Four Roses K&L Exclusive OBSF (March 2013) Single Barrel Cask Strength Bourbon (750ml)
Another barrel of Four Roses OBSF, you ask? Yes! And we'll keep ordering them as well until the distillery runs out of booze! While we continue to expand our lineup of outstanding single malts, brandies, gins, rums, and tequilas, there hasn't been too much action on the American whiskey front. There are fewer great Bourbons on the market everyday simply because supplies are low. The most sought-after expressions are highly-limited and almost impossible to get and the dependable ones are getting watered down (unless consumers speak out on their own behalf!). After dealing with this ongoing problem for the past two years, we've all become a bit jaded. Yet quietly and without a bunch of fanfare, Four Roses distillery has been trucking along, releasing top-shelf single barrel expressions without end. While the thrill seeker in us may tire of purchasing the same brand over and over again, the Bourbon connoisseur in us knows otherwise. This new barrel of OBSF is full of warming spice, cinnamon and sugar, big vanilla, and a healthy dose of oak on the backend. At full proof, this is perfect cocktail whiskey. It's also great for sipping on the rocks. It's simply great booze - period! As a buyer and whiskey super-fan, I'm always on the lookout for something new, but I never get tired of greatness. This barrel of Four Roses is as good as Bourbon gets. As long as it's available you can bet we'll be bringing it to our customers, who entrust us with finding them the best. (David Driscoll).
