I like to believe that David OG gets better barrel samples down in LA than I do up here, but the reality is probably that he's just a better taster than I am. This barrel of Four Roses is freakin' P-E-R-F-E-C-T. Big, zippy blasts of cinnamon and wood spice, a solid wave of vanilla that you can ride all the way to the end, and a finish that finishes rich and long, with dark red fruits and a hint of banana. At a reasonable 53% you can sip it neat. It's a bit older than we usually get at 11 years, 3 months, so that might have something to do with it. All I know for sure is that I love it.
