of licorice and sweaty socks. Sweet, but hard as well. After taste lingers for a bit. Water made this much better.
