Four Roses K&L Single Barrel OESQ Cask Strength Kentucky Bourbon 750ml (Previously $60)

SKU #1075085

We're back to the OESQ formula again, 70% corn and the same yeast strain as our first Four Roses barrel. This time around, however, the banana is more subdued (yet, still present) and the bold spices come alive. The nose is glorious - an undulating wave of carmelized vanilla, cinnamon, and, when a few drops of water are added, some sweet banana. Water makes all the difference to the palate as well. You would think that water would open up the fruits, but instead it brings out the wood. The toasty oak flavors are brimming already at cask strength, but those extra drops of water cause them to overflow and permeate the entirety of what's left. I can't decide if I like it more at cask strength or proofed down a bit. Either way, it's a beautiful whiskey, worthy of any bourbon lover's time. It finishes with a lovely hint of baking spices with dark red fruits. -David Driscoll, K&L Spirits Buyer

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.
